Reduced Sugar Substitute
Replace the powdered sugar with your own home made powdered sugar using a sugar substitute. To do this, use approximately 1/8 cup of the artificial sweetener and pinch (about 1/8 tsp) of cornstarch.
Place the sweetener and cornstarch in the blender and grind them together to make the powder.
If you don't have cornstarch on hand, you can skip adding this if you are using right away.
The cornstarch is used as an anti-clumping agent when storing the product.
Let the powder settle before taking off the lid of the blender. Just add your reduced calorie powdered sugar to the recipe as indicated in the directions.
Reduced Fat Substitute
Use fat free cream cheese instead of the reduced fat version. While the fat free has a different texture, it will blend in nicely with the powdered sugar.
Make your own cream cheese using non-fat yogurt. By draining the liquids from yogurt, you can make your own creamy yogurt cheese.
To do this, place a colander in a bowl making sure there is about 2" between the bottom of the colander and the bottom of the bowl.
Line the colander with cheese cloth or basket style coffee filters. Spoon in your cream cheese and place in the refrigerator over night (or at least 2 hours). Once the liquids have been removed you will be able to use the yogurt cheese in this recipe.
Tuna Salad Recipe
This tuna salad recipe goes great with soup, baked potatoes or as a side dish for your main course. There is a lemon French dressing recipe on this same page that tastes tangy and delicious.
This is such a fun recipe to make and has lots of healthy fruits. Just layer the skewer with different fruits and cheeses. Add some veggies for additional color and flavor.
Baked Mahi Mahi
Try something new for dinner. Fish has so many health benefits and makes for a lower calorie dinner idea. This ginger glazed Mahi Mahi mixes the sweet and sour tastes into one dish.
This quick and easy pudding makes the perfect dessert to just about any meal. Pumpkin is a healthy alternative to chocolate and other pudding flavors. This is great for Thanksgiving or during the fall harvest.
These recipes include Asparagus Turkey Roll-ups, a Kabob and Mini Chicken Spread Sammies.
Make some Broiled Cajun Catfish, Garlic and Lemon Cod or Baked Ginger Glazed Mahi-Mahi with these recipe ideas.
