So many people have great recipe ideas that they send me and I receive a lot of requests for what I do that I decided to dedicate a recipe page for everyone’s benefit.  Come back often for new ideas as they happen and some great options for your nutritional choices.

Wednesday, September 29, 2010 –  This is the shake that the kids and I had this morning.

Crustless Pumpkin Pie

  • 1 15 oz. can pumpkin
  • 1 12 oz. can evaporated skim milk
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves(optional)
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. allspice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 Cup Splenda (or Stevia to taste)
  • 9″ round pie pan
  • Non-Stick Spray
  • Large Bowl
  1. Mix: Combine Pumpkin, evaporated milk, egg whites, vanilla and Splenda in the bowl. Whisk until smooth.
  2. Spices: Add in all the spices and the salt. At this point, if there are other spices you prefer, you can add them now.
  3. Bake: Spray your pie pan with non-stick spray. Pour in the mixture. Bake on 325 for 50 minutes. Then crank it up to 425 to brown it on top. Before removing from oven, insert a toothpick in the center of the pie. If it comes out clean,  it’s done. If not, give it another 5 minutes and test again with the toothpick.
  4. Serve:

Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

6 ice cubes

1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree

1/3 cup water

1/2 cup vanilla-flavored unsweetened almond milk

2 packets Splenda (optional)

Cinnamon (to taste 1-3 tsp)

Nutmeg (to taste- 1-3 tsp)

OR

pumpkin pie spice (1-3 tsp-again to taste)

1 scoop Carrie’s vanilla protein powder

 

Add all ingredients in the blender—mix—enjoy

Nutty Monkey Protein Smoothie

1 scoop of my protein powder-chocolate, 300ml water, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 tbsp of natural peanut butter, 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond mix

Blend and enjoy–that is the whey (get it-hehehehe) to start your day and power up — nurish your body and brain!

MOJITO WATER

Ingredients: 2 litres distilled or purified water, 2 limes, handful of mint leaves, ice (optional)

Squeeze the juice out of two fresh limes into a small measuring cup or bowl.  Add fresh mint leaves (I use lots) and pulverize them with the lime juice. Add the mint/lime (leaves and pulp) to the water and chill.

Serve over ice. You can also add lime wedges to the glass.  I strain off the mint leaves when I pour it into the glass, but you may like to keep them in the glass. As the pitcher sits in your fridge the juice of the limes and the mint infuses the water and it just gets better and better.

I started this as a nice summer drink, but have also made hot tea using the water for a ‘warm-me-up’ drink.

ENJOY!!!

  1. I gave the easy peasy meat loaf to my son who not too fond of vegetables (if you know what I mean). Shredded green pepper, onions, zucchini and carrots. He loved it and ate half of it (he is a very active 12 year old). My husband and I polished off the rest. Never figured out what a big glug was but it worked! Thank you Carrie!!!!

    1. I have also been making the meatloaf once a week … and i puree a cup or random veggies to throw in it … then follow your basic idea :) The kiddies and the hubby who detest veggies don’t even know that its full of broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, onions, mushrooms, etc :)
