The Best Protein Powder Pudding

The Best Protein Powder Pudding

Make the best protein powder pudding with Drink Wholesome.

This protein powder pudding is the dessert that you wish you knew about years ago. It is the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth without feeling guilty about doing so. I make this recipe at least once a week, and hide it in the back of the fridge where no one else can find it! (Yes, it is that good.) I will admit that this recipe takes more time and effort than most pudding recipes, but it is so worth it! It is ridiculously rich and creamy, and only contains real food ingredients – which are perfect for cooking. You cannot go wrong! If you have your doubts, let me assure you that this recipe is undetectably “healthier” than standard pudding recipes. We made sure it tastes good because eating well should never be a chore! Please note that we have only made this protein powder pudding with Drink Wholesome; other brands of protein powder may yield different results. Enjoy! 


-1 cup raw cashews 

-2 dates

-4 tbsp coconut milk

-½ cup Drink Wholesome chocolate protein powder

-1 tbsp coconut oil

-1 tsp vanilla extract


Boil three cups of water in a medium saucepan. Add the raw cashews, and let them soak for 1 hour. Drain the cashews, and add them to a blender along with the rest of the ingredients. Blend the mixture until it is creamy and smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Add more coconut (or almond) milk if you have trouble blending. If pudding is not sweet enough for your liking, a few more dates! Scoop the mixture into a bowl and refrigerate it for at least 2 hours, or until thick. Serve with a drizzle of peanut butter.

You are reading an article written by Drink Wholesome, a small, local company from New Hampshire. Drink Wholesome has taken a fundamentally different approach to protein powder. We use 100% real food ingredients. Research suggests that these ingredients are better for you than the highly processed additives and protein isolates found in most protein powders. They are also far better tasting as they contain the complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and other nutrients that make food taste good. Order samples to see for yourself.
