Clean Eating #86: Vanilla Protein Coconut Pudding

Vanilla Protein Coconut Pudding

4-5 cups of skim milk or coconut milk
1/4 c of vanilla protein powder (We used the Attain Vanilla powder from Meleluca, but you can use whatever you have on hand.  I've also used other kinds with similar results)
1/4 cup of arrowroot powder
1/8 cup of xylitol/Stevia
1/4 cup of coconut
1/4 cup of coconut, toasted
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Blend milk, arrowroot powder, xylitol and protein powder in the blender
Add to a sauce pan on the stove on medium heat
Stirring occasionally, heat to a slow boil.
**You will need to stir more often as it gets hotter.
Once it comes to a rolling boil, remove from heat and put in serving bowls.
If you like, you can spread some coconut on a pan and put it under the broiler for a minute or two to toast it as a nice topping for the serving bowls.

Squatch (the boy who said before, "Mom, I love your real meals, but the healthy dessert suck.") Said, "Man, Mom.  This is by far the best healthy dessert you've made yet... wait.  Is this healthy?"
Me, "Yes, its healthy, it actually has protein in it."
Squatch, "Oh then, yeah, its good."
