Peanut Butter Cup Protein Pudding

Peanut Butter Cup Protein Pudding Recipe

December 10, 2021

This is a delicious high-protein peanut butter pudding! This peanut butter cup protein pudding is made with peanut butter powder, protein powder, and almond milk, to help you reach all your health goals.

What is the Best Thing to Mix with Protein Powder?

Protein powder has come a long way in the past two decades! It used to be no matter what you mixed with the protein, it always tasted bad. I think that’s when people like me started to get creative trying to mask the flavor!

It’s an entirely different market now. There are protein powders with so many different dessert-like flavors, that you can just use a liquid like almond milk or regular milk, and many of them will taste great!

For this protein pudding, I used:

  • Peanut butter powder– for lower calories.
  • Protein powder, I used vanilla protein powder, because it’s so versatile and can take on new flavors of whatever you add to it.
  • Xantham gum, to thicken the pudding, rather than have it be a protein shake
  • Peanut butter cup skinny syrup, for extra flavor, but totally optional.
  • Almond milk to make it creamy
  • And then for it to truly be a dessert, I topped the protein pudding with a real Reese's cup! Portion control is key- I used only 1/2 of the Resee’s cup. Save the other half to make this again tomorrow.
