Lactose Free Desserts Recipes (Most Popular)
What can I say? I was experimenting trying figure out how to get the taste of a Mounds bar without paying the "price" of calories and fat.
A lighter soy-based version that satisfies the craving with a filling 11.2 grams of protein per serving.
This is based on changes I made to another SP recipe, trying to lower the sugar and calories. At 83 calories each they aren't quite low calorie but I think they're pretty wholesome for a cookie. Using vegetable oil instead of butter cuts a few calories and isn't as expensive as using Smart Balance.
Cool, refreshing, and decidedly healthful, this is my absolute favorite drink. I despise coffee, and I find this gives just enough caffeine in the morning to gently wake me without giving me jitters. I prefer it iced, but you could just as easily serve warm.
Some info about Matcha:
Matcha is ground green tea leaves native to Japan, used in tea ceremonies there. You know the health benefits of green tea everyone has been raving about? 1 tsp of matcha is as beneficial as up to 6 tsp of brewed green tea leaves because you actually eat matcha powder instead of tossing it away after brewing.
Get yourself a decent matcha powder. Check your local asian supermarkets. Find a container sealed with a vacuum/nitrogen lock. Make sure it is grown in Uji for best quality. "Thin" Matcha is fine for this drink and other recipes.
