Who said you can’t enjoy dessert on a diet? Thanks to the amazing variety of flavours available with Luxe Fitness protein powders and incredible nutrients found in so many natural, healthy foods, you can create an abundance of sweet treats to enjoy after a healthy dinner. But before we share with you some of our favourite recipes, it’s important you know what to look for in the supermarkets so that you can jam as much protein as possible into your puds.
Some high protein ingredients to look out for are:
- Peanut butter / peanuts
- Almonds / almond milk
- Greek yogurt
All of these ingredients are low in cost and easy to find. So, without further delay, here are some of our favourite recipes for you to try:
