Ok ok ok, what about those people out there, that are in a clean diet and are craving for chocolate.

Well that craving stops now, with this recipe you will mix chocolate and protein in a healthy way...

 ...And don't worries, eat with not regrets.

Tip: also I think you can substitute the splenda with stevia  and it will look better .
