Top 5 Snack Hacks to Try With the Power Pie!
We’re all looking for easy ways to eat healthier, which is why we partnered with the legends over at MoonPie® to create the NEW Power Pie! It’s inspired by the marshmallow sandwich you grew up with, but with a unique twist for our fellow protein junkies. It has 14g of protein, is Non-GMO Verified, and uses wholesome all-natural ingredients. Now, this revolutionary treat is near-perfect on its own, but why not spice it up a bit? There are endless ways that you can take the Power Pie from incredible to unbelievable, these are just our top 5!
#1: Put It In The Microwave!
Yes, you heard us right. The Power Pie is amazing when you put it in the microwave for 8-10 seconds. This is an idea that we admittedly stole from the experts at MoonPie, who suggest this preparation of the original on their pouches. It works just as well for the Power Pie, and it takes it to a whole new level! The chocolate melts a bit and the marshmallow turns warm and deliciously gooey. Imagine if your favorite chocolate lava cake or s’more was filled with 14g of protein, it’s like that, but even better than you’d imagine. A warmed-up Power Pie is the perfect treat to curl up with and satisfy your sweet tooth, especially as we head into these colder winter months.
#2: Stick It In The Freezer!
In the same way that warming up the Power Pie changes the game, doing the exact opposite does as well! We all love our frozen desserts like ice cream or popsicles, but they often don’t provide the nutrition or satiation that we want from a mid-day snack. This snack hack is about to change all of that! Try sticking a Power Pie in the freezer for a few hours before digging in. It ends up tasting like the most decadent ice cream sandwich you’ve ever had. Be careful though, it does solidify so don’t try to bite in too aggressively no matter how eager you are!
#3: Top It Off!
Not only is the Power Pie the perfect healthy snack on its own, it’s also the perfect base for your own pie creations! You can add whatever flavor you want simply by topping the Power Pie with your topping of choice. Some of our favorite toppings for the Power Pie include sugar-free whipped cream, peanut butter, or fresh fruit. The best part about this is that you can choose healthy toppings that still maintain the wholesomeness of the original treat, but you can add variety to your heart's delight. This is the perfect way to satisfy specific cravings without losing track of your health goals.
#4: Dip It In Milk!
Okay, this one might be a little obvious, but you know we had to say it. The Power Pie goes perfectly with a glass of your favorite milk. Whole milk, soy milk, almond milk, we don’t judge. Whatever your milk of choice is, pour yourself a glass of it and get to dipping! Bonus points if you hold the pie in there juuuussst long enough for it to get a little soft and absorb the milk.
#5: Make an Ice Cream Sundae!
Banana Split who? The Power Pie is the perfect base for a healthy twist on a classic ice cream sundae. Instead of a cookie or brownie that you’d usually use, break up a Power Pie into a bowl and top it with your favorite ice cream. You can use low-cal ice cream if you’re really watching the healthiness, but even with regular ice cream, it adds a little bit more nutrition to an otherwise cheat-day-oriented event.
Adding Variety to Your Snack Routine
Not only is the Power Pie the universe’s most POWERFUL protein snack, but it’s also the most versatile. Who would have thought that one snack could have so many possibilities? You just have to use a little bit of creativity.
Variety is one of the most important aspects of a healthy diet. Eating the same thing every day can get boring and lead you off the track of healthy choices. While we feel confident that you’ll love the Power Pie enough to eat it every day, we also want you to embrace experimentation and switch things up a bit every now and then. It’s simple, you buy one snack, and you end up getting hundreds of different snack options depending on your preparation.
Now that’s what we call incredible value. But don’t take our word for it, try some of these snack hacks today with your own Power Pies!
