No cooking skills are required, just add 1 scoop of the powder and 3/4 scoop of water, and mix to a paste. Then microwave for 30 seconds, and allow to rest for a further 30 seconds before eating.

It tastes rich and chocolatey without that chalkey taste you sometimes get from protein products. The quantities suggested also make the perfect portion size to give you a sweet hit without over-indulging!
