Have you ever seen something that was such a great deal that you just couldn't pass it up? You didn't necessarily have a need for the item and honestly had no idea what you're gonna do with it, but you went ahead and bought it anyway? Yeah, me too.
Last weekend, as hubby and I were looking for some last minute ingredients to complete our Super Bowl menu, I stumbled across some sugar free strawberry glaze marked down to .39. I had to get it. Who passes up thirty nine cent sugar free strawberry glaze... apparently not me and so began my quest to find something to do with aforementioned sugar free strawberry glaze.
Of course strawberry shortcake was the most obvious answer, so I decided to try my basic mug cake recipe, increase the vanilla, then top with fresh whipped cream and the s.f. glaze. It was pretty darn good. Definitely calmed the sweet craving, without much guilt. (6 net carbs)
Honestly though, I am still not very fond of the aftertaste of the glaze. It just tastes very "artificial" to me. It's definitely not the strawberry shortcake flavor you remember from your childhood... unless your Mom or Dad was diabetic, but it is still really good for when you need a sweet treat.
*If you don't have liquid, you can always use the packets or granulated, but it will add hidden carbs.
* The glaze should be in the fruit and veggie section of your grocery store.
