PINON NUTS (INDIAN NUTS)
Pinon nuts are very hard to find, and Nuts.com is thrilled to share them with you! They are similar to pignolia nuts, but are roasted to perfection in the shell. One taste and you will realize what the fuss for these pinon nuts is all about! Also known as Indian nuts, these are roasted right in-house so they arrive to you at their freshest.

Enjoy Pinon Nuts

PINON NUTS (INDIAN NUTS)

To crack pinon nuts, we recommend spreading them out on a small towel, and then using a rolling pin to go over the nuts, breaking open their shells. Our roasted pinon nuts are a perfect treat for snacking or using in your recipes. Try them tossed in salads or prepared with vegetables like cauliflower or asparagus. They complement chicken and fish dishes well, too. Pinon nuts add a great nutty crunch to rice, risotto, or pasta dishes, and are wonderful for preparing a pesto sauce. They are also delicious in cookies and other sweet treats.

Health Benefits of Pinon Nuts
A single serving of pinon nuts provides a rich source of nutrients that can improve heart health, boost energy levels and promote weight loss. Enjoying pinon nuts as a snack also does wonders for your immune system and vision. Pinon nuts are a good source of monounsaturated fats which are associated with lowering LDL “bad” cholesterol levels and reducing the risk for heart disease. They are also rich in minerals such as iron and magnesium that help transport oxygen and energize the body. A rare source of pinoleic acid, pinon nuts promote a feeling of fullness that has proven effective in weight management. Vitamin A and lutein support good vision by protecting the retina and preventing cataracts. Pinon nuts are also plentiful in antioxidants and vitamin C to improve the body’s natural defense system against colds and illnesses.

About Pinon Nuts
The name pinon is derived from the Spanish term for pine nut. Pinon nuts are produced by the main species of pine tree in the United States. Pinon nut trees (Pinus edulis) grow wild in the southwestern United States and are much more rare than pine nuts from Europe or Asia. A good crop of pinon is only produced once every three to seven years so they are far less abundant than other varieties of pine nuts. Pinon nuts tend to be larger than regular pine nuts and have a signature smooth and sweet buttery taste. Pinon nuts are sometimes referred to as pinyon nuts or pinion nuts.

Ingredients
Pinon Nuts Packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, and milk products.

Best Healthy Snack Recipes for the Super Bowl
Turn on the game and dig into our healthy appetizer recipes for the Super Bowl! These Super Bowl snacks, including chicken tender recipes, dip recipes, buffalo wing recipes and more healthy snack recipes, are lighter version of traditional snacks your friends and family will enjoy.

Onion Rings
We couldn’t get enough of these crunchy onion rings in the EatingWell Test Kitchen. Try any seasoning blend that you have on hand to add flavor to the breading or substitute 1 teaspoon salt instead. Seasoned whole-wheat breadcrumbs are available in some supermarkets and natural-foods stores. If you can find them, try them in place of the plain breadcrumbs and seasoning blend……..

Boneless Buffalo Wings
Even though boneless Buffalo wings are made with healthy white-meat chicken, they’re usually deep-fried and drenched in hot sauce laced with butter. The solution: chicken tenders are dredged in seasoned whole-wheat flour and cornmeal, pan-fried in only a small amount of oil and then drizzled with a tangy hot pepper sauce. With a fraction of the fat, calories and sodium, these boneless wings are reason enough to throw a party…….

Baked Coconut Shrimp with Tangelo Salsa
A sweet-and-sour tangelo salsa complements the toasty coconut crust on these sassy little coconut shrimp. Serve these healthy baked coconut shrimp as a plated first course with the tangelo salsa or as a passed hors d’oeuvre. Be sure to use unsweetened shredded coconut or this baked coconut shrimp recipe will be too sweet–look for it near other baking supplies or in bulk at natural-foods stores or well-stocked supermarkets…………….

It’s Nuts I tell you……..BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE TRUFFLES

December 28, 2017 at 6:27 AM | Posted in nuts, NUTS COM | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

This week from nuts.com website (https://nuts.com/) we have a recipe for BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE TRUFFLES. The recipe is made with a lot of the ingridients which can be purchased at the Nuts website (https://nuts.com/). Ingredients include; coconut milk, cacao butter, maple syrup or honey, and blueberry powder to name a few. So check out the Nuts website for recipes and all the healthy and delicious items they carry. You can choose from items; GIFTS, NUTS, DRIED FRUIT, CHOCOLATES and SWEETS, SNACKS, COFFEE and TEA, COOKING and BAKING, and more!. Plus there’s FREE shipping on orders over $59, see for details. On to the recipe for the BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE TRUFFLES. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018.

BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE TRUFFLES

This blueberry cheesecake truffles recipe was developed exclusively for Nuts.com and our customers by the talented Anya Kassoff and Masha Davydova. This mother daughter team share their ideas about tasty and nourishing cooking on their website, Golubka Kitchen.
These blueberry cheesecake truffles are as decadent as they get, as well as vegan and made entirely of whole foods that are as good for you as they are delicious. Cashews, cacao and coconut butters yield their richness to these truffles and create a heavenly, buttery texture, while being amazing sources of healthy fat.
The blueberry powder that colors these treats a stunning purple is a great option for satisfying an out-of-season blueberry craving. It’s made of freeze-dried blueberries and retains many of the antioxidants and vitamins found in fresh blueberries, and tastes delicious to boot.
These truffles are sweetened with your choice of maple syrup or honey and get their characteristic, tart cheesecake flavor from the addition of fresh lemon juice and zest – all ingredients that we can stand behind for this indulgent yet wholesome treat.

Blueberry Cheesecake Truffles

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Yield: 30 truffles

Blueberry Cheesecake Truffles
Ingredients

fat from one 13.5 oz can full fat coconut milk (see note)
1 1/2 cups (about 120 g) organic raw cacao butter – shredded or chopped
1 cup coconut butter/manna
1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
1/2 cup raw cashews – soaked in purified water for 4 hours
juice from 3 organic lemons
zest from 1 organic lemon
pinch sea salt
3 tablespoons blueberry powder – divided
desiccated coconut – for coating

Instructions

1 – Combine the coconut fat, cacao butter and coconut butter in a medium saucepan. Gently melt over very low heat, whisking until all the butters are incorporated into an even mixture. Add in the maple syrup or honey and whisk to combine until smooth.
2 – Drain and rinse the cashews and combine them with the lemon juice in an upright blender until smooth. Add the zest and salt and pulse to incorporate.
3 – Whisk the cashew mixture into the melted butters until fully combined. Evenly distribute the mixture between two medium bowls. Add 1 tablespoon of blueberry powder to one of the bowls and whisk to combine. Cover both bowls and place into the refrigerator until the mixtures are set, but still scoopable, about 1-2 hours.
4 – Prepare a large, parchment paper-covered tray or cutting board, along with two small bowls filled with the remaining 2 tablespoons of blueberry powder and desiccated coconut. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of the truffle mixture at a time, rolling it into a ball between the palms of your hands. Roll each truffle in the desiccated coconut or blueberry powder (I rolled the white truffles in blueberry powder and the purple ones in desiccated coconut) and place onto the prepared tray. Keep refrigerated for up to 5 days.
Notes

To get the fat to separate from the water in a can of full-fat coconut milk, place the jar into the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. All the fat should accumulate and harden at the top of the can.
