I had a craving for pumpkin pie this week. Haha! Makes perfect sense since it is Easter, right?
So I took a fellow Venus Coach, Coach Roberta AKA Ro's protein custard souffle recipe and tweaked it to what I had and my craving! Everyone has been raving about these protein custards she has been making too! So I had to check them out. The nutritional stats are IMPRESSIVE :) 21g protein in 145 cals. DANNNNG.
I am thinking this will be excellent for breakfast, snack, or dessert. YES!
