Here are some of the most popular and healthy Palm Fruit combinations.
Remember, you can always drop the Palm Fruit powder right down the hatch, but if you don’t love the experience, then try some of these suggestions –
Yogurt: Vanilla coconut yogurt tastes great with palm fruit. (Dustin’s favorite)
Applesauce: Try the applesauce with cinnamon. It’s my mother’s favorite.
Oatmeal / Hot cereal: Choose a high fiber option here, such as chia or flax based cereals.
Pudding: Try an almond milk pudding to avoid the dairy sugars (i.e., lactose).
Fruit juice: Go with organic and/or fresh squeezed juice if possible. Pomegranate is one of the best fruit juice choices due to its high punicalagin content which helps prevent the blood sugar spike. To avoid the sugar altogether, try ginger & lemon juice sweetened with stevia. Sneaky Pete’s makes a good low sugar/high fiber juice. Kombucha and coconut juice are also good low sugar options.
Vegetable Juice: Again, go for organic and/or fresh squeezed. Try using ingredients with lower sugar such as aloe vera juice, cucumber, wheatgrass, ginger, etc.
Smoothie: Blueberries are great in smoothies. They have high chlorogenic acid content which helps prevent the high blood sugar spike. Here is my personal smoothie recipe: vanilla protein (casein) + whole orange + coconut milk + liquid stevia + Palm Fruit — all mixed in my faithful Vitamix.
Coffee / Tea: Hot beverages actually work best for dissolving Palm Fruit, so if the clumping bothers you, this might be your best choice. Hibiscus tea sweetened with stevia is a great sugar free choice.
Milk: If using milk, I recommend Trader Joe’s unsweetened coconut or almond milk — both dairy / lactose free.
NOTE: Hot beverages dissolve the Palm Fruit best. If mixing with a cold beverage, try mixing it with a shaker cup. The BlenderBottle Sportmixer is great for this.
