Lightbulb Strawberry Ice Whip

Strawberry Ice Whip

Hot weather and you don't want to spend time baking? This is the answer. Nothing could be simpler or quicker and oh so refreshing! Prep time is only 20 min. the rest is freezer time. You can also try this with what ever fruit you like such as cherries, blueberries, mango, etc.

2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons fresh pressed lemon juice
2 egg whites (I use large eggs)

8-10 servings 6 hours 20 minutes 20 mins prep

1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Beat in an electric mixer on high speed for 20 minutes until mixture triples in volume.
3. Freeze until firm.

Default Fake Guacamole

this is one of my favorite recipes because i become addicted to guacamole in the summer. once a week is fine but if i had it my way i would eat it for every meal. now i can.

2 cans of asparagus
one half red onion diced fine
i jalepeno diced fine
juice of one lime
any seasonings you would like to taste. ( i use salt, cumin, and a little bit of garlic powder.)
(my mother in law just buys guacamole seasoning in the package and adds it to the asparagus.)
diced tomatoes. ( i like tomatoes in my guac., some people dont though.)

just blend the asparagus until smooth. this can easily be done with a fork but a food processor will give you a much more uniform blend.
then add everything else and mix. one cup of this stuff is only about 50 calories. there is no fat. it looks like the real thing and almost tastes like it too.

Default Garlic Chicken with Peppers/Onions

This recipe is a great tasting and healthy choice and its also very quick and easy!

2-4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
1 bell pepper cut up into strips
1 red onion cut up into strips
garlic/garlic salt to taste
1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil

Clean chicken breasts. Sprinkle each breast with garlic salt (both sides). Place cut up bell peppers and onions over chicken breasts. Sprinkle with more garlic. Drizzle olive oil over chicken/veggies. Bake in oven at 350 for 35 minutes or until chicken is done. Serve with mixed veggies of your choice!

We made this the other night and the flavor was incredible!
