Whipped Chocolate Protein Frosting

Whipped Chocolate Protein FrostingA thick, rich and creamy chocolate frosting that is delicious?  Easy.  But what about one that is HEALTHY, HIGH IN PROTEIN, and FREE OF REFINED SUGAR and this-can’t-be-good-for-me-but-it-really-is?  Yes, oh yes. This is the perfect topping for any of my cakes, and especially my latest and greatest Healthy Single-Serving Mocha Microwave Mug Cake.  But of course, no one would be the wiser if you just wanted to eat it straight off of the spoon.  And I certainly wouldn’t blame you.

Honestly, this post only exists to share the recipe I created to pair with my mug cake.  So I won’t bore you with mundane details of my life (although today DID feature a really awesome leg day workout and oh, I did see The Martian on the weekend and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was).

On to the chocolate!
