They add a little bit of sweetness to balance spicy main dishes. Use plantains that are fully ripe they should have heavy black spotting to a completely black skin. Try these bananas in place of potatoes with your meal, you’ll like it!”

Best Paloma Recipe – Tequila, Fresh Pink Grapefruit

Best Paloma Recipe – Tequila, Fresh Pink Grapefruit

The Worlds Best Paloma Recipe – The perfect combination of Tequila, fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice, and lime, salt-rimmed & topped with a little club soda. A Mexican vacation in a glass. This might be Mexico’s most popular tequila drink. This drink is traditionally made with Mexican grapefruit soda, but I think it’s too sweet so I started making this with fresh pink grapefruit juice, a little simple syrup, and club soda.

Amazing Low-Calorie Pumpkin Custard

Amazing Low-Calorie Pumpkin Custard

Decadent Low-Calorie Pumpkin Custard is the perfect low-calorie dessert for the holidays. Many of us look forward to having pumpkin pie once a year on Thanksgiving but we may not want all the extra calories. Give this recipe a try – you’ll get all the pumpkin pie goodness with 1/2 the calories.  If you want a lighter dessert, but still want all of the flavors of your traditional pumpkin pie, try making this simple pumpkin custard instead. This pumpkin custard is basically a pumpkin pie without the pie shell. In fact, pumpkin pie is a fairly healthy dessert option, and it is even healthier if you don’t use the pie shell, which is made mostly from butter. Enjoy pumpkin custard throughout the fall season, since pumpkins are in such ready supply you can easily use fresh pumpkin, or use canned puréed pumpkin if you are short on time or can’t find fresh pumpkin.
