What I love about this recipe:
- only 3 ingredients
- has about the same macros as a protein shake
- is made in the microwave
- uses one of my favorite chocolate combinations: Pear/Chocolate. (My other faves are Hazelnut/Vanilla/Chocolate, Chestnut/Chocolate and Red chili/Chocolate… And also Chai tea/Chocolate, Orange/Chocolate, Peanut butter/Chocolate… Well actually I love any chocolate combinations besides the terrible Mint/Chocolate :)
Ingredients for 1 serving:
- 1 small, very ripe pear
- 1/4 cup chocolate casein protein powder
- 1 tsp cocoa
After having cut the pear in small pieces, I got around 1/2 cup of pear. (I didn’t bother pealing it -it was organic.) The pear must be very ripe to be mashed easily and to provide enough moisture for the whole mixture.
Mash everything well with a fork or use a small food processor.
I put the mixture 2 min on 600 Watts in the microwave. You have to check on it constantly during those 2 minutes. The casein mixture raises very quickly and tries escaping the bowl to make a big mess in your microwave. You need to watch it and stop it every 30 seconds or so to avoid spilling and overflowing while microwaving. The mixture is done when it looks thicker and kind of elastic. Let it cool down and put it at least one hour in the fridge to thicken up a bit more. That’s it!
