3-Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Frosting

I can’t believe these three simple ingredients create such a thick, decadent frosting.

It’s vegan, low-fat, gluten free, refined sugar-free, and so quick + easy.

I made this recipe intending to use it on a single-serving cake, so feel free to double or triple the recipe as needed.

SERVES: 2 (55 calories – 1.5 F / 15 C / 1.5 P per serving)


1/3 cup cocoa powder (30 g)

3 stevia packets (1 stevia packet = 2 teaspoons sweetener)

1 Tablespoon pure maple syrup (15 ml)

3 Tablespoons water (45 ml)


In a small bowl, mix together cocoa powder and stevia. Add maple syrup. Slowly add water a little bit at a time until you reach the desired consistency. Add extra stevia to taste, if needed. Frost cake, and enjoy!

High-Protein Cookie Dough Milkshake

All the flavor of classic chocolate chip cookie dough wrapped into a creamy, high-protein milkshake.

This milkshake is perfect as a quick breakfast option, post-workout fuel, afternoon snack, or a guilt-free dessert. Let’s be honest – there is never a bad time for cookie dough.
