Coconut Milk Yogurt

Coconut Milk Yogurt



2  cans full-fat coconut milk (Market Value or Thai Kitchen)
*
¼ C water
2 tsp gelatin powder (Great Lakes brand red can is healthier than Knox)
1-1/2 TBL honey
1 scoop pea protein powder
1 capsule probiotics (approx 1/4 tsp)
pinch of sea salt (I think)
Optional: ½ tsp turmeric powder or ¼ tsp cardamom powder
5 half-pint glass canning jars with lids

  1. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, bring coconut milk to at least 110ºF. While it is warming on the stove, pour water into a wide rimmed shallow bowl and sprinkle gelatin over the water. Set aside so gelatin can bloom.
  2. Remove pan from the stove. To the coconut milk add honey, softened gelatin and pea protein powder (and spices if using). Test temperature to make sure it is lukewarm (110º), then open capsule of probiotics and sprinkle into the mixture.
  3. Using an immersion blender, blend well.
  4. Pour into the small canning jars, using metal funnel, and cap with lids. 
  5. Set a heating pad in a draft free place on a counter and set to lowest setting. Place jars on the heating pad and cover with a thick wool sweater, or felted cozy.
  6. Leave alone until it’s done, at least 12 hours. Then, tighten lids again (they will have loosened a bit). Shake each jar. Refrigerate for several hours to thicken.

How to Freeze Avocados to Use in Smoothies

How to Freeze Avocados to Use in Smoothies
We add an avocado to our daily smoothies, but it's nearly impossible to have a "just right" ripe avocado every day since they go bad quickly. Sometimes we only needed half an avocado. Here's a simple way: a smooth purée. For every avocado you need 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and it keeps its bright green color if you purée it rather than mash it like you would for guacamole. Each avocado = 3/4 cup purée (12 tablespoons). Sometimes I will make a big batch, like 18 avocados, so I need over 1 cup lemon juice for that quantity of purée (4 tablespoons = 1/4 cup). Now it's easy to have that daily avocado!

6 avocados, ripe
6 TBL lemon juice, fresh-squeezed
6 sandwich-sized zip-loc plastic bags 
1 ice-cream scoop that measures 1/4-cup servings
1 large tray
Wash avocados. Make a cut around each avocado starting at the stem end, and cut all the way around. Twist to separate. The pit will stay in one half. You can easily remove the pit …

Easter Babies (Croatian Easter Bread Dolls)

Easter Babies
                                                    ******* Makes 12 Easter Babies
These Easter Babies (Croatian Easter bread dolls a.k.a.primorski uskrsne bebeare a new tradition in our family. The egg dying, dough mixing and braiding is so fun for children and grownups—it’s contagious. Traditionally, they are made with red-dyed eggs, but we use the colors we already have dyed. They make sweet gifts and they also look charming laying next to each Easter dinner plate. This lady uses naturally dyed eggs for her Easter babies.
If you're already making challa bread, use extra challa dough for these babies (simply make enough dough for 2 loaves, only bake one challa, and use the remaining dough for the Easter Babies).
