Here's a delicious Halloween treat!

It's Halloween next week so we thought we'd help you out with a festive and protein-packed recipe idea.

This Pumpkin Pie tastes just like its traditional counterpart, but it's packed with protein, healthy fats and contains no refined sugar.

We think Clean Treats has really hit the nail on the head with this spiced sweet. What do you think?
