Kabocha Dessert BowlNov 16, 2019
This has been my new go-to favorite dessert these days (I love it almost as much as my protein ice-cream 😅). The sweetness from the caramelized kabocha paired with the tangy yogurt is seriously the BEST combo! It's also super versatile so you can switch up the flavors and never get bored. I usually change up the different flavors of protein powder I used and add different toppings depending on my mood. Try it out and let me know what you think! 😊
