A video recipe!
If you’re not in the habit of having a high-carb post-workout meal, you may find these macros to be shocking. But this Post-Workout Rice Pudding is the perfect post-workout treat!
These are actually my post-workout macros after a heavy lifting session, but of course you can adjust the recipe to fit your needs. I used maple syrup as a sweetener here (intentionally for simple carbs), but you can certainly sub that out for stevia or any other natural sweetener. I used Jamie Eason’s vanilla whey protein, which is my absolute favorite vanilla whey! And I used Paige’s Homemade Vanilla, made with love. (and bourbon.)
The only downside to this Post-Workout Rice Pudding is that you have to stir the pot frequently as it simmers. But if you’re doing other meal-prep while it simmers, it won’t seem like a chore at all.
Give this delicious recipe a try! And look out for more of our videos. :)

A whey/casein blend like Quest protein would also work well here. I wouldn't recommend vegan proteins because of the flavor and texture.
