³ Description

I know you're smiling, go ahead and admit it...I know you remember those Choco-Tacos when you were a kid (if not google it!! Slim (Protein) Choco-Tacos.....These yummy tacos can have a bit of a protein punch from the Greek Yogurt and if you desire, added Whey (You can add as little or as much you like to accommodate your taste--this is optional. I add extra Whey when having them for Post Workout). The shell is a Sprouted Corn Tortilla (I shaped/baked it in the oven to make a hard shell), Ice Cream part is Frozen Greek Yogurt with Banana a Whey/Casein Blend, 10g of Lindt 85% Dark Chocolate and 1/2 tbs of Chopped Nuts for the topping. You should definitely give these tacos a try, healthy & fun and your kiddoes will love them too!!

1. Add Sweetener or more Protein of choice to Greek Yogurt (Ice Cream Mixture) for added flavor.
2. Replace Greek Yogurt with other Yogurt/Ice Cream/Pudding of choice.
3. Don’t be afraid of using the dark chocolate in this recipe. Remember the darker the chocolate (higher percentage of cocoa), the lesser amount of sugar will be added to your recipe. Try to use 70-90%.
