Protein Fudge. Yes, this is real.

Soooo….until I can have some MNS, Crave Check, & Slim (when I’m done nursing), I’m going to have to continue to find healthier alternatives to satisfy my sweet tooth. I don’t eat sweets every day, but I do make things for the family a couple times a week.  FYI: I am seriously not kidding that my sweet tooth totally went away when I was consistently using those products, so if you’re not pregnant/nursing and you have a sweet tooth, stop what you’re doing and order them ASAP! You’ll thank me.

Anyway, my friend James posted a picture of some of this protein fudge he made & I decided to give it a shot tonight since I had all of the ingredients on hand. Y’all, it is CRAZY delicious!! I’m pretty sure of everything I’ve made, this is my favorite so far. Jonathan LOVED it too! (He gets to take Carb-Ease before.) You only need a little bit to satisfy you too, and it’s packed with protein & nutrients.

P.S. Don’t I have the cutest little helper? He loves to be right in the action anytime I’m making treats. He cleans up any chocolate chips that are “accidentally” spilled on the counter for me.

Here’s what you’ll need.

Ingredients:

  • 1 AdvoCare meal replacement shake (any flavor will work, but I used white choc peppermint *MY FAVVVE!*, pumpkin, mint chocolate brownie, and chocolate peanut butter brownie
  • 1/4 c Refined Coconut Oil
  • small handful of Chocolate Chips (I like “Enjoy Life” brand)
  • 3 TBSP (Organic) Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Parchment Paper

Directions:

Pour meal replacement shake contents into a mixing bowl. Add 1/4 c melted (refined) coconut oil, 3 TBSP pure maple syrup, 1 tsp of vanilla extract, and a few chocolate chips. Mix together. Pour onto parchment paper in a small baking dish. Place in freezer for about 30 min, remove, cut into squares using a pizza cutter. Store in freezer. (or forget to take it out after 30 minutes like I did…oops! I got distracted playing with this cutie.)

*Also, the pumpkin, mint chocolate brownie shakes & white chocolate peppermint shakes are all seasonal products. The peppermint shakes are making a comeback SOON, but till then you will get a FREE sample from AdvoCare when you order a box of GINGERBREAD BARS!! These are HANDS DOWN one of our favorite products! (We MAJORLY stock up so we have enough to last us through the whole year and because they always sell out pretty quickly.) Gingerbread bars have 11 g of protein, so they’re a pretty healthy snack alternative that totally feels like a cheat during the holidays. They are especially yummy slightly warmed up and paired with Coffecino,

ENJOY!

I noticed that taking L-glutamine powder has seriously helped my sweet tooth. I take a tsp morning and night. Really, it works, but I don't know how long it takes it to kick in or if you can take it while nursing.
