Happy Halloween Trick or Treats

A collection of spooktacular sweet treats with no playing a trick on your scale with these are no sugar added, protein packed. I'll be making these on days other than Halloween.

Started my All Hallows' Eve with this to die for (sorry couldn't resist) protein shake.

Shelly's Dead Man's Party Protein Shake

8 oz. Milk (I used Soy Milk, any will do)
1 packet Big Train Fit Frappe Vanilla Protein Drink Mix
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Davinci Toasted Marshmallow Syrup
a few cubes of ice

Whiz on high in a blender. Top with No Sugar Added Homemade Whipped Cream, a sprinkle of unsweetened cocoa (aka dirt)

Shelly's Homemade No Sugar Added Toasted Marshmallow Whipped Cream

1 cup Whipping Cream
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Toasted Marshmallow Syrup (any flavor will do) 

Whisk till well combined. Fill whipping cream to the fill line of the whipper. Screw on the top. Insert the CO2 cartridge till it empties, unscrew that. Put the nozzle on, shake a few times and squirt away. It makes a ton, store it in the fridge for up to 10 days just give it another few shakes before squirting.

Shelly's Caramel Apple Ricotta Pancakes

1/2 cup Ricotta Cheese
1 Egg, beaten
1 teaspoon Apple Pie Spice
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (SF Vanilla, Caramel, or Brown Sugar Cinnamon)
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix

1/2 an Apple, chopped fine

Mix all ingredients together. I use whole milk ricotta, if you use part skim, drain first. Spray pan with non-stick spray. Cook on low till golden, flip, pat flat, cook till done. Serve each pancake with a drizzle of warm Sugar Free Caramel Sauce, squirt of No Sugar Added Whipped Cream and a SF Gummy Worm of course, a few added calories but worth the fun seriously though these are awesome with nothing on them hot or cold. Makes 8 pancakes.

These can be frozen between slices of wax paper or kept in the fridge a day or 2 and reheated (nuke 25 seconds) for breakfast during the week. Leftovers usually get some SF jam, almond or peanut butter smeared on them, wrapped in foil and they become a great breakfast-on-the-go.
