It is time for another installment of What Would You Do with my girl Aubrey, also known as the only time I ever blog any more.
So of course, I have SEVERAL recipes I want to share with you today.
1/3 c lemon juice
1/4 c sugar (you can do 3 T if you like it less sweet)
1/4 c water
much ice as it takes to get thick. . . like 4-5 cubes? It just depends
of the size of your ice. You can always add more if its too liquid.
Second, low calorie strawberry shortcake. I made this recipe soon after Olivia was born and I was working to lose some baby weight. I have found that I lose the most weight when I avoid all processed foods regardless of calories. But if you like to count calories or maybe induldge in a processed food treat on occasion, here is a recipe for you ;)
Cupcake: (I broke down a cake
mix into a smaller portion, because you KNOW what happens if you have
extra cake lying around the house. . . and you're hungry. . . )
1 c Betty Crocker white cake mix (put the remainder of the cake mix in a Ziploc bag and back into the box)
1 egg white
2 T sugar free applesauce
1/3 c + 1 T water
all ingredients, beat on medium speed for 1 1/2 minutes. Spoon into 8
cupcake liners. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. I let them cool,
kept two for our dessert and put the rest in the freezer for another
day. Because of the applesauce, these cupcakes will go bad faster than
regular. I guess I could have made an even SMALLER batch, but I just
didn't want to figure how to break down 1 egg white.
Cupcake: 100 calories
2 cups fresh strawberries cut in half or fourths
2 T sugar (I'm going to try just 1 T next time)
strawberries in a bowl and sprinkle with sugar. Use two knives working
like scissors to cut the strawberries into smaller pieces. The sugar
will help draw out the strawberry's natural juices and make a really
1/2 c of topping: 45 calories
1/2 c evaporated milk
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 T powdered sugar (must use powdered)
milk in a mixing bowl and place in the freezer until ice crystals form
around the edges of the milk. (Consider freezing your beaters as well)
Mix with a hand mixer on high for 1 minute until frothy. Add vanilla
and sugar gradually. Mix on high for 2 more minutes until stiff. Serve
immediately. (This can only be used on cool or cold desserts. It will
melt on anything hot or warm) Makes 2 cups.
1/4 c whipped topping: 25 calories
