Almond Joy Protein Pudding - vegan protein pudding recipe

Almond Joys used to be one of my favorite candy bars. Well, back in Poland we had Bounty bars which were pretty much Mounds. I loved them. So much. But then I discovered Almond Joy when I moved to the US and I loved those bars just as much. Something about the coconut and chocolate tasted so exotic and light, but yet so satisfyingly good. I loved this sweet combo.

Then I started eating cleanly and I dropped all candy bars. I haven’t had an Almond Joy in probably over a year. Sad. Thankfully, since becoming a clean eater, I have also become more creative in the culinary department. Since I have recreated numerous favorites into a healthy alternatives, such as my Reese’s overnight oats or my banana cream pie parfaits . I think it’s time to make more candy bars into healthy yummy alternatives. So here came the Almond Joy protein pudding.

I recently ran out of Jay Robb Egg White protein powder and I’ve gotten some new egg white protein powder to try out. I’m weary of trying out new products just like that but this one seemed like a good deal as well. MRM has all natural protein powders, including the egg white – which contain no artifical flavors, colors, or sweetners; and are free of any dairy products . “It offers a source of protein that is 100% derived from egg albumen. Produced from a superior extraction process, our egg white concentrate provides a foundation of essential amino acids that mixes easily and tastes better than traditional egg white proteins.” I tried the MRM Egg White protein powder in french vanilla flavor. This flavor packs only 120 calories per scoop and 24g protein and only 1.5g carbs. It is also sweetened with Stevia. I enjoyed this protein powder, it is actually very sweet – sweeter than Jay Robb’s as far as I recall. I haven’t tried it in a smoothie or shake yet, since I usually use my protein powders in more extravagant ways haha, but the flavor is very good. I’d recommend this product, especially since it’s cheaper than Jay Robb’s egg white protein in the same flavor!

I also got a shaker bottle from the company which is bigger than my regular one. Perfect actually, now I don’t have to go to the water fountain as often to refill it :) I drink water like it’s my job!

So anyway, now forward to the recipe. You’re gonna like this one, readers. It actually tastes like an Almond Joy but you don’t have to feel guilty about eating it! Like, ever. Unless you eat 5 bowls of it, I guess. Haha.

  1. [...] Since finishing the Beachbody Ultimate Reset and being back to my Scheduled workouts I feel it is time to really take control of my nutrition again.  Not that it went bad at all, I just received a new appreciation for food and to make food fun.  I think the more I use Instagram the more excited I get about fun, healthy, clean eating food.  Tonight I finished my Day #3 in my Les Mills Pump/ Insanity Asylum hybrid and of course finished my workout around 10pm.  I always want to eat something after my workout but eating so late is always a challenge so I want to make sure to master what I am putting in my body and really trying to focus on protein and light carb after a late night workout.  So today I decided to try a Version of Sensual Appeal’s Almond Joy Protein Pudding.
