Cranberry Protein Souffle

My special dessert for the Glee Finale tonight. If you are fellow Glee fan (aka Gleek) savor every minute of the tonight's show because the finale has to hold us till April. Yep, that's not a typo. No new episodes till April. Grrr.

I forgot how much I love these protein souffles. I haven't made them in awhile. If you heart bread pudding you will LOVE these. Very bread pudding-ish. They are also a great breakfast.


Shelly's Cranberry Protein Souffle

1/4 cup Walnuts &/or Raisins
2 eggs
1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk
1/2 cup Unsweetened Coconut
3 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla - on sale now)
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix, dry (I use this)
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 cup Cranberry Sauce (I used regular but a quick Google search will give you some SF recipes)
dash Cinnamon
Topping: SF Whipped Cream or SF Maple Syrup

Sprinkle the raisins and nuts into bottom of each ramekin.

Mix all remaining ingredients in a blender till smooth. Pour mixture into 4 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. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until set, knife inserted comes out clean. Serve chilled with SF whipped cream.

Apple
Pumpkin
Banana
Chocolate Banana
Banana Caramel Nut
Pineapple

Highlights of the day:

* Storm has cleared. Sky is blue. Sun is shining. Must hit the park today. Soak up some Vitamin D and enjoy this fresh just washed world.

* It's my nephew's birthday today. Happy Birthday Branden. He's just about to take the bar exam. It'll be nice to have an attorney in the family. It offers you the freedom to wig out at a discount. Who knows I might want to pull a Towanda. You remember Towanda from Fried Green Tomatoes...

Evelyn (Kathy Bates character): Excuse me. I was waiting for that space.
Girl #1: Yeah, tough!
Girl #2: Face it, lady, we're younger and faster.
Evelyn: Towanda (screams and smashes into the car) Towanda!! Yes ma'am!
Girl #2: What are you doing? Are you crazy?
Evelyn: Face it, girls. I'm older and I have more insurance.

... and a nephew who's an attorney ;)

* Now Mmmm coffee and tunes...

You are too funny! I loved Glee and can't wait for April! You use alot of Sugar Free Vanilla syrup, what do you like better about Regular Sugar Free Vanilla as opposed to Sugar Free French Vanilla? Is there a big flavor difference?

Hey Shelley,

I don't know how I will survive till April without my Glee fix. The DVD of the season come out on December 29th. That will have to do.

On the syrups... the SF French Vanilla is a richer vanilla bean flavor. To make things even more confusing LOL their is a Sugar Free Vanilla Bean flavor too. If you want a really strong vanilla bean flavor go with French Vanilla or Vanilla Bean... if you want sweet w/ a hint of vanilla go with SF Vanilla.

;) Hope that helps.

Shelly - how did I miss that you are a Gleek? Oh, my! It's my most favorite new show ever! Have you downloaded the songs from I-Tunes? I swear, some of them are better than the originals. I haven't seen the finale yet (I DVR'd it - too many Christmas parties right now!), but I am BUMMED that it doesn't come back until April! So nice to know we have yet one more thing in common! :)
