Finally! We moved, but it’s not all smooth sailing yet. We’re living out of boxes and we don’t have a kitchen yet. While our perfect kitchen is being built (which we will be talking about soon), I’m going to have to get crafty. I do have many plug-in appliances (rice cooker, toaster oven, panini press, waffle maker, microwave, etc.) so we’re still going to have a ball here. I think we’re going to be pleasantly surprised with how much I (or you) can do without a kitchen. (Gulp) Determined to eat well every single day without exceptions, here goes…

Before the string of cold days, we had some wonderful hot days, and that’s when I started thinking about one of my favorite summer treats. I am such a huge fan of ice cream and gelato, but occasionally, I want something lighter. Starting in high school, I would often grab FrozFruits at the delis nearby. Chunky Strawberry was/is my favorite.

Recently, I was ready to grab a Chunky Strawberry and I thought to check the ingredients. Yup, it’s made with high fructose corn syrup! That was it, I would have to make my own. I wanted to maintain what I do love about it though, the very strawberry flavor (deceptively natural), the chunks of strawberries in it, and the cool satisfying feeling it left me with every time. I made special care to keep all parts of the bargain and the result was better than I could have hoped for.
