  1. When I put this in my fitness pal it comes up with a lot less protein. Am I doing something wrong?

    • Hi Gayle, Unfortunately, I can’t say if something is being done wrong since I can’t see your MFP entry. However, please keep in mind that the type of protein powder you use (and the brand) will vary the nutrition facts. The nutrition information should be used as a guide here and not exact figures since we do not specify the exact brands used for each ingredient entry.

  2. Hi, great recipe, but I don’t like/eat chocolate (yeah, I know I’m weird lol) is there anything I can use to substitute the cocoa powder?

  3. I might have missed it, but what is the calorie count (more or less) for those that are calorie counting their intake?
