A decadent chocolate cake with chocolate chips and a deep chocolate drizzle that will make you want seconds. This delicious cake is vegan and packed with protein too!
I made it for my family and no one could believe that it was vegan too.
And of course it’s an added bonus that I made it with Silk Soy Milk that is filled with plant-based protein.
You can easily use almond milk, coconut milk or any other milk of your choice. Go ahead and use whatever you like or whatever is in your refrigerator.
Chocolate cake + chocolate chips + chocolate drizzle = heaven. I mean, vegan heaven.
Silk Soy Milk is lactose-free, dairy-free, cholesterol-free and contains no high-fructose corn syrup or artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
Silk Soy Milk is enrolled in or verified by the Non-GMO Project and is free of gluten, casein, peanuts, egg and MSG. Each serving has 8 grams of plant based protein per serving!
That’s more protein than any other dairy-free milk.
I don’t know about you but I am always looking for more ways to add protein to my diet. Sure it’s kind of awesome to add protein to a cake (right??) but I also love the fact that I can add more protein to my smoothies and overnight oats.
You know that feeling when you are so absolutely famished that you could eat anything in your sight? It’s called being hangry.
What in the world does hangry mean?
It means that you become so hungry that the lack of food causes you to become really angry.
That’s me around 3:00 p.m. on most days. The only way for me to avoid being hangry is to eat have a protein filled snack in the afternoon.
This can be a fruit/vegetable smoothie made with Silk Soy Milk, some overnight oats or an apple with almond or peanut butter.
These protein filled snacks help prevent me from eating chips, my kids’ grilled cheese and whatever else is sitting in front of me at the time.
Every morning I eat my overnight oats, I workout, drink lots of water…so why ruin all of my clean living with one moment of weakness?
And we will always be tempted with something. Some times it something sweet like cake or another dessert, other times it’s something salty like pretzels or chips.
Whatever it is, try to prepare yourself with a healthier alternative. That’s where this cake comes into action.
These protein packed snacks helped to prevent me from being hangry, now I deserve a treat, right?
Why not one that’s vegan, dairy-free and loaded with plant-based protein? Oh, I forgot to mention how crazy delicious it is and it has three types of chocolate in there!
Like I said, this cake is for true chocolate lovers. Go ahead and add some chocolate sprinkles on top.
That’s really important to me.
Now let’s talk chocolate. More specifically, this amazing triple chocolate cake.
This is exactly what you need when that chocolate craving hits. And let’s be honest, I seem to be craving chocolate more and more these days.
Everything in moderation, right?
What I love about this cake is that it freezes really well too. Even with the chocolate drizzle!
That’s important because it will help with portion control.
Just keeping it real here. I think we have all been there where we feel like we can eat a half (if not more) a cake in one day.
C’mon! Who’s with me?
What I like to do is freeze individual slices of this cake in air tight storage containers so that I am not tempted to overeat and I can just pull it out of the freezer when I feel like a slice. If you haven’t tried this yet, it works really well.
This goes for all types of desserts, cookies, scones, donuts…you name it. I freeze (almost) everything!
I am all about preventing mindless and stress eating. I am sure you can relate and have been there before. It happens to the best of us.
