Why the surprise? Well, there are several reasons. First, one of the ingredients used is
typically not part of a traditional pie recipe. Second, unlike many desserts this one is actually balanced with nutrients for better hormone health (check the nutrient profile below).
Third, what you can't see on the nutrient profile is the phytonutrient (plant) properties, like anthocyanins (responsible for better blood flow - antioxidant, anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, blood sugar regulator...). Fourth, it is versatile and can be used as a smoothie, pudding, or frozen treat/dessert - basically, whatever you like! Finally, it's delicious! It is taste tester approved, but most importantly, it's Dietitian approved!
