Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberry Protein Bites Recipe

Sometimes, you just need something that’s easy to make, satisfying, and looks (and tastes) about as close to a “real” treat as possible.

I was having one of those days recently. I had a massive sweet tooth, but really wanted to eat something healthier than the actual chocolate truffles lurking in my treat cupboard (yes, I have a treat cupboard. It’s always overflowing with protein bars and chocolate and other goodness).

I was also feeling pretty lazy, and didn’t want to make some big production or overly mess up my kitchen. So I looked in the fridge, and there were some strawberries waiting to be eaten. I thought… what if I put these in a protein bite? And that’s how these protein bites were made.

Give them a shot! You can also substitute the fruit for whatever you like—I’d imagine blueberries or raspberries would be especially delicious as well.

Here’s the strawberry protein bites recipe:

Ingredients:

1/4 cup strawberry (or vanilla) whey protein powder
3 Tbsp coconut flour
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or whatever milk you prefer)
About 1/4 bar dark chocolate (I used 85%)
1-2 large strawberries, chopped

Directions:

Mix the protein powder, coconut flour, and almond milk in a medium sized bowl. It should be a nice little paste.

Next, chop your strawberries into small, bite sized pieces. If you want the protein bites to be chunkier, make the pieces bigger—if you want it all to blend together, chop them up nice and small. Add the strawberries to the mixture.

Form the strawberry paste into five bites, then melt your chocolate in either the microwave or on the stovetop. Dip the bites into the chocolate, then place on wax paper so they don’t stick to your countertop (important!).

Place the bites in the refrigerator and let chill for at least an hour or more. You can also try and freeze them—they turn out pretty yummy that way! Either way, I’d highly recommend you eat them chilled as they turn into a little bit of a messy mush otherwise.

Bon appétit!

    Sounds good, but I’m sure a cruelty-free plant-based protein powder could be used too.
    Dairy is so cruel to cows and calves and contains blood and pus. Ick.
