Pom-Bucha “Jello Jigglers” (GAPS, Paleo, GF)

Standard

IMG_4480[1]

I’ve been intending to post this for awhile.  We really like it – made it tonight for Super Bowl treats last weekend.  Original recipe from the Holistic Squid. 🙂  I really like that it is a probiotic food as well!

You could use plain GT Synergy Kombucha, or make your own

Jello just does not photograph well.  No matter what I did.  Not pretty.  Tastes good anyhow.

Pom-Bucha “Jello Jigglers”:

16 oz bottle of Pom juice (we like the Pomegranate Blueberry one best)

16 oz kombucha

4 T. gelatin

Pour kombucha into an 8 x 8″ Pyrex baking dish.  Sprinkle gelatin over the kombucha and let it sit until moistened – about five minutes.  Heat Pom juice to boiling, then pour over kombucha/gelatin mixture.  Stir thoroughly until all the gelatin is dissolved.  Refrigerate for several hours.

Enjoy!

Apple Cinnamon Yogurt (GAPS intro legal, GF)

Standard

One of my kids and I are back on GAPS intro for a “health tweak”…  I randomly came up with this super easy snack (mostly out of desperation – but hey, it worked).  I have really appreciated it this past week, as our snacking options are pretty slim right now.

I always have a few quarts of yogurt on hand.  I make the GAPS legal variety according to this recipe. (always with whole milk!)   I use my Excalibur dehydrator to keep the temp stable for 24 hours.  I get my inexpensive yogurt starter cultures here.

Apple Cinnamon Yogurt (GAPS intro legal, GF)

I find that these measurements go well together though, although I’m guessing you could do more or less or any of them and it would work:

1 c. yogurt

1 c. cooked and mushed apple

1 T. cinnamon

Mix them all up until blended.  That’s it.  Take that, name-brand-low-fat-yogurt.  🙂  Who needs you???

 

Date Sweetened Banana Chia Pudding (GAPS, GF)

Standard

We had this for breakfast yesterday morning (and again today)…and it was so good.   Lots of good natural fats and Omegas, with minimal added sweetener.  I made a huge batch so we can get more than one meal out of it, but you can certainly adapt it however you see fit. 🙂 

Date Sweetened Banana Chia Pudding (GAPS, GF)

approx. 8 servings

2 cans coconut milk (whole, not low fat)

3/4 c. whole chia seed

1 T. vanilla (click here to see how to make your own)

10 pitted dates

5 bananas

Blend the coconut milk, vanilla, dates and bananas until smooth.  It can take a little while, and you may have to scrape the sides of the blender and help it along a bit.  Be patient, it’s worth it. 🙂

After the other ingredients are blended well, add the chia seed and blend until it is evenly dispersed.  Hand mix if you can’t get it well enough.  I think it would be preferable if you could chill this overnight…but I was short on time.  I made it, let it sit 15 minutes, and it was still good. 🙂 

You could have this for a good, healthy breakfast, snack or dessert.  Top with sliced bananas, chopped walnuts, whatever you want. 🙂  Enjoy!
