In honor of the $1,500 worth of Preparedness Giveaway this month I thought I’d pass along one of my favorite recipes using this great shelf-stable dairy product combined with some of my favorite freeze-dried fruits. If you didn’t know, Spiff-E-Whip is one of the 65 different prizes being given away for this special event!
Spiff-E-Whip is definitely one of my “must have products”. It’s got no fat and only 2 grams of carbohydrates per serving. I can turn it into a pie filling, pudding, fluffy topping, chocolate mousse, or a frosting with nothing more than water and a little whisking.
When I use freeze-dried fruit in this recipe instead of frozen, the fruit tastes nice, fresh, and plump, not mushy. I couldn’t believe it when I first tried it. I could have sworn that fresh produce was put into the dish right before I took a bite! Using the same water which I reconstitute the fruit in is one of my ways to make the dish a little bit more flavorful, and depending on what fruit you use, it also gives it a little bit of festive color. I like to use freshly grated orange zest, but I have made it with dried orange zest before to satisfactory reviews—after all, I may not always have fresh orange zest available, right?
One of the nice things about this recipe is that Five Star Preparedness is offering Spiff-E-Whip as one of its group buy specials this month. Even better, they are offering it in a #10 can. I’m excited about that because I can only get it from the local stores and manufacture in the smaller 20 ounce size. So I definitely plan on snagging several. Be sure to enter to win in the $1,500 Preparedness Giveaway often and you could snag some for FREE!!!
Freeze-Dried Spiff-E Fruit Mousse
Place them in a bowl or a pitcher and then cover them in 3 cups of very cold water. Let stand for about 15 minutes.
Drain the fruit, reserving the liquids from the fruit reconstitution.
In a separate bowl, mix together 2 Cups of Spiff-E-Whip and 1 ½ cups of the reserved liquid from the fruit. Mix on high with an electric mixer until creamy and fluffy. Add 1 teaspoon of almond extract. Gently fold in the drained reconstituted fruits.
Dish into small dessert dishes and top with about 1 tablespoon of freshly grated orange zest.
Makes 6 to 8 servings
