Hey Friends! As Thanksgiving approaches, we're all looking forward to indulging in delicious treats and hearty meals. However, why not give a healthier twist to your festive table this year? At The Roasted Purpose, we believe in celebrating traditions while keeping your health goals in check. That's why we've crafted a special Protein Pumpkin Pie recipe, perfect for the season and packed with nutritious goodness!
Pumpkin pie is a Thanksgiving staple, but we wanted to add our unique touch. Our recipe infuses the classic pumpkin pie with high-quality protein, making it not just a dessert, but a healthy supplement to your diet. Whether you're a fitness enthusiast, looking for healthier dessert options, or simply want to try something new, this pie is for you!
- 2 Large Whole Eggs
- 15 Ounces Pumpkin Puree - Can
- ½ Cup Lakanto Brown Monk Fruit Sweetener
- 2 Ounces Homemade Cashew Nut-milk (made with our Nutr machine)
- Pumpkin Pie Seasoning
- ¼ Cup KiteHill Greek Yogurt
- ½ Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 2 Scoops The Roasted Purpose Gourmet Protein Powder - Vanilla
- Chopped Pecans
- Preheat and Prepare: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F. While that’s warming up, coat your pie dish with avocado cooking spray to prevent sticking.
- Mix the Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine the eggs, pumpkin puree, monk fruit sweetener, nut-milk, pumpkin pie seasoning, Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, and The Roasted Purpose Gourmet Protein Powder. Whisk these together until you achieve a smooth consistency.
- Bake the Pie: Pour the mixture into the pie dish, smoothing out the top for an even bake. Sprinkle chopped pecans on top. Place it in the oven for 30 minutes at 350°F, then reduce the temperature to 300°F and continue baking for another 15-20 minutes.
- Cool and Serve: Let the pie cool before serving. This not only makes it easier to cut but also allows the flavors to meld beautifully.
Our Protein Pumpkin Pie isn't just delicious; it's a nutritional powerhouse. Packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats, it's a guilt-free indulgence. The protein helps in muscle repair and building, while the fiber from the pumpkin aids in digestion. Moreover, the use of monk fruit sweetener and homemade cashew milk keeps the calorie count low.
This Thanksgiving, bring a new tradition to your table with our Protein Pumpkin Pie. It’s a perfect example of how you can keep your health goals on track without missing out on the festive fun. Share this delectable, nutritious dessert with your family and friends, and let us know how much they loved it!
Happy Thanksgiving and happy baking!
