Top 5 AIP brands to Complement your eat G.A.N.G.S.T.E.R. Goods!
Eating a piece of cake is delicious. Eating that cake with ice cream is even better. Biting into a morning glory muffin for breakfast is delightful. Sipping coffee with it takes up a notch. Savoring a delicious cookie is as close to perfection as you can get. Adding a caramel center to it is next-level stuff. We know our cookies, cakes, and bread are great as they are–but we have found some exciting brands making products that are matches made in heaven with our goods.
Intentionally crafted for those following the AIP, Paleo, Gluten-Free, or Dairy-Free diets, Sweet Apricity offers the sense of joy that’s sorely needed when living with restriction. Sweet Apricity has a beautiful line of marshmallows, caramels, and caramel sauce–that all complement our baked goods in delicious ways.
We have had customers make “S’mores” Brownies, Choconot Mug Cakes, and Caramel thumbprint cookies–all using our mixes as the base and accenting them with Sweet Apricity morsels. They just work!
The Date Lady
The Date Lady is a brand that makes all kinds of syrups, sauces, and sweeteners. And one of their most loved products is Date Syrup. Developed from the founder’s experience living in the UAE, the use of Dates dates back to biblical times and earlier and date syrup is AIP. Dates are high in fiber and rich in antioxidants and have a great taste to them.
And what we find super exciting about The Date Lady brand is that their date syrups are a perfect 1:1 substitute for the Maple Syrup we call for in many of our mixes. Whether you are making our cookies or cakes, try date syrup in there in lieu of the maple syrup and see what you think!
On AIP and other restorative diets, cookies (much less dipped in coffee!) are totally prohibited. But not now! The marriage of our cookies or muffins with a warm, creamy cup of coffee is a total love affair.
Fronen Ice Cream
Fronen ice creams are just plain exciting… for obvious reasons. They have a variety of flavors and specifically, their Banana Coconut and Strawberry flavors are elimination-phase AIP. Their other flavors have ingredients such as Vanilla Extract and Cacao Nibs, which are in the re-introduction phases. The ice cream tastes creamy and ice-creamy without the compromise.
For us, we have enjoyed it as cookie sandwiches (using our Sugar cookie mix), ice cream pies (using our Carob Fudge cookie mix), and any time we want to have cake à la mode (with any of our cake mixes)!
This great brand hosts a line of teas that are just exceptional! They are all AIP compliant and if you are missing the warmth of teas; they are an awesome option. Each tea blend is creatively crafted to support you with your immune system, conquer brain fog, relax and detox. And they pair perfectly with our baked goods!
