Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding (a.k.a Protein Sludge)

OMG guys, okay this stuff is delicious. Not sure why I never used my PB2 (powdered peanut butter with less calories/more protein) earlier. It tastes amazing in this recipe and you only need a little bit! I love this stuff. Anyways if you like peanut butter and chocolate and want a high protein, low-fat, lower-carb breakfast then this is for you! You can either use protein powder or leave it out and follow the recipe without protein powder. Either way it will be delicious and good for you! You can make this the night before or in the morning for breakfast. Enjoy 🙂

Serves 1(protein powder variation):

Ingredients:

-3/4 cup 0% greek yogurt

-1/2 scoop chocolate or chocolate peanut butter protein powder(Gourmet Whey is delicious!)

-1 tbsp light cream cheese

-1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

-1 tbsp PB2 or peanut flour

-1/2 tsp-1 tsp sugar free/fat free chocolate pudding mix.

-Truvia or another sweetener to taste

-Any toppings you’d like! I like some fruit with something crunchy like a chocolate cereal but you can be as creative as you want! I’ve also used chopped up protein bars, peanuts, mini chocolate chips, rice krispies for some crunch, coconut, peanut butter, etc.!

 

Serves 1(without protein powder):

Ingredients:

-3/4 cup 0% greek yogurt

-1 tbsp light cream cheese

-2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

-1.5 tbsp PB2 or peanut flour

-1 tsp sugar free/fat free chocolate pudding mix.

-Truvia or another sweetener to taste

-Any toppings you’d like!

Directions: Combine protein powder(if using) and greek yogurt first until smooth. Then mix in the cream cheese until smooth.  Now add in your dry ingredients, leaving your sweetener for last since the pudding mix will add some sweetness itself. Then either place in the fridge until ready to eat or if in the freezer for about 10-20min(this works best when protein powder is added because the protein powder keeps it from getting too icy.) Top with whatever you want and enjoy!
