Helpful Tips

  • This recipe is similar to a frozen soufflé but is lighter and lower in calories.
  • Because of the risk of salmonella poisoning, raw eggs should be used with caution.  Cracked eggs should be avoided.  Recipes calling for raw eggs should be prepared as close to serving time as possible and kept well refrigerated.
  • Make this light, lower-calorie, low-fat dessert a staple in your recipe collection.  Not only does it complement any meal, it is rich in vitamins C and A as well as in calcium from the skim-milk powder.
