You can use any type of potato and this salad will turn out fabulous. Here, I used Yukon Gold potatoes because that’s what I had on hand. I like to peel my potatoes, although that’s not necessary if you like the skins on. Sometimes I do a rough peel and leave a bit of skin on; totally up to you.

Boil the potatoes until they are almost tender. Don’t over boil because then the potatoes absorb too much water and become mushy when you go to mix the salad, no matter how gently you do it. Once the potatoes are just this side of tender, remove from the heat, drain well and let cool completely. Sometimes I help this process along by putting the bowl/colander in the fridge until I’m ready to add the other ingredients and mix it together. That said, this salad is also tasty served warm.

Mayo is replaced by full fat sour cream. You can also use plain Greek yogurt, or a mix of the two. I tend to like the full fat sour cream because it has a rich flavor and is creamier than the yogurt. Note: don’t use fat-free sour cream. You need the fat and creaminess to make this really work.

The zest comes in with the Dijon mustard. Here’s my favorite. And I don’t skimp on this! This is totally up to your taste preference, but I always tend to add a dollop more because the potatoes are such a blank canvas that I need that extra dollop to really make these zing!

Hard boiled eggs, celery, a little green onion, dill pickles and Himalayan sea salt round out the flavors. Zesty!

Easy No Mayo Potato Salad Recipe
Author:
Serves: 4-6 servings
Ingredients
  • 5-6 large Russet or Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into medium-small cubes
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup Dijon mustard (more if you like it zesty)
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
  • ⅓ cup chopped green onions
  • ½ cup diced celery
  • ½ cup diced dill pickle
  • 2 tsp Himalayan salt
Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

  2. While water is coming to a boil, peel and chop potatoes into small-medium cubes. Add to boiling water and cook until almost tender. Do not over boil as the potatoes will hold too much water and turn to mush when you go to assemble the salad.

  3. Drain potatoes well and let them cool for a bit before moving forward with the recipe, unless you are serving your salad warm.

  4. Place the potatoes in a large mixing bowl.

  5. Add salt, sour cream and Dijon mustard. Using a large spoon, very lightly mix, taking care not to mush or break the potatoes.

  6. Add most of the hard-boiled eggs, celery, dill pickle and green onions (reserving the rest for garnish on the top) and lightly toss to combine.

  7. Transfer to serving bowl and garnish the top with the remaining ingredients.

  8. Serve warm or chill the salad, covered, in the fridge until ready to serve.

Gluten-Free Cranberry Orange Blender Muffins

I love this recipe, not only because the muffins are delicious and healthy, but because it is so easy to put together. It’s like a one-bowl recipe except you’re using your high-speed blender as the bowl! Plus, super easy cleanup. Who doesn’t love an easy blender recipe?

This recipe calls for sour cream OR plain Greek yogurt. Use which ever you have on hand. Make sure you use the full fat version for both options. The fat-free just doesn’t cut it in this recipe;  you need the extra fat and richness. I use Swerve granulated sweetener as a substitute for refined sugar. Have you tried it yet? I love it. Make sure you’re using a high-powered blender such as a Vitamix or Blendec (I use this one) for the easiest and smoothest blending.

I like to add a drizzle of Swerve confectioners sweetener mixed with a little orange juice to the top of the muffins once they’ve cooled. This is totally optional, but I love that little bit of orange flavor mingled with the tartness of the cranberries. So good!

Here’s a simple video of the process:

Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • Muffin Batter:
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup full-fat sour cream OR full-fat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups almond flour
  • ½ cup Swerve Granulated Sweetener
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • Orange Glaze Drizzle:
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • ½ cup Swerve Confectioners Sweetener
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325° F.

  2. Line a muffin pan with parchment liners.

  3. In the container of a high-powered blender, combine sour cream (or yogurt), eggs, and vanilla extract. Cap it and blend for 30 seconds.

  4. Add the almond flour, sweetener, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Blend again until smooth; about 45 second or so. If the batter is too thick, add a splash of water to thin it out.

  5. I like add my cranberries at the end, by hand, to each muffin cup, so go ahead and fill each muffin cup with batter, divided equally among each cup.

  6. Now add cranberries to each cup, poking some down into the batter and leaving a few exposed on the top.

  7. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until just golden brown.

  8. Remove and let cool completely.

  9. Orange Glaze Drizzle:
  10. Mix the orange juice and Swerve confectioners sweetener. Add more sweetener to taste or for thickness. Drizzle the glaze over the top of each completely cooled muffin.

Healthy Homemade Dairy-Free Eggnog Recipe

Here’s my take on the holiday classic beverage, eggnog. It’s my Healthy Homemade Dairy-Free Eggnog Recipe made with coconut milk, organic ingredients and no refined sugar.

Here's my take on the holiday classic beverage, eggnog. It's my Healthy Homemade Dairy-Free Eggnog Recipe made with coconut milk, organic ingredients and no refined sugar.Note: This post contains Amazon affiliate links.

I’ve always loved eggnog, even as a kid. There’s just something about those holidays flavors that I love. I remember the eggnog of my childhood as being very rich, and really, too sweet. I could sip just a little at a time before I was sugared-out. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I decided to try making my own. I finally hit on a recipe that my adult palate and sugar-free self can confidently recommend, so here is my healthy homemade dairy-free eggnog recipe.

Here's my take on the holiday classic beverage, eggnog. It's my Healthy Homemade Dairy-Free Eggnog Recipe made with coconut milk, organic ingredients and no refined sugar.

I use canned coconut milk as the liquid base. I’ve tried almond milk and a combo of almond and coconut milks, but I think the canned coconut milk gives the best richness and thickness of texture that I’m looking for. I also use organic eggs; their yolks are superior, I think. I’ve tried different sweetener options and I like maple syrup, but have also switched it out with Swerve. I do not like honey as the sweetener – somehow that just messes with the flavor, but that’s just me. I also probably add more spices than other recipes, so I always say adjust it to your taste.


I love that I zoom the contents up in my Vitamix and then warm up the whole thing on the stove. That will take care of any of your (ahem…”my”) concerns about raw eggs! Once the mixture has been nicely heated (never boiled), pour it into a glass container and stash it in the fridge to get nice and cold. Leaving it overnight is best, but if it’s something that you want to drink in the evening, plan accordingly and make this yummy beverage in the morning so it will be well-chilled by the time 5pm comes around.

Oh! And don’t add the alcohol until you’re ready to consume it. I just add a splash of rum or brandy to individual servings…or not, depending on my mood or who the recipient is. This is totally kid-friendly without the refined sugar and booze. Also, this recipe is easily halved if you don’t want to make that much.

Enjoy!
