Protein Pudding

When I saw this recipe on Maria's Nutritious and Delicious Journal, I wasn't sure what to think...I love eggs and I love pudding, but come on, egg pudding?  One of Maria's sons hates eggs but will eat this.  Several of you have said how much they dislike eggs but I think this could be a winner-winner hard boiled dinner breakfast.

I was happily surprised to find out that I liked it a lot and the Kid has been making moves towards the leftovers, probably wondering if it's something healthy and nutritious or really just some innocent pudding waiting to be eaten.

I made only half this recipe to be sure I liked it before I committed all those eggs to it.  I also put some cocoa powder in it because some of us gotsta have the chocolate in it. 

The sweetener is really whatever you like best and the amount that you like, I used agave nectar and that worked just fine. 

I couldn't really tell you servings because it would just depend on how hungry you are and how much you want to eat but this is also a lovely way to 'enhance' eggs for the family and they would be none the wiser...

Protein Pudding

10 hard boiled eggs

1 can (full fat) coconut milk

1-2 teaspoons stevia glycerite (or other sweetener to desired taste)

1-3 teaspoons cinnamon

2 teaspoons vanilla extract (or any other complimentary flavor)

optional - 2 tablespoons cocoa powder

Peel the eggs. Place all the ingredients in a blender, liquid first, and puree until VERY smooth.   Store in an airtight container.

  1. Can you use heavy cream instead of coconut milk?
