A second chance.
Truth be told, I am not a fan of protein powders. We’ve just never really “mixed well” together. I’d try different blends in smoothies and they always left a grainy feel in my mouth. Not really what you’re going for when you’re downing your morning smoothie.
But I believe that sometimes it’s a good idea to try again. Your taste buds change, what your body needs changes, and plus, trying again helps keep you from being too picky.
So when Sunwarrior sent me a sampling of their raw vegan protein blends, I was determined to find a satisfactory way to include them in my diet. And this simple dessert goes beyond satisfactory. It’s pretty dang good.
Most people add their protein powders into smoothies, and as much as I love smoothies, I have plenty of those on my site, so I decided to go for something a little less traditional.
Thankfully, it’s that wonderful time of year when it’s acceptable to be thinking about everything dessert, so I decided it must be a sign that I was supposed to make something sweet out of the protein powders.
As soon as these little beauties came out of the freezer I began drooling over them. Adding the ganache drizzle made them almost irresistible during our little photo shoot.
Passing the test.
When I handed a finished product to my husband (my ultimate taste tester) he announced: “I love protein powder!” And as I was editing the photos, my 8-year old peeked over my shoulder and reminisced, “Ohhh, those were soooo good! I wish you’d made more of them.”
I guess that means my protein powder comeback dessert was a success. 😉
If your relationship with protein powder has been on the down and out (like mine), I’d encourage you to give Sunwarrior’s blends a try. All their blends are made from rich, raw, plant-based protein sources and boast a complete amino acid profile.
And, of course, give these Peanut Butter Vanilla Protein Truffles with Chocolate Ganache a try. I can guarantee you won’t regret it! 😉
