Quinoa Chocolate Pudding

Finally! A chocolatey, macro-friendly dessert that is as delicious as it is nutritious. It may seem a little weird to use quinoa in a dessert, but trust me, the quinoa adds a lovely nutty flavor while providing the perfect pudding jiggle. Plus, it’s packed with vitamin B and complete proteins.


  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions.
  2. When quinoa is cooked, combine all the ingredients in a blender and blitz until creamy and incorporated. The mixture will thicken as it cools.
  3. Top with blueberries, chocolate chips, coconut flakes or whatever else fits your tastes and macros!

*The macros for this recipe were calculated using BioX chocolate peanut butter whey protein complex. While you can use any protein powder you like, a whey protein complex (as opposed to a whey protein isolate) will yield a thicker texture.

    Using quinoa for a chocolaty dessert reminds me of the black bean chocolate cake I had last weekend! I'll have to send in that recipe some time, huh?

    I love sweet treats. But more than that, I love exploring sweet treats that fit my macros! This quinoa chocolate pudding was superb. I have never thought of using quinoa in dessert before—I used Naked PB so I had to add a little sugar free vanilla pudding to heighten the sweetness.
