Who’s ready for dessert? The past 2 weeks I’ve shared a couple of recipes created by the wonderful Cassie Green (Roasted Winter Squash and Autumnal Slaw )! Cassie is an amazing health coach and one of the services she offers is cooking classes. With Thanksgiving coming up, she was sweet enough to come over and share a few healthy sides that I could prepare for Thanksgiving, but even when you’re on the healthy eating plan, you still want dessert!
Healthy desserts can be tough, especially when you’re trying to go with traditional desserts, but Cassie made this pumpkin pie and it was delish. Don’t let the fact that it’s free of grain, dairy and refined sugar (aka Paleo friendly) fool you. It was yummy! You can serve this at Thanksgiving and not feel like you’re depriving yourself of the good stuff!
