26 Delightful AIP Drinks Recipes

Louise Hendon | July 24

There’s something a lot of us never think about before we start AIP (paleo autoimmune protocol).

You see, we’re all too caught up with working out which foods are good/bad and which meals we’re going to make…

…and we forget about the other important part of our diet.

None of us only drink water, right?

We all enjoy smoothies, juices, coffee, mocktails, cocktails…

And being on the autoimmune diet doesn’t mean giving these things up.

Blueberry Coconut Yogurt Smoothie, Cardio Green Juice and Pineapple Smoothie are all tasty AIP-compliant drinks filled with nutrients – try adding them to your breakfast or as a post-workout energy booster.

If you fancy something fizzy for later in the day, we’ve found recipes for a Berry Fizz Mocktail, Strawberry, Honey & Lime Spritzer, and Homemade Cranberry Juice.

Not forgetting our AIP coffee recipe, of course!

Paleo Egg Frittata Muffins Recipe [Keto, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | July 12

One of the problems I have at restaurants when I order omelets or frittatas is that they always contain dairy.

Sometimes in the form of cheese but often also in the form of milk or cream that they add to the egg mixture.

This of course makes it really tough to stay Paleo and dairy-free even at breakfast time!

But you can enjoy delicious breakfasts on a Paleo diet…

Make Paleo egg frittata muffins

These homemade Paleo egg frittata muffins are not only easy to make but can be made as a large batch. Sometimes, these muffins are also simply called Paleo egg muffins.

That way you can spend a few hours one day cooking several batches of these. And end up with ultra-healthy protein-filled Paleo breakfasts for an entire month!

For variety, you can also switch up some of the vegetables to create your own unique Paleo egg frittata muffins recipe.

Coconut-Free AIP Desserts: 18 Autoimmune-Friendly Recipes (+ Downloadable List)

Louise Hendon | July 5

It can be hard finding coconut-free AIP dessert recipes! (AIP is a diet that helps many people with autoimmune conditions.)

You’re already cutting out gluten, dairy, nut flours, eggs, nut butters…

So if you happen to be bored or allergic to coconut as well, then it can seem like there’s really nothing you can eat when it comes to desserts!

Coconut Ingredients and Their Substitutions

Just think of all the coconut ingredients you typically see in AIP dessert recipes:

  • Coconut cream,
  • Coconut milk,
  • Coconut shreds or flakes,
  • Coconut oil,
  • Coconut butter, and even
  • Coconut water!

What can you use instead of coconut?

Unfortunately, there are no great substitutions when you’re staying AIP, but here are some general ideas. (If you’re not AIP, then we have a post on general coconut substitutions here.)

  • Coconut flour – Use Tapioca, Cassava, or Tigernut flour
  • Coconut shreds or flakes – Use dried fruits
  • Coconut butter – no good substitution available
  • Coconut oil – olive oil, avocado oil
  • Coconut milk – no good substitution available
  • Coconut cream – frozen bananas, mangos, and pineapples blended or mashed avocados

Making AIP easier for you…

So this list of dessert recipes is for those of you who want to stay coconut-free while on an AIP (Paleo autoimmune protocol) diet. If you’re looking for other AIP dessert recipes, then check out our bigger list here.

As always, remember to check the ingredients list for each recipe to make sure they don’t contain anything you’re sensitive to. Although they all fit the AIP guidelines and won’t break your diet, you’re the best judge of what makes your autoimmune symptoms flare up.

Enjoy these coconut-free dessert recipes even if you’re not on AIP

Whether you’re Paleo or just gluten/dairy-free, these treats are the perfect healthy indulgences. And if you’ve got an allergy to coconut (or you’re just plain sick of the taste) but still want to enjoy a sweet treat, this is a great list of solutions.

18 Healing Paleo Turmeric Recipes – Get More Curcumin Into Your Diet

Louise Hendon | June 9

The first time I truly came across turmeric was in India.

I learnt that it was a key ingredient in curry powder. In fact, it’s the turmeric powder that makes curries so bright yellow in color.

But what’s amazing about turmeric is that it’s not only used to make your Paleo food taste good, it also has medicinal purposes.

Health Benefits of Turmeric

The benefits of turmeric come mostly from one compound it in…curcumin (a type of curcuminoid).

Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant and also has great anti-inflammatory effects. So it’s not surprising that it’s good for you to get more of it into your Paleo diet. One of way doing that is to make some of the Paleo turmeric recipes we have below.

But before I get to those Paleo turmeric recipes…

Let me quickly run through why turmeric (and in particular curcumin) is so healthy for you. Scientific studies suggest that:

But what exactly is turmeric…

What is Turmeric?

You probably know turmeric as a yellow powder that comes in a spice bottle. But this healing Paleo spice is actually a root (similar to ginger).

Take a look at the photos below – there’s the turmeric powder I have in my pantry and the fresh turmeric root it comes from.

what is turmeric

In some supermarkets and Asian markets, you can buy fresh turmeric root and use that instead of the dried powder to flavor dishes. I love using the fresh root to make turmeric tea (you can get my recipe for that below).

How to get more turmeric into your Paleo diet?

As I explained above, curcumin is one of the great compounds in turmeric, but only around 3% of turmeric powder is curcumin. This means that you need to eat a lot of turmeric to start experiencing all the benefits.

So there are 2 ways you can get more turmeric into your Paleo diet:

  1. >Enjoying more Paleo turmeric recipes. That’s why we put together this list of healing Paleo turmeric recipes, so you can start enjoying more turmeric in your daily dishes.
  2. Add a turmeric supplement to your daily routine. You can boost your turmeric intake even more and make sure you’re able to absorb the curcumin into your body (because otherwise you wouldn’t get all the benefits) by adding this turmeric supplement into your daily routine. And eat a few peppercorns when you’re taking the curcumin supplement to increase its bioavailability.

Paleo Turmeric Recipes

We’ve put together a ton of healing Paleo turmeric recipes for you to try. From teas to curries, you’ll find lots of uses for your turmeric powder and for your fresh turmeric roots.
