Did you know that October 26th is National Pumpkin Day? Although, based on what I’ve seen on pinterest, I’m pretty sure once October 1st hit, everyday has been National Pumpkin Day for many. I’ve definitely had fun playing with some pumpkin recipes this week so I have a couple for you today.
Pumpkin Protein Souffle with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Filling & Frosting
Adapted from Wish & Whimsy
2 egg whites
1 packet Perfect Fit Protein [or 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder]
1/4 cup pumpkin puree [not pumpkin pie filling; I use Libby’s]
1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk [I use Almond Breeze]
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
Filling & Topping
1 cinnamon cream cheese Laughing Cow wedge, divided*
1/2 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine all souffle ingredients in a bowl and stir until well combined. Pour into a greased ramekin. Cut your cream cheese wedge in half and place half of it in the middle of your souffle. It will sink a bit, so be careful as you transfer your souffle to the oven. Bake for 30 minutes.
While this is baking, prepare your frosting by heating the other half of the cream cheese wedge with the almond milk. Microwave for about 10 seconds just to warm everything up and to help it smooth out. Mix it together until smooth.
Once your souffle is finished baking, pour your frosting over top and enjoy!
*If you can’t find Laughing Cow Cinnamon Cream Cheese, you can sub 1 tbsp low fat cream cheese & 1 tsp cinnamon. But ask your grocery store to get this in stock immediately because it is just. that. good.
Yummm! Look at all of that delicious cream cheese pumpkiny goodness! You won’t believe the amazing stats on this..

This is the perfect post-workout breakfast packed with all of that protein! And because I just couldn’t get enough pumpkin, I have another tasty treat for you.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Greek Yogurt Dip
1/4 cup vanilla greek yogurt
1/8 cup pumpkin puree [not pumpkin pie filling; I use Libby’s]
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tbsp mini chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl and get ready to dip! I love slicing up apples to dip in this, but you can also double the recipe and eat it by itself as a great post-workout snack!
