First off, I have to apologize that I haven’t posted in a little while–my husband and I have actually been traveling the past few days, so I haven’t been at my computer very much. I’ll share more about our trip later, but for now: Here’s one of my favorite healthy, protein-packed recipes (I think it will easily make up for my absence):
This recipe is a quick, lovely breakfast I like to make when I feel like having something a little more special. It’s a light strawberry souffle, filled with both protein and fruity goodness. The best thing about it? It only requires a few basic ingredients, and it’s so easy to prepare!
Here’s what you need:
Strawberries, sliced (about one cup)
1 T vanilla coffee syrup (regular or sugar free)
4 egg whites
Salt (just a dash)
Sugar/sweetener (to taste)
Cinnamon (to taste)
Here’s what you do!:
Slice up the strawberries, stir in the coffee syrup, and set aside.
In a large glass mixing bowl, beat the egg whites, salt, and sugar/sweetener until soft peaks form.
Fold in the cinnamon.
Gently pour the mixture into a medium-large, SPRAYED baking pan.
Bake at 350 degrees, for about 15 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center of the souffle comes out clean. While you’re waiting, clean up the giant mess you made in your kitchen while you were looking for the right size mixing bowl and baking pan!
Question: I’m so happy that strawberries are coming in season again. What’s your favorite way to eat strawberries?
