Wish your chocolate packed a protein punch? Satisfy your sweet tooth while fuelling gains with this easy recipe.
To some people, the idea of ‘protein chocolate’ is a bit… out there. You might ask, “why combine a supplement like protein with a yummy dessert like chocolate?” Why not? By combining protein with chocolate, you end up with a sweet treat that’s more filling and better for you. You can make your own protein chocolate using any type of chocolate you like: white, dark, milk, vegan, sugar free… anything goes.
All you need for this recipe is your favourite chocolate bar, a scoop of whey protein, and your favourite extras (ideally nuts, but seeds or dried fruit work, too). Even if you’re thinking, “I’d rather just have some chicken and a bit of regular chocolate on the side, thanks,” give this a shot anyway, okay? It’s fun! Plus, trying it will inspire you to customise your own perfect slab of chocolatey deliciousness.
