Sugar Free Sunday--Freestyle Edition

Welcome to this week's edition of Sugar Free Sunday! (I'm posting this a day late, but "Sugar Free Monday" just doesn't have the same ring to it.)

I have no pictures for you, because I haven't done any real cooking this week. Last Monday was a travel day as I moved a truck load of stuff from Georgia back home to Louisiana. My sweet son got the entire truck unloaded that same night, but I haven't been that amibitious and it took me until this weekend to even unpack my suitcase completely.

Since I haven't been cooking at all much, we've been taking advantage of some of the wonderful sugar-free products out there. I know that there are those out there who might not appreciate these wonders of taste and convenience, but trust me, I've had the sugar free products that were available "back in the day", and the things that are out now are hands-down better in taste and texture than the ones we used to try to choke down.

These are our current favorites:

  • Popsicle brand sugar-free popsicles are very good, and only 15 calories. But the Tropical flavors are a whole 'nother level--delicious
  • Blue Bell No-Sugar Added Ice Cream--we're on our second tub of Country Vanilla flavor.
  • Murray Sugar Free Cookies come in a variety of flavors, and are widely available--not all stores carry all of the flavors, but so far I've found them at Dollar General, Walmart, Publix, and Brookshire Brothers.
  • Jello Brand instant sugar free pudding comes in lots of wonderful flavors. So far I've tried the vanilla, chocolate, butterscotch, white chocolate, and cheesecake flavors--keepers, every one.

And did you know that Blue Bell No-Sugar Added Country Vanilla Ice cream, combined with a dollop of any flavor of Jello sugar-free pudding, with the addiiton of a splash of milk, topped by a few crumbles of Murray sugar free cookies, makes pretty mean milk-shake? Don't ask me how I know.

What sugar free goodies have you made or come across this week?

Until next time, good (un)cooking, and good eating!
