coffee cake for one - a recipe

Coffee cake is one of my new go-to foods for breakfast.  Eaten with fluffy (unsweetened) whipped cream, it is truly scrumptious.  I really do love being a Trim Healthy Mama!

I certainly can not take credit for this fabulous tasting treat.  Credit goes to the amazing RohndaSue.  She shares recipes for delicious, healthy treats and family meals.  Subscribe to her blog and follow her on Facebook.  Her food photography alone is worth the read!

This image was designed to be a quick reminder of the ingredients, for those who have used the full instructions before.  I like to have the recipe stored in picture form, so I can access it on my phone.  You might like to do the same.

How do you store the recipes you go to again and again?

The recipe in the image is written to my taste.
I have made some minor modifications.

turkish delight slushie - a recipe

This drink seriously tastes like turkish delight confectionery.  All you Trim Healthy Mamas out there know that traditional turkish delight is way off-plan, being made from sugar, sugar and sugar!!  But this delicious, frosty drink is bang on-plan.  Fuel Pull if restraint is used when adding the strawberries or E if you find your handful to be on the generous side.

Rosewater can be found in most supermarkets and is the base for the fragrant, rosy drink.  Lemon essence or oil provides the sour contrast to a balance the sweetness.  You could also get away without adding the gluc, it would just be more icy.  Or try using xanthan gum.  No health benefits like gluc but it is more accessible and will produce a comparable result.
