I’m pretty obsessed with adding as much protein to all meals/snacks as possible, but admittedly I do get a little sick of meat, eggs, fish etc. Sometimes you just need that little sweet fix without all the guilt and WITH all the protein.
You might want to sit down for this because you may not beleive what I’m about to tell you….. Protein chocolate IS a thing. A real thing.
The amazing people at @cocoa.plus were so kind as to send me some goodies to try. I am officially in love. When you hear ‘proteion’ attached to any of your favourite foods, you automatically assume it’s going to be dry or have a weird after taste or something. NOT the case here.
Cocoa+ tastes exactly the same as a rich, high quality chocolate. You’d never know it contained over 27g of protein per 100g. This is whey protein isolate that’s infused into the chocolate – pure luxury without the guilt. I’ve been having a square or two each evening and it’s just enough to feel like you’ve had a treat. It’s also amazing for cooking – I whipped up these little banana-coconut-Choc clean icecream using a couple of smashed up squares and also these clean peanut butter cups! (I will post recipes if anyone is interested!) Basically, it’s an all round winner and you’re mad if you don’t stock your cupboards up with it. Everyone needs a treat sometimes and it’s better to reach for the high protein alternative to your usual sugary, non-nutritional fav’s.
You can order yours here (the ordinary Choc one is my fav but the crunch ones are all unreal) at Cocoa Plus.
Enjoy! Hels xxx
