Healthy Maple Pumpkin Pie Mousse Pudding (high protein, vegan) - Desserts with Benefits

Mousses and puddings are supposed to be light and creamy desserts, the type of sweets that won’t leave you feeling full and heavy like if you were to eat a dense slice of cake or a brownie (or two).  But despite the fluffy and airy texture of mousses and puddings, they aren’t healthy and sure won’t leave you feeling “light” on the scale.  Typical mousses contain a ton of heavy cream, sugar and egg yolks.  Regular puddings include much of the same — heavy cream, half-and-half, sugar and eggs.

No thanks!

So I made a healthier mousse… well, it’s between a mousse and a pudding.  This Healthy Maple Pumpkin Pie Mousse Pudding is both sweet and creamy, but slightly on the dense side since you don’t have to whip eggs for 10+ minutes.  The low glycemic sweeteners won’t give you a sugar-rush and sugar-crash, the amount of fiber will give you that “full” sensation, and the high protein content will keep you satisfied after one serving rather than the entire batch!

Yield: 4-5 servings

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, coconut milk, maple syrup, molasses and maple flavor.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the soy protein, sucanat, flax, truvia, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. Slowly add the dry to the wet while whisking (when all is mixed in, it should look like a thick orange cake batter)
  4. Pour into serving cups, cover and refrigerate for about ~4 hours (should be thick/firm)

Notes

**The soy protein powder here absorbs A LOT of liquid, so whey/casein/egg protein won't be a good substitute, and it's not an ingredient you can omit without making some other adjustments. You might be able to replace the soy protein with brown rice protein powder, since they both absorb quite a bit of liquid, but I haven't tried it before.

This recipe is: high fiber, high protein, gluten free, eggless and vegan!
