Inspired by Peanut Butter Energy Bites, I decided to use a little bit of creativity to add a protein twist to this tasty and very easy-to-make recipe! Warning: You all are probably going to be reading a lot about Peanut Butter coming up. I’m on quest to free up some cabinet space!
When the wonderful Jean at NeoCell offered to send me Belgian Chocolate Collagen Sport Whey Isolate Complex to try, I was extremely excited! I was even more surprised when a full-sized jar of protein powder made it’s way to my front door. The folks at NeoCell are extremely generous! While exchanging e-mails with Jean, she had indicated that she sprinkled some of this protein powder over iced-coffee. I absolutely loved this idea. It was the perfect way to get protein without having to break out the blender and make shake or smoothie.
The Belgian chocolate taste is amazing and added some additional flavor to my iced-coffee. I’ve also made numerous smoothies and shakes with NeoCell and have absolutely loved it. I honestly never felt like I was drinking a protein-packed drink. My drinks ended up tasting more like a dessert from an ice cream place — which was AMAZING. This protein powder tastes great and kept me feeling full, which made it the perfect mid-morning snack before meeting that lasted through lunch time!
I give NeoCell two thumbs up! And as an added bonus, I’ve discovered that baking with protein powder (great tasting protein powder) can be extremely fun!
