Nothing Screams love more than rich, decadent, melt in your mouth chocolate pudding – so with mothers day coming up it seems only fitting I share one of my most favorite go-to desserts.The Chocolate Protein Pudding which is gluten free, refined sugar free, dairy free, rich in protein and damn right delicious.
These protein puddingss are so simple to make, they take very little time and effort and are quite impressive to whip up as a dessert for just about any occasion. I find them great as a post workout meal, breakfast or mid afternoon pick me up as they are nourishing, healing, full of fibre and protein to keep you fuller and satisfied for longer. I have demonstrated in the photos that you can serve these two ways. You can eat it straight out of the mug, ramekin (you choose) and pour your chocolate on top, or present it on a saucer or bowl, giving you extra room to add more nourishing ingredients – think; Coconut yoghurt, berries, mixed nuts, clean ice cream, pure maple syrup, the possibilities are endless!
