Summer Strawberry Lemonade Sorbet

Strawberry Sherbet

This recipe is super easy and could be a frozen drink or a frozen dessert, depending on how much liquid you use in the recipe.

I squeezed the juice of one lemon, and blended it with half a cup of frozen strawberries and about six ice cubes in my food processor.

I added about 10 drops of Berry Sweet Leaf Stevia to it, as well as about 10 drops of the Lemon Drop flavor (to taste).

Next I used a spatula to scrape it all out into a bowl and enjoyed!
If you would like to make it a frozen drink instead of a thick dessert, just add a little water to the mix.

The perfect end to a good day of dieting!

Enjoy!

Chicken Sausage Cabbage Rolls

Cut open

I was going through my Omnitrition Drops cookbook today, and it mentioned sausage…it sounded good.  I got some cabbage the other day and have been meaning to make cabbage rolls, so this sounded perfect.

First problem, no ground chicken:  Solved, I made my own.  I had three thawed chicken breasts (about 24 oz) and I put them into a food processor with hot smoked paprika, rosemary, parsley, and oregano and pulsed until it was ground.  When that was done, I took it out and pulsed the onion and garlic.  then I mixed them together.

Next I sliced up 16 oz of cabbage, tomato, celery, and onion.

I cooked 16 oz of the sausage up with the veggies until the chicken and veggies were all cooked and added one tablespoon of tomato paste.

I took the outer leaves off of the head of cabbage, and one by one boiled them.  Each was in there for no more than two minutes.  When the leaves got pliable they were removed and placed on paper towels to dry.

Next I weighed the sausage and veggie mix.  I divided that by 4, and then weighed out 4 servings.  I took one serving and wrapped it up in one leaf.  This made four full cabbage rolls.

Somehow, the sausage turned out a bit sweet, but a drizzle of Franks Original Red Hot was the perfect compliment!
