In the kitchen, one plus one can equal much more than three. By combining ingredients packed with umami (mushrooms! beef! tomatoes!), you can exponentially increase the mouth-filling savoriness of your final dish. Here’s an example in the form of a comforting, fork-tender stew — and with a
My Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Mousse Pudding
1 Scoop chocolate casein protein powder
2 Tablespoons of PB2 (you could also use natural peanut butter, but it will contain a lot more calories, so factor that in if you’re counting)
1/2 Tablespoon of unsweetened baking cocoa
1 Tablespoon of Stevia
2 or more Tablespoons of water (this part is tricky)
Put all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. Then (this is the important part!) SLOWLY add cold water, tablespoon by tablespoon.. mixing in between.. until you get a VERY thick consistency. Once it’s thoroughly mixed and at a thick consistency, pop it in the freezer for 15-30 minutes. I leave mine in for 30 because I like it colder and denser in consistency. It is seriously SO rich and delicious. I have it almost EVERY night before bed because it’s THAT good =)
1 cup soy protein powder (I used MAGNUM isolate, Chocolate Love)
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp sea salt (optional)
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup wheat germ, divided
SOAK prunes in warm water for 10 minutes to soften.
BLEND prunes and water in a food processor. Add nut butter and process until smooth. Add more water as needed. Add protein powder, flaxseed, cinnamon and salt, then add the cranberries and 1/4 cup wheat germ, and pulse to combine thoroughly.
ROLL dough into a small ball about the size of a gumball between your palms. If dough is too sticky to work with, freeze it for 15 minutes.
ROLL each ball in wheat germ to coat. Set balls on a baking sheet and place in a freezer for 2 to 4 hours to allow them to harden. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until needed.

REVIEW: I don’t have a food processor so I blended everything in my blender. My blender was struggling to fully mix the ingredients so I added more water to help with the blending process. I think in the end, there was too much water because it was difficult to make these into balls. So instead I poured the mixture into my silicon 6-cup tray. Ball or no ball, these were delicious! If you prefer a sweeter protein treat, this is your guy.
1 cup ground quinoa (125g). [Blend dry quinoa in a food processor to make ground quinoa. Quinoa flour would probably work too but making ground quinoa is cheaper.]
1 cup water (240 ml)
2 tbsp white almond butter
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp brown sugar (put more if you’re not used to low-sugar desserts) or your favorite sweetener to your own taste
Mix everything together. Put in a cake pan or in several small cake pans and place in a steamer. Steam for 25 to 30 minutes. (If you don’t have a steamer you can use a steamer pot with water at the bottom and a strainer on top to hold the cake.)
I made the raspberry filling mixing raspberries with a bit of white almond butter.
A small serving (on the first photo) is about a sixth of the whole cake and contains 90 calories.
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (any flavor will do)
2 tbs sugar-free vanilla coconut milk
1 tbs ground flaxseed
1/4 cup ricotta (gives thicker consistency, but optional)
1 tbs natural nut butter (optional topping)
Spray pan with cooking spray. Pour mixture into pan with heat on medium. Cook one side until you see the bubbles form. Gently flip over pancake and cook on the other size until the middle is done (use a spatula or fork to check the center and make sure it’s done).
I make this almost every weekend, it’s so good! =)
