1. You can use any type of protein powder, milk or yoghurt you prefer (dairy or non dairy based). 2. The mesquite power* & lucuma powder* are optional but they give it a lovely caramel taste (plus extra nutrients!). You can purchase them from your local health food shop (I grab mine from The Source Bulk Foods). If you choose not to include them, simply remove them from the recipe (no need to replace them with anything).

what is brown rice protein powder and where is it sold?

Leanne Ward April 8, 2018 - 10:54 am

It’s a vegan/ dairy free type of protein powder. You can buy it from some supermarkets in the health food section or any health food shop or nutrition/ sports shop. It’s used to boost the protein content of a recipe but you can also use standard protein powder (whey protein) if you like 🙂

It’s a vegan type of protein powder. They sell it in health food shops. You can just use normal protein powder if you like – something like whey protein

Hi Leanne,

I can’t wait to make these. How many calories are each one? Thank you.

Hi Loretta, sorry I didn’t know – I haven’t calculated the macros. You can pop all the ingredients into something like my fitness pal to get a rough breakdown but the recipe is suitable for most people – even those trying to lose weight 🙂
