This holiday season, we here at Beautifully BellaFaith urge our readers to Be Carton Smart. What does being #CartonSmart mean? It means protecting our earth with smart decisions. These smart decisions will impact everyone for the greater good. One seemingly small decision can have a big difference, such as purchasing products in Tetra Pak cartons, which are designed for maximum efficiency and environmental friendliness.

I received a starter kit from Pacific Foods, including organic chicken stock, organic pumpkin puree and organic jellied cranberry sauce. I currently use Pacific Foods’ beef broth and vegetable broths on a frequent basis, and it makes soups taste SO much better.

Today, I prepared a delicious cinnamon pumpkin milkshake using Pacific Foods’ organic pumpkin puree. It was so simple to make and is now my go-to fall dessert.

Cinnamon Pumpkin Milkshake

Ingredients

  • 5 scoops of vanilla ice cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/16 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup of 2% milk (or whichever milk you prefer)
  • 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree

Directions

  1. Place all of the above ingredients into a blender.
  2. If your blender has a “liquify” option, press that for approximately 15-30 seconds. I like my milkshakes on the creamier side, but if you like yours chunky, just choose another setting or liquify for less time.
  3. Pour into glass of choice and enjoy! :)

• Recycleable and in fact result in 60% less landfill waste than cans
• Cartons are re-closable so you can use what you need and save the rest for later.

  1. I make Turkey Tortilla Soup like this:
    3 cans of Rotel, 2 cans Mexicorn, 2 can black beans drained, 1/2 pkg taco seasoning, 2 cups leftover shredded turkey & a carton of chicken broth
    This uses cartons AND leftover holiday turkey to save waste!

  2. I use cloth napkins to reduce waste -it also gives a formal feel to my dinner. We use washable dinner and service-ware and I love to used these cartons – they do taste fresher and I make multiple recipes so that nothing is wasted.My favorite for thanksgiving is the pumpkin puree in my pumpkin cheesecake recipe.

  3. Use left over turkey for sandwiches! I also buy cartons of chicken stocks for soup. that pumpkin milkshake looks so yummy! have to try!
