Pumpkin Protein Pudding or Fudge – Guest Post


4. October 2013 by swissfitchick

Hi There! Thanks so much to Lucie for letting me guest post while she is away. My name is Danielle and I am a nutrition and health coach who blogs at danielleprestejohn.com. I’ve been so lucky to connect with Lucie through the blogging world and absolutely adore her! If there’s one thing Lucie and I share it’s our love of summer. I know both of us can’t wait for the sunshine that comes in June and leaves us in September. In fact we both have dreams of packing up and moving to San Diego someday! In the meantime though, one thing that always helps me ease into the cooler weather of fall is my love of pumpkin. As soon as pumpkin coffee hits the shelves, I instantly get excited for the fall season. Not only is pumpkin delicious but it is also packed full of nutrients, which as a nutritionist, I love! This recipe works in two ways, you can make it a delicious pudding that works well either warm or cold, or you can freeze into protein packed fudge bites. Whatever you choose I know you’re going to love them!



  • 1-cup pumpkin
  • 60 grams vanilla protein powder of choice (about 3 scoops)
  • 2 tbs. natural almond or peanut butter
  • 1 tbs. raw honey
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ginger
  • ½ tsp. all spice
  • ½ tsp. cloves
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg


For the Pudding:

  1. In a mixing bowl combine all of your ingredients, starting with the pumpkin and ending with the spices.
  2. Once well-combined pour into small serving bowls and set in the refrigerator to chill.
  3. Enjoy cold as is or heat in a saucepan for warm pudding.

Makes 4 servings

For the Fudge:

  1. In a mixing bowl combine all of your ingredients, starting with the pumpkin and ending with the spices.
  2. Once well-combined pour into a well greased container and freeze.
  3. Freeze overnight or until bars are set.

Makes 16 servings


What’s your favorite season?

No filter. And no one ever tells me again bullshit like that CrossFit makes me look like a man. Left side, 1998 (19y), ~60kg, in an abusive relationship, fueled by a daily dangerous skinny drug cocktail which almost killed me and hours of cardio, no lifting and an oh so fucked up mindset. Right side, 19 years later today (39y), ~68kg (~8kg gainzzz!!). Recovered from 20 years of extreme disordered eating and drugs; and passionate about CrossFit. A healthy mind (pretty much at least 😏😉), a healthy body, freedom and a joy of life I had never experienced before. To be alive and healthy is a fucking miracle. I've always been a stubborn kid and I never half-assed things - contrary, I went and still go full-ass with everything I did and do - which also led me to extreme addictions. But it also allowed me to fight through suicidal thoughts and hurdles. Yet, if you want to overcome something so incredibly strong and stubborn like an Eating Disorder you have to be stronger and more stubborn and to want it with all your heart and to give everything you got. If you are willing to let go in favour of your health, then get your shit together, you can do it. It's possible, I'm the living proof. Trust your strength and never stop believing. And for fucks sake, no one ever goes trying to make me feel embarrassed about my muscles again. I'm not. I'm perfectly ok, just like everyone else. #nojudging #crossfit @crossfit #fightforit #muscles #health #trusttheprocess #believe #eatingdisorderrecovery #awareness #support #loveyourself #bodyimage #fullass #getshitdone #loveyourbody #recovery #addictivepersonality #drugs #overcoming #bulímia #anorexìa #sweatpink #fitfluential
