Cool Vanilla Weight Gain Pudding – Paleo and SCD

Cool Vanilla Weight Gain Pudding – Paleo and SCD

Weight gain is something many kids I meet need to work on. But so often, strategies include allergens or other problematic foods that they can’t have: Milk protein (casein), eggs, ice cream, full fat yogurt, cream, Pediasure (that’s milk protein), cane sugar…. What to do?

Shakes, puddings and liquid boost drinks are a great way to do it. Use this hypoallergenic short cut pudding that is full of protein, healthy fats, and some SCD legal carbs and proteins too. Don’t skip the crushed ice in the bottom of your mixing container, it gives a refreshing coolness to the whole recipe!

Cool and soothing, not to mention a big hit of easy to digest calories that help rather than hurt healthy gut bacteria. This will yield as much as 500 calories per serving (recipe makes two generous servings) depending on the size of avocado you are using.

Bullet Coffee – For Kids? Try This Creamy Almond Version

Bullet Coffee – For Kids? Try This Creamy Almond Version

Have you tried butter in your coffee? Not just any butter – check this recipe for the original, BulletProof grass-fed butter coffee story. It is delicious – and here’s an even better way for your kids to try it too. This is a good hot-day start before school, or an alternative to cocoa. Instead of hooking your kids on sugary, syrupy coffee drinks filled with GMO junk and weird fats, make this one at home. I use organic water-processed decaffeinated coffee, with other ingredients organic too. Kids can enjoy this luxurious treat that gives them protein and healthy fats without sugar  – NOW brand organic stevia drops take the place of sugar.

Ingredients
Servings: 8 ounce servings
Instructions
  1. Make some strong decaf coffee. I happened to use an old Farberware percolator for this - it was on hand in a friend's kitchen when I made this recipe - and it made super delicious, dark coffee - fast!
  2. Pour 12 ounces (1 and 1/2 cups) of the hot coffee into a wide mouth glass that can accommodate an immersion blender. Add the butter and Brain Octane and blend. You can also use a regular blender.
  3. Add the almond butter, almond milk and collagen and blend til creamy. Stevia is optional - most kids enjoy a little sweet touch, and organic stevia drops easily accomplish this without added sugar.
  4. Adjust levels of any of the ingredients to your desired taste - for more dark coffee flavor, more almond flavor, or more sweet. Versatile and easy!
  5. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

I keep these on hand in my kitchen - they work well in so many recipes, and are well tolerated by kids with allergy and sensitivity. Even for kids with coconut sensitivity, Brain Octane is often workable, and is an excellent fuel for brain, gut, and growth. If you can't find these products online, they are always in stock at our office - just call to order.
