Sweet Potato With Coconut Butter

1 medium to large sweet potato
2 tablespoons Ghee clarified butter
3-4 tablespoons coconut butter (recipe below)
3-4 dashes sea salt
1 packet Stevia

Bake sweet potato for 45-60 minutes at 400 degrees. When cooled, remove skin and place into a skillet. Mash the potato and add the remaining ingredients. Blend well. Heat to medium, stirring occasionally until the Ghee is melted. Allow to cool.

Coconut Butter

8 oz. organic unsweetened coconut flakes
2 tablespoons organic coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 packet Stevia
3-4 dashes of sea salt

Put ingredients in a food processor and allow to process for 5 minutes. Scrape down the sides and allow to process 10 more minutes. Scrape down the sides and allow to process for 10 more minutes. Repeat this process until the coconut looks like moist sugar cookie dough. You may continue the process until the mixture begins to liquify. (If you have a Vitamix, the entire process could take as little as 5 minutes.) Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

~ I started the Paleo diet Sunday and this is one of the first recipes I tried. It is delicious! My child has a bit of an issue with the texture, but it is so nutritious that I was committed to finding a way for her to enjoy it. My solution - mix it in with a baked sweet potato! YUM. ~

GFCFSF Dairy Recipes

I was searching for a GFCFSF cream cheese recipe last night and found this site: Cassidy's Craveable Creations.

Cassidy has recipes for GFCFSF cream cheese, ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, whipped cream, sour cream and much, much more.

This is the page where all of the above recipes are listed.

I hope you are as happy about these recipes as I am! There are so many recipes that I have not been able to prepare because of the presence of soy in grocery store substitutions for these items.

Thank you Cassidy!!
