Miracle Noodle Ambassador, Teri, just loves her protein! She also loves the flavors of fall! Pumpkin! Cinnamon! Nutmeg! Oh my! Here is her take on an dessert in a festive apple carved as a cauldron with a witches broom, delicious apple cinnamon Miracle Rice "bubbles" and creepy edible eyeballs! Teri used Miracle Rice for a fun texture, extra fiber and flavor with apple cinnamon from an herbal tea infusion. She colored our rice with natural food coloring to make it spooky! Happy Halloween!

"I like to use herbal tea infusions as a calorie free way to flavor my shirataki noodles. The longer you allow the noodles//rice to sit in the liquid, the stronger the flavor profile. Add depth and dimension to your meals using this method! Have fun and experiment with different flavor profiles! You will want to make your infusion ahead of time, the night before."
