Hemp Milk Recipe

Hemp Milk

Last Updated on

I had purchased some hemp seeds a few months ago when I was watching one of Ani Phyo’s Raw Food Kitchen videos, but since I am already adding hemp protein I feel that I do not need them in my morning protein shake. I also made the mistake by ordering hemp seeds still in their shells and they also were not raw but heated. They are so tiny, I could not possibly shell them myself. I needed a use for them and found it, a hemp milk recipe! I am sure you can make the same recipe with raw hemp seeds, too. Continue reading “Hemp Milk Recipe”

Gluten Free Potatoes and Onion Recipe

Potatoes and Onions

Last Updated on

This recipe is so simple, yet so delicious. It was my mother’s recipe. Now it is one of my staple gluten free potato recipes. She’s been gone for some years, but it brings me comfort and makes me smile every time I make this dish. Kids tend to not like them very brown, but by all means brown them up as much as you desire. I usually do, unless my grandkids are over. Continue reading “Gluten Free Potatoes and Onion Recipe”

Gluten Fee Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream with Cookie Crust

Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream

Last Updated on

Traditional strawberry shortcake recipes are made with layers of angel food cake with a layer of whipped cream or strawberries and topped with one of the same. I used a plain gluten-free cookie recipe to line a ramekin; baked it; and tossed it in the freezer for a couple of hours. Once frozen I made some homemade vanilla ice cream; added a layer of it on top of the cookie; then a layer of strawberries in syrup; then another layer of ice cream; topped it all with sweetened gluten-free whipped cream and slices of frozen strawberries; and froze.

In yesterday’s episode of The Doctor Oz Show, April 26, 2010, a bar tender shared this red tornado drink recipe. It’s a great juice recipe and is naturally gluten-free. Made from many fresh fruit and vegetable juices, it sounds so yummy! It was suggested to make in a martini shaker, but I choose to add it to a blender with ice. Add vodka or not. Enjoy!

There a ton of variations to this recipe which is great because you’ll never tire of it. You can either keep it vegan or add meat, cheese, etc. You can use traditional shaped zucchini or round ones if you can get a hold of some. The one I used in the photo below is from my garden.

Watermelon Smoothie Recipe

Gluten Free Watermelon Smoothie

Last Updated on

The other day I was watching the Paula Deen show and she made water melon coolers. I happened to have had a huge watermelon that I had planned on using when I had company, but didn’t. Making a watermelon smoothie was a perfect way to consume the watermelon fast and watermelon is a great diuretic. I am allergic to citrus so I skipped the lemon juice, but wish I could have used it. But even without the lemon juice, these are

great! And if you choose to add Greek yogurt, it will assist those with candida, though they should avoiding sugary drink. Paula used watermelon, lemon juice and a big scoop of lemon sorbet. Lemon juice is also a great diuretic. I don’t recall her portion sizes on ingredients, but you can’t go wrong with this smoothie recipe, as it is very forgiving. I used Greek yogurt and pineapple juice, but you can use just about anything creamy with any juice you wish. Suggestions for creaminess are: vanilla ice cream, flavored yogurt, whipping cream, etc. All you need is a blender. Enjoy this refreshing watermelon smoothie! You can even make popsicles or other gluten free beverages and cocktails! Continue reading “Watermelon Smoothie Recipe”

Sweet and Spicy Gluten Free Pickles

I have been wanting to make some homemade pickles, which is something I have never done before, when I saw a bag of mini pickles at Costco the other day. I just had to have them! I created an easy pickle recipe that you can either spice up or not with red pepper flakes to your liking, as well as adjust the sweetness. Since our grandkids were visiting this week I was in a hurry and wanted a fast recipe so I opted to make sliced pickles instead of leaving those adorable little things whole. I hope you enjoy the recipe. Continue reading “Fast and Easy Homemade Gluten Free Sweet and Spicy Pickle Recipe – Zero Sodium!”

Low Sodium Southern Red Beans and Rice Recipe

New Orleans Southern Red Beans and Rice

Last Updated on

My mother made a few southern dishes that were family favorites. It’s been years since I made my mom’s red beans and rice recipe, but this time I changed things around, making it lower in sodium and by adding a little kick to heat it up a little. With or without heat, these beans are very flavorful. My mother use to always make them using a ham bone with lots of meat left on it. When not available she would use a ham hock, but didn’t like the additional fat, and I agree. To lessen the sodium content, I used very lean, very thin pork chops cut into bite sized pieces. When I tasted it, I could have sworn it was ham without all the salt! If you on a low sodium diet use the chops; if not use a ham bone if you can find one. Enjoy this southern dish, as I have for many decades. Continue reading “Low Sodium Southern Red Beans and Rice Recipe”
