  • 1 scoop Chocolate peanut butter protein powder (or plain chocolate protein powder)

  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tsp natural peanut butter

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!
