Coconut Oil “the healthiest oil on the earth.”
I’m totally obsessed with coconuts and I’m lucky enough to be able to tolerate them on the low Fodmap diet yay!
My family even call me a coconut oil/water pusher, as I want everyone to learn the many benefits of coconuts.
Here are some of the things I use coconut oil for:
Eating Aim to take up to 3-4 Tablespoons a day
My daughter’s eczema
Oil Pulling haven’t got around to doing yet a little busy in the morning at my place
and I even use it to brush my teeth.

There are many things you can make with the left over almond pulp from your almond milk.
A favourite in our house is my Blueberry Muffins
Gluten Free Dairy Free Sugar Free Blueberry Muffins
1 cup Almond Meal (sometimes i use half blanched almond meal to add a different texture or if i don’t have enough pulp.)
2 Tbls Chia seeds
½ Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1/8 cup Rice Malt Syrup
1 cup Blueberries frozen work best
Cinnamon to taste
Shredded Coconut to sprinkle on top
Pre heat the oven to 160 °
Line a muffin tray with baking paper
Melt the Coconut Oil
Combine all the ingredients except coconut in a bowl and mix together to make a thick mixture.
Chia seeds soak up to 9 times their weight in liquid so if the mixture becomes too dry just add more coconut oil 🙂
Fold in the Blueberries
Scoop mixture evenly in to muffin tray sprinkle top’s coconut and place in oven
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden

I make almond milk once or twice a week, not only is it a great substitute for cow’s milk or soy milk it tastes great is full of nutrients and contains no cholesterol.
1 cup Almonds
2-3 cups water depending on how you like it.
Cheesecloth Tea towel or a laundry mesh bag
Soak almonds over night in water.
Strain and rinse the almonds with clean water (I keep the water from the soaked almonds and put on my herb garden).
Place the almonds in your blender with the 2-3 cups of water and blend for 1 min
Strain the almond mixture over a jug with a sieve. You could just go straight to the next step I like to do both
I then pour the milk through my laundry mesh bag. I have just finally purchased an almond milk bag and cant wait for its arrival. You could also you pour the whole lot through the mesh bag
Next I put the almond pieces into the mesh bag and squeeze squeeze squeeze. Its amazing how much milk you can get out.
Tip your milk into you milk jar and why not pour a glass for yourself after all your hard work 🙂
Now the best part is to find what to do with the left over almond pulp.
That will be my next Blog
