Pumpkin pie frosty!

I saw a recipe for pumpkin frosty and figured I could make one that is simply filling! The only thing not simply filling is the sugar free vanilla pudding mix but 1 tbsp is 0pp.

Pumpkin pie frosty

1c skim milk
1/4c 0% Greek yogurt which I used to make it creamy but you could also make it without
1/4c pure pumpkin
1/4-1/2 tsp pumkin pie spice I like it spicy and used 1/2 tsp
1 tbsp vanilla sf pudding mix
I used 8 ice cubes
Sweetener to taste. I used 2 because I like it sweet

If you want it thicker you can add more ice or a tbsp more pudding pie mix

Blend all! This is 1/2 a portion because I shared with the hubs :)

Green tea smoothie Simply Filling

Green tea smoothie Simply Filling

3/4c boiling water and either a green tea bag or a tsp of matcha green tea powder
If using a tea bag let sit 4 minutes or so and then remove. Let cool.
1 small banana cut into chunks
8 ice cubes
sweetener to taste I used 1 package because the banana was really ripe and sweet
1 small individual light vanilla yogurt
I like to add 1/4 tsp ginger which is optional gives it a big of a zing!

When the green tea has cooled add all to a bullet or blender.

Zucchini pizza Simply Filling plus 0pp if you use fat free cheese

This would be 100% simply filling if you use fat free cheese. I don't so I count 2pp for the cheese. I brushed a little olive on the zucchini before I grilled it because I need to get my oils in today. Don't know whether you'd have to do that.

Zucchini pizza 

Zucchini the bigger you choose the bigger the slices for the pizza simply filling
I sprinkled the slices with a little sea salt and pepper
1/8c pizza sauce the one I used is 0pp
5 slices Butterball Turkey Pepperoni 0pp
30g light cheese 2pp when you shred really fine this was a lot of cheese I could have used 15g
Jalapeno peppers 0pp
bell peppers simply filling
onion simply filling

This is a knife and fork kind of pizza :) You would have to like zucchini to enjoy this but it made a nice change.

I put the zucchini on my grill pan and cooked till browned. Topped with the pizza sauce and other toppings and put under the broiler for a few minutes or you could just baked them for 8 to 10 minutes. Let sit for a few minutes then enjoy.

Cheesy scalloped potatoes simply filling + 3pp

Cheesy scalloped potatoes Simply Filling plus 3pp

3 medium potatoes which I sliced with a mandolin to get them nice and thin but be careful with your fingers!
1/2 onion sliced thinly as well
1 cup fat free 1/2 & 1/2 or skim milk
salt and pepper and garlic powder sorry didn't measure :)
1 tbsp flour 1pp
1 tbsp becel reduced calorie pro-active margarine 1pp
Light cheddar cheese 2 oz 4pp
Light cheddar finely shredded save for on top 2pp

3 servings=3pp per serving

I sprayed non stick on a small pyrex dish  8x6"

In a small pan put the light margarine and the tbsp of flour and stir to mix and cook for a minute or two. Slowly add the fat free cream while stirring with a whisk continually. Keep stirring till all the cream is in the pot and it starts to bubble and thicken. Take off of the heat. Add in salt/pepper/garlic powder and 2 oz of the light cheese. Stir till melted.

Put a few spoonfuls on the bottom of the dish then layer 1/2 the potatoes and 1/2 the onion. Put 1/2 the remaining sauce on top and one again layer the rest of the potatoes and onion and finally put the last bit of sauce on top. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes depending on the thickness of the potato and your oven. I have occasionally popped them in the microwave to finish cooking when the rest of the dinner is nearly ready :) When done take out and evenly sprinkle the last ounce of light cheese. Pop  back into the oven to melt.

Berry whip!

This is one of my favorite desserts/snacks :) Don't let the ingredients fool you it tastes amazing and you can't taste the cottage cheese!

1/2c fat free cottage cheese
1/2c frozen fruit I chose cherries today
skim milk the amount depends on which fruit you use
1 packet of sweetener

Put all in a bullet and blend until all mixed. Keep scraping down the sides and add milk as you need it. I would start with maybe 1/8th of a cup.  Enjoy
