How can you make your kids eat carrots and tofu for dessert, with very little sugar?

I tried this smoothie recipe, with a few modifications (see below) but could not get used to the texture soooo... I added in a few eggs, poured into frozen tart shells, and popped these babies in my toaster oven.

Tadam!



Here's what I used:
4-5 chunks frozen mango
2 large carrots, grated
1/2 (8 ounce) package extra firm tofu
2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
2 tablespoons molasses
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup skim milk

3 eggs
12 frozen tart shells
Bake at 375F.

The texture and taste turned out perfect!

Okay, so pie crust is not very healthy (esp. commercial) but you could always make a healthier crust with whole wheat flour or nut-based, but the practicality of the frozen tart shells is awesome, only a blender jar to wash up.

Not sure you could do this with any smoothie recipe - but you could always try (if you do, I'd love to know the results)!

Enjoy Wink

Is this similar to a pumpkin pie?  It sounds pretty good.

It tastes just like pumpkin pie, the texture is the same as well.
