THRIVE Tips

Half White/Half Wheat

To add an extra boost of nutrition to your white breads, add half whole wheat flour to your recipes.  This will add a delicious flavor and it is a great way to utilize your whole wheat.  The half white/half wheat ratio can be used in almost any situation whether you aremaking breads, desserts, or thickening a stew.  Keep in mind that whole wheat flour is heavier and may need more leavening such as slightly increasing the yeast in a recipe or increasing the baking powder by 1/2 teaspoon for every 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour used.

 

Baby Food

Your THRIVE freeze-dried fruits and vegetables can be used to make delicious homemade baby food that is free from harmful preservatives.  Simple rehydrate  the product as directed on the can, adding any desired flavors, and puree in a blender or food processor.  Freeze pureed fruits and vegetables in ice cube trays for serving sizes and store in freezer bags until ready to use.

 

Adding a Fresh Touch

As you develop a system to integrate THRIVE products into your daily meals, try mixing it with fresh ingredients.  This is a great way to experiment with THRIVE in recipes that your family already loves.  THRIVE powdered milk and eggs are a great place to start.  Freeze-dried berries are another group of ingredients that you can easily toss into cereal or bake into desserts.  With so many great tasting and easy-to-use ingredients, the possibilities are endless.

 

Butter Powder

THRIVE Butter Powder is best used as a spreadable butter for topping toast, fresh breads, or even making your own honey butter.  You can also utilize it anytime you want to add butter flavor to a dish like a casserole, sauce, or gravy. If you choose to use your butter powder in baking, mix the powder with the dry ingredients before baking.  Result vary with baking.

To rehydrate THRIVE Butter Powder, combine 1/2 cup powder + 1/4 cup water.
