Protein-Powered Mince Pies
It’s definitely easy to overdo it at the holidays. So why not bake a healthier mince pie? With the addition of Liberto organic vanilla-flavoured protein shake, this Christmas classic is instantly transformed into a protein-powered treat. Not only is this recipe gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan, it’s also sweetened with natural sweeteners and fruit sugars rather than refined sugar.
