Protein-filled Easter Eggs | Reflex Recipes

Micellar Casein Eggs

Easter: just another date in the calendar to try (and potentially fail) to avoid eating anything overly gluttonous, or an opportunity to whip up something that doesn’t leave you feeling left out but packs in the protein? We opted for the latter and decided to bring you another Reflex Recipe by teaming up with the Protein Chef.

Of course, we had to create an Easter egg, but did so with an added twist. Hidden inside the egg you’ll find a protein crème, made using our Micellar Casein, a product that helps deliver your muscles enough protein for an extended period of time. Perfect to kick off an active Easter Sunday, especially with a choice of flavours that range from Vanilla Ice Cream all the way to Banana Custard!

Ingredients:

100g chocolate
3 scoops of Reflex Micellar Casein
Optional – 20g white chocolate for decoration.

Method:

1. Oil the Easter egg moulds well to avoid the chocolate sticking.

2. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water.

3. Spoon the melted chocolate into the Easter egg mould. Fill to around 3/4 of the way up.

4. Tip the mould to spread the chocolate around the sides, then chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

5. Whilst this sets, make up the protein mixture in a small bowl with water. Add the water slowly until you reach a thick and creamy consistency.

6. Loosen the Easter eggs in the moulds to ensure they slip out nice and easily once you have added the protein filling.

7. Add the filling and place them back in the fridge for a few minutes to allow the filling to set a little.

8. Remove the eggs from the mould, place the two shells together and using a little more melted chocolate stick them together.

9. Place the eggs back in the fridge whilst you get your decoration ready. I used white melted chocolate but feel free to add sprinkles, chocolate chips – whatever you like!

10. Allow the decoration to dry and your protein Easter eggs are ready!

With each egg factoring in 8g protein and just 120 calories, this might be a recipe you keep in mind for the entire year, and not just Easter! But either way, this is one that takes minimal effort and time, and eliminates the need to buy an unhealthy Creme Egg ever again!

If you do decide to make the recipe this Easter, be sure to share it with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram… and for more Reflex Recipes, simply click here.
