Mint Swirl Wheyhey Protein Chocolate Chunks

Mint Swirl Wheyhey Protein Chocolate Chunks

To get in the festive spirit, Pamela has created some delicious Mint Swirl Protein Chocolate Chunks!

If there’s one thing I’m sure a lot of you couldn’t live without, especially when sticking to a clean living lifestyle, it’s chocolate. Thanks to a special delivery from the guys at Wheyhey protein ice cream, I was determined to try making my own using their Chocolate ice cream and incorporating it into one of my other all-time favourite flavours – MINT!

The result is a colourful, indulgent treat packed full of protein – the perfect sweet treat around Christmas!

For the Chocolate Protein mixture

  • 1 small tub Wheyhey Chocolate whey protein ice cream
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil
  • 4 tsp raw cacao powder (I used Kaizen Living)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp Sugar free syrup

Put all of the ingredients in a small pan and melt over a low heat, stirring well then whisking as everything turns to liquid until it is all combined. Pour into a container or tray and put in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes until hardened.

For the Mint Swirl

  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp mint extract
  • 1 tsp Sugar free syrup
  • 1-2 tbsp raw spirulina powder
  • 25g cashew nuts
  • Handful of cacao nibs, to decorate

Melt the coconut oil, remove from heat then add the spirulina, mint extract and Sugar free syrup. Put the cashews in a high-power blender and pour in the green mixture – blitz it well until smooth and it looks a vibrant green colour.

Prep your chocolate!

You can wait until the chocolate layer is completely hardened and smooth over the mint mixture so it sits on top for a two-tone effect, or do what I did and while it is still relatively soft, swirl in the mixture to create a marbled effect. Leave in the freezer for 4 hours maximum until completely set.

When you’re ready to indulge, remove from the freezer about 5-10 minutes before, slice up into chunks and devour – quickly, as it will melt!

We’d love to see how your Christmas recipes go @SpamellaB and @WheyheyOfficial
