Healthy Butterscotch Mousse Pudding

My family devoured that Maple Pumpkin Pie Mousse Pudding a few weeks back, and after hearing comments (or hints?) here and there about it, I knew I needed to make it again.  Don’t tell my family, but I am secretly reserving my canned pumpkin for when my next pumpkin withdrawal symptom strikes.  Or when I feel like I need some more vitamin A…  ;)

Healthy Butterscotch Mousse Pudding
Butterscotch Pudding is a popular dessert that desperately needed some healthifying, so I decided this would be a great flavor to try out after the Pumpkin Pudding.  Once again, my family loved it.  The texture is firm like a mousse, yet smooth like a pudding.  It tastes incredibly rich and satisfying, it’s hard to believe that what you are eating actually has some health benefits!

Yield: 5 servings

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, maple syrup, molasses and extracts.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the protein powder, sucanat, flax and truvia.
  3. Slowly whisk the dry into the wet. Pour into serving bowls, cover and refrigerate for ~4+ hours and serve (the longer it's refrigerated, the firmer it will be)

Notes

*You can try using other protein powders, but I have not tried it. Note that the linked soy protein absorbs a lot of water, similar to coconut flour and brown rice protein powder

Feel free to add 1-2 tsp of scotch to the recipe!

This recipe is: no bake, eggless, high protein, gluten free, vegan!

Healthy Butterscotch Mousse Pudding
This healthified Butterscotch Pudding is much better than those unhealthy storebought types in the little plastic tubs.  To show you the difference, I compared the nutrition label of my recipe to the nutrition label of a typical butterscotch pudding recipe.  The original recipe‘s nutrition label is on the left,  my recipe’s nutrition label is on the right:

Can you believe the difference??
My recipe has:
  • 270 less calories
  • 23g less fat (and 14g less of the unhealthy saturated fat)
  • 18g less sugar
  • fiber and protein
  • NO cholesterol
Amazing!  And you would never suspect that this recipe is packed with protein and free of refined sugar, butter and eggs.  If you are craving for something rich and sweet and packed with butterscotch flavor, this mousse/pudding is it!
