Pumpkin Protein Pudding

Pumpkin Protein Pudding ImageI honestly don’t know if the following recipe can be classified as a legitimate “pudding”, but this is my website and so I’m going to call it pudding nonetheless.

This is a recipe I’ve been meaning to share with you for quite some time, and since Thanksgiving is just a few days away and everyone will have a surplus of pumpkin, I figured now or never.

I usually enjoy this as a “dessert” after my post workout meal. So without further ado, here is a pumpkin protein pudding recipe.

Note –Unfortunately I can’t tell you exactly how much of each ingredient to use because I never measure. But I will provide my best educated guess.


  • 1 cup cottage cheese (the brand I buy contains only skim milk, cream and salt)
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • Half teaspoon cinnamon (I prefer Saigon, and I use a lot)
  • 3/4 scoop vanilla protein powder (by far the best tasting vanilla protein powder I have used is Myofusion)

Optional Ingredients

  • Pumpkin spice – I haven’t used this yet, but I will try it soon to see if it gives the pudding more of a “pumpkin pie” flavor
  • Walnuts or pecans – sometimes I’ll add a handful of nuts to give the pudding more flavor, consistency, and crunch

Just put the cottage cheese, pumpkin, cinnamon and protein powder (and any of the optional ingredients) in a bowl. Mix until it is thoroughly combined. You can also blend the pudding (before adding the nuts, if you choose to do so) with a hand mixer to give it a smoother consistency. I do this sometimes, but I’m usually too impatient.

Once you have it all mixed up, I think you know what to do from there.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
