Pumpkin Breakfast Pudding

4 Jul

Why yes, yes it certainly is another pumpkin recipe. How after this post you may ask? I found myself a huge real “calabaza” in my food store, baked it, and the product was a whole lot of delicious pumpkin puree. Is it just me or is fresh pureed pumpkin so much more delicious than the canned stuff? I don’t even need sweetener for most of my pumpkin recipes when using fresh! And there is no way I could do that with canned pumpkin.

Back to how this was created. I woke up really wanting to use my fresh pumpkin in my breakfast, but wasn’t wanting anything hot like oatmeal or my pumpkin french toast. I knew I wanted some of my all natural, 4-ingredient cottage cheese as well, and that is when the wheels started turning.

I took out my nutribullet, measured out equal parts of pumpkin, cottage cheese, raw bran, and a couple other things, and I truly was surprised with the result. I did not think it was going to be that good. Boy was I wrong. I didn’t even need to add any sweetener!

When I had reached the bottom of my jar, it was a sad day. Just kidding, but I was wishing I had more of it to eat! This was a delicious and healthy way to start my morning. Pumpkin has so many nutritional benefits, and this was high in protein and fiber as well to keep that tummy satisfied!

-1/4 cup cottage cheese
-1/4 cup raw bran (can use oats if you don’t have)
-1 tsp vanilla extract

    Yum! Creative, high protein breakfast ‘treat’! What is raw bran?

      Hi Serena! It is a form of unprocessed wheat that is very high in fiber and a good addition to any cereals, yogurts, or baked goods!
