Do you know this scenario?
You ate super healthy all day, had a great workout, ate a nourishing dinner but then out of the blue the sugar cravings start…
Must eat sugar….
Stop right there!!!!
No need to ruin a whole day of healthy eating by slamming a carton of ice cream or a sleeve of cookies. You are better than that ;)
Whats the solution? My low-calorie, sugar-free Mint Chocolate Pudding silly!
This 5 ingredient wonder can be made in large amounts so you will be prepared the next time you have a late night craving.
Heres the line up:
Unsweetened Almond Milk- 40 Calories and zero sugars for 1 cup
Grass Fed Gelatin – 25 calories for 1 Tbl and a great source of collagen for healthy skin, bones, and nails. I really love Grass Lakes Gelatin because it is sourced from grass-fed beef cows and is Kosher.
Raw Cacao – Low Calorie high fiber superfood packed with antioxidants and deep chocolate flavor.
Stevia – Low calorie sugar-free sweetener
Pure Peppermint Extract – No calories and huge punch of minty flavor which also aids in digestion
