SANE Peanut Butter Pie. Go Ahead. Eat Dessert First.


Many members of SANE Community have shared all sorts of delicious ways to enjoy plain Greek yogurt. One way that I recently discovered involves using plain Greek yogurt to make what tastes like the filling of a peanut butter pie. The neat thing is that while this mixture can be put into a SANE pie crust, if you enjoy it right out of the bowl, it’s 44% protein, 42% healthy fats, and 14% carbohydrate. To put that in perspective, eggs are 29% protein, tofu is 37% protein, and salmon is 48% protein. That peanut butter pie sounds more like a SANE meal than a dessert.

Of course it’s not going to be as good as actual peanut butter pie filling, but getting as close as this gets while staying SANE makes me happy 🙂

Topping

  • Non-fat plain Greek yogurt + non-caloric sweetener of your choice

 

Filling

  • 2 cups non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup + a tablespoon of natural peanut butter
  • What would be equivalent to approximately 2 tablespoons of sugar worth of the non-caloric sweetener of your choice (start with less and add more according to your desired level of sweetness)
  • 3 scoops vanilla whey protein isolate
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

 

Crust

  • Grain-Free Honey Graham Cracker Pie Crust I recommend leaving out the honey

Enjoy!
