Step 4: Adding a little bit at a time, mix in 2 1/2 tablespoons water with the powder mixture, stirring constantly.
Step 5: Mix until well combined and a thin pudding consistency is reached.
Step 6: Marvel at the delicious pudding mixture you now have.
Step 7: Divide half of the pudding mixture between two muffin cups.
Step 8: Chill in the freezer for 10 minutes to set.
Step 9: Once set, add in 1/2 tbsp nut butter to each cup.
Step 9: Smooth the nut butter into an even layer over the pudding layer.
Step 10: Divide remaining half of pudding mixture to top the nut butter in each muffin cup. Make sure the nut butter is completely covered. Then let chill in the freezer for at least 30 minutes before removing.
Yummmmmm…. and there you have it, protein-packed-double-chocolate-nut-butter-cups-of-delicious-rich-fudgey-love!
Just a warning, these cups are delicate and at room temperature they melt quite quickly, so I suggest popping them in a bowl or putting them on a plate and enjoying with a fork or spoon!
….Or you can eat them with your hands and lick all the gooey chocolate goodness off your fingers after!
… I may or may not have done that… a few times.So…nutritional stats on these little cups of love…? 220 calories (per 2 cups), only 6g of carbs, 9g of healthy fats, and 30g of protein!! Yup…30g!! (compared to the 210 calories (per 2 cups), 24g of carbs ( 21g being refined sugar), 12g of fats (including hydrogenated), and only 5g of protein..not to mention the list of laboratory ingredients… in those other guys peanut butter cups, I’d say mine do quite well ) Alrightly, now – let’s move onto the wicked awesome treadmill routine!! This is kind of like a high intensity interval routine… but kind of not. Maybe more like a pyramid? I’m not really sure how to term it… I love it because the build up is a little slow (the first 12 minutes is pretty much a warm up), but then before you know it your running at full speed and totally in-the-mode, endorphins-flowing, sweat-streaming, heart-pumping goodness, and then you get a nice finish at the end where a what-might-seem-like-normal-paced jog feels like a slow, steady, cool-down. I kept my incline on 0.5 the last time I did this.. I know it’s not much of an incline , but it still adds just that little extra intensity that can work my body a little harder without me really even noticing! With my personal stats I burn a good 340 calories during the workout!
