Gluten-Free Blueberry Sourdough Muffins

Blueberry Sourdough Muffins made gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and dairy-free. This delicious muffin recipe uses coconut oil and coconut sugar in place of butter and sugar. Bake up a batch using your sourdough starter!

If you’re rich in sourdough starter and are in hot pursuit of a place for it, these muffins are your ticket to a real good time!

I should know…I ate 4 immediately after shooting them.

Simply irresistible! 

As you know, I follow a gluten-free diet, so I created a gluten-free sourdough starter from scratch. It’s much easier than you may think! As long as your home is nice and warm, naturally occuring bacteria and yeast do all the hard work for you.  

All of this to say –

Fig Beet Blueberry Smoothie

A happy-gut smoothie with figs, beet, blueberry, pineapple, coconut milk yogurt, and almond milk. This easily digestible banana-free smoothie is an awesome breakfast or snack.

Fig Beet Blueberry Smoothie - a lower-sugar banana-free smoothie recipe

Before I discovered my banana intolerance, I drank smoothies every day. Since going banana-free, I go in and out of smoothie kicks depending on the state of my gut health. If I have an IBS flare up, I gravitate toward replacing a meal or two with a smoothie or bone broth, as liquid is much easier on your digestive tract than solid food.

This fig beet blueberry smoothie is one of my recent happy-gut concoctions. It incorporates ingredients that are not only easy on your digestive system, but are welcomed with open arms. I use a fig, a few hunks of beet, blueberries, pineapple, coconut milk yogurt (probiotics), almond milk, ground cinnamon, raw pumpkin seeds (a natural anti-parasitic!) and some collagen peptides (awesome for repairing damaged gut lining!).

The Ultimate Açaí Bowl

The Ultimate Acai Bowl - a delicious and nutrient-dense breakfast | #paleo #vegan #healthy

If you’re maladjusted to heat like me and are jonesing for ALLTHECOLDFOODS, I have a chilly breakfast to whet your whistle. It is basically the mother of all açaí bowls…fully-loaded, packed with nutrients, easily customizable, sexy as can be.

We’re no stranger to the açaí bowl here on The Roasted Root..I posted my Apple Walnut Acai Bowls, Kiwi Strawberry Acai Bowls and finally, my Chocolate Banana Acai Bowls umpteen years ago, and it’s been quite a while since we’ve re-visited the subject.

New to the concept of the açaí bowl? I’ll give you the quick run-down. Açaí berries come from Brazil and are full of antioxidants, omega fatty acids, B vitamins, vitamin K and fiber. Açaí bowls are thick smoothie bowls made with frozen açaí berries, are topped with all sorts of goodies and served at various cafes nationwide. BUT great news! You can make them at home easy as 1-2-3.
