Everyone loves chocolate pudding, but not everyone loves the nutritional content. Most store-bought puddings have at least 300 calories per cup, with the majority of those calories coming from sugar and fat. In addition, nearly all puddings have no more than 2 or 3 grams of protein.

This pudding is delicious, fast, and healthy, and only has 2 ingredients!

-  1 cup Fat Free Greek Yogurt
-  1 Scoop Chocolate Protein Powder

optional add ins:
-  Sweetener (Stevia)

-  Bananas 
-  Nuts 
-  Chocolate Chips
-  Coconut Flakes 

Scoop 1 cup of greek yogurt into a large cereal bowl. Add 1 scoop of protein powder and stir with a spoon until the powder is fully incorporated.
Add bananas, nuts, peanut butter, or any other topping if you want.
