Hello sweet tooth! Your life has been saved. Now that I’m in full on training and 2 weeks away from competition, I have ZERO room for cheats and error in my diet. boo! So I *thought* this meant I would be suffering a slow death march… but NO! This. Changes. Everything.

So a few weeks ago, a friend introduced me to Beverly Nutrition and their UMP (Ultimate Muscle Protein) powder. It’s a (mostly) casein and (some) whey blend, and it’s TO DIE FOR. Hands down the best tasting, best texture protein powder on the market. Only downside: it’s pricey (Buy directly from Beverly or on Amazon). You can mix it with water like a normal shake, OR you can have it in so many delectable ways (pancakes, cakes, etc.) – there are some recipes on the Beverly site.

I have been experimenting making Chocolate LAVA CAKE! Yes I said CAKE. And CHOCOLATE. And YES you can have it! Here is how I made the above:

EASY (and slightly more tasty) Recipe

*Ingredients are per serving, you can double this for 2 people

  • 1 scoop UMP Vanilla
  • 2 tbsp. RAW cocoa powder
  • 1 tSp. Truvia Baking Blend
  • 1/8 cup water (consistency should be brownie like – you can add more water if not smooth enough)
  • Mix all above, pour into non stick ramekin (or spray with spray oil)
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes until the top is cooked but gooey in the middle!
  • Top with raspberries if desired.

EASIER (slightly lower cal)

  • 1 scoop Chocolate UMP
  • 1/8 cup water
  • Mix all above, pour into non stick ramekin (or spray with spray oil)
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes until the top is cooked but gooey in the middle!
  • Top with raspberries if desired.

Both above have 21g protein, approx. 120-140 calories, 3g fat, 3-7g carbs)
