Want a dessert or snack made with real ingredients that can be made quickly?
This Peanut Butter Pudding only has three ingredients and comes together in 5 minutes. That’s right, in five minutes you have a creamy pudding that is high in protein, calcium, healthy fats and low in sugar!
At my local grocery store, I’m fortunate to have a nut butter grinding station; each week, I push the little green button on their machine and within seconds, I am watching whole roasted peanuts turn into peanut butter. It’s amazing.
If you don’t have such a machine (or don’t feel like making your own nut butter at home), use the best, “natural peanut butter” your budget will allow. Mix it with plain, whole milk yogurt (which will have few additives than reduced fat versions) and a simple banana, and your work is done. For a little added crunch, you can top it with peanuts or even a few extra slices of fresh banana.
Or … if no one is looking, it’s good to eat right out of the blender –not that I know anything about that!
