Yes I'm a trainer, but sometimes I just want dessert for breakfast. Am I the only one? My Silver Fern Protein Mug Cake is the best way to enjoy something truly decadent while getting in my protein. The greatest part, there's no added sugar but this is perfectly sweet. I've been known to enjoy this for lunch, dinner or a snack as well!
Thanks to Cenavi Chocolate Flats, I only need 1/2 a square to get warm, gooey, melted chocolate that allows me to have this daily if I want. Bonus: you never feel deprived because this fits into a healthy lifestyle AND you'll still fit into your favorite jeans!
Here's the recipe...
Mindy's Silver Fern Mug Cake
- 1 Scoop Silver Fern Brand Chocolate Protein Shake (I've also used their Chocolate Mint flavor which is fabulous!)
- 1 tbsp, Coconut Flour
- .50 tsp, Baking Powder
- 1 tbsp(s), Cocoa, dry powder, unsweetened
- .25 Cup, Vanilla Coconut Milk (or milk of your choice)
- 1 tsp, Kakato Natural Sweetener (or sweetener of your choice)
- 1 large, Egg (or egg substitute)
- 1 tbsp. Almond Extract (or vanilla)
Add all the dry ingredients in a microwaveable mug or bowl, mix well. Add the milk, egg & extract into your dry ingredients and stir until well mixed. Microwave for 1:30 seconds.
Break up 1/2 a Cenavi Chocolate Flat to sprinkle on top (only 35 cals.). Optional: I add a dollop of SoDelicious Coconut Whipped Cream (only 30 cals.).

Rest assured this is husband and kid approved. Both the whey and plant-based protein powders work great, plus you can change the flavor to your preference. Silver Fern's vanilla and cookies & cream protein flavors are a big hit with my girls as well as the chocolate and chocolate mint (my personal fav)!
