Very Very Welcome Grammy!!!I use organic full fat thats 22 grams of fat. Look out for coconut extract & water. It's out there. Read every label.

I have used the one at walmart ( not organic but wonderful) called Golden Star coconut milk---$1.48 a can--- ingredients, coconut milk, water.

I can't remember the others.

Get the highest fat you can get for chocolate candy and mousse.

Yes Nigel it has to be cream in a can or Asian stores carry cream in cartons. You put in fridge to bring cream to the top.

Esther... I've purchased Cream of Coconut. Is it the same as the cream you get off the top of a can of coconut milk? So I could use the entire package of cream of coconut in a recipe that calls for cream?

Hi Georgene..... You should put that in the fridge also and it will come to the top.Did you read the back? There is still water in there.

If you have high fat and it says " ingredients---- coconut milk and water" then you have it.

Alot of the coconut milks are made with coconut extract and water and they call that coconut milk with chemicals. That is not what you want.

I hope that helps.

Nigel this one is a little different from post # 54 because of the cocoa butter I use.Taste to see if you want it sweeter or less sweet. And I just use the cream out of the cans.


Here is my dairy free chocolate candy recipe using cocoa butter.

Chocolate candy

2 cans full fat coconut milk ( fat content should 10 grams or higher, I use 22 grams fat content)
6 oz. unsweeten chocolate bar form(melted)
1/4 c. powdered Erythritol
3 packages Truvia
12 drops liquid sucralose
1/4 c. warm coconut oil
1/4 c. cocoa butter( netrition has this ,if you don't have it just use double coconut oil)

The day before you are going to make this put the cans of coconut milk in the fridge so that the cream comes up to the top. Spoon out the cream into your food processor. Use what is leftover for a shake.

Make sure your unsweeten chocolate is melted, coconut oil warm (not too warm or the 2 will separate).

Put everything in your food processor , combine really well. Now you can pour into molds.

I put part of it in a round 8" cake pan with plastic wrap on the bottom and pecans in the bottom. After it chilled in the fridge , I cut into bars and wrapped separately and put in freezer. Then I made a bunch of chocolate chips for cookies.

The cocoa butter makes so it does not melt in your hand.This is different from post#54 recipe.

I hope you like it as much as me.

Esther,
Are you a 'volume' eater? I like to snack and I like to feel full. Are you the same way? How do you feel satisfied and keep your carbs low? I feel full when I eat things like nuts or peanut butter but I think there is too many carbs which is keeping me from losing weight.

I'm a snack eater. I eat small amounts 6 times a day. Since you are still in the losing weight element, up that fat. Avocados, hard boil eggs, bacon grease , ghee,
anything with good fats.

It's harder when you can't use dairy, really harder.Peanutbutter is a lugume (bean) I eat alot of almond butter.

Chia seeds are really good for you, I put them in alot of foods.Chia is high in omega-3.

I use it alot for all kinds of foods. Love it. Do you have a mini muffin pan? You can also make muffins with these recipes. Just adjust your carb counts.

Chicken Recipes

I do alot with chicken. You can use chicken breasts or chicken thighs. Whichever you prefer.

I also use alot of nutritional yeast in place of cheese.


Santa fe chicken----chicken and 1 jar of salsa in crockpot cook for about 6 to 8 hours. When done it can be used in tortillas , over green salads with nutritional sprinkled in.

Orange Chicken ----4 pieces of chicken , 1 can of orange soda( orange shasta or Hansens, or diet rite tangerine. No aspartame!)
1 Tablespoon orange zest , put on low for 8 hours.

Cola Chicken---- chicken pieces, 1 c. ketchup ( homemade or stor bought) 1 can of diet cola . This make BBQ chicken

Stuffed chicken----- Chicken breast pounded flat. Now you can fill with what you like. I use onions, different colored bell pepppers sliced, I dry my garden celery leaves and put this in , suatee mushrooms. A couple T. of nutritional yeast.
I change this up with differnt veggies. I also use different spices.I also use crab , veggies to stuff chicken.

I make homemade ranch from Linda Sues website and put this on chicken and bake in the oven.

Chicken strips or chicken nuggets---Use spices that you like. Take 2 eggs for dipping, crush a whole bag of pork rinds for coating, dip in egg then pork rinds ( I put my spices in the pork rind breading and bake.

I also take chicken strips and make chicken stir-fry with soy sauce ( I use coconut amonos). Do you know how to make stir - frys????
I make many different stir fries using different veggies and spices.

I will put more on here.

Any questions?

Oh Esther! You are the QUEEN! :-) Wonderful, wonderful ideas! Thank you, thank you. I get paid next week so I'm making my menu now and will add quite a few of these new recipes. YAY!!!

I did have a question. Where did you find your recipe for coconut tortillas that you use for your fajitas?

I think I'll try the stuffed chicken and the crockpot recipes next. Fun! Thank you for taking the time to type this out!

Tater Tots

1 cup cooked riced cauliflower
1/4 c. nutritional yeast
1/2 c. crushed pork rinds
salt & pepper
1 egg


Oil for frying

Mix everything together except oil. Mold them into little balls. Heat oil for frying and set you the tots in and cooked until all brown and yummy.
these are a great side dish and you can make fried hash browns using this recipe.


Chicken casserole

2 chicken breast or 4 chicken thighs browned on both sides
2 cups of chicken bone broth ( or 2 cups of water & 2 boullion cubes)
1/2 tsp. or more to thicken of glucomannan
1 1/2 cups of your favorite veggies ( onion, mushrooms, rutabagas, celery etc. cut up bite size)

I use chicken breast , brown on both sides and cut up in chunks or thighs brown on both side & leave whole. Put in casserole dish & set aside. Put bone broth in large bowl add gluc to thicken, whisk well, now add veggies and pour over your chicken. You can bake this as is for 45 mins at 350. Or you can add uncooked tater tots on top and bake for about 1 hour at 350 degrees.

I put this over mashed potatoes for DH & salad.

Oh Esther! This sounds so good and would be quick to make. Thank you so much for posting. This could be one of those recipes that you use leftovers for. Do you use your homemade bone broth in place of the bouillon cubes? I've made bone broth before but not sure if I'm doing it right. I just boil the bones but don't know for how many hours? Do you drink broth every day? Just once a day or more than once? And is it helping you?

Thank you, thank you!
