I deemed this week “Pre-Op” Love Fest on Bariatric Foodie. That’s mostly been happening on Facebook and Twitter where we’ve had pre-op themed discussion questions. I’ve also started doing what I call “cook-alongs” on social media, where I post in real time what I’m cooking. In honor of my pre-ops, yesterday I did a cook-along where I demonstrated how quick and easy it is to make protein pudding!
Alongside that, late last week I received this in the mail.
I’d heard about Torani sugar-free S’mores syrup and was curious to try it. Would it really taste like S’mores? I wanted to find out! So since I didn’t want to make just plain protein pudding I figured I’d make S’mores protein pudding!
Nik’s S’mores Protein Pudding
(Makes about six 1/2 c. servings)
- 1.5 oz. box sugar-free chocolate instant pudding
- 2-3 scoops of your favorite chocolate protein powder (I used 3 scoops of Click because the scoops are small. if you use a protein powder with bigger scoops, use just 2)
- 2 c. milk (on Facebook we discussed whether you can really use soy, almond or coconut milk. Many Foodies reported success, but said they use slightly less than 2 cups)
- 2-3 tbsp.. your favorite kind of sugar-free syrup, (I used Torani sugar-free S’mores)
