I got this recipe a couple years ago from a work potluck. This is seriously healthy, with all of the sugar-free and light ingredients.  Another great summer recipe.

1 large box sugar/fat free instant vanilla pudding
1 large can mandarin oranges in juice (drained)
1 regular can pineapple tidbits in juice (drained)

Cinnamon Honey Butter

This is a great recipe for a food gift, or just to have on hand.  I halved the recipe because I wanted to check it out, but you can make more if you're going to share!

I found this recipe at Fly Through Our Window.  If you have a chance, check out her blog. She has lovely photographs.  It makes me want to live at the Gulf Coast!

Here is the recipe:

2 sticks of butter at room temp
1 cup of powdered sugar
1 cup of honey
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon

Using the whisk attachment for your mixer, whip the butter {make sure it’s soft and room temp}. Add to it the powdered sugar, then the honey, then the cinnamon. Whip it good. Scrape the sides. Whip it again.

Serve! Darby's recipe recommended you spoon into 4 on jars you can find at
Wal-Mart.  This recipe makes 6 of those jars.  Seriously, check our her blog, the recipe is towards the bottom of the post I linked.  The pictures she had for this recipe are great!
