Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pie Pudding, a delicious healthy snack or dessert!

Chocolate and pumpkin are just the best couple aren’t they?

I mentioned on Monday that we just used up our last bag of homemade garden tomato sauce that I froze.  The same goes for pumpkin!   When making this pudding I had to reach for my last bag of frozen pumpkin puree.    I’m always a bit sad seeing the last bag gone, but it’s a great feeling knowing all the vegetables get used with love.   We just planted our pumpkin seeds last week so already I’m planning for some Summer pumpkins!  Are you guys ready for the pumpkin dance?  Prepare yourself… hopefully I’ll be dancing with happiness soon!

This Pudding is awesome for so many reasons.    For one, you are using 1 and a half cups of pumpkin so it’s full of fiber! You are using 1.5 cups of pumpkin to 1 cup chocolate chips so you’d think this is super pumpkin tasting, but it’s not.  It’s still super rich in chocolate tasting to the extent that people who don’t like pumpkin (gasp!) will still be licking their dishes when they’re done.  I recommend the good ol trick of making this recipe for pumpkin haters, having them exclaim how great it is, and then laughing and telling them how much pumpkin they ate!    Oh, I love being mean!

Lots of people think Pumpkin is only for Fall months but I don’t agree with that.    I think Pumpkin is great for the summer months for cool treats.  Besides this chilled pudding, what about pumpkin ice cream or pumpkin milk shakes?  Delicious, right?

Please please please give this Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pie Pudding a try.    I think you will fall in love with it!

Beat Average! #TeamGNC

This post brought to you by GNC. All opinions are 100% mine.

You don’t just want to be average when it comes to health, right?  You want to push it hard, right?  Me too! That’s why I  love GNC’s new campaign #BeatAverage, average is for the other guys.  Beat Average is a positive call for us to go beyond just the norm, above the average and to do something more.  It’s excitement to push ourselves harder, telling ourselves we can run one more block, or do 10 more sit ups (no matter how bad it burns!).   It’s a rallying cry to strive for more, strive for what we deserve.   After looking at their inspiring user photos  it inspired me to join #TeamGNC.    Don’t you just love excitement for exercise, healthy eating and living well? I just want to throw on my sneakers right now and go for a walk!

Did you know that GNC Live Well started as  “General Nutrition Center” nearly 80 years ago in Pittsburgh? I had no idea it’s been around that long!  Growing up GNC was the go to health store for living well and performing our best and that holds true to this day.     At GNC they have everything you need to be everything you want to be.  

So go ahead and beat average!  Tell me in the comments how you push yourself and remember, every single step helps!
