  • Berries & Creams A la Fancy

    Summer is the one season where I feel the weekly urge to have dessert. Seriously, I pass an ice cream shop and my hatred of animal by-products suddenly disappears and I’m all, Could I have a hard scoop of Peanut Butter Swirl on a waffle cone? But even ice cream can get tiresome at times, and therefore I seek healthier alternative desserts. You too? Then see the recipe below.

    Berries & Cream A La Fancy


    4 Waffle Bowls

    1 Container of Silken tofu

    4 heaping tablespoons of Psyllium husk

    1/4 cup of agave or honey

    1/2 lemon wedge

    1 Scoop of vanilla protein powder

    1 cup of mixed berries

    1 sliced up kiwi


    1. Take tofu, psyllium, protein powder, and honey in blender or a electric mixing bowl.

    2. Squeeze in juice from lemon.

    3. Blend or mix until it becomes thick.

    4. Divide cream into bowls and top with berries and sliced kiwi.

    If the cream is not sweet enough add additional honey. The cream should be the consistency of pudding. If it’s still too liquidy add another tablespoon of psyllium. Psyllium is an insoluble fiber and an excellent thickening agent!!

    This dessert is healthy enough to also have at breakfast-just nix the waffle bowl;)

  • When it's to hot for work...

    When it's too hot for your employees to work, it's time for an Ice Cream Social from Provence Catering!!!



    Wow it’s hot.  TOO HOT TO WORK HOT!!! Since early May, it' been a white hot furnace in Philadelphia and the entire Delaware Valley is suffering.  Productivity has been down throughout the region.  It's time to take action and fight back.  We have a great idea you might want to consider.  We recently catered a corporate ice cream social for 500 people and it was a huge success.  Employee morale had been down due to the heat and something needed to be done to get productivity back on schedule.  We proposed an Ice Cream Social with a Smoothie Bar and the frozen refreshments worked wonders. With summer winding down, it's time for everyone to get back to work,  Maybe your staff just needs an employee attitude adjustment as well.    Just a thought….  Cooler heads will prevail.
