What is protein powder pudding? 

Protein powder pudding is a nutritious and protein-rich dessert or snack made with protein powder as one of the primary ingredients. It is one of those desserts you wish you knew about years ago – it is the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth without feeling guilty. 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! You will not find a protein pudding that is more rich and creamy. 

If you have your doubts, let me assure you that this recipe is undetectably “healthier” than most pudding recipes. I made sure it tastes good because eating healthy should never be a chore. Enjoy!

Why should I make protein pudding?

Making pudding with protein powder offers several health benefits, including increased satiety and stabilized blood sugar. Protein is known to be more satiating than carbohydrates or fats, so increasing the percentage of your calories that come from protein will help you feel fuller for longer, reducing the likelihood of overeating or snacking between meals. This can be particularly beneficial if you are trying to achieve or maintain a healthy weight.

High protein pudding can also help stabilize your blood sugar levels. Eating regular pudding, which is high in carbs, can lead to spikes and subsequent crashes in blood sugar. Protein slows down the absorption of carbohydrates, providing a more stable source of energy and preventing crashes.

How can I customize my pudding? 

There are many ways of customizing your protein powder pudding. I suggest adding an additional date or two if you like your protein powder pudding sweeter. You can also add a dash of honey or maple syrup. 

One of my favorite toppings is nut butter. Adding nut butter is an easy way to increase the protein and healthy fats. You can also top your protein powder pudding with fresh berries, sliced banana, and frozen fruits like mango or berries. 

For an extra energy boost, you can substitute half of the coconut milk for coffee, which gives the protein pudding a nice mocha flavor. Alternatively, you can use our mocha protein powder.

Why drink wholesome?

This recipe was made with drink wholesome chocolate protein powder, which is perfect for pudding. For starters, our egg white protein powders are made from whole food protein sources, not protein concentrates and isolates. The latter have been stripped of everything but the protein, giving them an unpleasant chalky aftertaste.

Our protein powder is also sweetened with maple sugar or monk fruit. Nearly every other protein powder company uses artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohols, or stevia, all of which have a bitter aftertaste because they trigger bitter taste receptors. Order samples to taste the difference.

Now without further ado, here is the best protein powder pudding recipe.

Protein Powder Pudding Recipe


-1 cup raw cashews 

-2 dates

-1/3 cup coconut milk

-½ cup drink wholesome chocolate protein powder

-1 tbsp chia seeds

-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 it is thick. Serve the pudding with a drizzle of peanut butter.
