Mighty Nut Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Pudding + Giveaway

Welcome back for another week of Wild Workout Wednesday!  Each week I link up with Annmarie from The Fit Foodie Mama, Michelle from Fruition Fitness and Nicole from Fitful Focus to bring you a fun link up filled with posts that include workouts, recipes, motivation and so much more!  If you have a fitness or healthy living post we would love to have you link up with us.  If not, grab your coffee and be ready to share, pin and tweet some great workouts, recipes, fit tips and more!

I am sorry I missed you all last week, I was in Florida having fun with my family at Disney World.  I will do a post later this week and tell you all about it!  There are so many things that I love about being a Sweat Pink Ambassador!  I have met so many wonderful blogger and fitness friends, all of my Wild Workout Wednesday co-hostesses are Sweat Pink ambassadors.  I also get to participate in fun fitness challenges and share them on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.  Another awesome benefit is getting to try new products and offer giveaways of those products.  This week I want to share with you a new product from Peanut Butter & Co called Mighty Nut Powered Peanut Butter.  This post is sponsored by Mighty Nut, I was also sent product to try in exchange for a review.  All opinions are my own.

Since I LOVE chocolate I naturally chose the chocolate flavor in addition to the regular peanut butter.  I am working on a recipe for some yummy peanut butter protein bars and will share that as soon as it is perfected.  We were asked to come up with a healthy snack idea!  I love snacks.  One thing that I have been on the hunt for is a good protein pudding.  I have tried a few out there, but they always fell a little short of my expectations.  When I got my Mighty Nut in the mail I was inspired to make my own chocolate protein pudding.  I am always looking to add more protein to my day and if it happens to include chocolate then it is a bonus!  One thing that I love about the Mighty Nut Powdered peanut butter is the lower fat content.  Since I track my macros, it is nice to add the peanut butter flavor without the added fat.  It also is lower in calories than regular peanut butter as well, only 45 calories per serving.  So you get that great peanut butter flavor without all the fat and calories!  I also love that it has 5g of protein so it helps to up the protein in the recipes or shakes you are making.  It is also really versatile, it can be used in place of regular peanut butter, in shakes or smoothies, and for baking.  I loved how it tasted in my smoothies, it added the right amount of peanut butter taste and blended nicely.  I am excited to bake with it for my next recipe I will share.  Until then you have to try this Mighty Nut Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Pudding, you are going to love it!
