A collection of recipes assembled as part of the RecipeZaar Back-to-School Special. These recipes have been selected because they help introduce more fruits, vegetables and dairy into the family meal plan. At the same time they are low in fat and have low to moderate amounts of added sugar.
This smooth, rich pudding, lower in fat than many recipes, has many variations. For chocolate almond, chocolate rum, or chocolate mint pudding, simply add either 1/4 tsp almond or rum extract, or 2 drops of peppermint extract along with the vanilla. Yum!
These are really tasty, although different from the usual marshmallow treats. They hold together very well, but remained a bit too sticky after cooling. Try keeping them in the refrigerator. I found this recipe at lalecheleague.org.
Great with Salsa, Guacamole, Hummus, whatever you like to dip! Super fast and easy with oil spray. Makes great cinnamon sugar chips for kids and desserts, too. *** Can substitute pita bread for pita chips or corn tortillas for corn chips.
You can use any flavors or colors you like. Because these popsicles are just basically frozen jello, they don't leave a big sticky mess everywhere as they melt, great for little kids! Use Cool Whip for white layers. Ingredients are per box of jello. "Cooking time" is time for prepping and freezing one layer.
This is the recipe for the original rice krispies treats squares...It never fails! Plus, it is a great way to use up a box of cereal! For best results, use fresh marshmallows. I have replaced the butter once with Mott's Healthy Baking butter or oil substitute (it was basically an unsweetened apple sauce) and they still turned out great!
This a great recipe to make with kids and for kids. I sent these along with my daughter for her Valentine's Day party. There are many students with allergies, such as milk, wheat, and nuts, and this was a treat they could all enjoy! Cook time is chill time.
These cinnamon apples taste like a cobbler or pie without the crust. I was looking for a recipe for Cinnamon apples and all I could find were recipes for baking the whole apple - not what I wanted. After much searching I finally came across this recipe - I unfortunately cannot remember the site. It can easily be reduced to 2 or 3 apples, just watch it as it cooks. We serve this over ice cream and it is delicious. It can also be used on pancakes, waffles, or all by itself.
