Coated in chocolate and filled with a deliciously creamy yoghurt centre, these high-protein clusters are the perfect frozen treat for summer afternoons.
In the mood for a sweet snack that sorts your midday munchies but keeps you on track with your macro plan? @healthy_floflo has got you with yet another incredibly simple healthy treat idea.
All you need is your favourite flavour of Impact Whey Protein, Greek yoghurt, blueberries, and a little dark chocolate. Of course, if you’re as obsessed with peanut butter as I am, then you won’t want to miss out on adding a generous spoon of that to the centre, too. The results are so, so worth it.
You’ll want a batch of these in your freezer at all times, trust me on that.
In a bowl, combine the yoghurt and vanilla protein powder until you have a smooth mixture.
Add the blueberries and gently mix them through.
Prepare a tray with a sheet of baking paper. Spoon clusters of the yoghurt blueberry mixture on to the baking paper.
Freeze for 2-3 hours or until solid.
Once set, remove from the freezer and gently add a teaspoon of peanut butter to the top of each yoghurt cluster. Place back in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to allow the peanut butter to harden into a disc.
Meanwhile, melt the dark chocolate in the microwave. Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until fully melted (this should take about 2 minutes).
Dip the frozen clusters in the melted chocolates — quickly, so they don’t melt. Use a fork to help flip and remove them from the chocolate easily.
Place each coated cluster back on to the lined tray and add a few extra toppings. Flo’s used desiccated coconut for extra crunch and flavour.
Once the toppings have been added, place the clusters back in the freezer for a few minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
Enjoy immediately or keep in the freezer for when you need a cool and creamy pick-me-up.
