Need a sweet treat and need it in the next 5 mins before the urge to go to the ice cream shop takes over and everything turns pear shaped……literally?! Chocolate pudding do? I think I can help you out. You can send the gifts later, we are on a time limit, 5 minutes people, move. You’re welcome.
This recipe is a single serve, you could do it in a ramekin in the oven if you have the patience. I didn’t. High protein, low carbohydrate, no sugar, healthy fats. Seriously, what more do you need.
3 tbs almond meal (or oats)
2 tbs protein powder (I’ve used flavourless whey, pea protein would be great, you can omit this and add extra almond meal or coconut flour)
Stevia to taste, I have the concentrated powder and used 2 of the tiny little spoons (you could use a tablespoon of maple/agave/rice syrup if you prefer
2 tbs raw Cocoa
Pinch of instant coffee (optional- It just makes it taste more chocolatey, you could add more if you wanted a mocha cake)
Pinch of salt
2 tbs coconut oil
3 tbs milk of your choice, I used almond milk
Splash of vanilla extract
You will need a big mug. Add all the dry ingredients to the mug and mix well so they are all combined and any lumps are gone. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and stir really well until it is all mixed together. Pop it in the microwave for 2 1/2 mins. If you want it a bit firmer you can go for an extra 30 secs or so, I like mine all fudgy and gooey in the middle though. I popped a dollop of coconut cream on top of mine….oooohh heaven! Eat it now! This is NOT a pop-it-in-the-fridge-for-later dessert, it will not taste as good!
