It’s that time of year again—pumpkin season! Everywhere you look, there’s a pumpkin temptation lurking around the corner. Whether it’s pumpkin baked goods or a fancy coffee concoction, the one thing these treats have in common is their high calorie and fat content.
But there’s no reason to “squash” your pumpkin cravings if you’re watching your weight. Here’s a low-carb, vegan and delicious pumpkin dessert recipe that’s big on taste and low on calories.
Dessert for breakfast? With a biscuit or cake-like crust and fresh, sweet fruit piled on top—it’s not a terrible way to start the day! I like to switch things up by making cobbler sometimes or a crumble when a quick treat is needed. My crumble recipe is so easy, I make it nightly when there’s a lot of fruit in the house to use up.
Good thing bananas come in a bunch. You’ll be happy you have a few on hand after trying this quick, nutritious pudding! Simply blend a banana with a cup of coconut milk, a scoop of chia seeds and some cinnamon, chill for about an hour, and you’ve got the perfect single-serving dessert–sweet, creamy and (bonus!) packed with potassium, protein and omega-3s.
Before peeling back the foil seal on another tiny plastic tub of pudding, give this recipe a try. This creamy, chocolaty dessert is not only divine, it’s packed with superfood nutrition from organic cocoa, raw cacao nibs and chia seeds. A whirl in the blender and a quick chill in the fridge are all it takes to transform five simple ingredients into a dessert that’s always OK to splurge on!
Moist, rich chocolate cake sandwiching a layer of sweet, fluffy filling—what’s not to love about good, old-fashioned whoopie pies? These oversized soft cookies get their fun name from the shout-out Amish farmers would hoot after finding one tucked into their lunch pail (“Whoopie!”). I worked with my mother’s classic recipe to create a vegan version that’s just as delightful but can be enjoyed by anyone, even those who don’t eat dairy foods.
Who says there isn’t room in the Paleoista Lifestyle for a treat every now and then? These decadent holiday truffles are perfect for this special time of year and make a lovely parting gift to hand out to guests at the end of a Paleo feast.
