Earth Day Recipe: High-Protein PlantYourDay® ‘Dirt’ Cup
With nutritious ingredients and low waste, this treat is perfect for April 22nd.
April is a month full of holidays and important observances. One of those is Earth Day! There are many ways to celebrate this acknowledgement of the planet and environment we appreciate so much. But one healthy and cute idea for the whole family is to create a nutritious, high-protein “dirt” cup! Keep reading to discover the perfect Earth Day recipe!
Plant Your Day®
Before we jump into the recipe, we simply must sing the praises of our Plant Your Day® protein powder. You can use any protein powder of choice for this recipe, but our formula is designed to benefit in myriad ways. Made with organic pumpkin and pea protein, the plant-based and vegan powder is ideal for gut health and balanced skin.
It boasts 110 calories, 17 grams of protein, only 1 gram of sugar, and 2 grams of fat per serving. Plus, it’s pH balancing and alkalizing.
Oh, and don’t forget the delicious chocolate flavor, which brings us back to our recipe!
1. Mix the protein powder, Greek yogurt, cocoa powder, and milk in a large bowl to create our healthy version of chocolate pudding.
2. Spoon the mixture into individual cups (clear ones work best to enjoy the full visual of this fun snack).
3. Top each pudding cup with the crushed Oreo cookie bits and a few gummies resting above them.
We hope this healthy Earth Day recipe helps you to acknowledge April 22nd in style. In the spirit of the observance, don’t forget to reuse or recycle any relevant packaging!
