Welcome to my new favourite protein snack/dessert.. Protein Dynamix DynaPro Mousse!! And I may as well let you know about the cheeky NIC20 20% off discount code straight away, just incase you want to join me in the chocolatey/strawberry goodness ;).
Protein Dynamix is a fairly new brand to the protein market but my word have they done it right. I’ve already mentioned my love for the Vanilla Ice-cream Whey Protein in my 2014 favourites and now I’m declaring my love for the Chocolate Brownie (& Strawberry Milkshake!!) Protein Mousse..
DynaPro™ Mousse is a luxurious mousse style dessert packed with slow release protein to support the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. DynaPro™ Mousse is a combination of Milk Protein Concentrate and Calcium Caseinate and is ideal for use before bed or in-between meals. The high protein formulation (containing over 30g protein/serving when made with skimmed milk) has been created to provide a sustained supply of protein and amino acids, which are recognised as the building blocks of muscle tissue and keeping us fuller for longer!
The main ingredients are DynaPro™ Sustain Complex (Milk Protein Concentrate, Calcium Caseinate, Emulsifier [Soya Lecithin] and Skimmed Milk Powder and it honestly tastes INCREDIBLE. The texture is exactly like a mousse and you can change the consistency by adding more or less liquid (I personally like to mix the powder with milk or a milk alternative rather than water).
To make the mousse simply:
- Mix 40g (1 ½ scoops) of the powder in a bowl with 200ml of water/milk and hand whisk until combined (I have used an electric whisk before for this!).
- Place the bowl in a refrigerator and allow to set for 15-20 minutes.
- Enjoy with frozen berries or chopped banana (my choice!) :)!
This weekend I decided to get creative with the mousse and create a delicious (healthy!) protein cheesecake recipe.. it honestly tastes amazing and is perfect for a ‘guilt-free’ dessert. It’s no bake & uses minimal ingredients .. And if you make it just before you eat dinner it will be ready for dessert!
