Healthy Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Dip (2 Ways)
“Pumpkin Pie” and “Cheesecake” certainly don’t come to mind when you are thinking of a healthy snack, but sure enough, this sweet, thick, rich and creamy Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Dip is… secretly good for you!
Oh yes. No full-fat cream cheese, no butter, no eggs and no refined powdered sugar here. This guilt-free recipe is no-bake, low-calorie, low-fat, sugar-free and high-protein (but you’d never know it)
I decided to compare the nutrition label of this Healthy Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Dip to a typical version I found online. The typical recipe’s nutrition label is on the left, the Desserts with Benefits nutrition label is on the right. You will not BELIEVE the difference:

This recipe requires only 5 ingredients and is a breeze to make. Here is the nutrition label comparison using the version #2 recipe:
