Delicious, nutritious, filling, and the best breakfast/snack/dessert to beat the heat!
How was your week? Hope that it was sweet and not too stressful. I’ve just started my summer break a few days ago, and these few days have not been productive at allll – mostly spent in bed almost the entire day binge watching Youtube Videos, going out occasionally for some good food or a short run.
Feeling kind of guilty for being so unproductive, but also a much needed break from school!
Been also trying to start experimenting with more food in the kitchen and developing some new and original recipes for you guys! Being in the kitchen feels like a second home to me, I feel so comfortable and content 🙂
One of the first simple recipes that I feel that is good enough to share with you guys (a milestone achievement, if I may say,) is this Chocolate Protein Fluff! It’s packed with the ideal amount of protein and carbs for the perfect post-run or post-workout snack. So delicious, creamy, and soo ideal for this HOT summer heat!
This protein fluff is made with:
Ripe Bananas (frozen)
Some type of liquid (water, milk etc. – I used hazelnut milk, my current fav)
Protein Powder (I used Quest Chocolate Milkshake flavour – bought on Redmart!)
That’s all! Literally takes 4 ingredients and less than 5 minutes to make. All you need is a food processor/powerful blender. For me, they’re a great post gym snack, coming in at around 130 calories per serving.
If you end up baking this, tag me on instagram @a.runners.fuel ; I would LOVE to see your creations!
Chocolate Protein Fluff
1/2 a large banana (frozen)
a dash of hazelnut milk, or any milk/liquid of your preference
~10 ice cubes
1/2 scoop Quest Chocolate Milkshake Protein Powder (or any of your own choice!)
- Blend the ice cubes in food processor until fine consistency
- Add the rest of the ingredients and blend, adding milk as needed. You may need to scrape off the sides a few times and reblend, just be patient!
- Decorate! I topped mine with frozen strawberries, bananas, and chia seeds.
