I wanted needed to make a dessert that could help me keep my sanity while Doing the Daniel Fast. Something slightly sweet, all fruit with no sugar added. I think I’ve come up with a good one. Here’s a 2 ingredient Pina Colada Sorbet recipe that I made in my Nutri Bullet. Just freeze some diced pineapple and blend it in the Nutri Bullet with 1/2 a cup of sugar free, pure coconut water with pulp. (adjust the amounts to fill at or below the fill line on your Nutri Bullet or blender) Pour into a container and freeze for about an hour or two, remove from the freezer before its frozen solid. Scoop and serve…..that’s It!
This is as easy as it looks. used;
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks (cut up some fresh pineapple)
1/2 cup coconut juice, no sugar or additives
Blend, Freeze (not solid) until scoopable….that’s it!
I’m a meat lover, that’s no secret, but once in a while the time comes to lighten up. Well, for me that time has come, so I’m starting the Daniel fast to help get me on track. This recipe for Sweet Potato Steaks with roasted vegetables really filled the bill. The fennel turns candy sweet when roasting; it’s absolutely incredible.
Sweet Potato Steaks with Roasted Vegetables
2 yellow squash
1 red bell pepper
4 Roma tomatoes
1 fennel bulb
2 cloves of garlic
3 sprigs of fresh thyme
¼ cup olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Chop all vegetables and place in a roasting pan that is about 2 inches deep.
Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with fresh thyme, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly and roast at 400° for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Sautéed cabbage doesn’t need to be boring. Caramelized onions add a deep sweetness and cooking the carrots until slightly charred concentrates the flavor. The apples add a tart fruity-ness that make this a fun family dish.
Sautéed cabbage with carrots and apples serves 4-6 people
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small cabbage
1 apple ( I used a Fuji apple)
½ cup water, chicken broth or apple juice.
Ground ginger (optional)
Slice the onions, carrot and cabbage.
Heat the oil in a large skillet. Cook the onion over medium heat until it’s caramelized. Add carrots and cook until they are tender and a little bit brown. Add sliced cabbage and water (or broth, or apple juice) to the pan and stir. Cover and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat until everything is tender and liquid has cooked out. Slice the apple. Push the contents of the pan to one side; add the apple to the empty side and sauté until golden. Add salt and ginger (if using) and serve.
