Never fear, this chocolatey dessert is the perfect solution. Made in a mug in the microwave, this high protein cake with a melting chocolate centre will help you hit your protein goals and save you from slaving away in the kitchen - that’s what we call a win win situation!

Sweet Like Chocolate Shake
How could we do a chocolate recipe round-up without featuring one of the Neat Café's most popular shakes? The combination of chocolate, peanut butter and hazelnut milk gives it a taste reminiscent of a well-known chocolate hazelnut spread starting with N! The added banana thickens it and if you’re feeling really special, you can freeze your banana ahead of time and make it extra dense and cool. Find the recipe, here.
Nutella Protein Balls
Is there any better combination than Nutella and peanut butter? These chocolatey bites might sound naughty, but they are packed with the protein you need for a pre or post workout snack. They are also super quick to make and will last in the fridge for a week. Find the recipe, here.
