Make Mardi Gras “Low Fat” Tuesday This Year

Pierre's Better For You Treats for Low Fat TuesdayHave you bounced back from indulging over the holidays? If so, be warned: Mardi Gras is right around the corner on March 4, and with it comes parties and high-calorie foods like King Cake and Pączkis which help the event live up to its translation of “Fat Tuesday”.

Sure, there are parties and gatherings, but you don’t have to give in to temptation. Join Pierre’s as we reclaim Mardi Gras as “Low Fat Tuesday”, a fun, flavorable celebration of making better choices. After all, living well is hard work, and it’s okay to reward yourself with irresistible ice creams and frozen treats … this time, only better for you.

Use #LowFatTuesday on Twitter and share a healthier choice you are making this year. Maybe you’re putting that new gym membership to good use. Perhaps you’re going lighter on the salt or are drinking more water. Are you walking with your kids after dinner, or with your co-workers at lunch? Or maybe you’re simply selecting better-for-your choices at the grocery store. Whatever you’re doing, let @pierrestweets know!

At Pierre’s, we believe that everybody deserves a treat and are proud to offer a range of lighter alternatives. Our Sorbet is naturally fat free and bursting with flavor. Smooth Churned Light Ice Cream trims the fat – half the fat compared to regular ice cream – to be exact. Made with Splenda®, our delicious Slender® No Sugar Added Reduced Fat Ice Cream offers amazing flavors, even Moose Tracks®, with no added sugar.

In the mood for something tropical? From Margarita to Piña Colada to Mango, ¡Hola Fruta!® Pure Fruit Sherbet is made with real fruit and is naturally low in fat and cholesterol. Try our snack-size ¡Hola Fruta!® Fruit Bars for a quick treat on the go. And with the rich creaminess of Yovation® Probiotic Frozen Yogurt, you don’t have to say “no” to a treat; you can say “Yo!” instead.

All it takes is a simple substitution, and you can have your Pączkis, King Cake, or rather, a frozen treat, this Low Fat Tuesday, and eat it, too. We have the recipes to prove it!

Pierre’s Mardi Gras King Cake Recipe

Try our cool take on a staple Mardi Gras dessert to celebrate Low Fat Tuesday with your family.

The classic Louisiana-style King Cake recipe calls for a bread-like dough stuffed with a nut filling and topped with white icing and colored sugar. For our better‐for‐you Pierre’s Ice Cream King Cake, choose one or more flavors of Smooth Churned Light Ice Cream, Slender® No Sugar Added Reduced Fat Ice Cream or Yovation® Probiotic Frozen Yogurt.

For a taste that’s similar to a traditional King Cake, try using the Vanilla or Butter Pecan version of any of those varieties – or get creative and go for something different, like Waffle Cone Sundae. Better, yet, add all three flavors into the mix!

Ingredients:

  • Pierre’s Smooth Churned Light Ice Cream or Slender® No Sugar Added Reduced Fat Ice Cream or Pierre’s Yovation Probiotic Frozen Yogurt (your favorite flavors)
  • Dried fruit, nuts

First, remove the ice cream from the freezer and let soften for about 5‐10 minutes at room temperature. Don’t thaw for too long, or the ice cream will crystallize when refrozen. Coat the inside of a Bundt cake pan or mold with non‐stick cooking spray, or line with plastic wrap. Scoop the ice cream into the pan. If you are using more than one ice cream flavor, add a layer of each until the pan is full. Place the pan in the freezer 30‐60 minutes to harden.

Remove the pan from the freezer. Set upside down on a serving dish for a few minutes … long enough so the cake slides out easily. You can also use a knife or rubber spatula around the edges. You can “frost” the cake with nonfat or light whipped topping, slice as is or decorate with chopped nuts and dried fruit.

Just for fun: In traditional King Cake, the most famous ingredient is a small plastic figure of a baby. The person who gets the slice with the baby in it is said to receive good luck … although some say it means that the person will have to make a King Cake for next year’s Mardi Gras party! If you choose to go all out, place the baby figurine – available at most craft stores – somewhere among the layers of ice cream.
