If someone told me I could satisfy a craving for pumpkin pie for under 200 calories using no artificial ingredients I would say “sign me up!” Well, consider yourself signed up as well.
There are a few reasons this makes the perfect snack or dessert:
1) Packed with Protein:
Greek style yogurt strains out the whey which results in a higher amount of protein per serving than traditional yogurt.
2) Antioxidant Spices:
Spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves are loaded in antioxidants. A diet rich in spices reduce the body’s negative responses to high-fat meals, according to Penn State researchers.
3) Vitamin Packed Pumpkin:
A half cup serving of pure pumpkin has only 41 calories and is loaded in vitamins and fiber. Just one serving meets 300% of your daily requirement for Vitamin A.
Your spoon is waiting.
