Strawberry Sour Cream Dip

22 Apr

       Trust me, this is the best fruit dip you’ve ever had and the best part is  how simple it is to make. It’s always such a hit with guests, there’s no way you can avoid the double dipping. Another idea I just had is to make little fruit kabobs. A blueberry, piece of strawberry,and  blueberry would make a great kabob and is perfect for your July 4th celebration!

Ingredients are simple:

Sour Cream                         1 Container (regular, don’t use light or fat-free)

Vanilla Extract                   1tsp  (you can add more to taste)

Brown or Raw Sugar         2 tbls (or 7 packets, more to taste)

Combine all ingredients and wisk together. For a smoother dip you can add to a food processor (I like to use my Magic Bullet). I usually add a small amount of sugar and vanilla, blend, and then give it a taste and add more if needed. Just serve with fresh strawberries or treat it like a fondu, cut up different types of fruit and guests can use toothpicks to prevent all that double dipping!

Fat Free Carrot Icecream

7 Apr

This Carrot Icecream is so Delicous and healthy. It’s low in Sugar because the carrot juice is actually very sweet and we use fat free condensed milk.  I made this icecream after buying a juicer and realizing the amazing sweetness to carrot juice.

Ingredients:

2 Cups Carrot Juice

3 Egg Yolks

1 Cup Skim Milk

1 Can Fat Free Condensed Milk

1 packet Gelatin

Directions:

Heat Milk & Condensed Milk on low for 5 minutes, and then let cool down slightly. In a large bowl mix 3 eggs yolks with carrot juice. Once Milk has cooled down add to eggs and juice whisking everything together. Continue whisking and add 1 packet of Gelatin. Add to icecream machine for 25 minutes. Pour into container and freeze for 2 hours and then serve.

This icecream is great because the natural sugars in the carrot juice ae your sweetner so there is no need for corn syrups or melting additional sugar. Also by not heating the carrot juice your icecream will remain full of vitamins!
