Eggs-treme Easter: Chocolate Egg with more protein than a dozen chicken eggs is on bodybuilders wish list
Discount Supplements, a leading UK health and fitness supplements retailer, have teamed up with chocolatier Jo Fensome to create the world’s first ‘supersized protein chocolate egg’ in time for Easter.
This egg packs a serious punch – being made from a high quality protein powder it is both low in sugar and low in fat, whilst sporting the same protein content as 6 eggs whites, 1 full chicken breast and a fist-sized portion of lean beef combined.
This limited edition range of confectionary is larger than life, with each egg twice the size of a standard chocolate Easter egg, but with far fewer calories per serving. In addition, rather than a hollow centre, the protein egg is filled with a delicious ganache mixture.
The recipe, created by Jo, proves that health conscious athletes can still enjoy seasonal treats, without piling on the pounds. Jo says “I bake and cook with chocolate and I like to think I have good taste buds when it comes to the sweeter things in life. I think people will be pleasantly surprised how delicious the protein egg actually is. I am really pleased with the recipe and it is so easy to make, I hope people try it at home.”
Approved by top Athletes
Discount Supplements partnered with some of the nation’s top athletes to trial the eggs themselves. These include professional footballer Adebayo Akinfenwa known as ‘The Beast’; World’s Strongest Man 2017 contestant and European Strongman Champion 2016 for deadlift and log press, Charlie Gough; Boxing instructor and ‘Beast Mode On’ fitness apparel company owner Lenchman D; and pro wrestler and fitness model Mike Mason.
David Lyall from Discount Supplements says “Optimum Nutrition protein powder is one of the best on the market and it is really popular. People assume you can only make shakes from protein powders but we have a team who devise recipes for our products including brownies and hot cross buns. To develop a high-protein Easter egg seemed the natural progression for us.”
