Because…pudding!!

BLUEBERRY LIME COCONUT CHIA PUDDING Luscious, decadent, creamy, lite, zingy, cool…I could go on. This chia pudding is just plain refreshing.  For breakfast, snack, dessert – yes, lets! I recently started eating mostly vegan – trying for 90% on average.  (I was vegetarian before that, so if I decide to have something off the vegan…

How I do love you…!

QUINOA PUDDING Well, well!  I’ve been thinking about trying to do this for a long time and have found a new favorite!  Made with quinoa, this dish has a nuttiness and a little more “chew” than traditional rice pudding where the rice gets very soft.   I’ve given a simple vanilla recipe here, but made…

If you love peanut butter like I love peanut butter…

PEANUT BUTTER PIE WOW.  This is one rich pie.  I made it into a PIE once, actually…since then I freeze it in slightly rounded 1/4 cup portions and stick it away for a frozen nap. (Out of sight, out of mind……  oh, who am I kidding?  I know it’s there, but it’s harder to binge…

Summer Berries Star Again

LEMON RASPBERRY PARFAITS It’s time to take advantage of nature’s gorgeous jewels and this is the perfect light ending to a hot summer day.  Strawberries, blackberries, peaches, nectarines, cherries…anything fresh is wonderful in this. This is another recipe where adding in a scoop or so of unflavored, or vanilla, protein powder would be wonderful…and unnoticable,…

Not your Gramma’s rice pudding…

“RICE” PUDDING Okay…so it’s not rice by ANY stretch of the imagination.  But it’s for sure pudding! I love the flavor of a gorgeous rice pudding, but those white carbs will gettcha quick. I got this idea from a message board (thank you McNee) and added a touch or two of my own.  It has…

Spring Green!

KEY LIME MOUSSE You know the taste…that fresh Key Lime Pie, tart and tangy, yet so sweet it makes your teeth hurt! Well, here’s the filling and you’ll never miss the crust OR the sugar. It’s one of my older recipes and starts with no-sugar-added Sweetened Condensed Milk – and the rest practically makes itself….

Sunday Brunch never had it so good!

CHEESE BLINTZES My low-carb crepes are good for so many things, but this is the original use I had in mind.  Sweet, rich, yet light and fluffy – an indulgent treat that will make you feel very special! Add any flavoring or extract you like to the cheesecake filling and top with berries, sliced fresh…

Like eating a beautiful pumpkin cloud…

PUMPKIN MOUSSE Made with whipping cream, this is not a low-fat dessert.  But a few spoonfuls of this is Heavenly after a big meal or with some coffee in the evening of a special day. Here it’s simply made into no-sugar-added and we’ll let the Fat Fairy deal with the extra calories the day after!…

Pumpkin Whip…a no-sugar-added light ending

PUMPKIN WHIP A fluffy and light change of pace from pie after your big dinner…but every bit as wonderful! Light, not too sweet or heavy…this is one of my favorite desserts – and very quick to whisk together if company comes by, too. ~~~~ . . One 1 ounce package (Four 1/2 cup-servings)  Jell-O sugar-free…

So easy it’s ridiculous…but looks like you’re talented!

LAYERED DESSERT PARFAIT Seriously…nothin’ to it!  The hardest part is waiting for it to set…and then waiting for it to set…and finally waiting for it to set.  That’s it! I used berry/cherry flavors in this, but any gelatin combo is wonderful.  If you can’t find fresh raspberries, do the mandarin oranges and citrus flavored gelatin….

Gingerbread Custard… breakfast-dessert!

GINGERBREAD CUSTARD There is not much more comforting than the silky, velvety, creamy, decadent feel of old-fashioned baked custard! These are so good…spicy and not too sweet.  I love them warm, but chilling seems to accent the flavors.  Breakfast, dessert, midnight-snack – you can enjoy  a guilt-free  little cup of love anytime. ~~~~   ….
