Protein Pear Pudding

Constipation tends to come and go during pregnancy, so there’s no need to be too concerned if your bowels feel a little off now and again. But when and if you do feel, well, stuck, this protein pear pudding is virtually guaranteed to get ya movin’. ⠀
6 ripe pears, washed & cubed (don’t remove peel!)⠀
6 tblsp gelatin protein powder (I like vital proteins)⠀
2 tblsp raw honey⠀
2 tblsp coconut oil⠀
1 1/2 cups water⠀
Cumin, cinnamon, and cloves to taste (optional)⠀
12 drops stevia (optional)⠀
How to: Into a large saucepan add 1/2 cup of water, honey, stevia, spices, and pears. Cook on medium heat for 10-15 min, or until pears are soft. Purée pears with an immersion blender or food processor. Return the mixture to the saucepan and keep warm on the lowest possible heat. In a small bowl, mix 1 cup of water and gelatin, stirring quickly so the gelatin doesn’t set. Pour the gelatin into the saucepan, stirring continuously until fully dissolved. Add coconut oil, allowing it to melt and blend evenly. Turn off the heat and let the mixture cool. Pour into 1 cup mason jars and seal with a lid; place in fridge for several hours until set. Pro tip: I like to leave these out for 15 min or so before eating, so the pudding softens a little. Recipe makes 6 servings.
