High Protein Chocolate Easter Eggs
Easter is here. For those with kids who celebrate or if you are kidult who appreciates still having fun, I have an idea for you. These high protein chocolate Easter eggs will take some of the “edge” off of the chocolate-egg-smorgasbord- induced-coma you typically endure while letting you unleash your creativity during bonding time with your kids.
What you will need is a spoon, a needle/pin, some small craft paint brushes, paint, eggs, your choice of flavoured protein powder, some chocolate, and a small funnel. You will also need a few other things like a microwave or stove, container or pot, glassware, water for mixing, and your fridge for cooling.
Take as many eggs as you want to use from the carton. Don’t waste any delicious egg protein and nutrient-rich goodness in the yolk so do the following over a bowl while keeping the innards for use later. Put the needle/pin at the top of the egg and tap it gently with the spoon. Do the same on the bottom of the egg but make the hole big enough that the funnel tip can fit. Be careful so you don’t hit too hard and crack the hold shell.
Paint your eggshells as desired and let dry. Depending on the number of decorated high protein chocolate Easter eggs you want to make, melt your chocolate and put in 1-2 scoops of your fave protein powder. Mix well. If it is a bit too thick to pour, add some water to the protein powder melted chocolate mix and stir. It should still be fairly thick but you don’t want it too “liquid-ish” or it will pass right through the eggshells.
Put the funnel tip into the hole and hold with your other finger on the small hole. You may even tape the hole gently so nothing comes out. Pour your chocolate protein mix into the egg. Put the filled shell on a plate or in a bowl and immediately put it in the fridge to set and harden.
We left it for the day but I don’t think it should take even more than 30-45 minutes.
BOOM there you go!
A post-workout snack to fulfill your chocolate cravings and your muscles cravings for recovery protein 🙂
