Eating a Paleo diet will:
Unfortunately, when your friends are eating a 2000 calorie Dairy Queen Blizzard loaded with fudge, caramel and cholesterol meds, it kinda sucks to always pull out an apple and pretend that your dessert is better than theirs.
That’s why I have been publishing some of my favorite paleo dessert recipes lately
Awesome tasting recipes that are made with Paleo-friendly ingredients.
Unfortunately…even these amazing Paleo desserts aren’t perfect.
What might be perfect is the following recipe for Protein Power-Packed Paleo Pudding made by my buddy Matt Jones.
[box type="info"]According to Chef Matt….This custard uses coconut oil which has MCT’s for fuel, and the recipe overall is low sugar, easy to make, paleo, and tastes great. The only thing I thought it was lacking is protein. I have some egg white protein from MRM that is also low sugar without a lot of extra ingredients or artificial sweeteners, so I tried the recipe with the protein powder in it and I think it works great.[/box]
And I agree.
We are both big fans of the original Chocolate banana coconut custard recipe that I posted in my second installment of Paleo Dessert Recipes. But with the extra protein, Matt has created a super snack.
[box type="note"]In addition to the protein powder, Matt added some stevia to the recipe.. feel free to modify as your sweet-tooth dictates[/box]
|2 medium ripe bananas|
|5 Tbs almond butter|
|1/2 cup coconut oil, melted|
|Vanilla extract to taste|
|6 Tbs raw cacao or cocoa powder|
|3 packets of stevia|
|2 scoops protein powder of choice|
[box type="info"]Matt : Here is the approximate nutritional breakdown of my version. I would call this “modern Paleo”, fairly low carb and low sugar (and most come from banana), some fiber, lots of good fat (MCT’s and some monounsaturated from almond butter), some protein, and a decent amount of calories:[/box]
