PB&J Smoothie

Today I bring you the PB&J Smoothie. Because, delicious!

I hope your winter is treating you well, ours is really mild in comparison to the past couple of years, which I am very thankful for. Less snow means we can get outside more and enjoy life; instead of being stuck inside and having cabin fever for 12 weeks.

With the warmer weather I have been thinking about summer a lot, recently. We are going on vacation in this summer to the Outerbanks, NC and I want to be able to wear a bathing suit and feel confident!

This is a delicious recipe that comes out to about 300 calories per serving, but can vary depending on the ingredients you use. It’s a great lunch replacement drink!

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies 

So recently I had a horrible reaction to wheat (instant blood blisters in my mouth and half my face went numb), so no more wheat for me! At first I freaked out and didn’t know what I was going to make, but I came across this super easy recipe and I thought I would share! 

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies 

  • 1 cup peanut butter 
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 1 egg 

Bake at 350 for 12 minutes and voila done! 

  

Non-Dairy Pumpkin Pie

I am here to treat you to a non diary pumpkin pie recipe!

My 5 year old has a milk allergy, milk makes her break out in hives and because of this she’s had to miss out on some of her favorite foods. Including pumpkin pie, until now!!

I did some experimenting and found the best way to make a non dairy pumpkin pie and it’s super easy!

Pillsbury makes a dairy free premade pie crust, which makes life easier because I could use crisco and make a homemade pie crust, but really, who has time for that? 😉

Ingredients

1 can (12-15oz) pumpkin purée
2 large eggs
1.5 cups Blue Diamond Half Almond Half Coconut Milk Blend (though I’m pretty sure any milk substitute would do)
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice ( or 1 tsp of each cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger)
1 cup Truvia baking blend (or 1.5 cups sugar)

Mix everything together in a large bowl, pour into the pillsbury deep dish crust or into a crust less deep dish pie pan, bake at 350 for 1 hour. Enjoy!

Okay, seriously everyone, this 3 Minute Pumpkin Pie in a Mug is my favorite recipe so far. It’s soooo good. Yum! I actually had to make one for each person, because everyone wanted some when they tasted it!

What you’ll need:

1/2 cup Pumpkin Puree
2 tablespoons oat flour or 3 tablespoons oats (oat flour is just ground oats, super easy if you have a blender!) 2 tablespoons Truvia Baking Blend (or 2 packets stevia)
1 egg
1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice – I actually didn’t have this, but I assume it would be easier, I used about 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp clove, 1/4 tsp ginger, 1/4 tsp all spice
1/4 tsp baking powder

Mix it all together and microwave for 3 minutes (900 watt microwave). Add some whipped cream and enjoy this treat that seems like it should be bad for you, but is totally healthy!
