Homemade Gummie Vitamins

Wish I could take credit for this awesome recipe, but it is totally from Wellness Mama. My advice on this one is to use grape/blueberry juice or something like that. This is stolen from Katie’s site. Really – just go there for the recipe – and then read the rest of her blog. I added it to my blog for easy reference for me later. šŸ˜‰

Ingredients
  • 8 teaspoons gelatin powder (basically 3 packets)
  • Ā½ cup organic fresh juice. Don’t use pineapple
  • 2 tablespoons of honey (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons of vitamin C powder OR magnesium powder OR probioticsĀ 
Instructions
  1. In a small sauce pan over low heat, mix the juice, gelatin and honey and whisk to incorporate.
  2. Heat slightly until gelatin is completely dissolved- it will be thick and somewhat syrup-like.
  3. Remove from heat and whisk in vitamins, if using.
  4. Very quickly pour into molds or even a small glass dish (oil with coconut oil) and put in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden.
  5. Remove and pop out of molds. Cut into squares if needed.
  6. Serve.

Grain-free, dairy-free Almond Pumpkin Cake w/Avocado Chocolate Frosting

I’ve been craving cake for a while, and under the pretence of my daughter’s upcoming birthday, I thought I’d try out a recipe. This one seems to work well. Obviously the whip cream is not dairy-free.

Cake

I took the grain-free pancake recipeĀ andĀ doubled it.

* pinch of baking soda
* pinch of salt
* 2 tsp cinnamon
* 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
* 1 cup almond flour

* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
* 2 tbsp honey
* 4 eggs

Mix the dry. Mix the wet. Mix them together and pour into anĀ 8×8 cake pan lined with parchment. Put it in a 350 degree oven for about 20 – 30 minutes (I wasn’t paying attention – just watch it).

Icing

1 ripe avocado
3 tbsp of raw honey
2 tbsp cocoa powder
pince of salt
2 tsp vanilla

Mix it all together in a food processor and ice that cake. Yum!
