Protein Chocolate

I love nothing more than when JS asks if there is any dessert and then heading into the kitchen and being able to make him a ‘sweet treat’ that is not packed of sugar and actually nourishes your body.

This recipe contains two great sources of protein, from the protein powder and the peanut butter.  Proteins are the main building blocks of the body. They are used to make muscles, organs, tendons and skin. We also use protein to make enzymes, hormones and lots of tiny molecules that make our bodies work.  So a pretty important nutrient.  And it also helps us to stay full for longer which is great for satiety.

Ingredients

  • 4 scoops of Nuzest Vanilla Protein
  • 4 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp cacao

Method

  1. Gently melt the coconut oil and mix together with the other ingredients.
  2. Pour into a container and freeze to set.  This chocolate can also be kept in the fridge.

Enjoy! x
