Hi loves. Where have I been?? I don’t even know.

I do apologize for the lack of posting and MIA status, but there has just been so much going on. Matt and I went back to Indiana last weekend for a wedding shower that my mom had for us to celebrate with some of the friends and family in Indiana that couldn’t make it out to Arizona for the wedding. Visits home are always bittersweet because it seems like there is just never enough time.  Isn’t that how it always is?  I will do a little re-cap of my visit home later, but I will say it was so lovely to see friends and family that I have not seen in a long time.

Today I bring you a little tasty treat though. Its also been a hot minute since I’ve posted a recipe it seems, and I have a fun, easy and delicious one to share with you today.

If you know me at all you know I love my protein powders. If you really know me, you also know my obsession with Growing Naturals Pea Protein. Their vanilla blast seriously holds a special place in my protein heart.

So imagine my delight and excitement when I found out they were coming out with a chocolate flavor of the pea protein. Life Changing. It may actually be kind of pathetic how excited I was.

My favorite thing to actually do with their pea proteins is to make a simple protein frosting, but when I got the chocolate I wanted to have a little fun with it.

Since I’ve been on a bit of a dairy break and not able to enjoy my delicious frozen yogurt as often, I have been experimenting which new desserts, because I seriously have to have something sweet at the end of the night. I had made a tofu pudding in the past and since I love the creaminess the pea protein adds to most mixes, I thought it would be a perfect combination.

It was.

 Adding in Enjoy Life mini chips didn’t hurt either.

I took my base recipe for the tofu pudding and then added in about 2 tablespoons of the Growing Naturals Chocolate Pea Protein.

I put the tofu pudding in the freezer after mixed for about 10-15 minutes hoping it would make it more of an ice cream texture, it ended up more like frozen yogurt which was perfect to me!

Which did I mention it tasted amazing? Because it did.

The combination of the silken tofu and pea protein was just a beautiful creamy dessert.

This pudding was delicious, but I am very excited to use this new protein in other dishes.

As with the vanilla blast, I am obsessed.
