We all know the importance of getting enough protein in our diet.

Protein helps with good immune function, metabolism, satiety, weight management and performance.

The basic recommendation for protein intake for a generally healthy adult (who doesn’t train) is around 0.8 grams per kilogram of body mass.

Which means, a 68 kg person that’s not working out actively would consume around 54 grams a day.

For those lifting weights, the academy of Nutrition and Dietetics states that bodybuilders require 1.4 to 1.7 grams of protein per kilogram in order to build muscle mass.

I personally love eating protein and make an effort to include it every meal… including dessert.

This 2 ingredient choc protein popsicle is great as a post-workout replenishment or for hot summer afternoons.

When you want something sweet, chocolatey but without the sugar highs and lows.
