Hola Readers!

Sometimes I have a major sweet tooth, and once I get started I cannot stop!  This is one problem I do have and I just try to avoid sweets all together if I can.  I preach amount moderation which is what I strive for, but it is not always easy.  If I can make a “healthier” treat I try to, and hope that I am satisfied after  🙂

On Saturday after work I knew I wanted a “treat” but I knew I needed some protein so I whipped up some protein pudding and topped it with a tbsp of dark chocolate chips!

Protein Pudding

Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop vanilla UMP
  • 1 tbsp chocolate PB2 
  • 2 egg whites
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 stevia packet
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • Splash almond milk

Optional topping: 1 tbsp dark chocolate chips

Directions:

  • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl- whisk well to incorporate the eggs with the dry ingredients.
  • Spray a small ramekin with non stick cooking spray
  • Pour batter into ramekin
  • Microwave for 60-90 seconds- checking at 30 second intervals

It definitely hit the spot!

I thought it would be more muffin like, but when I stirred in the chocolate chips it was very creamy, so I am calling this one a pudding 🙂

Enjoy!

Saturday night we went out to dinner and bowling for a friend’s birthday! Happy Birthday Micah!

He doesn’t look to happy here…It’s probably because our waiter wasn’t that great…but he got a shot of tequila, a Mexican donut dessert, and a shot glass to take home.   I was pretty much in a food coma all night.
