My sisters-in-law (I have 4 of them!) are throwing me a baby shower at the end of the month. And because of the holiday season, I haven’t had a chance to register for baby gifts. So on January 2, one of my sisters-in-law, Christine, urged me to register because she will be mailing the shower invitations soon, and she wants to make sure all invitation information is correct. (I love this about her! She’s just like me… a perfectionist!) So on January 3, when I miraculously found time between family functions (and Christine was skiing the day away!), I made it to the baby stores and got registered!

thumbnail1Here’s another quickie, no sugar added recipe from my good friend Sharon. I just made it today and I love, love, LOVE it!!!  The best part of this delicious frozen treat is that it barely made a dent in my glucose levels. How “sweet” is that?

All you need are a few frozen fresh pineapple pieces and 1/2 cup of coconut milk. The coconut milk has only 1 gram of carbs! (Pineapples, coconuts, bananas? Hmm… I see a theme here. I think I’m having a tropical monkey baby.)

Blend all the ingredients together until slushy, and BAM… Another sugar-free treat! If the mixture isn’t slushy enough, you can put it back in the freezer for a few minutes. You can also add a bit of sugar-substitute is you prefer it to be a little sweeter.

I had this sorbet for a snack this afternoon, and it was yummy! I also had some for dessert after dinner. I was so pleasantly surprised (both times!) that my glucose levels stayed low. Now I have two fruity, no sugar snacks to choose from: this one and the banana with cocoa powder.

You’re the best, Sharon! Keep sending me more recipes.
