Hot summer days (and nights!) practically beg for a cold, creamy treat, but before you succumb to a few scoops of ice cream, give this high-protein frozen pudding a try. Devel­oped by Ashley Farr, a 28-year-old former teacher turned trainer, new mom, and Army wife, it’s made with unsweetened almond milk, chocolate/peanut-butter casein, and canned pumpkin. Packed with 28 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber, it will keep you feeling full for hours while also satisfying your sweet tooth. Freeze the pudding for about an hour for a perfect summertime snack.


  • ½–⅔ cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 scoop chocolate peanut butter casein
  • ⅓ cup canned pumpkin
  • Dash cinnamon
  • 2 dropperfuls liquid vanilla stevia (or 2 tsp stevia)
  • 1–2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4–5 chopped pecans
  • 1 tbsp dark chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1 tbsp shredded coconut (optional)
