Healthy Maple Pumpkin Pie Mousse Pudding

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!

This delicious Healthy Maple Pumpkin Pie Mousse Pudding is made without the heavy cream, sugar, and eggs. Plus, the recipe is high protein and vegan too!

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!

Recipe Notes

**Soy protein powder absorbs A LOT of liquid. If you want to sub the soy protein, you can try casein protein powder or brown rice protein powder. I haven't tried subbing the protein powder here but feel free to try it out if you like!
