VEGAN WHIPPED CREME, MARSHIE FLUFF-- THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!
See update here.
Sound too good to be true? It's not! Julie Hasson and I are working with some unusual ingredients and experimenting, in our own kitchens miles from eachother, and in our own ways, sharing our experiences, failures, and successes. The results so far have been pretty amazing, witness the following successful experiments:
Only 27 calories per 1/2 cup!
Strawberry Shortcake with the above "whipped creme"
Vegan "Marshie creme or fluff"-- a spin-off from the "whipped creme" recipe!
UPDATE: The recipe is on this blog post!
It's sweet, sticky, fluffy and it lasts!
I couldn't resist trying it on small fat-free chocolate cakes (Light and Easy Chocolate Cake from my book "The Almost No-Fat Holiday Cookbook".
Can you see why we're excited? But there's alot of work to do, perfecting the recipes, figuring out the limitations, and the possibilities. Souffle? Angel Food Cake? Meringue? Pavlova? Mousse? Rocky Road Ice cream? Good thing there's no fat involved, or we would turn into blimps!
So stay tuned to both my blog and Julie's for more developments!
All the best!
