It seems the cravings for sweets get even more intense when dieting hard. Or maybe you’re like me and you like to “have your cake and eat it too”…consume sweet treats, but keep them within the parameters of your nutrition plan. Protein pudding is one of my favorite desserts and I must say, I have perfected it with two ingredients: AmplifyXL and So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk. I have tried other protein powders and other “milks” and liquids but this particular protein/coconut milk combo makes it a true pudding: thick & creamy! If you’re already an AmplifyXL or Amplify Smoothie user you know that it is thicker and creamier than other protein powders, making it dessert-like when mixed with water alone! Imagine it pudding!
Without further ado!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 Cups So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk
- 3 Scoops NDS Nutrition AmplifyXL Vanilla Flex (Amplify Smoothie works also)
- 1 Package, 4 serving Jell-O Pudding Mix (I used banana cream but you can use any flavor)
- Topping: 1/4 Quest protein bar cut into pieces
Whisk all ingredients together with wire whisk for 2 minutes. Refrigerate for 5 minutes or longer (I always like it to sit for an hour or more). Top with fresh slices of banana, Cool Whip & walnuts or a Quest Banana Nut Muffin protein bar.
