This is a dessert in a glass — think black forest cake, Cherry Ripe chocolate bar or a mixed-berry chocolate pudding. It’s rich in protein from whey powder and antioxidants from berries and cacao powder.
- 1 cup of frozen mixed berries
1 cup coconut milk
2 tbsp whey protein powder
1 tsp raw cacao or cocoa powder
1 tsp sugar-free mixed berry jam
Dark chocolate shavings
Process in a blender until smooth and thick. Add a little water if using chilled coconut milk, which tends to thicken in the fridge.
