5 Luscious Protein Pudding Recipes for a Creamy Treat
Sometimes you want something crunchy, or salty – and other times, nothing but a creamy treat will do. When the craving hits for a snack that’s velvety and rich, and you still want to maintain your healthy eating habits, you can answer the call with protein pudding.
All of these puddings incorporate wholesome ingredients, and each has at least 14 grams of protein – plus, there’s a variety of flavors to suit any taste. Grab a spoon and dig in.
1. Chocolate Protein Pudding
Chocolate pudding with 5 simple ingredients and 22 grams of protein? Yes, please. With Greek yogurt as a base and a little maple syrup to sweeten it, you could even indulge in this pudding for breakfast (we wouldn’t judge).

Swap a few mini chocolate chips or chopped strawberries for the banana for a different twist.
