Monday Munchies: Double Choc-Mint Protein Shake & CHObites




This week's Monday Munchies is not for one recipe, but three: Peppermint Protein Chocolates, Double Choc-Mint CHOBites and a Choc Mint Protein Shake. All are full of good fats, high in protein and contain no added sugar.

It may seem like a lot of work, but bare with me, it's worth it in the end.

The best part is that no cooking is required, just cooling in the fridge/freezer, so you can get on with other things while you wait for recipes one and two to set.

I find that these Choc-Mint CHObites add some creaminess which is usually lacking when protein powders are mixed with water. Not only that, but they add texture, thickening the mixture and adding an extra hit of protein. All bonuses in my book!
