The Juicerless Christmas Recipe Collection

Season's Greetings- Merry Christmas!

Here are your three Juicerless recipes for this festive season.  I hope you find one that really clicks for you and your family!

And here are the goodies you can make with little more than a Nut Mylk Bag and a blender (and the ingredients of course):

Sparkling Cranberry-Apple Juice
This is the quintessential Christmas juice 'cocktail'-- because of its red colour probably, and also because it has a zing and children like it.  Often it is the sugar-laden commercial sort that gets chosen.  This is the healthy, tangy version with no added sugar (the apple really does look after that).  For each glass of this juice blend together 3 juicy apples, and about a 1/2 C. of fresh or thawed cranberries.  You can add a couple of ice cubes if you wish (before or after the juicing).  A little stevia is okay if you definitely want it sweeter (about a 1/16 of a teaspoon or less goes a long way).  Blend and "Milk" with your Nut Mylk Bag.  Leftover apple-cranberry pulp can be refrigerated and later used as a weak tea that is quite comforting.  (Juice plain cranberries with a little water for a bladder soother).
Nut Nog
Very delicious and a lovely alternative to the overly-sweet and thick commercial dairy eggnog. Make your own nut mylk (any variety will do-- the recipe I have chosen uses Almonds and Brasil Nuts but you could go with any combinations, such as hazelnut and brasil nut, almond and coconut, etc.

Freshly cracked nuts are the healthiest.  Please go here to find the entire recipe. Enjoy it!

We like the ripe, ripe banana mixed in, but you might not like bananas, in which case you could try baby coconut or mango, or such.  The idea is to create something so luscious and scrumptuous that you will want to drink it well into the New Year (there is nothing to say you can't).
Almond (Pulp)Shortbread
And now for the pièce de résistance!  

Here is a recipe for absolutely mouth-watering shortbread-- made with the pulp from making your almond milk!  It could well be from other nuts as well, although I must tell you that almonds make wonderful flour (dry the pulp in a dehydrator if you have one, in the oven if you don't) and grind up when cool).  This particular flour makes a great Gluten-Free flour.  The cookies will taste so almond-y (is that a word?).  

The recipe is from Sara Webster on Pinterest.  She is a little vague in the recipe, stating that she got it from a GF Sugar Cookie recipe by Detoxinista.  Based on the sugar cookie recipe and what Sara divulged about her recipe, I put together the following almond and rice flour shortbread cookie recipe. 

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and get out your stick-free pans or pans spread with a silicon sheet or parchment paper sheet.  

Ingredients are:
  •  1/4 tsp. of Baking Soda,
  • 1 C. Almond Flour (after the pulp is dried and ground in a coffee bean grinder), and 1/2 C. of Rice Flour 
  • sprinkle of salt
  • 1/4 - 1/2C. of melted Coconut Oil (or real butter)
  • 4 T. Coconut Palm Sugar and 1/4 tsp. Stevia powder, whisked together (or other sweetener)
  • 1/2 tsp. Almond Extract (or Vanilla).  
Mixing in a Food Processor works well, or you can do it by hand. 
Put on a stick free pan or on silicon or parchment and bake for about 15-20 minutes.
Carefully remove and cool on a rack. 

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
