Carnation Evaporated Milk Giveaway

I recently had the honor of being asked to participate in a special campaign sponsored by Carnation Evaporated Milk and Divine Caroline.  Let me tell you that this is very timely, as I know right now, a lot (if not most) of you are stocking up on Carnation Evaporated Milk thanks to grocery store promotions and coupons currently available.  Therefore, I am very excited to be sharing this information, as well as providing  you with ideas and suggestions on how to use Carnation Evaporated milk.

What is Evaporated Milk?

If you didn’t know, evaporated milk is fresh milk that has undergone a special evaporation process to remove half of its water content.  This is why when you open a can of Carnation Evaporated Milk you will find its contents are creamier and richer than just plain milk.  In addition to this creamier consistency, the evaporation process has also concentrated the nutritional value of this milk.  A 1/2 cup of Carnation Evaporated Milk has twice the calcium and protein than a 1/2 cup of whole milk.  Plus, it has a third less of the fat that a 1/2 cup of half-and-half.

zucchinisoupCreamiest Soup Without the Guilt

I make the easiest and creamiest Zucchini Soup you can make. I shared that Zucchini recipe with you last year. Last year, for Thanksgiving, I adapted the recipe to use in season Butternut Squash. This recipe is very easy and GOOD for you. Add it to your holiday menu and I promise you everyone at your dinner table will be amazed when you tell them the recipe is virtually fat free:
Easy Butternut Squash Soup
In a large pot,add two tbs olive oil and a quarter onion diced. Cook until translucent. To this add 8 cups of cubed butternut squash and 4 cups of chicken broth. Bring to a simmer and let cook until the butternut squash is soft and cooked through. Turn this into puree in the food processor. Return this to the pot and add one can of fat free Carnation Evaporated Milk. This makes the soup “creamy” while being “waist” friendly. Add salt and pepper to taste and cooked until warm.

Save $0.50 on Carnation Evaporated Milk

You can save 50 cents on your next purchase of two cans of Carnation Evaporated Milk when you use the coupon found in the newspaper inserts from September 27th.  If you did not get the newspaper that day, you can still save 50 cents on two cans when you register with Nestle’s Very Best Baking website.  After you register for this website you will be able to access a printable coupon for 50 cents off your next purchase of two cans of Carnation Evaporated Milk.
