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 spice
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.
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
I’m uploading a new Ask a Monican as we speak I write this. See ya in a bit!
