I know what you're thinking.....wait....guilt free pudding? Yes, you read that correctly. I love giving my clients different food options so that their cravings don't get the best of them. I'll admit when I first made this I was shocked at how amazing it tasted. Give this a try and let me know what you think. Enjoy!
* 1 lb of cauliflower florets (or riced cauliflower found in the frozen aisle)
* 2 cups of unsweetened almond, cashew or coconut milk
* 1 tsp of cinnamon
* 1/4 tsp of nutmeg (optional)
* 2 scoops of your favorite protein powder (I would use anything with vanilla flavor)
* 1 tbs of your favorite flavored syrup
In a food processor, pulse chop the cauliflower florets until the bits are the size of grains of rice. Frozen cauliflower may be used instead if desired, and already "riced" cauliflower is sold both fresh and frozen.
Place the cauliflower into a saucepan with your choice of milk. Add the cinnamon and nutmeg and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to keep mixture simmering and simmer for about 10-12 minutes until cauliflower is very soft.
NOTE: If you plan on reheating this for a later snack do NOT mix in the protein or the syrup just yet. Remove from heat and spoon into containers to chill. To serve, warm pudding mixture first, then stir in the protein and syrup just before serving.
Remove from heat and use a whisk to mix the protein powder of your choice and the tbs of your flavored syrup. Enjoy this warm or cold. Spoon into containers to chill and serve later or right away!
