Ok, so you’ve probably just seen the holiday fudge recipe. While it is SO YUMMY, its still a bit higher in calories and sugar. But this recipe is a guilt free protein fudge so you can feel better about having it on a very regular basis! Its made with protein powder so you’re also getting some protein with it, and its low carb too! LOOK HOW YUMMY IT LOOKS! Warning–it melts fast so you’ll have to eat it quick (which shouldn’t be a problem!) I adapted this recipe from Alyson’s at Nourished Fitness ….a great idea indeed!
1 scoop Whey Gourmet Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Powder (or their Dreamy Chocolate would be awesome too)
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 Tbsp of coconut oil (for a light tasting Coconut Fudge) or 1/2 Tbsp natural peanut butter (for a PB Fudge)
2 tsp chopped walnuts
2 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk (or low fat milk)
In a small bowl, mix together the protein powder, cocoa powder, melted coconut oil or pb (melt in microwave). Stir until blended. Add in almond milk and stir until combined. Add in chopped walnuts. Freeze until set (about 30 minutes). Will be hard once it comes out of the freezer, but it thaws quickly. Enjoy!
