Protein Pudding recipe



Image ingredients


All you need is-

200ml Almond milk- Almond milk contains as much Vitamin D and Calcium as Cows Milk and tastes much better!

1/4 Cup of porridge oats- Oats are Low Gi which means they will keep you fuller for longer

1 Table spoon of natural peanut butter- There is no added salt or sugar just 100% natural it will provide you with some healthy fats

Vegan protein powder- one scoop of protein powder provided around 20g of protein ( we usually use chocolate but Vanilla today)


Image blender


put all the ingredients in the blender Matt has three a day i have two in between meals so the we make the recipe above 5 times the quantitys


Image mix


Here is it blended up, now you can leave the Peanut butter out until the end and drop it in the mix when you going to eat it and if you have used Chocolate protein powder it tastes like Reeces peanut butter cups!


Image pudding


Final products, delicious , nutritious complete meal. With Protein, Carbohydrates and Fats!


You can substitute the protein powder for silken tofu and add cocoa powder and some stevia a natural sweetener!


enjoy

Ball Crunches 3x15
Ball leg Raises 3x15
Assisted pull ups 3x6 these felt better as I attacked them
Cable rows 85/6 85/6 much better after skips advice
Bent over rows 35/6 35/6 I seemed to power through these
Shrugs 60/6 60/6

No mass machine cardio did some incline walking to get a feel for the cardio program I had wrote for my sister
