This indulgent, delicious recipe was created by Shaun Warner, using our Chocolate Protein Powder. He explained that the great taste of the protein powder made a good foundation for the recipe. By combining this with silken Tofu he was able to create a delicious treat that contains plenty of protein and good levels of leucine. Better still, there is no baking required and the tarts can be ready to serve in just over an hour.
