Cookies and Cream Cups

November 25, 2015

This thick, creamy dessert keeps me fuller for longer, it is ideal for weight loss but also a delicious pudding for the whole family. The high protein in Greek yoghurt builds muscles and is vital for new cell growth. There is also calcium and probiotics for bone and digestive health. The cookies are no bake with subtle sweetness from dates and coconut to make the skin glow. The chocolatey taste comes from 100% cacao powder, full of mood boosting magnesium and iron. Cookies and cream have always been a favourite flavour combination and now I can enjoy it more knowing that it's good for me.
