Happy Halloween my friendly food followers. Pumpkins and Halloween go hand in hans so why not try serving up some Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt this season. After experimenting with some low fat pumpkin drink recipes I had some left over pumpkin puree. I thought to myself what can I make with this left over pumpkin and it hit me, frozen yogurt. Here you have a delicious low fat pumpkin pie in the form of a frozen treat. Super creamy, yummy and not overly sweet. 1/2 cup is 2 weight watchers points. Top with low fat whipped cream and sprinkle a little extra pie spice and dig in.
1 cup Canned Pumpkin Puree
1 cup Non- Fat Greek Yogurt
3 tbls Honey
1 tsp Pumpkin Pie spice OR (1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ginger, 1/4 teaspoon allspice)
Place all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and stir until combined.
Place mixture in an ice cream maker and let churn for 20 minutes, or until cold and creamy. No ice cream maker? No problem just place in the freezer for 2 to 3 hours and stir every 30 minutes.
Serve immediately or place in the freezer for another hour if a firmer texture is desired.
NOTE: If you don’t have an ice cream maker, just place yogurt in the freezer for 2 – 3 hours stirring every 30 mins.
Honey Mustard Snapper? Yes, it sounds like an odd combination, but what a tasty recipe. My hubby and I were really quite surprise with how well this turned out. A great change from the usual fish recipes out there and jam packed full of flavour. Total weight watcher points is 5 for the fish and 1-2 tablespoons of sauce. Serve with a nice side salad or as we did green beans with a little miss dash herb and garlic seasonings.
2 (3-4 ounce) fillets Snapper
1 tbls Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tbls of Lemon Juice
2 tbls Rice Wine Vinegar
1 tbls of Honey
1 tsp of Mustard
1/4 cup of Green Onions
In a shallow bowl, mix together olive oil, lemon juice, rice vinegar, mustard, honey, green onions.
Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat.
Dip snapper fillets in marinade and let sit for 5 mins each side to make sure both sides are fully coated.
Place in pan and pour 1/2 of the marinade over top.
Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
Fish is cooked when you can flake it easily with a fork. Serve and Enjoy.
This weekend my hubby and I were camping in Jasper. I just love the mountains, something about that fresh, crisp mountain air just makes me smile. One of my favorite treats to make while camping is Bannock. Bannock is a flat bread or biscuit made with flour and is super yummy when served with butter, honey or jam. This is an easy and fun recipe to make while out camping with the family. It’s really fun if you use a stick to cook the Bannock. I could not find a good stick to use so I just fried it in a pan with a little bit of butter. You could also use a roasting stick to cook the Bannock, just make sure it’s kneaded tightly to the rod before cooking it. Points value if I had to guess would be about the same as a slice of bread 2-3 points for once piece. Add extra points for the toping you decide to use. Since I cooked mine in butter I didn’t add any extra toppings.
2 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 Tbsp oil, butter or lard
1/3 cup warm water, add more if needed
Add all dry ingredients in a bowl.
Mix until crumbly.
Slowly add water and mix until dough feels soft.
Keep working the dough till it holds together.
Either make a small ball and flatten to fry in a pan with butter or take a small handful and wrap around the end of a green stick and knead it so it stays together on the stick.
Cook over fire for about 10 – 12 minutes, rotating to cook evenly.
