1 can (14 oz. chicken broth)99%fat free
1 can tomato sauce (8 oz.)no salt added
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder

Heat oil in large saucepan; stir in flour & chili powder. Cook for 1 minute then all remaining ingredients. Bring to boil & simmer for 10 min. Refrigerate extra.

Strawberry Cheesecake Shake - FP

Yum! I made this Strawberry Cheesecake Shake this morning.
I did change it slightly...

1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese

Blend until smooth. If you like cottage cheese you will like this shake. Next time I think I will add 1 cup of almond milk (since it's 1 point for up to 1 cup). I had to add some water to loosen it up because I didn't follow the instructions and blend before adding in the strawberries. Really good.

Also, I may add some protein powder or flax seed next time. And, I could experiment with different fruit! I see blueberries or peaches in my future...
