Recipe: Easy vegan pumpkin pie protein pudding

easy vegan pumpkin pie protein puddingSick of everything pumpkin yet? No? Me neither!

I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin spiced lattes, but love love love pumpkin pie. Although I indulged in a few pieces over Thanksgiving (and will again at Christmas), obviously pumpkin pie in all its variants isn’t a regular snack item on my weekly meal plan (because who’s got time to bake pumpkin pie/I can’t have dairy/store bought is yuck)… until now!

Here’s a super simple recipe for vegan pumpkin pie protein pudding. You only need three ingredients, and you don’t even need a blender to whip it up. I’ve been making this for my post-lunch treat lately and it’s so darn yummy. If you wanted to get really fancy, you could pan fry some oats, pecans and currants with a bit of coconut oil for a crunchy topping, or could even sprinkle your favourite granola cereal on top for more of that pumpkin pie taste.
