Mint Chocolate Iced Latte THM-FP, SF, Low Carb, GF

Coffee is a favorite drink of mine as you probably can tell by now! This Mint Chocolate Iced Latte is delicious and so refreshing! You can’t go wrong paring these flavors together. The Latte in itself in is a FP but if you garnish it with whipped cream as pictured it is an S. I will often drink it without whipped cream but it is special to serve to guests with garnishes and my daughters think it need whipped cream, too!

Fried Apples THM-E, Sugar-free, and Dairy-free option

It would be embarrassing to tell you how quickly this platter was emptied at my house. My family loves it!!

No-bake Fresh Peach Cheesecake THM-Crossover

If you are like me–you wish peach season would last longer. This fluffy cheesecake features peaches. Even better yet, it is a no-bake dessert so you don’t have to turn your oven on. The walnuts in the crust add a delightful crunch and pair with the smoothness of the filling. There are so many peaches varieties to pick from but my favorites for fresh eating are Red Haven, Sun High, and Contender.

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.
