Be #CartonSmart

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carton Smart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

since I first saw them in November, I have been in love with these Tetra Pak cartons!  What a great way to package things that would normally be stored in bulky cans.  
Imagine how great your pantry would look if you replaced your cans with these!

Not only are the Tetra Pak cartons convenient, they are so great for the environment and the taste of the food!  Look at all these great benefits of these products!

We celebrated Thanksgiving in Florida this year.  We wouldn't even think about hauling all those heavy cans along on the two-day car ride, but these cartons were so light and packed so well!
We love to make a loaf of banana bread for breakfast during the trip down to Florida, so I decided to go with the season and switch it to pumpkin bread.
We took our usual banana bread recipe and substituted the pumpkin puree for the bananas.  I went with it because I know it's delicious and I didn't want to experiment when I had this awesome product to try, but I want to work with this recipe to make it a little healthier in the future.  Don't get me wrong, things taste awesome with butter, but I'm pretty sure I can get that stick of butter reduced a little and I want to try the tricks I learned from my Benefits of Flax post.
You can find that recipe here and look at how delicious it looks! Nevermind that I spent the first few hours of the trip resting my feet on the bread in the cramped car - it was still delicious flat!
The carton was great.  I loved not having to struggle with a can opener.  Just lift the sides, squeeze where the arrows indicate, fold the top back on the perforated line and tear (this may take some effort), and pour.
I can't wait to try use the other two products I received!  I can easily find something to do with the chicken stock, but I'm looking for a fun recipe to try with the Cranberry sauce.  You can go to and to see other products availible in these fantastic cartons!
