Most holiday desserts are loaded with many calories and so much sugar that you’ll be walking away from the table feeling stuffed—and not in a good way. Instead, finish off a festive meal with this healthy, protein-packed riff on ye olde pumpkin pie. If serving this to a hungry crowd, simply double up on the ingredients


  • 2 cups plain 2% Greek or Skyr yogurt
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder
  • 2 tbsp chocolate nut butter, such as Justin’s or Nuttzo
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tsp orange zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp salt


  1. In a blender, blend together all ingredients. Chill mixture for at least 2 hours.
  2. To serve, place pudding in serving bowls and garnish as you like.
