Low Carb Chocolate Protein Pudding

Chocolate pudding cups are a childhood delicacy that are still yet to be forgotten. However, it’s sometimes hard to find a yummy dessert that hits all your macros AND satisfies you–and before you get ahead of yourself, no–those little pudding cups aren’t a saving grace.

However, we have the perfect low-carb chocolate protein pudding recipe that mirrors that yummy snack. Not only is this recipe something that can be whipped up in a hurry, but it will keep you full for hours! Say goodbye to midnight snackin’ and check out the protein pudding below!

Low Carb Chocolate Protein Pudding | Yields 1

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup almond or coconut milk

  • 1 serving chocolate protein powder (can be whey-based or plant-based)

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 1 tablespoon Cocoa powder

  • 2 Tablespoon chocolate chips

  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Fresh fruit (optional)

Directions

  1. Put everything in a blender and mix it all up until smooth!

  2. Top with chia seeds, fresh fruit, and/or chocolate chips. Place in the refrigerator in a shallow serving bowl. Put saran wrap over the pudding and place on top of the pudding so the top of the pudding doesn’t harden. Let cool for 45-60 minutes.

  3. Serve cold and enjoy!

Greek Couscous Salad with Chicken!

Pasta is a carb that is universally a favorite. It’s filling, yummy, and it has you craving for more. However, sometimes it’s hard to control portion sizes and eat pasta day-in and day-out because it can often lack healthy fats and solid amounts of protein. 

But we have a solution to that: Greek Coucous Salad with Chicken! Couscous is a type of pasta, but is much smaller in size. Dressing this cousin of your typical pasta-noodle with olives (a healthy fat), some veggies, and some chicken is a perfect way to keep eating your favorite foods.

Check it out below!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cooked chicken breasts, seasoned with salt and pepper

  • 1 cup feta cheese cubed
  • 1 cup pitted kalamata olives
