Whenever a recipe that is labeled “healthy” many assume that it won’t taste good. At work when I sample out a new recipe or a new product I always get different reactions when I label things “healthy”. Try this new “healthy (insert recipe name)” – some run over and are intrigue and some scrunch up their noses and walk away.
Let me tell you about this “healthy” recipe I made today. The ingredients and nutrition facts of this recipe scream healthy, but the flavors and richness scream dessert! If you LOVE pumpkin pie, you’re going to LOVE this recipe.
Yesterday, on instagram I posted the picture below asking “Can you guess what I’m making?”

Pumpkin pie chia pudding was actually my original idea but I changed it to Pumpkin Pie Chia Mousse because the cottage cheese whipped in with the rest of the ingredients created a smooth fluffy texture just like regular mousse.

You can enjoy this as a breakfast, snack, or dessert! I sprinkled a little cinnamon granola and a few cranberries on top.

  • 3/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 1.5 tbsp pumpkin pie spice

Make sure to use pure pumpkin puree which is simply pumpkin. Don’t be fooled and purchase pumpkin pie puree which is loaded with added sugars.

  1. Thus sounds and looks delicious! All healthy ingredients, but because the maple syrup holds SUCH a strong flavour it’s enough to make it all taste so sweet and delicious, what a great idea adding chia seeds 😀 If I’d had some pumpkin here, I’d have a bash at it at this very moment as I just got some maple syrup the other day, mmm! x
