We express our many sympathies for this family that remains behind. May the family, friends, and neighbors find comfort in their many treasured memories, and find the needed peace in their hearts at this difficult time of loss.

From the kitchen
This week’s recipes are tailored to the diabetic but anyone can enjoy them, if desired. As the warm summer days approach, many of us enjoy being able to reach for a cool refreshing treat to have once in a while. A “blueberry freeze” is the first recipe.
Place one cup of frozen blueberries, 1/2 cup of pasteurized liquid egg whites, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon of sugar-free grape jam in a food processor, and blend until combined. It will have a soft frozen texture. Pour the mixture into two parfait glasses and enjoy immediately, or keep in the freezer for up to 30 minutes to enjoy later. This recipe makes two servings, with 163 calories, each.
The second recipe to try is “raspberry parfait.” Begin by pureeing 1/2 cup of red raspberries in a food processor until smooth, adding a sugar substitute that equals 2 tablespoons of sugar.
Toast 1 tablespoon of unsalted pecans in a toaster oven for one minute until brown. Remove to cool. Measure out 1/2 cup of low-fat raspberry yogurt and scoop half of the yogurt into a parfait glass. Spoon one-half of the raspberry sauce on top next, then repeat the layers. Top with the roasted pecans, and if desired, add a few raspberries on top.
Chill until ready to eat. Each recipe makes one serving and will be between 161-170 calories, depending on how many raspberries you top the parfait with.
Have a happy…
