A new favorite snack around here is popcorn popped with ghee. It is yummy!
Have you heard of Ghee?
Ghee is a healthful & wholesome fat. Not only is it fun to say & spell, it has a yummy taste too.
What exactly is ghee?
Ghee is made from butter, but the milk solids, water and impurities have been removed, making it an option for those who are lactose or casein intolerant.
A friend suggested we try ghee as a consistent energy source. How does a fat like ghee assist with energy?
Ghee has short & medium chain fatty acids, allowing the body to gain energy during digestion.
But that's not all!
Grass fed/pastured ghee stimulates gastric acid, thus aiding digestion and the building of intestinal bacteria.
Ghee is also rich in vitamins A,D,E & K. All of which are critical to bone, brain, heart and immune support health.
The first time I cooked with ghee it was with popcorn. We love popcorn made in our whirly pop popcorn popper. Usually I add a dollop of olive oil or coconut oil. But when I found out about ghee & that is has a butter-like taste, I thought it would taste scrumptious on popcorn!
It is a super easy way to add a healthier fat to a favorite snack.
In your stove top popcorn popper add in 1-2 Tablespoons of Ghee to 1/2 cup of organic popcorn. Pop away over medium/high heat until all the kernels are popped.
Sprinkle with salt and enjoy the buttery popcorn flavor without the butter!
