Team EM2WL would like to extend a warm welcome to our newest guest blogger, Andréa, from Andréa's Protein Cakery!   Today Andréa shares a high protein snack that will satisfy your sweet tooth!

Perfect for your Thanksgiving feast, a healthy, high-protein sweet potato pie!

To transform a traditional recipe into Sweet Potato Protein Pie, I made some simple recipe exchanges. Instead of using a traditional pie crust, I made one using almond butter and vanilla rice protein powder. It tastes great, and has the flaky crust texture you’d expect in a pie. And instead of sweetened evaporated milk in the filling, I mixed some vanilla whey protein powder with water. Easy! I left out the added sweetener here, but if you’d like a sweeter protein pie I suggest adding ¼ to ½ cup coconut sugar or date sugar.

With ingredients like these, you can enjoy Sweet Potato Protein Pie anytime!
