Yummy treat without too many calories
In my quest to keep my calorie intake reasonable while not denying myself the yummier things in life I came across Sharon's Mixed Berry Sorbet. Blueberries, Raspberries, Strawberries, Water, Cane Sugar, Lemon Juice and Pectin are the only ingredients in the Mixed Berry flavor and it's only 90 calories a half cup. They pride themselves on their recipes saying "If you can't eat any ingredient in it's raw form it will not go into our sorbet." Their other flavors also include Raspberry, Strawberry, Mango, Lemon, Blueberry, Passionfruit, Coconut and Dutch Chocolate and most of them range from about 75 - 90 calories a serving, although the Chocolate and Coconut are higher. And you can find them in the supermarket. They also make great frozen drinks, with or without alcohol! Check out their recipe page online. Sometimes I just HAVE to have something sweet and these are also very refreshing, especially when I'm craving something higher calorie like ice cream. (I go nuts over Godiva Belgian Dark Chocolate ice cream, but one of their bars is 290 calories, so I can't make a habit of that.) I'm not good at denying myself some pleasure in life (Eat well, love deeply, laugh hard -- that's *my* motto) so I try to live with the tenet "All things in moderation." This is one of those treats that makes it a bit easier to stick to that. A half cup is actually quite satisfying because it's just loaded with flavor.
