Filed under: recipes — mommy1st81 @ 3:59 pm

My husband made me these for breakfast yesterday morning and they were so good!!!  I put all the calories into my recipe calculator and they are only 100 calories for 1!  Great with a side of fruit or even a smoothie:)

Here’s the recipe:

1 pillsbury creasant rolls

1 apple chopped and diced

zero calorie spray butter


1 cup of splenda

1 cup of sugar

Chop apple, set aside.  Mix all dry ingredients into bowl and add apple.  Spray each creasant roll with spray butter.  Spoon mixture evenly among the 8 creasant rolls and fold up.  Put in 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes…..enjoy!!!

Okay so you probably can tell by now that I am obsessed like my blender a lot!! I just think that it is a must have for any kitchen, especially when you are on the go like I am and still need to eat right! So here’s a recipe that I whipped up tonight and according to my recipe calculator( thanks to sparkpeople) it makes one 3/4 cup and is 198 calories. Not bad for a chocolate shake!  Under 200 calories is great compared to Jack in the box chocolate shake which is 797 calories!!! Go ME!!!!!!!!!!

Quick chocolate ice cream shake:

1 cup of low fat, low cal, sugar free vanilla ice cream( I used bluebunny)
2 TBSP of sugar free chocolate syrup

Put into blender and blend until smooth…..enjoy!:)

My Mom and I signed up for the produce co-op called You get 50% vegetables and 50% fruits and for $15 and you can add on bread, avocado’s, herbs for an additional fee. We added on the Italian package and got some mushrooms, onions and Italian herbs and spices. All of the items we got were locally grown and picked at a discounted rate!

mangoes, 3,
Bananas, 8

cantaloupe, 1
