And, unfortunately, I do not have a picture of this....yep, you guessed it. I ate the evidence! I could pull some out of the freezer but I just don't feel like snapping photos right now, the flower beds are calling out to me! The weather is awesome right now and I've spent the last 2 1/2 days outside sprucing up the place to get ready for flower planting time. I got both the front and back decks power-washed off and the patio furniture drug out of storage. I can't decide if I'm going to stain or not....they probably need to be stained but they still have some color left and I'm thinking they might last another season.
But, I got hungry this afternoon for something nice and cold and had some frozen peaches just beckoning at me to use them up...
This is what I made and it really hit the spot..in fact, I don't even think I'll tell Bill I made it...save the last 3 servings just for me! LOL...
2 1/2 cups frozen unsweetened peach slices, slightly thawed. (I used the whole bag, it was a bit over 2 1/2 cups but I couldn't see much sense in putting a half cup back in the freezer. )
2 Tbs. unsweetened orange juice
2/3 cup Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk Powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup Splenda granular (you could use plain sugar here or the Splenda blend, which is half Splenda, half real sugar)
In a blender container, combine peach slices and orange juice. Cover and process on CHOP for 15 to 20 seconds. ( My blender took a lot longer than this...I think I need a new one) Add dry milk powder, vanilla extract and Splenda. Re-cover and process on BLEND until mixture is smooth and creamy. Serve at once or freeze for future use.
Serves 4 (1/2 cup)
Each serving equals:
96 calories, 0 gm fat, 5 gm Protein, 19 gm carbohydrate, 63 mg Sodium, 156 mg Calcium and 2 gm fiber.
Look at that calcium! Women need lots and lots of extra calcium and by using the dry milk powder we are getting a boast of it! Plus, the added benefit of 5 gm of protein! I think this is a very healthy dish!
