- 3 Tbsp chia seeds
- Blend all ingredients (apart from chia seeds) until smooth and creamy.

OMG – This totally tastes like pumpkin pie filling. No joke. My kids loved this for breakfast, and I finished it off.
Doesn’t it? Such a yummy alternative and you could totally eat pumpkin pie everyday with this recipe. Our fav is topped with some ‘crumble’ and coconut whipped cream!
Watching my sugar intake, want to give this a try, but the grams of sugar is “yikes”.
Combining protein with sugar is better than just alone, however what would you suggest in this case….Avoid or indulge?
Thanks so much
Hi Janine, yes, between pumpkin puree, dates and honey there is a lot of sugar but most of it is natural sugar in its whole-food form. Dates tend to be quite high in sugar but they are wrapped up in fiber and plenty of beneficial minerals. However, you can remove the dates and honey and replace with monkfruit or stevia (sweeten to taste) to reduce the sugar intake drastically.
