Chocolate Quinoa Protein Pudding (Oh My, Healthy and Delicious!)

Chocolate Quinoa Protein Pudding

Take that, rice pudding! Quinoa pudding is the new cool kid on this block. I’ve had this recipe for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert – quinoa doesn’t judge! Besides, rice just can’t compete with the protein and texture quinoa provides, especially when you add in a little plant-based protein that adds a bonus 25g of multi-source protein and BCAAs.

Makes 4 Servings



  1. Combine quinoa, coconut milk and maple syrup in a medium saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring often, until quinoa has cooked through and milk has started to thicken.
  2. Cool quinoa. Stir in Vega Sport Performance Protein and cocoa powder.
  3. Serve quinoa with coconut flakes and maca chocolate.

This chocolatey treat is one of my fave go-to treats after a workout. If you’re looking for more recipes, meal plans and training guides take a look at these running and strength guides from Vega.
