I’m not going to lie, it’s really hard to control my sweet tooth. After quite a bit of experimentation, I’ve finally nailed something edible enough to share. I like to call it Fitness Fudge. It falls into clean eating…sorta, but I definitely can make this fit into my macros. It’s pretty simple, try to be consistent with the ratios- if anything ditch the chocolate chips and add extra protein. I played around with it for a while, it’s fun to eat your mistakes!
- 1/4 cup Milk/Soy/Almond
- 1/4 cup or 1 Scoop of Chocolate Protein Powder
- 1/4 cup Natural Peanut Butter (creamy or crunchy)
- 1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chips

In a microwave safe bowl mix together the almond milk and chocolate protein powder, add in the peanut butter and chocolate chips, stir, and microwave for about 20 seconds or until the chocolate chips begin to melt slightly. Stir the mixture together and pour into a small glass dish. If you like chunks of chocolate in your fudge, skip the microwave! Since this recipe only makes about 6 pieces of fudge, I just poured the mixture into glass dish sprayed with a bit of baking spray or onto wax paper. Refrigerate about 45 minutes.
