Looking for a sweet treat with some amazing health benefits? I’ve got you covered.
I love using VIIVA’s protein powder because it is loaded with all kinds of health benefits and tastes great. It is an ideal breakfast because of its nutritional value, but when you add in some sweet ingredients, it becomes a delicious dessert!
For this recipe we will be using VIIVA’s Chocolate Protein. It is a vegan protein powder with 20 grams of plant-based protein. It is also soy free and gluten free!
Some of the benefits of using a protein powder are:
- Keeps you feeling full throughout the day
- Delivers sustained energy
- Flushes fat
- Promotes good heart health
- Improves second brain (ENS System) health
- Aids in healthy weight loss and maintenance

Especially if you usually aren’t a fan of protein shakes, this is a recipe you NEED to try. Created by @Nicole_thenomad, this recipe is the ULTIMATE protein-packed dessert.
