Recipe Notes

To make this SP protein + veg + fruit,  you could serve with a sliced orange and green onion salad.

Macros listed are for SP version.

*This is based on the Trim Healthy Mama stevia brand that I personally use and linked to in the recipe which is quite concentrated. Stevia potency really varies from brand to brand so you may need to adjust the level of stevia to more or less depending on which one you use.
