Preparation time: 8 minutes

Ingredients (serves 1)

  • 2 lightly salted rice cakes
  • 15 g protein powder, caramel flavor preferred
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 0.5 cup non fat greek yogurt
  • Chilled coffee

Instructions

  1. To begin, soak 2 rice cakes in chilled coffee, allowing them to soften and absorb the rich flavors.
  2. Next, combine protein powder, non-fat Greek yogurt, and 1 tsp of cocoa powder, blending until the mixture achieves a smooth and creamy consistency.
  3. Layer half of this delightful mixture onto the softened rice cake, spreading it evenly.
  4. Place the second rice cake on top, creating a delightful sandwich.
  5. For the grand finale, add the remaining half of the mixture, generously coating the top rice cake, and sprinkle 1 tsp of cocoa powder for an extra touch of decadence.
  6. Enjoy this irresistible treat, indulging in the luscious layers of flavor!

Tips

  1. Ensure that you use chilled coffee to prevent the rice cake from becoming too soft or breaking down.
  2. If desired, enhance the experience by adding your favorite fruit as a delightful topping!
  3. For a unique twist, consider experimenting with matcha powder as a substitute for cocoa powder in your next creation, offering a whole new flavor experience to savor!
