It’s #NationalPeachMonth2017 and this is one of my other all time favorite #summerfruits
Peaches are nationally low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and contain an impressive assortment of vitamins and minerals to make it a truly nutritious food. Full of vitamin C and antioxidants as well as potassium, vitamin A and iron! What else could you ask for!
Try this #yummy fresh peach smoothie and try adding your favorite protein powder to it for that extra boost. It’s a great power snack for pre/post workout.
PEACH SMOOTHIE RECIPE!
1 fresh peach, peeled and sliced in to chunks
5 ounce contained of vanilla Greek Yogurt (try one that has extra protein in it and low in sugar)
Can you imagine a day dedicated to yummy coffee cake?
What a great day to celebrate.. we have permission to eat yummy coffee cake on this day.
So in honor of #NationalCoffeeCakeDay, I’m going to share my most famous (or maybe it’s just infamous) coffee cake that I make for ALL my guests who I invite over for dinner, or bring to their home when I ask “what I can bring”….teehee…
So here it goes……….
Randi’s Low Fat/Low Sugar Streusel Coffee Cake
1 box white or yellow cake mix (try the reduced sugar one by Pillsbury)
4 egg whites
1 1/2 cup fat free sour cream
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts or pecans
1/4 butter or margarine, chilled
1 cup Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Measure 2/3 cup of cake mix and put into a medium bowl. Add chocolate chips, nuts, butter/margarine and Splenda Brown Sugar Blend. Mix by hand until crumbly
Pour the remaining cake mix into another bowl
Add egg whites and sour cream and mix with a blender until smooth
Spray a 9-inch springform pan (the kind that has a bottom that drops out) with non-stick cooking spray.
Pour 1/2 the batter into the pan. Spread evenly across the bottom
Evenly sprinkle 1/2 of the crumbly topping on top.
Layer the remaining batter on top of the topping and spread as evenly as you can
Ok folks, this is the best recipe of the Century. I found this on Pinterest. Pinned it, made it and it’s a winner. There is NO baking involved… just a 1 minute on the stove top, mix, , drop, cool and that’s it! 15 minutes total!
I’m serious… not joking….and guess what? It’s so low in calories, fat and sugar..you will want to eat the entire plate in one sitting…

1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk (I used skim)

With a spoon make droplets onto a cookie sheet or plate covered with wax paper or tin foil and refrigerate. Serve after chilled. Makes approximately 36 pcs.
