Red, White, and Blue Pie THM-S

 This  Red, White, and Blue Pie is just in time for July 4th picnics and cookouts. I was fortunate to get a picture before my family saw it and devoured it. It was a delicious ending to our evening meal of grilled sourdough pizza on this hot, humid, summer day. The filling can also be made as a THM-FP and serves in individual parfait  glasses for a special touch.

Cool completely.

Filling: Soften gelatin in 1/2 cup almond milk. Set aside  for 5 minutes. Blend remaining almond milk with cottage cheese, flavorings, Gentle Sweet, and Sour Cream in blender container until smooth. Heat gelatin/almond milk mixture until syrupy and gelatin is dissolved. Start the blender on low speed. Slowly pour the unflavored gelatin mixture into the blender with the blender is running.

Garnishes: When ready to serve, combine cream, stevia, vanilla, and xanthan gum. Whip until stiff. Garnish pie with whipped cream and berries. Serves 8.

The filling as is listed above is a THM S. It can be served as a THM FP by using fat-free cottage cheese and replacing the Sour Cream with fat-free Greek Yogurt. Serve in individual parfait glasses without the pie crust.

Oat flour is used in the pie crust to give a flaky bite. It is still within the carb limits for a THM S.

Hot humid summer days are here and there’s nothing more refreshing than a cup or two of Iced Cold-Brewed Coffee. I keep cold-brewed coffee concentrate in my fridge all summer long for a quick drink.

Root-beer Float Finger Jello – THM FP or S

If you love the taste of Root-beer Floats you’ll love this finger jello. Best of all it is sugar-free, gluten free, and can be dairy-free as a THM FP. There is also an option for THM S with cream. Rootbeer Float Finger Jello

Root beer part:

White Part:

  • 1 cup cream for THM S OR 1 cup almond milk for THM FP
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoon THM Gentle Sweet

Root beer part: Soften gelatin in 1 cup water for 5 minutes.  Bring remaining water to a boil, remove from heat and whisk in soften gelatin. Stir until it is all dissolved. Add extract and sweetener. Pour into a 9-inch square pan. Chill until set. White part: Soften gelatin in 1/2 cup cream (THM S) OR almond milk (THM FP) for 5 minutes. Heat remaining almond milk (THM FP) OR cream (THM S)until almost a boil. Whisk in gelatin until dissolved. Add vanilla and Gentle Sweet. Pour over root beer mixture and chill. Cut into 20 pieces.

*some extracts are stronger, you may want to add less and taste before adding the entire amount.

Using all cream will be a THM S. Using all almond milk will be a THM FP. I will sometimes use 1/2 cup cream and 1/2 cup almond milk to still have a creamy taste but with a reduced calorie load. You can still eat 3 pieces and be under 5 grams of fat.

Garlic Grilled Chicken THM-S

Warm spring days are here and along with that comes the thought of picnics and grilling. We have a Meadow Creek Charcoal Grill that we love to use for grilling. It has a double rack that we put chicken and sausage in between and all you have to do is flip the rack every 20-30 minutes. Add a large garden salad and you have a meal fit for a king. This recipe can also be made on a gas grill if that is your preference. Garlic Chicken
