Surprise Chocolate Almond Butter Protein Pudding

Chocolate Spinach Pudding
Woah, that title is a mouthful! So, I’ve got another great recipe for you all. This one contains a special “surprise”… Actually it’s not much of a surprise but I added spinach to this pudding! It’s my new favourite thing to do because you get all the goodness of greens but without the taste. This is perfect to use up all that spinach that you just can’t bring yourself to eat! Don’t like spinach? No worries, you will like this pudding! It is creamy and delicious, it feels like you are eating dessert for breakfast. Topped with a few crushed pecans and mini dark chocolate chips, this is absolutely decadent.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup almond milk
1 scoop vanilla protein powder( I used designer whey french vanilla)
1/2 tbsp natural almond butter
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 cup quick oats
1 tsp flax seed
1/4 tsp xanthan gum (could possibly sub flax seeds)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 handful of spinach
2 drops stevia (or honey/agave/maple syrup/splenda)
8-9 ice cubes

Directions: Place all ingredients in a blender(start with ice) and blend until smooth and creamy. Add a little extra xanthan gum if necessary or more/less ice and almond milk depending on how thick you want your pudding! Top with pecans/mini chocolate chips or sugar-free chocolate syrup( recipe coming soon to the site!).
Enjoy!

I also made these delicious skinny chocolate protein pancakes with my own sugar-free chocolate syrup, peanut butter and bananas for breakfast the other day. They were so good! (Recipe from dashingdish.com)
