Chocolate Protein Packed Pumpkin Pie

Introducing the best pumpkin pie recipe yet…chocolate protein-packed pumpkin pie recipe by Julie Morris.

As a card-carrying member of the pumpkin pie fan club, the challenge is real: how can you create an even better pumpkin pie? For this, I have two words: Chocolate Protein. While I use Amazing Grass Protein Superfood powder almost daily in my smoothies, their Rich Chocolate flavor is too delicious to be destined solely to the blender. Adding it to pumpkin pie makes each bite turn into a hybrid of classic pumpkin and chocolate mousse – in other words, totally irresistible. Plus, the fact that suddenly you have a fully natural pie made without refined sugar, no difficult to digest dairy, and instead packed with an additional 20 grams of plant-based protein and 2 full servings of vegetables (thanks to our Amazing Grass addition which includes power-greens like wheatgrass and spirulina!) … and you seriously have one award-winning kind of dessert.

And, let’s not forget, all foodie-enjoyment aside, you still have one additional reward yet to savor. The next time someone asks you where you get your protein, you can look them straight in the eye and officially answer: PIE.”


4-Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream

On those hot summer days, or at a delicious backyard BBQ, there’s nothing quite like a chilly bowl of ice cream to cool off and indulge a little! You could run to the store and pick up a tub of dairy-free ice cream, or you could grab 4 simple ingredients from your kitchen and blend up this protein packed, dairy-free chocolate ice cream.

So, let’s see if we can list all the great things about this recipe:

  1. It’s ice cream…
  2. It’s easily dairy-free with your favorite dairy-free milk
  3. There’s a total of 40g complete plant-based protein! You can thank the 2 scoops of our Protein Superfood for that.
  4. It’s naturally sweetened
  5. You can make it in a blender
  6. If you make it in the morning, it’ll be ready to enjoy by the afternoon!

One of our favorite ways to customize this recipe to cure those sweet tooth cravings is to add fresh berries – blueberries, chopped strawberries, even pineapple chunks – to the ice cream mixture before freezing.
