Boy, that title is a mouthful, isn't it? I couldn't think of anything shorter that could describe how incredible this cake is! Each serving is packed with vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber, and other healthy goodness that promotes health and even weight loss if that's your goal. I'm personally using it to build muscle, so I'm actually maintaining weight right now while losing inches around my waist, hips, and arms.
I know that picture isn't the most beautiful or Pinterest-worthy but hey, I'm a health coach, not a food blogger. Food photography is not my forte.
Now, I don't know about you, but I really don't like when I look for a recipe and have to scroll for 5 minutes to the bottom of the page so that I can skip the author's life story and touching story about how she used to make that same recipe with her grandmother as a little girl... so I'll spare you.
Here is my recipe for this delicious Triple Chocolate Mug Cake.
2 scoops of Lean nutritional powder (14 meals are donated to Feeding America with every purchase of this specific protein powder. There is also vanilla flavored powder.)
1 heaping tablespoon of organic cacao powder
A handful of chocolate chips (optional)
Enough almond milk to make a pudding consistency
Mix all ingredients together in a mug.
Microwave for 30-90 seconds, depending on what consistency you prefer. 30 seconds ends up like a lava cake, 60 seconds is perfectly moist and airy, 90 seconds is a bit more dense.
Top with whipped cream.
Comment below and let me know what you think! If you change up the flavors, I'd love to hear about it! With the vanilla powder, I've made the mix and blended it with fresh strawberries before microwaving it. With the chocolate powder, I've also swirled in peanut butter for a delicious Reece's-inspired cake. The possibilities are endless!
