As part of my ambassadorship with Blue Diamond, we were challenged to come up with a “Easy as Breeze”-5 ingredient recipe using BD’s Chocolate Almond Milk. Two things I love –> 1) EASY and 2) CHOCOLATE. I immediately thought of those yummy pudding pops that my mom used to buy for us in the 90’s. Remember those?? (I think they actually still sell them.) Mama would buy a box and Katy and I would devour them within the day. It worked out because Katy loved the vanilla and I always grabbed for the chocolate – the “swirl” flavor would be split 50/50. Ah, memories….
I can’t eat an entire box of pudding pops. I mean I could…but probably shouldn’t. They aren’t the most waist friendly. So I created an EASY twist on the 90’s classic AND I added peanut butter this time because everything is better with peanut butter. Made with only FOUR ingredients, they mimic the texture of pudding pops – creamy and delicious – but have adult nutrition. Get this –> each pop has only 77 calories and they’re packed with protein so you can even use them as a post-workout treat. The chocolate almond milk creates a perfect creamy base that I wasn’t expecting.
We’ve been eating these out on the deck while playing with the water hose….because while I’m an adult, I still sometimes act like a child. Katy – you can keep the vanilla – I call dibs on these peanut butter chocolate ones.
