Strawberries and Cream Protein Pie

Strawberries and Cream Protein Pie

Here in Chicago the weather has been up and down. Today for example, the temperature was 54 degrees and tonight we are going to be getting 1-3 inches of snow. Welcome to living in the great Midwest. Anyhow, the 5 minutes of warmer weather prompted me to start testing out Spring recipes. I decided on this delicious oat and flaxseed crusted Strawberries and Cream Protein pie. It is like a cross between cheesecake and custard pie.

Strawberries and Cream Pie Recipe

I’ve been working with an awesome protein and supplement company, Muscle Sport, creating recipes that incorporate their products, ┬áso I am using their vanilla protein in today’s recipe. You can use any protein that you prefer. There is a ton of protein in addition to a great complex carb source, oats. Fresh strawberries and almond milk give this pie a delicious flavor without being overly sweet. Spring will be in the air no matter where you live once you try this lovely pie!
