Chocolate Mocha Double Protein Gummies
The holidays have come and gone, and like most people, the hubby and I made a lot of unwise food choices. We started the new year off with a “healthy eating plan” and are making wiser choices! It is going quite well, however my sweet tooth always tries to talk me into making delicious desserts and snacks. That is why I made this recipe for Chocolate Mocha Double Protein Gummies! They are a sweet, smart treat and a great snack to have on hand. They contain plant-based protein, as well as protein from the gelatin, so it’s a double dose!
I have spent an embarassing amount of time in the protein powder section at the store, comparing labels, reading ingredients, and debating which is the best product. I wanted a protein powder with a list of clean ingredients, organic, plant-based, that I felt comfortable using. I am so happy with Purely Inspired® organic protein powder, available at Walmart. It tastes simply delicious in my protein gummies, a quick shake, or even in baked goods. (There is a delicious vanilla flavor, too!) I love it also because it is 100% plant based, the ONLY truly organic USDA approved plant-based protein powder, contains no artificial flavor or coloring, and is very versatile.
These gummies store well in the fridge, and you can pop them out whenever you’d like! Kids love them, too! (But remember that they do have coffee/caffeine in them..haha!)
