One day I was browsing Pinterest and saw a great idea for a quick snack – banana pieces dipped in chocolate. I got intrigued and knew I had to make it, but I had an idea.

One time I saw homemade truffles recipe and thought why not to combine these two and add some protein powder. Yes, I love unflavoured protein powder with no added sugar or artificial flavours. So far, this is my favourite one.

I cook a lot with protein powder. Especially snacks and desserts. By the way, the most popular recipe on iFOODreal are these Coconut Protein Balls.

These truffles turned out great and are so easy to make. By the way, I dipped some bananas pieces into chocolate as well. They tasted OK, just fine. The photos I saw looked really good but I can’t say I was impressed. Speaking about the power of beautiful photos.

You do not need ripe bananas to make it, in fact it’s better if they are on a firm side.

I used this silicone ice cube tray from Ikea but a traditional rectangular shape cubes tray will work too.
