Chocolate Parfait with Protein
You don’t have to miss out on good food, even when you’re trying to live a healthier lifestyle. This protein pudding recipe offers over 12 grams of protein and a fraction of the sugar found in typical desserts. It’s good enough to eat it alone, or it can be layered with strawberries and whipped cream for the full chocolate parfait experience.
These chocolate protein pudding cups take two minutes of whisking and 5 minutes of setting, that’s it. A healthy chocolate recipe with minimal effort!
Other sweet treats to sneak into your healthy lifestyle are this Strawberry Pina Colada Protein Shaved Ice Cream and my Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Protein Shake in addition to your protein chocolate pudding.

How to Make This Protein Pudding Recipe
Make the Protein Chocolate Pudding
Whisk together your pre-mixed protein shake (I love Premier Protein shakes) and the box of chocolate pudding for 2 minutes. Allow your protein chocolate pudding to set for at least 5 minutes.
Spoon the chocolate pudding into shot glasses or pudding cups. Enjoy by itself, or layer with your fruit of choice (I recommend strawberries!)
You can also choose to top with whipped cream to finish out the parfait, or omit to further decrease the sugar content.
High Protein Pudding Frequently Asked Questions
Do I Have to Use Premier Protein Shakes?
Absolutely not. I simply recommend them because you can buy them in bulk from stores such as Costco, and I like that they don’t have an aftertaste. This protein pudding recipe would work with any pre-made protein shake.
Do I Have to Use A Vanilla Protein Shake to Make This Pudding?
Not necessarily. I like using the vanilla because it complements the chocolate pudding mix well and doesn’t mix two competing chocolate flavors together. You could use a chocolate shake for a double-chocolate pudding, or experiment with other flavors. Let us know how it goes if you try something new!
