Pumpkin Protein Party Puddin’!


This has gotta be the EASIEST thing you’ll ever make!  It will be a crowd and kid-pleasing treat too.  I have taken this to parties as a festive, Fall dip and brought along organic apple slices and graham crackers – YUM!

Also, I have made this as a mid-afternoon snack/ dessert (guilt-free, HELLO) and I count it as a serving of starch, protein and healthy fat.

There are so many variations of this – have fun experimenting and let me know how you like it and/or how you have altered it to make it even more fun.

Best in health,


Makes two servings or will feed about 8-10 people if you take it to a small gathering. 


  • 1 small can of organic pumpkin (make sure you do not accidentally buy pumpkin pie filling – just get the plain pumpkin)
  • 2 Tablespoons of your favorite healthy organic oil (I like Barleans Flaxseed oil or MCT oil)
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite organic protein powder (I recommend Vanilla, Eggnog or Pumpkin flavored Isagenix undenatured whey protein powder)
    • Optional:   add crushed walnuts or pecans for a perfect texture (make sure your guests do not have nut allergies.  If you are not sure, try some raisins, chia seeds, or hemp seeds)


  • Mix the Pumpkin, Protein Powder, and Oil in a bowl until smooth and creamy
  • Chill in the fridge until you are ready to serve and enjoy
  • Stir in your nuts, raisins or seeds (again, only an option).
  • Dash on some pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
  • Enjoy as a pudding or as a dip with apples or a few gram crackers

Other options:

  • Instead of canned pumpkin, try butternut squash!
  • I have never tried it, but if you’re feeling daring, mix in chocolate protein powder, dark coco powder and a little monkfruit or Swerve to taste – Hmmmm, chocolate pumpkin pudding?  Is it any good – let me know!
