A wonderful indulgent tasting chocolate pudding which is perfect after a workout but also ideal if you want an energising breakfast or healthy snack. You can keep this vegan by simply using a chocolate vegan protein powder. I use coconut yogurt but you could swap this for thick Greek yogurt if tolerated. A perfect treat for children too. This takes just minutes to beat together making it the perfect chocolate dish when you’re craving something sweet.
