Sweet Dip

When I roast my sweet potatoes for my Sweet Veg Crackers, I roast extra so I can make this easy sweet dip. All you gotta do is look in the fridge or cupboard and see how you can spice it up. I love it with fresh garlic and loading it up with herb’s and spices.

Sweet potatoes roasted and mashed or pureed

Garlic fresh or dried

Fresh herbs ( my favorite is parsley )

Spices

Maple Water Gellow with Fruit

Gelatin is good for joints, gut, hair, nails, skin, sleep and brain function! I have mild osteoarthritis in my knees and I snowboard a lot so I need to keep my knees in good shape.
Maple water Gellow goes with any fruit you want. I used diced pears and blueberries. The nice thing about Gellow is that you can experiment with so many juice flavours and fruit! Have fun following your cravings!
Maple water Gellow with fruit
1 Tbsp Gelatin
1/4 cup Maple Syrup or less
1 3/4 cups Maple Water
1 cup of fruit
Shredded Coconut optional
Coconut Whip cream optional
In a pot bring half the maple water and syrup to a boil. Pour hot maple water in the 8×6 pan and sprinkle gelatin over and whisk 2 minutes. Pour in the rest of maple water. Add your choice of fruit and bang on counter to release bubbles. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Serve in bowl’s and add shredded coconut or coconut whip cream. Enjoy!

Grocery store gelatin has less health benefits, I get mine from the health food store.

Vegan substation for gelatin is Agar
For some fun pour on parchment lined baking sheet and use cookie cutters to shape.
Silicone molds is a good option too.Fruit Gellow kabobs the sky’s the limit!
Expired gelatin can be used as a hair treatment.

I hope you get outside this winter and have some fun!
