Low-Carb Chocolate Protein Pudding

Screen-Shot-2012-08-05-at-6.54.18-PM

That’s right, cauliflower. I know. It sounds ‘kind of’ gross. When Nicola told me to try adding chocolate protein powder to cauliflower, I couldn’t help but put on a rectangular smile while thinking a combination of ‘interesting’ and ‘yuck’. I’m not one to eschew creative cooking (you might be able to tell from my recipes?). In fact, I really do love outside the box thinking, particularly in the context of integrating fruit and veg to cakes et al but… when I first heard Nicola raving about cauliflower and chocolate, I tell you, I couldn’t get my head around the idea. I mean, cauliflower is savory! Right?! Wrong.

Ingredients:

2 cups steamed cauliflower florets
4 tablespoons cocoa powder (optional but good for extra cocoaness)
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 cup chocolate whey protein powder (or casein!)
1 tablespoon milk (or more, it depends on how thick you want your pudding)

1 tablespoon toffee flavdrops (optional but nice!)

Directions:

Blended together until well mushed.

You may still be thinking ‘no way am I going to be mixing cauliflower and chocolate, what an abomination!’ To that I just want to say that I thought so too and here I am, heartily recommending it! What’s it like? Well… it’s lovely! You really can’t taste the cauliflower, it just tastes super chocolatey and thickly puddingy. One of the reasons I love this is because it allows for one to create a ridiculously healthy chocolate pudding which, for chocaholics like myself, represents a castle in the sky. I urge you to try Nicola’s protein truffles too! If together, her and I don’t manage to change your mind about cauliflower and chocolate, well… can’t say we didn’t try. Another thing I love about this is that it’s a fantastic way to create low carb puddings and truffles while retaining moisture and volume. In fact, I am thinking that tomorrow I will freeze some steamed cauliflower to fluff with chocolate whey – I’ve always wondered about low-carb protein fluffs and cauliflower might just hold the answer, waaa! so many possibilities.
