A long time ago I was on the Ideal Protein diet. It was very successful for me but you had to eat a lot of packaged meals and that just didn’t mesh well for someone who loves to cook and eat good food. However one thing that I did get hooked on was their protein pudding.
I ate it as a snack but you could just as easily eat it for breakfast if you wanted. So I decided to create my own homemade protein pudding recipe and ended up with this deliciously easy keto peanut butter chocolate protein pudding recipe.
It is so good and only takes 5 minutes to make! I love it because it’s tasty, low carb, high protein, high fiber, sugar free and full of health fats. It really is a healthy sweet treat you can feel good about eating. I also like that it doesn’t use heavy cream as that sometimes upsets my stomach.

Recipe ingredients I used and substitutions.
So what all is involved with this delicious treat? All you need is a few simple ingredients – protein powder, unsweetened cocoa powder, avocado, almond milk and sweetener.
Quest Peanut Butter Protein Powder
I used Quest peanut butter protein mix because it added the peanut butter flavor and protein but also I like the taste of it and it’s pretty low carb. Other options you could use are natural peanut butter, PB2 or other peanut butter powder or another peanut butter protein powder.
If you want you can get the peanut flavor from regular peanut butter and then just use a vanilla or chocolate protein powder. And if you are peanut free try almond butter or sunflower seed butter.
Divine Cocoa Powder
I love this brand of cocoa powder because it has no carbs and has a very rich chocolate flavor. However you can use regular cocoa powder if you want. I can find Divine cocoa in my grocery store so if you can find it and are on a low carb diet it will come in handy and is worth the investment.
Regular milk has quite a few carbs so if you watching carbs you will want to use unsweetened almond milk or another plant base milk like coconut milk or some the others out there. Just check the nutritional info on the label.
SweetLeaf Stevia Drops
I love these flavored stevia drops because they add lots of sweetness and the flavors are good. I use the vanilla stevia drops a lot because they not need to use vanilla extract in many keto recipes. You can use either chocolate or vanilla flavored. You can also use your favorite sweetener of choice.
However if it’s a granulated sweetener you will want to add 1 teaspoon and then add more if you want. Stevia is so much sweeter than regular sweeteners like monk fruit or erythritol so it’s hard to give you an exact amount to substitute with.
his is an important ingredient because it creates a thick and creamy texture and adds a dose of healthy fats. This will make this protein pudding filling and satisfying. I use either fresh or frozen. I found the frozen chunks at Aldi and I’ve seen them at Costco.
It’s nice to use frozen avocado because it keep the pudding cold so you can either it right away so you can either cut up fresh avocado and freeze it or use the bagged frozen. You can also use room temperature fresh avocado and add an ice or two to chill it or refrigerate before eating.

- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tablespoon Divine cocoa powder
- vanilla creme stevia to taste, optional
- Add everything to a high speed blender except the sweetener.
- Blend on high.
- Taste to see if it needs sweetener. If so add a few drops of stevia or sweetener of your choice.
- Refrigerate before eating.
- You can use a room temperature avocado if you want. A frozen one just makes it colder. Also you can add an ice cube or two to chill it if you want to eat it immediately.
- Substitute for the Quest peanut butter protein powder are another brand. Or you can sub a natural peanut butter and chocolate or vanilla protein powder. I like Quest because it's low in carbs but you can use your favorite protein powder.
- You can also substitute regular unsweetened cocoa powder for the Divine cocoa powder. But I like this brand because it has no carbs and has a rich chocolate flavor.
- Lastly you can use whatever sweetener you wish and may not need it at all depending on your protein powder. I like the SweetLeaf Vanilla Stevia liquid because it's like add sweetness and vanilla extract all in one product.
