Protein Pumpkin Pie
What do you think of when you think of Thanksgiving dinner....turkey, sweet potatoes, stuffing....PUMPKIN PIE! With my sweet tooth I look for "healthified" desserts.
Try this for your feast...Protein Pumpkin Pie!
I will post pics after I make it for our dinner.
Ingredients: (makes 2 pies)

2 pkg jello fat and sugar free vanilla instant pudding
2 scoops vanilla or plain protein powder (I use EAS)
