Protein Pumpkin Pudding

My husband told me the other day that some of the food I make looks really…um…different…but that it actually tastes really good! Today’s recipe is one of those dishes. It’s a quick, easy, and healthy lunch that I like to take to work with me. It’s basically a mix of cottage cheese, pumpkin, and a few other things–a yummy balance of great nutrition. I just throw in a granola bar and I’m good to go!

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

3/4 Cup Cottage Cheese (Note: 1 or 2% tastes sooo much better than fat free!)

3/4 Cup Canned Pumpkin (Not pumpkin pie mix!)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Sweetener, to taste (I usually add in some sugar free caramel or maple syrup)

Optional Add-ins: Raisins, chopped walnuts, fiber one cereal

Directions:

Mix the cottage cheese, pumpkin, cinnamon and sweetener, and then blend together (I use a hand-held immersible blender). Stir in raisins and walnuts, if using them. If you make this the night before you’re going to eat it, the raisins will get nice and soft and juicy! If you’re adding in the fiber one cereal, I’d add that about an hour before you want to eat it because I like the softer texture with it.

Stir it up, and enjoy!

Love, Hope, & Prayers,
