This pudding packs a punch!   ~24 grams of protein per serving; 23 carbs and only 5 grams of fat.

When cutting carbs  pre-contest, I am continuously searching for ways to make high protein, low sugar alternatives of my favorite snacks.  This is one version of banana pudding that is good enough to enjoy anytime, not just during contest prep.  It is made with fresh bananas, greek yogurt and natural peanut butter; so it is not only ohh so good, it is ohh so good for you too!

In a medium bowl mix together:

Banana Pudding with a double protein punch - Greek Yogurt & Vanilla Protein Powder

Banana Pudding with a double protein punch - Greek Yogurt & Vanilla Protein Powder

1/2cup greek yogurt (plain)

1/4package sugar free banana pudding mix

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

1 Tbsp Naturally More Peanut Butter (or PB of choice)

1/2 ripe banana, mashed (save other half to top pudding)

Cinnamon

(Optional) – 1 packet Stevia or Splenda

Gradually stir in approx 1/2 cup  milk  until mixture is of pudding consistency (I use light Soy)

Top pudding with remaining banana slices and sprinkle with additional cinnamon.

Place in Freezer for approximately 20-30 minutes or in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours until well chilled.

OPTIONAL: Top with 1/4cup granola, if desired

MAKES 2 SERVINGS.

GREEK YOGURT

Greek Yogurt is an excellent source of calcium and is also higher in protein and lower in sugar than traditional yogurts you may have tried.  It has a much thicker and creamier consistency as well. It is an excellent breakfast, lunch or snack food.  try it mixed with granola, fresh fruit, or honey.
