Fruit Sorbet

INGREDIENTS:

  • ¾ cup boiling water
  • 1 package sugar free Jello
  • 2 cups cold club soda (not tonic!)
  • ½ cup sugar substitute

METHOD:

Mix the water, jello mix and sugar until all the ingredients are dissolved.

Add the club soda and then put the mix in a 9" square pan in the freezer for 1 ½ hours.

Take the mix out of the freezer after you have ice crystals forming 1" around the edge of the pan. Spoon the half frozen mixture into a blender, mix, and then put it back in the pan in the freezer.

That’s it! When it comes out it’s hard as a rock so you need to let it sit on the counter for 15 minutes or so before serving.

It’s a bit less like true sorbet and a bit more like the stuff you put in a snow cone, but it’s nice for a change and for summer.

For variations, you can add in 1 - 1 ½ cups of mashed fruit. For instance, use lemon flavored Jello and put in a cup of honeydew melon.

Another variation uses black cherry Jello with ½ tsp of lemon zest and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice.

Protein Powder “Cookie”
*makes 1 cookie

INGREDIENTS:

(all measurements are approximate - I used a little less than ½ tsp of the liquid spray margarine).

  • ½ scoop of Protein Powder
  • ½ tsp liquid spray margarine (0 calories for 5 sprays…but there must be some calories in it if you add up the sprays…I use less than the ½ tsp)
  • ½ - 1 tsp of splenda or stevia (depends on how sweet you like it - or a flavoured sugar-free syrup works too)
  • splash of water

METHOD:

Mix all ingredients together until it forms a “ball” and then place the bowl/cup into the microwave for about 30 seconds (20-25 seconds if you want it more chewy). Then I use the same fork or spoon I mixed it with to pop the cookie out of the cup, then let it cool for a second. (At 25-30 seconds in the microwave, it expands to maybe the size of half of your palm). Done!

Makes a cookie-like treat. Yes, not quite the same, but still a nice sweet treat.

Kale Chips
preheat oven to 400 degrees

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 bunch of fresh kale, washed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar free, no sodium rice vinegar

METHOD:

Cut away all the “ribs” all the hard bits, they taste sour if you leave them on and ruin the crunch/taste effect.

Tear the remaining parts into pieces and throw into a bowl, add 1 tablespoon olive oil + 1 tablespoon sugar free no sodium rice vinegar – you can find this product at Save On Foods (Marukan) .

Hand mix until all leaves are damp. The more saturated the leaves the better crunch.

Grab a cookie tray and lay all leaves out flat, bake at 400, keep poking into oven and mixing around so they all get nice and evenly crispy, they will look a bit brownish when done. As long as they are crispy they are ready.  Approximately 20 minutes.

Enjoy!
