Semolina pudding. Cream of wheat. Sweet grits. No matter what you call it, this comfort food catapults us all straight back to our childhood. And here’s a magic trick that even grown-ups can believe in: this sugary sweetness has gotten a glow up that turns it into a true fitness treat. The power of our Whey Protein turns this childhood dessert into a creamy, dreamy source of extra protein for after your workout or anytime during the day!  


  • Pour the almond milk into a small pot. Gently bring to a boil, stirring occasionally to keep from scalding.
  • Meanwhile, mix the water and Whey Protein (or Vegan Protein) in a shaker or a bowl until they yield a smooth shake.
  • When the almond milk has come to a boil, turn down the heat immediately. Stir in the semolina.
  • Add the protein shake to the pot. Bring back to a boil, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens.
  • Remove from the heat. Cover and let rest for 5 minutes.
  • Serve the protein sweet grits in a bowl. Top with cherries and cinnamon.
  • Enjoy!
