Vanilla/Caramel Iced Coffee THM-FP

Summertime is rapidly approaching and I am always on the lookout for refreshing drinks to serve to my family and to guests. Iced Coffee is a favorite and this recipe uses leftover brewed coffee from our breakfast time. You can adjust the extracts and sweeteners to your liking if you prefer it less sweet. 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.

Wilted Spinach Salad THM-FP

Spring—what a wonderful time of the year when everything turns green and begins to grow. One of the first seeds to be planted in my garden are spinach and radish seeds.

I can’t wait to plant my garden but since our new place is further north I haven’t planted yet. Maybe this weekend I can get my early crop out.

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.

Coffee Okra Shake THM FP

Okra, a super-food and coffee — what do they have in common? Combined together they make a very tasty, filling shake. Added coffee extract helps to mask the okra taste and don’t forget the maple flavoring. It blends together for a wonderful taste.
