I really like the idea of adding shellfish to this - would make it really yummy. Don't think I can get Almond Milk (lcal anyway) here - but I'm sure I could use milk - or something!!! Cals may be a bit higher - but they are very low already!!!

There are recipes for making your own almond milk. I'm sure you can buy plain almonds.

Here is a link for directions How to Make Almond Milk - Recipe (Oh Nuts Blog)

Just don't use the sweetener suggested - use a low carb one. Almond milk is a staple in our house.

Thanks for the almond milk recipe. I've been wondering if I could just start with almond butter, but perhaps sprouting the almonds is a crucial step.

I just refuse to buy almond milk, because let's say all the calories come from the almonds, and there are only 35-40 calories per cup...that's the calories in about 5-6 almonds. A little math...boop beep boop...it's like I'm paying $28-35/pound for almonds (almond milk is not cheap around here)!!!

Just a heads up on making your own almond milk. My Vegan daughter use to do this, but when she figured out the price to make compared to the price to buy ready made she said the ready made was a whole lot cheaper. She stopped making her own after that.

The idea of making your own was only for people who couldn't get it. It looks like a lot of effort, otherwise.

2T oat fiber
1T cocoa
1t gluc
1t psyllium
1t baking powder
1T etherynol
1T yogurt
3T egg whites
enough water to this it out a little more. Leave the dough pretty thick.
I also added some chocolate extract and a little liquid sweetener

No way! It uses so few ingredients! You don't even have to use sweetener--you can make it with just almonds and water, and making it is really simple. Unless almonds are really expensive and almond milk is really cheap where you are, I am highly skeptical.

Haha, I kept thinking about this as I watched a TV show, and I went back to the recipe to examine further. I didn't realize how many almonds you need to make 5 cups almond milk. And maybe blanched almonds are more expensive? (I'm not sure, I've never bought them like that). My friends who have made it have not used blanched almonds; I don't think it's that hard to strain the skins out. I am less disbelieving now, Beeb, I can see how it would be comparable. Sorry to cast doubt on you (undoubtably very smart and money smart) vegan daughter.

That recipe for almond milk sounds delicious, but it makes a very concentrated almond milk at 165 calories per cup (even without the sweetener or vanilla). The low cal, inexpensive almond milks in the stores are made with far fewer almonds. They use thickeners to add a little more body. You could dilute this recipe with an additional 15 cups of water (and some guar gum or another thickener) to make 20 cups of almond milk at 40 calories per cup. It would taste very weak, however, just like the low cal stuff in stores.

Whoa, this is almost TOO rich and filling!

YOGURT PUDDING/"CREAM CHEESE" FROSTING
2 single-serve containers (6 oz) of 0% Greek yogurt (or 1-1/2 cups) 200 calories
1 pkg SF/FF vanilla pudding mix 120 calories
a little extra vanilla, sweetener to taste (or a dash of SF vanilla syrup)
(I also think "toasted marshmallow" would be really good in this!)

--water, almond milk, fat-free half-and-half (or combination)

Whip together yogurt and pudding mix. Add liquid to achieve desired consistency, plus additional flavoring/sweetener.

Makes 4 servings, 80 calories each if using water.

Tonight I used 3 yogurt cups (because they're about to expire and I haven't been into yogurt lately!) to 1 pkg pudding mix, but I think 2 would be a better ratio. I also used light cream, because today's an UD, but it's really rich; I feel like I'm eating cream cheese!

Yup, this is why she buys it now. We can get a 1/2 gallon of Almond milk for $2.99.

Can you explain to me what you mean by what I have in bold? Are there more calories in your new super lowcal muffin or it's not counted because the fiber is so high? I'm confused as to whether we should count the 13.5 calories or add to it? Thanks!!

I should have said it doesn't show the calories in the oat fiber, which your body can't use as fuel since it can't be broken down and used like other carbs can be.
If you're counting fiber calories, it's close to 100 cals judging by the amount of fiber (4 cals per gram of carbs).

Vicky that's sometimes a problem between US labels and not. Here in the states, they show the calories and carbs from fiber, outside they mostly do not, so there can be a big difference(on the label) depending on where it was manufactured, even if it's the exact same product!

I'm having Shirataki noodles for lunch and they say 0 calories. I was going to count 10 for the whole package to be safe, but should it actually be much higher, or should I not count those calories?

Now I'm even more confused!

Thanks!

No, you are fine, I doubt it is even 10 cals. They are a staple of ours and they are fibre, fibre, fibre!

I don't know the calories in this but you only use a few tablespoons as a relish, so I'm going to estimate 5 cals per tablespoon.

Roasted red pepper relish
1 jar roasted red peppers in water (mine had 2 large peppers in it)
3 cloves garlic
handful of fresh parsley
4 green onions
2T balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper

In a food processor grind the garlic, parsley and onions until fine, then add the peppers, vinegar, and some salt and pepper and pulse until it's well mixed and as chunky as you like. Taste and add more salt if needed.
Refrigerate and use as a relish or toss with some salad greens as a dressing, adding a little more vinegar.

Protein fluff

Protein fluff is a good way of making up something to eat rather than drink with a protein powder. If you have enough calorie allowance to make it up with fruit rather than just liquid, it's a very good pudding or snack.

Proteinfluff site has a list of protein powders/varieties with which this method works (reduce some ice to powder, add to protein powder with liquid of choice and whisk until nicely thick. NB, if you use frozen cubes of fruit then you don't need the ice).

However, I'm out of casein and only have whey powder which doesn't thicken naturally with the usual method. I blended down the ice, added the vanilla protein powder already dissolved in what and blended some more, with the motor running I added a little xanthum powder to thicken it and a touch of rosewater for more flavour.

Shirataki Strawberry Applesauce

***Frankenfood Alert***

1 package shirataki noodles
2 T Walden Farms Strawberry Fruit Spread
Cinnamon, or whatever spices you'd like.

I rinsed the noodles well, then microwaved for 1 minute, dried with a paper towel and put in the magic bullet. I added 2 T WF Strawberry Fruit Spread and blended until the consistency of applesauce.

I did not use any spices, but think this would taste good with a little cinnamon. I tried it both warm and cold and like it both ways. I think it would be really good as a garnish with ham or lean pork chops.
