I threw this together recently while working on limiting my consumption of the holiday related decadent dessert sweet treats. It’s chock full of healthy fat from coconut milk and antioxidants from the sweet spices and fruit. The flavor just hit the spot for me and I keep making it several times per week as a dessert or snack. I use my Ninja blender with the single serve attachment to make it, but you can easily multiply the recipe by however many servings you need.
This recipe has been inspired by another one, so I am giving credit where it is due to Laura Epps’ Paleo in Comparison for my inspiration. I made a few tweaks based on my ingredients and taste preferences. It’s a deliciously moist cake; yum! Here is the original recipe: Coconut Lime Mug Cake.
Not a usual thing for me, but I had this for lunch the other day with some veggies (Carrot sticks and Cauliflower hummus). I was craving carbs and found this recipe, which is compliant with my current sugar detox plan. It includes real food ingredients, feels like decadence, yet isn’t an insane splurge, so it was perfect! (more…)
There are many recipes for Paleo wraps, tortillas, crepes, whatever you want to call them. This week, I made the Wrap recipe from Against All Grain Meals Made Simple. I like these because unlike my own, which I adopted from a Stupid Easy Paleo recipe for Paleo Tortillas they are a little more fluid and easier to spread thinly on your pan. The recipe said a yield of 12 pcs (8 inch wraps), and the best I could do was 11 with 2 of them quite smaller than the others. In any case, I used store bought almond milk and the one I had in the home was the unsweetened vanilla, so these go very well with sweet applications. They are actually ok with what I made them for, which is the Breakfast Burrito recipe from the same book; ok, but definitely a lil off due to the slight hint of vanilla. (more…)
