A cool and easy, low calorie dessert was a perfect choice, because we are having a heat wave in California and I was looking for a cool dessert, preferably low calorie. I made some orange jello and wanted to dress it up a bit. I had some applesauce, so added some to the dish along with the jello. The combination was refreshing and tasty, plus it was easy to make. I used sugar free jello and unsweetened applesauce, so it made for a healthy, low calorie dessert. Just, what I’d been looking for.
I love dessert, and was looking for something healthy. While browsing through a diabetic cookbook I found a recipe for a fluffy blender orange drink. I thought that perhaps frozen berries might be a nice option, but instead of serving it as a beverage, I decided to freeze it and serve it as an ice cream alternative. I doubled the ingredients and poured it into an ice cube tray and placed it in the freezer. The above photo shows the end result.
Non Fat Milk 1 cup
Frozen Berries 1 cup
Artificial sweetener to equal 2 tsps of sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp Almond Extract
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until foamy.
When mixture is ready, pour into an ice cube tray and place in freezer. When firm place in serving dishes and top with a few berries.
