Pumpkin Protein Pudding Recipe

pumpkin spiced pudding recipe

I had half a can of pumpkin hanging out in my fridge and wanted to do something new with it. I have my usual breakfast round up of pumpkin oats and pumpkin pancakes, but I wanted an orange snack today.

So, I dreamed up this sweet pumpkin-y pudding.

Pumpkin Spiced Protein Pudding


  • 1/2 c canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 c milk of your choice
  • 3/4 scoop vanilla or vanilla chai protein powder
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • dash each: salt and pumpkin pie spiceIMG_7868 (800x533)

I’ve had this vanilla chai protein powder a company rep sent me for a while and this is the perfect recipe for it! But, you can use regular vanilla powder and add a little extra spice for flava. Note: I didn’t use the stevia because this protein powder is sweet enough. vanilla chai protein powder

I used A LOT of extra pumpkin pie spice by accident. I didn’t realize that jar doesn’t have a sprinkle top…

Directions: Mix up all the ingredients and refrigerate for 30 minutes to thicken. Or you can eat it right away topped with a sprinkle of slivered almonds Smile

    Were you using the TJ’s Pumpkin Spice by chance? I do that ALL of the time! I always think there is a top on that thing and end up over spicing my pumpkin flavored foods. That’s so deceiving!

    Im not gonna lie Monica, I thought for sure you were posting a picture of some cat food in a bowl for us to try to make but wanted to name it differently :) Ive never tried cold pumpkin…could you heat it up when you are done refrigerating it?

    Don’t listen to those guys, pumpkin pudding is amazing!
    I like adding pumpkin to sugar-free butterscotch jello pudding. Then you can use almond milk and it still comes out to a pudding-like consistency! (Normally jello pudding doesn’t set with non-dairy milk)
