Thanks for taking the time to stop by...
I just love seeing you here!
Well, lets see... where to begin.
Okay, so I have been eating dairy free
for a little over a week now
and I think I am also switching
to a Gluten Free diet as well.
I have been having a lot of trouble with my tummy
for quite some time now and I thought
what could I do different to heal my gut.
As I was praying and really pondering
what is causing all this distress
I started to research some things
on what I was experiencing.
And, the first part was to get rid of all dairy.
No brainer there, so I went off it all.
Which was a little hard, because I love cheese.
And then one day I decided to have
some coffee with a freshly baked cookie
and within minutes my tummy was hurting,
and continued to hurt through out the day...
I've been keeping a food diary since
my journey with no dairy
and while I was looking back,
I noticed on the one day
I had eaten several things with gluten in it.
Including the coffee and cookie...
So... to make a long story short,
I have decided to get off gluten for a season to see
if my tummy heals.
I'd love to hear from any of you that have tried or has had
to go gluten and dairy free.
Do you have any recipes you'd like to share?
I think I can handle dinner,
but I still need a sweet treat every now and again.
Thanks so much!
Any who, how would you like to
try a new dairy free fudge recipe?
I was craving something sweet...like chocolate
so I got on my phone and googled dairy free fudge
and I tried this one...
It is so decadent and it melts in your mouth!
And it's chocolate!
Below you will find the recipe...
In my mixer,
I put in the coconut oil and coconut milk.
Blend on medium speed for 5-6 minutes.
Till your mixture is thick and glossy.
Next, add in your cocoa powder, honey
vanilla and almond extract.
Mix your chocolate mixture again, till blended.
Pour your mixture into a wax
paper lined loaf pan.
Place in freezer for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, take out fudge.
Cut fudge into bite size pieces.
At this point, the fudge is still a little soft.
So, I placed my cut pieces into a tin
and put them back into the freezer.
I pulled out another piece after
about 30 more minutes in the freezer
and it was much harder than before.
I think since there is coconut oil in these,
they tend to melt a bit quicker.
So eat and enjoy... One piece at a time!
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
Don't forget to try something new!
