Yesterday was a bit frustrating, and I was majorly in need of a run when I got home. Running is many things for me – joy, health, it keeps me feeling good emotionally, it keeps me feeling like me…and it is one of the best ways for me to get out frustrations and anger. I have just always found that it is hard to stay in a bad mood after you pound the pavement and work up a good sweat.
Last night’s run definitely disc what I needed it to, and I came home very much looking forward to a yummy post-run/dinner pudding.
I was intending to make apple pie pudding, but it was more like a spice pudding. It was so very perfect!
Into the blender went:
1 cup almond milk
2 dates to sweeten
1 scoop amazing grass chocolate green superfood
2 scoops vanilla hemp protein powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
3 big spoonfuls of Trader Joes chunky apples
1 tsp maple syrup
Blend till creamy. I heated up a few little pieces of my mom’s pumpkin bread that she made gluten-free, dairy-free and made with date sugar to accommodate my food sensitivities. My mom is awesome 🙂 I topped the pudding with the pumpkin bread and drizzled on some macadamia nut butter. Perfection!
