PrairieHarpy's MegaChocolate Protein FudgeSubmitted by: PRAIRIEHARPY
IntroductionA decadent hit of protein loaded chocolate! A decadent hit of protein loaded chocolate!
2.5 scoops Lean Dessert Chocolate Protein powder. (Your favorite chocolate protein powder will likely also work. Keep it lower cal and carb.)
4 tbsp butter
6 oz Philadelphia Neufchatel
2.5 squares Girhardeli Baking Chocolate. (Your favorite baking chocolate will probably work here... keep it sugar free.)
1 tsp Pure Vanilla extract.
Remove from heat, let cool for 1 minute, then add the rest of the ingredients.
STIR STIR STIR. It will seem impossible at first, but if you keep at it, I promise you will end up with a nice chocolatey fudgy texture. Switch hands now and then to get resistance training in both arms. :)
Now you can put the whole thing into a tupperware container in the fridge and just take a spoonful out once a day, or you can shape it and put it in the freezer to make really decadent fudge pieces. Or you can refrigerate and then shape and freeze. That might be a little easier. The longer it sits in the cold, the better it gets!
This is NOT a low calorie food. Eat it in moderate amounts and preferably only when you need a protein bump or are just dying for some chocolate.
I find the Lean Dessert adds a creaminess that other protein powders don't, but not so much that using your own preferred brand will ruin anything. Be experimental!
