You might have noticed that Six Sisters' Stuff is pinning a lot of TodaysTaste.com. The reason is because I am actually one of the sisters! My name is Kristen and I am the second sister. (You can find more about me HERE) My husband and I started this blog because we trying to live a healthy lifestyle.
My blog is officially 3 weeks old and I'm going to be completely honest with you. I am Loving Essential Oils. I never thought I would be.... I thought they were a little out there. :) When I was first introduced to Essential Oils... I didn't really get all the hype about it. I tried a little DoTerra but they were expensive and I felt a lot of pressure that I needed to sell them (which I really did not want to do). Then I met a women named Jillee from the blog: One Good Thing By Jillee and her sister Rebecca from the blog Camp Wander and they introduced me to a new brand of oils: Spark Naturals.
I have never been more impressed with a company than I am with this one. I have met a few of the owners and they just are amazing! Not to mention... Spark Natural Oils are a lot less expensive than any other oil. And I don't have to sign my life away to buy them. This isn't an MRM company... they are just passionate about oils. - And that is what sold me- (well... and the price!)
Please note....I am very new to oils but I am so excited to learn more about them!
This blog is going to be my way of learning/experimenting with oils, cooking healthy food, and focusing on being healthy!
Now on to my Guilt Free Strawberry Shortcakes!
I still love a small treat every now and again. This Strawberry Shortcake is about 100 calories and it tastes delicious! I don't feel too bad about eating this, and I don't feel too bad about feeding it to my kids!
Guilt Free Strawberry Shortcakes (made with Essential Oils)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup orange juice
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
5 drops of Spark Naturals Lemon Essential Oil
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries (about 1 pint)
6 Slices of Angel Food Cake (There are about 12 slices in a whole angel food cake)
Stir cornstarch and orange juice in a small pot. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly 1 minute or until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla and Lemon Essential Oils. Cool 5 minutes in the refrigerator.
Combine orange juice mixture and strawberries in a bowl; stir gently. Cover and chill until it is all the way cooled (About 15 minutes)
To serve, spoon sauce over dessert shells. I added 1 Tablespoon of Fat Free Cool Whip, but it tastes awesome without it also!
(The lemon Drops can be optional... but it tastes amazing with them in!)
