Carrie Underwood's-Pumpkin Chocolate Pudding
Did you know I love a good sale? Pumpkin ( a brand name) was on sale for 89 cents a can! Think I could pass that by? No way!
Now I'm stocked up on pumpkin. I was flipping through my library issue of People magazine and saw this recipe.
Carrie Underwood supposedly craved this pudding throughout her pregnancy. She shared a few recipes in the 12/7/15 issue and I wanted to give it a try. I adapted it slightly.
2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup vanilla almond milk
1 15 ounce can pumpkin puree
2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp caramel extract ( my addition)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon ( used Saigon )
1/4 cup chocolate protein powder ( didn't use)
In a medium size bowl add cocoa
Add the almond milk; whisk until thoroughly blended
Add pumpkin puree and whisk until smooth
Whisk in maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and caramel until blended
Spoon into serving dishes
Serve immediately or cover and chill up to one day.
Makes 5 (1/2) cup servings
