Prescription Chocolate

Grey's Anatomy returned last night with 2 hours of death and funerals + I'm PMSing = me needing CHOCOLATE.

This super yummy dessert came together in less than 10 minutes and was just what the Dr. ordered...


Shelly's Chocolate Malt Trifle

1/2 a Shelly's 5 Minute Chocolate Malt Protein Cake
1/2 cup Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding (prepared)
1 Tablespoon Chocolate Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon Malted Milk Powder (No Sugar Added kind)
Sugar Free Land o Lakes Whipped Cream

Prepare 5 Minute Chocolate Malt Protein Cake. Allow to cool. Slice in 1/2 and cube. Prepare pudding per package instructions. Mix in protein and malt powder. Spoon 1/2 of pudding in bottom of 2 trifle/parfait glasses top with cake cubes, remaining pudding and a squirt of SF Whipped Cream.

Shelly's 5 Minute Chocolate Malt Protein Cake

1 Egg, beaten
3 Tablespoons Milk
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Vanilla Torani Syrup (on sale now)
2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix (I use this)
1 Tablespoon Unsweetened Cocoa
1 Tablespoon Malted Milk Powder
1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder
Pinch salt
1 - 2 cup Measuring Cup or Microwave Safe Mug

In a measuring cup or microwave safe mug, Mix egg, milk, syrup and oil and combine thoroughly. In a separate bowl, mix pancake mix, cocoa, malt, protein powder and salt. Tip dry into wet and stir till combined. Nuke in microwave for 2 minutes (my microwave is getting old and needs 20 seconds added now.) Let it sit for three or so minutes (it pulls away from the sides) before tipping the cake onto a plate. Yields 4-5 slices.

Your recipes always look so yummy! Have you tried making mint chocolate chip protein ice cream? It's my favorite flavor, but I haven't attempted making my own yet?

Hi Shelly, I just recently came across your blog and am so happy that I did. I just started going back to the beginning of your story and it's very interesting b/c I just turned 35 on Sept. 15th and have been dealing with all of the depression over my life not being where I'd hoped it would be and not looking like I'd hoped I would be. I'd decided that I was no longer having birthdays!! LOL

I'm scheduled for surgery on November 9th so I'm going to keep reading your story for inspiration, and share it with my friends in my support group. Thanks for all of your musings and wow, recipes galore!! I usually hate cooking but I have a feeling that if I keep reading, I just might find it fun!!

Thanks!!
Ericka
