Shelly's Pumpkin Protein Souffle
2 Tablespoons Raisins/Dried Cranberries
2 Tablespoons Walnuts
1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk
1/2 cup Unsweetened Coconut, toasted
3 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla)
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix, dry (I use this)
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 cup canned Pumpkin Puree, not pie filling
1/4 teaspoon (+ a dash for tops) Nutmeg
Topping: Sugar Free Maple Syrup and Sugar Free Whipped Cream
Sprinkle fruit and nuts into bottom of each ramekin. Mix all remaining ingredients in a blender till smooth. Pour mixture into 4/4-oz ramekins or custard cups. Here's what I use.
If you don't have a groovy set up like this. Just place the ramekins in a large roasting pan. Place pan on oven rack and pour enough very hot water to come halfway up sides of ramekins. Sprinkle top of each souffle with additional nutmeg. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until set, knife inserted comes out clean.
Let sit 5 minutes in water bath. Remove from bath. Serve chilled with SF maple syrup and SF whipped cream on top.
This would be so perfect for Halloween or Thanksgiving morning. Maybe a Fall Brunch with some Chicken Apple Sausage or Maple Bacon, some Mixed Berries or a Berry Smoothie.
Highlights of the weekend:
* Hung out with my friend Jeremy on Friday. I don't think I mentioned this but we were both Student Body Presidents of our college... he was outgoing and I was incoming. Anyway we did the nostalgia tour and went back to our old campus and checked out the changes. It had been 8 years I think since I was there. After... we hit the beach for a walk. So a perfect start to the weekend. Sorry no pics. Jeremy: Remind me to take a picture of us next time we hang out. We need an updated one.
* Saturday I shopped till I dropped. I was on a mission to get my Halloween costume stuff but I was very unsuccessful. I swear it's such a simple costume you'd think it would be easy to find. I've got a couple of leads to check today. Wish me luck! Because my Indiana Jones costume from last year is 6 sizes too big now!
* So I keep hearing from people coming to Philly. I'm so excited. If you are on this end of the earth. The LA event is OH's 10 year anniversary event so it should be a blast. Think about spending Halloween with me. Here's the details and a way to get $$$ off your tix.
