Quick dessert recipes -#HighProtein

This post may contain affiliate links

These quick dessert recipes are great for a low budget or an unexpected craving for something sweet. They are high in protein, therefore they will leave you full as well. It is not necessary to slave away for hours in these circumstances, but sometimes a simplicity like a smoothie will just do.

The quick microwave desserts are also great when you are making them for 1 or 2 people, and believe me, they are not different from any other baked dessert. I make them all the time when it’s just my husband and me. A mug cake with ice cream or custard takes care of that sweet tooth.
