My ultimate keto cutting raspberry chocolate cake!!!


4 Scoops Chocolate Protein Powder (BSN Lean Desert Chocolate Coconut used in recipe shown)
4 packets Splenda
2 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 packet sugar free fat free raspberry jello

1 - Mix the protein powder with the splenda, baking powder, cocoa powder and vanilla extract.

2 - Then add ~180 ? 200ml of water and mix into a chocolaty batter.


3 - Pour batter into a shallow microwave safe bowl and microwave it on high for 1 min 40 sec. (or until it
turns into a spongy almost cake like object)

4 - Put the newly made spongy cake object into a large bowl and CRUSH IT!


5 - Mix the jello powder with 200ml of hot water, and pour it into the crushed chocolate mix, and mix the two together well.


6 - Pour the mixture into a cake mold and cover with saran wrap, then put in the fridge overnight (or however long it takes for the jello to set)


7 - Eat your newly acquired protein chocolate raspberry cake! ;)

And special thanks to joeflex73 for the nukeable protein brownie post which led me to think this up.

I ended up eating it all without stopping to take my camera out... turned out excellent, will get a finished product up when i get more jello from the store.

Looks really nice.
One question. Whats the nutrional value like for BSN desert? Would i be able to make this but by using something like 2 scoops of Optimum 100% double rich chocolate whey?

here's a link to the nutritional breakdown of BSN Lean Desert: http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/bsn/dessert.html

I would actually have preferred to have made it with an isolate or ON chocolate whey, but I didn't have any of those when I was making this.

The lean desert has more carbs than I would like, but it still came out with a really low carb content, just couldn't eat the whole thing in one day on keto like you can if you make it with a lower carb protein powder.

tried it, dunno if its cause i used black cherry instead of raspberry jello(couldnt find it!), but its not that appetizing, or at all...
w/ some peanut butter topping and carb free whip cream on top it was a bit more edible, but honestly, the pb and whip cream made it..

needed to revive this thread, because I made this last night - used choc mint whey, added some ground flax meal and topped it off with whipped cream. DELICIOUS.

I'm gonna have a hard time trying not to finish the whole thing today..

man, thanks for the recipe. i tried it the first time and i put a little bit too much water and so the mixture came all watery and came out ok, then i tried it a second time and put the exact amount that i need and it came out PERFECT!,then i put a package almonds in a food processor and chop them and put them into a bowl with a 1 tablespoon of melted butter, then put on top of the cake then fridge overnight and inverted the cake and POOF! a raspberry rocky road(thats what i had) cake w/ almond crust and top it off with homemade whipping cream.

Man, I wish I wouldn't even have opened this thread. I am starving at work right now and that looks SO good.

I actually made this back when the thread first started. I used 50% ON Extreme Milk Chocolate and 50% TP Chocolate Complete Milk Protein Isolate (80% casein) instead of the BSN Lean Desert. I also used strawberry Jello as I didn't have Raspberry.

The cake turn out totally awesome, perfectly moist. I had to microwave it a little extra time as the middle was still wet.

All in all great considering it's pure protein.
