If you dig pumpkin pie, you'll love this little nutrient-dense, antioxidant-rich, protein-packed treat! It's funny, but whenever someone sees this little concoction that I make, they say that it looks disgusting, but when they try it, they always love it. I know it's a little "out there", but give it a shot... it tastes like pumpkin pie filling, but tastier, and better for you!two 15-oz cans of pure 100% pumpkin pack
one 15-oz container of ricotta cheese (grass-fed if you can find it)
one 32-oz container of vanilla yogurt
one scoop (about 25 grams) of vanilla protein powder with no artificial sweeteners
3/4 cup raisins or currants
3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/4 cup chia seed and/or hemp seed
1/4 cup rice bran
cinnamon to season to taste (1/2 to 1 tsp works well)
a little stevia (natural non-caloric sweetener) -- only if it needs a little more sweetness for your taste
This recipe makes 5-6 servings (I like to split into 5-6 containers to have a quick healthy mid-meal each day):
Mix everything together in a huge bowl and split into 5-6 containers (approx 16 oz containers work well), and you've got a quick healthy meal for each weekday. Adjust the quantities of the ingredients if you want less calories or more calories per meal.
Approx. macronutrient breakdown per serving:
30 g. prot; 50 g. carbs; 10 g. fiber; 18 g. fat; 450 cals
This would be a pretty full meal for smaller females, so adjust the quantities a little bit lower. For bigger guys, this meal size should be fairly satisfying.
