Espresso Mousse THM-FP

Coffee, every day, any time, any way!! I enjoy coffee and desserts so why not combine the two into a light refreshing Mousse. Many desserts are full of fats and calories. This Espresso Mousse is full of flavor and protein but light in fats and calories. It is a tasty ending to a meal or for a bedtime snack. I garnished this Mousse with a scoop of fat-free Greek Yogurt flavored with THM vanilla extract and Gentle Sweet, Espresso Powder, and 12 Lily’s chocolate chips to keep it within the guidelines for a FP.

Tomatoes are very popular garden item and can be found in any color, shape, and size. My favorite tomatoes are Heirlooms or open-pollinated kinds.

Cherry Pinwheel Finger Jello THM-FP

Finger Jello is always a highlight for children at picnics and potlucks. These Pinwheels are easy to make and feature unflavored gelatin which is good for your health. Each flavor is whisked together using my favorite stainless steel whisk before it is poured in layers in a 10 x 15 baking pan. Cherry and Strawberry Kool Aid are 2 kinds that I have found that do not have maltodextrin listed as an ingredient so I use them as a handy Drive-thru-Sue ingredient. If you need a snack to keep in your fridge this summer for your children, I’m sure they would love these pinwheels. Sour cream maybe substituted for the Greek Yogurt for an S setting if you prefer.

I added just a bit of cream to get a smooth creamy texture but it still is within THM FP guidelines. I use my hand blender or my Ninja Blender to thoroughly mix it. My family enjoys this drink and I hope you will, too.
