How Much Is It…?

A 750g tub of Muscle Mousse is £32.99 on their website, which will get you 15 servings.

This works out as just over £2.00 per serving. Bargain!

How Does It Taste…?

Because I follow of all of these ‘nuts’ on various social medias – I found out that there were various ways to inhale this incredible protein-packed dessert:

Of course, there is the original way to was made to be eaten. 50g mixed with 150ml water in a shaker bottle, pour into a bowl and let set for half hour. Easy! It’s turns into a lovely thick mousse, with zero powdery residue and a great taste. Not too weak, not too strong – just perfect for an after dinner sweet treat.

Then…I found the magical Mousse Kitchen

“What’s the Mousse Kitchen?” I hear you ask..

A wonderful collection of cheesecake recipes, all made with Muscle Mousse. How dreamy!

Now, don’t they look incredible?!!!

I adapted a couple of the recipes from the Mousse Kitchen, and made it my own – so check out my version here.

Eating this cheesecake honestly felt like the biggest treat on earth. I had it for dessert, as standard, and sometimes I even had #CheesecakeForBreakfast – just because I could!! It was just like a ‘real’ baked cheesecake, with none of the guilt.

I added various toppings, from fruit to choccy jazzies (just for funzies) and got the girls at Bedford Lodge hooked as well. I didn’t share nearly as much as I should have though 😉 I even made a Muscle Mousse Cheesecake for Matt’s family BBQ, and everyone loved it *happy Tiff*

My Final Thoughts…

Muscle Mousse is a totally worth-it buy for someone like me who has a super sweet tooth and craves something after dinner. You can play with recipes or just have it as-is, whichever way works for you. A definite must-have on my protein shelf!
