Whether you're a dancer like myself, or keen gym goer, your protein intake is something to be conscious about - we need protein to help preserve & build muscle!
I do this by supplementing my training with a protein powder, either shaken with milk or water.
Sometimes I like to be creative with how I use protein powder, by finding ways to mix it into my baked and raw treats, like my Lemon & Poppy Seed Muffins & Cookie Dough Protein Balls.
Here I have another clever way of using it, this time with my 'Power-Up Peanut Butter Bark.'
Love Alex. Xx

1 scoop vanilla protein powder of choice
¼ cup smooth 100% natural peanut butter
2 tbsp coconut oil
25g cacao butter
Pinch of salt
I like mulberries, pecans & cacao nibs, but feel free to choose your own.
In a small saucepan add the above ingredients expect the 'toppings'.
Gently heat & melt the ingredients until combined and smooth.
Pour the chocolate into a small lined container, or tray, and sprinkle with your desired toppings.
Allow to set in the refrigerator for at least an hour, before breaking into pieces.
