Nammie's Butterscotch PuddingRecently, my MIL had surgery and her recovery involved clear liquids for a few days followed by soft foods. She requested the mint chocolate pudding (see earlier on my feed), but I knew after that was gone, she would want some flavor variety. This nutrient dense pudding was designed especially for her. Packing clean ingredients and muscle supporting protein (something you don’t usually see in pudding), this pudding has a secret ingredient. You might not ever guess it. It’s not a veggie. It’s not a root. It's something you can’t buy. Still can’t think of the secret ingredient that makes this pudding so amazingly delicious? Well, I’ll have to spill the beans…it’s chocked full of love. Ingredients4 pitted dates1/4 cup cashews (or cashew butter)3/4 cup coconut milk, full fat1/2 cup coconut oil, melted (like @anthonysgoods)1 scoop vanilla pea based protein powder (like @Nuzest_usa Smooth Vanilla Clean Lean Protein)1/4 cup lucuma powder1 teaspoon alcohol free vanillaPinch of saltMethodAdd first 4 ingredients to a high speed blender (like @vitamix). Process until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and process again until smooth. Pour into individual serving size dishes and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. If desired, sprinkle with chopped cacao wafers. Store left overs in the refrigerator for up to three days. …for more recipes like this and articles on life, please swing by www.stewardchicks.com#dairyfree #glutenfree #veganfood #plantbaseddiet #plantbasedfood #plantbasedvegan #vegetarian #healthyeating #cleaneats #anthonysgoods #dessert #desserts #nuzest_usa #thenewhealthy #sugarfree #foodisfuel #eatrealfood #healthyrecipes #veganfoodlovers #healthyfoodshare#bestofvegan #whatveganseat #eatvegan #vitamix #getinmybelly #realfood #goodmoodfood #eatpretty #functionalfood #refinedsugarfree

These rich and chewy bars will satisfy that chippy cookie craving, sans the gluten and dairy.

Best Ever Dairy Free YogurtSo…a while back on my feed, I posted a cashew based yogurt recipe that I had found at @cleaneatingmag. My dear friend @haleygoesvegan, adapted the recipe…which you can find on her feed. I took her adaptations and added a few more of my own…and after all that adapting…finally found the PERFECT yogurt! Not only is it protein strong, but it’s flavor and thickness is on point. This is a must make for everyone…even dairy lovers will be wonderfully satisfied! Ingredients:1 cup raw cashews1 pitted date1 cup cold water1 scoop vanilla pea based protein powder (like @Nuzest Smooth Vanilla Clean Lean Protein)2 probiotic capsules (I use Renew Life probiotics with 25 billion live cultures)1 teaspoon alcohol free vanilla, optionalMethodIn a high powered blender (like @vitamix) soak cashews and dates in one cup of cold water at least one hour. Add protein powder. Blend on high until completely smooth. Pour into a plastic or glass container. Add powder from probiotic capsules and stir to incorporate with a non-metal spoon. Cover with cheesecloth or a light dishtowel. Let sit on countertop for 36 hours, stirring every 12 hours. Once time has elapsed, refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Add vanilla, if desired, and top with fruit and nuts. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up two two days.

Cauli-Mash and Blender GravyI love finding easy ways to make comfort foods more nutritious. Potatoes and cream based gravy are subbed out in mere minutes for steamed cauliflower with nut and broth based gravy. Secret flavor boost is the vegetarian, no-chicken broth! It’s great stuff. That, plus added protein, makes this one dish you can feel good about serving to your family and friends any day of the year! Enjoy!Cauli-Mash6 cups steamed cauliflower florettes1 tablespoon coconut oil (like @anthonygoods)1/4 cup vegetarian no-chicken broth, low sodium (like @imaginefood_)1/2 cup nutritional yeast1/4 cup plain pea-based protein powder (like @Nuzest_usa Just Natural Clean Lean Protein)1 clove garlic, mincedSalt and pepper to tasteAdd all ingredients to a food processor and process until smooth.

Crunchy Pumpkin B’Nice CreamSo…I have missed ice cream cones. Store bought gluten-free cones still contain too much sugar for my liking…so, I had resigned myself to be content in my “cone-less” state. One day, however, I was looking in my pantry, and I spied some thin organic rice cakes. These got me thinking. What would it be like to pile banana ice cream on top of one of the squares?? (if you have no idea what banana ice cream or B’Nice cream is, check way back on my feed) So, off I went to make a batch of banana ice cream …and then piled a big scoop on top of the square…and it was JUST LIKE A CONE! Granted, the shape is lost…however the crunch paired with the frozen creamy, dreamy “ice cream” was AMAZINGLY SIMILAR! The rice cakes I have come to love are Lundberg Organic Thin Stackers (@lundbergfarms). The flavor and crunch are perfect and they are firm enough to hold a huge scoop of creamy goodness. In this post, I whipped up some pumpkin B’nice cream by adding 1/2 cup coconut milk, 1/2 cup frozen pumpkin puree, 1/2 cup baked, frozen white sweet potato, 1 and 1/2 frozen banana, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice to a high powered blender (like @vitamix). I stirred in cacao nibs and then I broke the rice cakes into pieces to simulate the cone crunch. Honestly, I prefer just heaping a spoonful of the ice cream on top of a rice cake square, but this was a pretty great mix in too! …for more recipes like this and articles on life, swing by www.stewardchicks.com#ricecake #lundbergfarms #dairyfree #glutenfree #veganfood #healthyeating #cleaneats #wholefoods #thenewhealthy #plantbaseddiet #plantbasedvegan #eatrealfood #healthyrecipes #veganfoodlovers #healthyfoodshare #eatfresh #goodeats #dailyfoodfeed #nuzest_usa #icecream #vitamix #whatveganseat #sugarfree #pumpkin #pumpkinspice #pumpkinrecipes #fallfood #vitamix #dessert #desserts

GF Vegan Apple Walnut SconesWhew…what a week! Apologies for not posting for a few days…had sick kiddos and lecture prep to teach Romans 4 for @bsfsdya. Today, little ones are better and podcast is in the bag. To God be the glory! Jesus always supplies just what I need exactly when I need it…such a joy to serve such a perfect Provider! So, on this fabulous Friday…this a slight adaptation of the pumpkin scones posted earlier on my feed. Swapping out pumpkin for applesauce is a winner…and due to the natural sweetness of the applesauce, less coconut nectar was needed. Win, win!! The combo of the cinnamon, apples, walnuts and raisins smells amazing while baking…and tastes even better….especially when shared with a friend. Enjoy!Ingredients1 cup almonds (*alternatively, almond flour)1 cup GF oats (*alternatively, oat flour)2/3 cup coconut flour (like @anthonysgoods)1 scoop vanilla pea based protein powder (such as @Nuzest_usa Smooth Vanilla Clean Lean Protein)1 teaspoon baking soda1 tablespoon cinnamon1 cup applesauce1 tablespoons coconut nectar1/4 cup almond milk2 tablespoons melted coconut oil1 tablespoon alcohol free vanilla1/2 cup chopped walnuts1/2 cup raisinsMethodPreheat oven to 350 degrees. Place almond and oats in a dry blade container for a high powered blender (like @vitamix). Blend together until a flour consistency is achieved (*alternatively, use almond and oat flour). Add flour to a food processor with remaining ingredients, minus walnuts and raisins. Process until well combined. Add walnuts and raisins. Pulse until well incorporated or stir to combine. Place batter on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cover with another piece of parchment and using a rolling pin, flatten dough into the shape of a circle about 3/4” thick. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cut into even slices. Return to oven for 10 minutes longer. Remove from oven again and separate slices. Bake another 7 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Top with glaze (recipe found on pumpkin scone post) and chopped nuts. Store left overs in refrigerator for up to three days.…for more recipes like this and articles on life, swing by www.stewardchicks.com

Paleo “Pup” DogsPlaying around with @paleoglutenfreeats’s awesome 5 minute fluffy flourless paleo hamburger buns…this time wrapping dough around grilled vegan sausages! Choose any vegan sausage, grill it up, then roll it out to be big enough to wrap sausage. Wrap and bake as directed in original recipe. Using cassava flour (like from @anthonysgoods), makes these buns gluten free and paleo friendly. Recipe is definitely hubby and kid approved! Enjoy! And, thanks again @paleoglutenfreeats!Original recipe found here: https://paleoglutenfree.com/recipes/5-minute-fluffy-flourless-paleo-hamburger-buns/ …for more recipes like this and articles on life, swing by www.stewardchicks.com#glutenfree #vegetarian #healthyeating #cleaneats #wholefoods #thenewhealthy #foodisfuel #eatrealfood #healthyrecipes #healthyfoodshare #goodeats #paleoglutenfreeeats #whatsfordinner#grainfree #getinmybelly #realfood #functionalfood #anthonysgoods #goodmoodfood #eatpretty #glutenfreebread #grainfreebread #flourless #lowcarbbread #yeastfree #yeastfreebread #healthybread #paleo #paleobread #nutfree
