The holiday season is filled with cookies and treats but you can get your fix without all the sugar and with an added nutritional bonus with a Gingersnap Protein Shake. Or for a real treat you can make it into a delicious thick and creamy pudding, topped with a little Coco Whip coconut whipped cream. Packed with pumpkin, chia seeds, and protein and sweetened with a date you can stay on track this holiday season and have your “cookies” without unraveling your hard work. Next time the cravings hit for those holiday goodies whip it up into pudding by adding a frozen banana to treat yourself.

What is your favorite holiday sweet treat?

 

 

Gingersnap Protein Shake & Pudding*
Makes 1-2 servings
1c almond or coconut milk, or non dairy milk of choice (used So Delicious Almond Milk Plus for the shake, So Delicious Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Milk for the pudding)
1tsp chia seeds
1/2c pumpkin puree
1 scoop vanilla or vanilla chai protein powder (used Vega Vanilla Chia Vega One and Vega Vanilla Performance Protein)
2 tsp blackstrap molasses
1 Medjool date, pitted
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp fresh ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg

 

*Increase chia seeds to 1 tablespoon and blend in a frozen banana for thick, rich, delicious pudding! Top with So Delicious Coco Whip, or whipped topping, and optional crushed cookies or I like a drizzle of molasses.

 

Soak chia seeds in almond milk overnight or for at least 20 minutes. In a Vitamix, or high-speed blender, blend together almond milk with chia seeds and remaining ingredients until smooth. Enjoy!

As a Vega Recipe Ambassador I do receive some Vega products, which I used as an option in this recipe. I use Vega not because it is given to me , I do purchase much of it on my own as well, but because it has been my plant-based protein of choice since before I started blogging and some recipes are made with Vega products I purchase. I only write about foods I love, my blog is an extension of my hobby to make fun healthy food creations for me and my family. I do not make any money off any Vega sales or posts.

  2. Oh I love this! I adore ginger snaps and love transforming protein shakes into extra tasty treats! VegaOne Vanilla chai would so good with the spices you add to this to create the ginger snap flavors! Will certainly be making this!

      Thank you! I am all over transforming my favorite treats and desserts into shakes! I posted so many last year I haven’t posted as many this year as I don’t post daily anymore but always have to throw a good one out there every now and then! 😉 Cheers, hope you enjoy it!
