chocnilla swirl-tastic

chocnilla swirl-tastic

i couldn’t think of a name for the best snack/dessert recipe i’ve ever made so chocnilla swirl-tastic came to mind.

but the name does these babies ZERO justice.

just besides the fact that you’re like “chocnilla?” whatdafuq?

sounds like a dinosaur?

no, just me?… yeah…

but forreals, they’re so damn good, and so easy.

and they’re SLAP-tastic.  maybe that’s why i thought of swirl-tastic & added a little ‘flava’ to it because anything made with SLAP protein powder is FANTASTIC, #duh.

yeah, i used a hashtag. and yes i’m rambling on per usual.

let’s get to the recipe, shall we?!

quick note: are you one of those people who sometimes get in that super serious life canundrum  and cannot decide between chocolate or vanilla?

well here i am to save the day! because these sweet, protein packed, bites contain BOTH vanilla and chocolate and you can taste the differnece between both in each bite. so it’s not like “chocolatevanilla-ish” tasting. literally one bite will be chocolate-y and the other half (if you don’t shove it in your mouth all at once) is vanilla-y. WIN.

did that make sense? whateva if not, because you’ll feel me in a moment.

step 6: after firm, take them out, and split each ball in half of both flavors.  then simply flatten each out and “combine” it with the opposite flavor! to create a SWIRL-tastic bite of chocolate and vanilla!!

make sure to keep them in the fridge, so that way the room-temperature doesn’t make them all soft and mushy, no bueno.

i mean.. seriously.. how heavenly do these look?  and so easy, right?! you can use almond butter if you want also, i just used the jiff whipped because it’s lower in calories/carbs/fat/protein; aka: MACRO FRIENDLY for all my macro counters out there. whoop whoop!

so if you end up with 15 balls total (mixed) these little beauties macros are:
Fat-2
Carbs-6
Protein-4

i mean.. get outta town, right?!  so crushing 3 in a row,  really isn’t that bad and totally guilt-free!

now, excuse me while i leave my desk and head to the fridge to grab a few for myself to much on!
