How To Make An Easy Snack Like Cherry Limeade Fresh Whips

Cherry Limeade Whips www.HealthyPetPeeps.com

The perfect complement to any springtime table setting, it just doesn’t get any better than this sweet treat! Not only does it double as festive décor, it's also loaded with nutrition. Packed with protein from egg whites, a super-health boost from Life's Abundance Minerals & Antioxidants and minimal sugar, the crowd will come running for more.

This simple recipe yields about 45 cookies.

INGREDIENTS:

2 egg whites

2 scoops Minerals & Antioxidants (Cherry or Tropical Fruit Flavor)

1/2 C confectioner sugar

1/4 tsp lime zest

DIRECTIONS:

Place the oven rack in the top 1/3 of the oven and preheat to 350 (see overnight method) or 225 degrees (see alternate method). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat egg whites on medium-high speed until soft peaks form (about 15 minutes). Slowly add sugar one tablespoon at a time and keep beating until stiff peaks form. Once all of the sugar has been incorporated, sprinkle Minerals & Antioxidants one scoop at a time and beat for another 2-3 minutes.

Spoon small dollops (about 1-inch round) onto the parchment paper. Or, you can pipe the batter onto the parchment using a pastry bag and 3/4-inch tip. Dust each cookie with a sprinkling of lime zest.

Overnight Method (325 degrees):  Once the cookies are in the oven close the door and turn the oven off. Do not open the door until morning.

Alternate Method (225 degrees):  Bake the cookies for 35 minutes and then turn the oven off, allowing the cookies to continue drying as the oven cools.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to five days. Enjoy!

Gluten Free! Vegan! Non-GMO! Dairy Free! Soy Free! Tastes Fabulous! What Is This Product?

You had me at Gluten Free but then said Vegan, Non-GMO, Dairy Free, Soy Free AND Tastes Great?!? Ok, this Plant Protein Powder is da Bomb! Seriously guys, you are going to love this. We use the Vanilla Plant Protein Powder every morning in our smoothie. It's smooooth and silky. I remember our old protein powder was chalky and never mixed well by spoon. In the morning we use our blender since we are adding frozen fruit to our smoothie. However, post workout, we would just add our protein powder to a glass of water or almond milk and it would never mix up. This Plant Protein Powder does! Another big win!

In the afternoon, we like a snack. I'm sure most of you do and it's very easy to grab a chocolate bar or some chips. If you're craving chocolate, you have to try the Chocolate Plant Protein Powder! You can just add it to the milk of your choice and that is a much healthier option than grabbing a chocolate bar and just as easy. If you have a little more time, you can make the Banana Split Smoothie that I talk about in this video. It has stopped me from wanting to drive to the local ice cream shop for a banana split. Another big win!
