My recipes for protein fudge are probably the easiest protein recipes on this site. Mix up the ingredients, spoon into a pan, and freeze. This recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Fudge has one extra step, a peanut butter protein swirl, but it’s still so easy. And so delicious!
Here I used the True Athlete chocolate whey protein from the Vitamin Shoppe, and I highly recommend it. It is so chocolatey! Like creamy milk chocolate. It made a delicious icing for my Black and White Protein Cookies, and is amazing for protein fudge!
This recipe is a twist on my Double Chocolate Protein Fudge recipe. Instead of just replacing the almond butter with peanut butter, I took it a step further by adding a peanut butter protein swirl that is similar to my recipe for Peanut Butter Protein Frosting.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Fudge, your new favorite protein treat. The only hard part is waiting for it to freeze. :)
