Hey everyone,

I clearly have a thing for recipe developing with all my favourite ingredients, and today saw me concoct something that tastes incredible!

This no added sugar high protein mocha protein log with chocolate probiotic icing is packed with:

  • Probiotics
  • Prebiotic fibres
  • Resistant starch
  • Protein
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Iodine, and
  • Antioxidants

It also can boast the claims:

  • No added sugar
  • Gluten free
  • Grain free
  • Low glycemic load
  • Nut free
  • And although not technically lactose free, because the lactose inside kefir is broken down by the bacteria present, many people who usually have an intolerance to lactose, can actually quite easily tolerate kefir.

I have shared the exact ingredients I used, however if you just want to use the one cacao throughout the recipe, or want to turn the whole recipe from mocha to chocolate by using a similar chocolate protein powder that could of course work well too!

As the heads up, it is very creamy and dense; it sits somewhere between being able to be broken into pieces and eaten with your hands to being able to be eaten with a spoon…so your call!
