    Instructions
    1. In a mixing bowl, combine pudding mix, protein, instant espresso and cocoa powder. Whisk to thoroughly combine.
    2. Add milk and extract, then beat on medium with a hand mixer for a few seconds, then switch the speed to high. You can also use a stand mixer if you have one. Either way, start slow and then increase speed to work out the lumps. Also be careful to scrape the bowl midway through to make sure you mix in all the dry ingredients. (TIP: Taste the mixture once you are done. If it’s not minty enough, you can add more extract by the drop but be careful…that stuff is STRONG!)
    3. The mixture should start setting fairly quickly. Divide the mixture equally into four cups. Refrigerate cups for an hour before serving. NOTE: Because you’ve added protein, the pudding will be a bit firmer than normal pudding (mousse-like).
    4. When serving, top with whipped cream and crushed sugar-free peppermint pieces for garnish, if desired.
