Live & Let Pie

We've got a gift for you... a BOOK EXCLUSIVE! This blendy recipe, ripped from the pages of Hungry Girl 1-2-3, is completely guilt-free -- so you can enjoy a sweet, seasonal indulgence any time of day. YUM!

Ingredients:
3/4 cup light vanilla soymilk
1/2 cup canned pure pumpkin (Libby's is best!)
1/4 cup Cool Whip Free, thawed
1 tbsp. sugar-free calorie-free vanilla syrup (like the kind by Torani)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. brown sugar (not packed)
1/8 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, or more to taste
2 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda or Truvia)
1 cup crushed ice or 5 - 8 ice cubes
2 tbsp. Fat Free Reddi-wip
1/2 sheet (2 crackers) low-fat honey graham crackers, crushed

Directions:
Place all ingredients except Reddi-wip and crushed graham crackers in a blender. Blend at high speed until thoroughly mixed.

Pour into a glass. If you like, stir in additional pumpkin pie spice. Top it off with Reddi-wip and crushed graham crackers. Mmmm!

Shake Shock!

The year is almost over, but those pesky seasonal sweets are still lurking around every corner. It's kinda scary out there -- a mega-normous cranberry muffin here, a hyper-caloric minty hot cocoa there, and pumpkin milkshakes EVERYWHERE! From diners to fast-food joints, it's hard to avoid the orange-hued blended drinks. And after seeing them every which where, it's tempting to break down and just buy a pumpkin shake. DON'T! On average, it'll pack more than 600 calories and nearly 30 grams of fat -- WAY too much for a beverage. However, you should treat yourself to something frozen, sippable, and pumpkin-licious... Our smoothie! This one's done right -- creamy vanilla soymilk, seasonal spices, and honest-to-goodness real pumpkin. You will not miss the too-heavy versions at all. Plus, you'll have room for other tasty holiday eats. Hooray!
