Low carb and sooooo yummy. I have one of these virtually every night! Great if you have a sweet tooth!

1 scoop Whey Gourmet Peanut Butter Chocolate Whey Protein (or Whey Gourmet Milk Chocolate)
1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ cup water
1 tsp natural peanut butter (could also use PB2)

Note: I’ve tried this recipe with numerous protein powder brands. Specifically for this, the Whey Gourmet brand works the best.

In a small microwave safe bowl, mix together protein powder and cocoa powder. Add in ¼ cup warm water and stir until blended. Should be pudding-like. Microwave for 30 seconds, or until the outside starts to puff up (you’ll have to keep a close eye on it), and the centre is still a gooey, pudding like centre. Don’t overcook it or it will be hard and DRY!! Then top with peanut butter. Enjoy!

Nutrition for entire recipe (depends on the protein you use. Whey Gourment is a low carb, low sugar variety)
