#RECIPEFRIDAY: 3 Ingredient Chocolate Protein Pudding.

Mmmmm...

Friday...


The day where we all get to savour in the goodness we've been making in our kitchens.

As my week has gone by fairly quickly (and restFUlly)...

I've also been getting lots of extra sleep into my routine (as in I've been going to bed earlier than normal)...

And as a result...

I've been feeling well rested in body. (In mind too, but I know that I will be getting more mind rest once I'm packed up and away on holidays...coming up real soon!)

If anything...

I've been doing what my being has been calling for and that is...

Giving it some extra zzzz's! (I typically get 7-8 hours of sleep..but I've been adding an extra 1/2 to 1hr more each night...unintentionally...just letting myself fall asleep.)

This little book has been a great vessel to my inner-ohm.
In addition to this.

I ain't no machine...

My workouts this week in a nutshell ;)

So...

It's only normal that I need some recharging too! (And I plan to do a whole lotta that this weekend while I loaf around with my sista!)

And...
Teddy of course ;)

Alright....

Onto my recipe of the week!

What I'm about to share is actually something I've been drizzling on top of my low carb protein pancakes...

Recipe

But...

In the midst of being on the road last week...

I've been enjoying this little cup of protein goodness ever since!

It only requires 3 (or 4) ingredients and...

It's as tasty and filling as ever!

Enjoy!


3 Ingredient Chocolate Protein Pudding

by *CaNdY FiT*
Prep Time: 1 minute
Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 scoops Chocolate Protein Powder (brand of choice)
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 cup water (enough to get it thick and gooey)
Optional

  • 1 (or 2) packets of Stevia or a few drops of sweetener of choice (I use NOW Vanilla Stevia)
  • 1 tsp ground flax or chia seeds (optional)
Instructions
  1. Mix ingredients together in a small bowl or mug
  2. Enjoy as is or, refrigerate for 1 hour or, freeze for 2 hours.

note
  • The consistency changes as you enjoy mixed, refrigerated or when frozen. My fave is when it's frozen because it's like ice cream.

  18. THIS IS THE EASIEST RECIPE that I CAN MOST DEFINITELY EAT!! And Plant Fusion just send me some of their chocolate protein powder, so YES IN DEED I am ON THIS! :)

    And I was thinking about sleep the other day and how I adore it so much and wonder what would happen if I just didn't set an alarm clock! What time would I actually get up! It's an experiment I need to try, but my crazy ROUTINE self, is just too scared to do that! LOL!

  21. Oh I love the simple quick and few ingredients that I always have on hand. I suddenly have a craving for chocolate. I sleep 6 hours and feel rested. I can't imagine sleeping 7-8 hours. I don't think my body would even stay asleep for that long.
