Pumpkin Spice Recipes - Sugar Free Low Carb Protein Packed

Every year it seems a new pumpkin spice product is introduced but along with the yummy fall flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg those creations usually come with a lot of sugar too. Here's some of my favorite weight loss surgery friendly (sugar free, low carb and protein packed) ways to get in on all the pumpkin spice fun and still keep your health and fitness goals.

Shelly's Homemade No Sugar Added Whipped Cream

1 cup Whipping Cream

Whisk till well combined. Every batch I make a new flavor: Sugar Free Vanilla, Sugar Free Coconut, Sugar Free Almond, if you want pink cream add Sugar Free Raspberry. 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. Great on berries, protein shakes and smoothies, crepes, pancakes, protein cake

To make Chocolate Whipped Cream: add 2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder to recipe above before pouring into the whipper.

Do you have a chart on how many calories each of your delicious recipes have?

Hi Carolina, Thank you! Hope you enjoy them. Here's how you find the nutritional info on my recipes (or anyone elses because products like protein powders, meat fat content, brands vary) google recipe calculator (sparkpeople has a great one that I use), enter your ingredients and then take the total you get and divide it by # of servings which will vary greatly too (post- weight loss surgery versus non-ops portion sizes) Hope that helps.
