Pumpkin Tofu Mousse

Tofu Mousse. Should those two words really be used in the same sentence? Surprisingly, yes! They actually should be used together! And why not add Pumpkin into the mix?!

I’ve been seeing the whole craze over tofu mousse lately, and I was a little hesitant about it at first. But I figured what have I got to lose? The next step was getting un-lazy (is that a word? :P) enough to actually make it! The other day I walked past some silken tofu in the store and I remembered the tofu mousse, so I went ahead and grabbed some!

The other day I finally decided that I was going to make some for breakfast before my workout. I was looking on both Pinterest and Instagram for the perfect recipe, but I didn’t find anything that I was specifically looking for at the time, so I decided to make my own recipe! Although I am now eager to try out all sorts of recipes for the glorious tofu mousse!

So, if you like pumpkin and if you like mousse, this recipe with surely not disappoint!

Pumpkin Spice Proats

If you didn’t already know, I live in Minnesota. That being said, you should immediately infer from that that the weather here is dumb and unpredictable. 😛 For the past few days have been perfect sunny and 70s days. But then today came along. Rainy, cloudy, and getting cooler by the hour. It is currently dreary and 54 degrees. Not exactly what I want this time of year. But hey, you win some, you lose some.

Today’s weather being what it is, I came straight back to my dorm after classes and put on some comfy sweats and a baggy sweatshirt. I am now cuddled up on my futon watching Harry Potter, and just woke up from a quick, refreshing nap. 🙂 I decided to post my recipe for Pumpkin Spice Proats now because what’s better than warm oatmeal on a cool/cold day?!

I made these oats a couple weeks ago to fuel up for the day. For this recipe, you do need pumpkin spice flavored protein powder, but if you’re not too worried about your oats being pumpkin flavored you can use whatever flavor protein powder your heart desires!

Chocolate Brownie Protein Pudding

Hey everyone! I feel like my posts are gradually getting more seldom. But in my defense I have been pretty busy the past couple weeks! Anyway, I’m here to post yet another one of my delicious creations! This time it’s Chocolate Brownie Protein Pudding!

I actually made this a couple weeks ago, but am only just now getting to posting it on here! Oh well, better late than never! This pudding is very versatile flavor-wise because the Chocolate Brownie flavor simply comes from the Chocolate Brownie protein powder I used. I also tried this recipe using Pumpkin Spice protein powder. I made the latter flavor first and the next day I tried it with the Chocolate Brownie protein powder, which I prefer over the Pumpkin Spice for this particular recipe! The above picture is the Chocolate version and the picture below is Pumpkin Spice.
