    I LOVE peanut butter! I really love Reese’s peanut butter cups! Especially the white chocolate ones. I will indulge in one from time to time, but they aren’t exactly good for you…So I decided to try and come up with something that tastes just as wonderful, but is also healthy! I am happy to say I have succeeded!!

    How awesome do those look?! If you notice, there are 3 of them! Not just 2! Because all 3 of these are under 200 calories. Plus they have 30 grams of protein! Whoo 🙂

    These are super easy to make! You just need vanilla protein powder, unsweetened almond milk, sugar free fat free vanilla pudding mix, PB2, and sweetener of choice.

    Of course you can make yours chocolate! Just use chocolate protein powder and chocolate pudding mix! I used vanilla almond milk but plain is fine. You could really use any kind of milk. Also, any peanut butter or nut butter will do.

    To start, mix together your milk, protein powder, pudding mix and sweetener. You can leave the sweetener out, but I like my sweets extra sweet!
    Protein Pudding

    Make sure it’s nice and smooth. It will be a little thinner than pudding.

    Put a spoonful into each cup. I used silicon baking cups. The paper ones should work, although they may stick a bit…You could probably just make them right in a cupcake pan, but I would lightly spray it with some nonstick spray. You could even just make a giant one in a bowl!

    I made 3, but you could make 2 bigger ones…whatever you prefer. Or double the recipe to make even more!

    Stick them in the freezer while we mix up our peanut butter.
    Protein Recipes

    Just mix some PB2 with water and add sweetener if desired. You don’t want it too runny. You can add lots of peanut butter or just a little bit. Whatever your little heart desires.

    Take cups out of freezer and put on a dollop of peanut butter.

    Freeze again and top with remaining pudding protein mix. Stick them back in the freezer for about 30 minutes and enjoy!

    My oh my! These were delicious! You can eat them straight out of the freezer, or let them sit in the fridge for a few minutes to soften up.

    They do melt kinda fast, but don’t worry, they won’t last that long!!

    Mmmm…what a bite! Now if you only wanted to eat one, it would only be about 67 calories.
    I think I will stick with eating them all myself 🙂

    If for some crazy reason you have any left over, you can store them in the freezer for quite a while. They are great right out of the freezer or you can let them thaw for a minute. Beware! They melt quickly!
