Non-Alcoholic Skinny Shake Recipe
This 95-calorie shake is guaranteed to keep the cobwebs out of your weight loss plan. Peachy goodness drowned in a healthy dose of milk - what more could a dieter ask for? Except perhaps a drop on the old weight loss scales.
Blossom Possum, a Skinny Shake Recipe
Serves 2 for about 95 calories each
2 cups of ice cold skim or reduced fat milk
1 cup of frozen peach slices
1 teaspoon of REAL vanilla extract
1-3 packets of Splenda if extra sweetness is desired
Blend until thick and frothy. Pour into chilled glasses and enjoy.
This diet drink is absolutely delicious - we kid you not! And look how easy it is to prepare. As to the reduced fat milk, if you don't like skim then opt for regular milk and now you'll have three servings rather than two.
Cutting the serving size back to about one-third will keep the calories about the same. And now you can invite one more friend to your party.
Speaking of parties - let's see what other goodies we can create that will fit nicely into your weight loss plan.
Diet Recipes With Peaches as the Star
Let's place the focus on peaches. Where we currently reside the soil is a sandy loam and the peaches thrive here. Every year in early summer they entertain a peach festival. Generally, it's about a billion degrees outdoors when the festivities occur - and a bit too hot to mingle through the dense crowds, but it's one swell peachy event.
When you're choosing peaches at the market, take a whiff of the fruit. If it emits that lovely peach scent - then more likely than not it's going to be a delicious, sweet specimen. So often the fruit at the local market is bland and tasteless due to food engineering.
Oh the modern ways of the modern world. I remember the days when a strawberry was still a strawberry - and when you bit into it, well...it was like a gift from heaven. Even theaddition of a sponge cake put the fruit over the sweetness meter. That berry was absolutely divine on its lonesome.
Let's move a space forward to our low calorie recipes staring the infamous Ms. Peach, shall we?
Fairy Peach Yogurt: There is no need to purchase yogurt containing fruit as you can create your own fresher versions at home - and in our tasty recipe, you can add a lot of volume. Start with 50 calories worth of light whipped topping. Add a single reduced-sugar vanilla or plain yogurt to the topping. Be sure to be very careful - fold the two ingredients together. If they are beaten, the
topping will collapse (how would I possibly know this...).
As to that sugar-reduced yogurt, you can purchase the sugar free versions if you wish. But with all the concerns over sugar substitutes these days, opting for the sugar-reduced varieties is a wise decision. Back to our recipe....
Next, add 1/2 of a small peach that has been seeded and cut into bite-sized chunks. If you wish, you could peel the peach and puree it before incorporating it into the 'fairy' yogurt. Add a splash of vanilla extract.
Spoon into a beautiful serving container; a clear container will allow you or your guests to admire the dessert as it is enjoyed. This is a very attractive dessert.
Add one more dollop of whipped topping to the top of the Fairy Peach Yogurt and a sprinkle of ground cinnamon. If you wish, you can add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon to the yogurt mixture if you wish.
Recipe Ingredients for Fairy Peach Yogurt, a low calorie recipe for dieters
1 single container of vanilla or plain reduced-sugar yogurt
Whipped Topping (50 calories worth; the lighter fat free varieties will allow you to use more topping)
Vanilla Extract, Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Small Fresh Peach
Peachy Pork Chops Recipe
Another easy Diet Bites original recipe requiring minimal ingredients. You will need a lean thin pork chop, a teaspoon of vegetable oil and a Tablespoon of peach preserves or jam.
Place the oil in the pan and heat; when the oil is warm add the lean pork chop. Salt and pepper if you wish on both sides. Cook until it is golden brown in color on both sides.
Next, add the peach preserves to the pan and thoroughly coat the pork chop by turning.
This is such a delicious recipe - and again, it contains only two main ingredients. The pork chop contains about 140 calories; the preserves contain about 50 calories - but much of the preserves will be left in the pan. Therefore, for less than 200 calories you can enjoy this yummy entree.
Serve on a bed of white whole grain rice with a side of beautiful green beans. Add a slice of whole grain bread and a low calorie beverage.
