Pumpkin Pie dip! (stolen) November 13, 2014

You may have seen this recipe from The happy Homemaker at http://www.thehappyhomemaker.com. I did modify it a bit to make it just a wee bit on the healthier side of already healthy and have added more protein for the fitness people alike. It’s a fantastic dip and I give this wonderful blogger all the credit. It tastes exactly like pumpkin pie filling!

(I stole her picture too…)pumpkin-pie-dip-and-cinnamon-sugar-chips-recipeI knew I did not want to use this as a dip. 1.) because I don’t have/attend parties that I need dip & 2.) I will eat the entire bowl if I do make a dip and don’t attend a party. In this case I use it as a spread on my peanut butter quesadilla in the morning or I top it on oatmeal, my yogurt or coconut flour breakfast bowl!

I’m not going to include the recipe for the chips, but she has it on her website. You can also find her version of the dip there too.  Here, though, is MY version of the pumpkin dip.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 a 15oz can of Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2 Cup low fat greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (preferably a vanilla variety. I used Birthday cake)
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Mix all these ingredients together well and you have your dip. Refrigerate for the respective time that you would normally refrigerate these ingredients (ie. I’ve had mine about a week and it is still kicking…I think)

If the entire bowl can serve 10, it is only 40 calories a serving, 0g of fat, 6g of sugar and 3g of protein.

 

Enjoy~!
