Having fresh ingredients on hand makes all the difference in what I eat. So this week, I used the blender to make some fresh herb cubes. I whipped rosemary and parsley together with just a bit of water (1/2 cup to a cup maybe). I spread the smoothied herbs into an ice tray and froze them. Delicious when I'm stir frying chicken or making salad dressing, I can defrost in the microwave and mix in!
Last but not least, aren't these mini-molds fun? I love my rainbow colors. They come in packs of four, so I got two. They are the perfect size for portioning the large jello box: 8 servings, 80 calories. I don't bother taking them out of the mold to eat (though for a dinner party that would be fun). I think they will pack well in a cooler for the beach! Sugar free jello breaks my dependence on Eddy's Tangerine Popsicle. My friend Beth and I came across them in the Baldwin Park Publix last week. I wonder what would happen if I froze them?
