SAI’S VEGAN CHOCOLATE PUMPKIN BONBON RECIPE
Meet Sai De Silva, mother of two, lifestyle blogger and New York girl to her core. Her popular blog, Scout The City began as a fun way to document her daughter’s street style and evolved into a digital destination for all things family, fashion and beauty. So how does this busy mama-on-the-go stay energized? We like to think it has something to do with Tejari, her protein powder of choice.
In fact, Sai was such a big fan of Tejari protein powders, that we teamed up with her to create a Tejari x Scout The City exclusive protein powder flavor: Organic pumpkin spice! The formula we came up with uses dates as a natural sweetener and features Sai’s favorite adaptogen: Ashwagandha! You’ll also find these ingredients:
- Organic pumpkin
- Organic Medjool dates
- Organic non-GMO pea protein
- Organic vanilla beans
- Organic ashwagandha root
- Organic cinnamon
- Organic turmeric
- Organic nutmeg
Looking for a creative way to use our new organic pumpkin spice protein? Sai’s got you covered with these fall-themed vegan chocolate pumpkin bonbons—just in time for a healthy indulgence this Halloween.
