(Better than Starbucks) Iced Chai Latte

(Better than Starbucks) Iced Chai Latte ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #iced #chai #latte #recipe

The classic Indian form of spiced tea, chilled … this is a creamy iced chai latte with extra flavor from whole ginger, anise, cloves and cinnamon sticks, sweetened with honey and stevia and topped with light whipped cream, a sprinkle of nutmeg and a little drizzle of caramel. I decided that in my Indian cooking […]


Winter Apple Jack Tea

Winter Apple Jack Tea ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #comforting #hot #cocktail #recipe #skinny

A cozy, comforting adult beverage to help warm you through this winter season. It tastes much like spiked apple cider, but with fewer calories. I’ve been sipping on this apple tea on chilly autumn evenings as I’m working my way back to healthy after catching my daughter’s cold and since we seem to have plunged quickly from fall […]


Maple Spice Apple Crisp

Maple Spice Apple Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lowsugar #apple #crisp

My yoga friend’s apple tree had a plentiful year. For weeks she brought us buckets full of apples, with special bags for us to bring a bunch of apples home with us. I filled up a couple bags of apples and brought them home … I did use a few of the apples, but most of […]


Cherry Vanilla Rose Italian Cream Soda

Cherry Vanilla Rose Italian Cream Soda ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #homemade #Italian #cream #soda #recipe

with low fat,  low sugar and sugar free options Several years ago, my daughter and I were out with one of my friends and we went to a quaint little coffee shop downtown where they had Italian Cream Sodas.

{Copycat} Dorothy Lynch Salad Dressing

Copycat Dorothy Lynch Salad Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #copycat #DorothyLynch #salad #dressing #lowfat #lowsugar #recip

A  yummy Nebraska home-grown recipe for a French Dressing that’s kind of a mid west US obsession … my copycat recipe has less sugar, less fat, but it’s still super delicious and super easy to make at home. I heard them raving about this dressing on the radio one morning on my way to work. […]


Light Rhubarb Pecan Streusel Loaf

Light Rhubarb Pecan Streusel Loaf ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #wholegrain #lowfat #rhubarb #bread #recipe

Adapted slightly from Portland Press Herald I asked my mom to bring me rhubarb … so she brought me rhubarb. My mom brought SO much rhubarb that, even after I’ve made several rhubarb recipes, there is a large sack of rhubarb still taking up most of the top shelf of my refrigerator. One of the […]


Apple Crisp for my Girl {Low Sugar}

Apple Crisp for One {Low Sugar}

We are on a mission to cut sugar from my daughter’s diet, per instructions from her doctor. We have hopes that this will help cure her dizziness problem. I feel so bad for the poor girl … she lived through Halloween without eating even a single piece of Halloween candy (meanwhile her brother was polishing […]


Yum Yum Pumpkin Bars {Lowfat, Low Sugar Option}

Yum Yum Pumpkin Bars {Low fat, with Low Sugar Option}

These pumpkin bars are a simple, healthy treat … I make them multiple times every fall. My son adores them. Usually I frost them with a cream cheese frosting, but this year I thought I would try something different. This year I decided to try a low-sugar version for my daughter. I used Stevia in […]


Skinny Peppermint Mocha Slushie

Skinny Peppermint Mocha Slushie

It’s National Coffee Day … I intended to make it to the coffee shop this morning to buy myself a fancy coffee, but then I got busy with other things … When I finally got home this afternoon, I still had a craving for coffee. I opened the fridge and there sat a pot of […]


No-cook Strawberry Chia Jam {a Berrylicious Post}

No-Cook Strawberry Chia Jam

I found this recipe on the blog Eating Bird Food and I was so intrigued by it. Could you really make jam without cooking, with no pectin and no sugar? Yes, you can! The chia seeds work so well as a thickener and they don’t need to be cooked at all; they just start thickening as […]
