Protein Up and Celebrate Love With Our PlantYourDay Chocolate-Covered Strawberries
Yes, this delectable dessert can offer you a healthy boost, too.
Who ever said something sweet and delicious had to be a guilty pleasure? This Valentine’s Day, we’re setting out to change that idea. Say hello to our very own recipe for chocolate-covered strawberries, featuring PlantYourDay®!
Why We Love This Chocolate-Covered Strawberries Combo
Among its other health benefits, dark chocolate provides ample antioxidants. Meanwhile, strawberries are a powerhouse of the produce aisle, with vitamin C, manganese, folate (vitamin B9), and potassium.
Last, but most certainly not least, our PlantYourDay® protein powder adds a wellness punch to this classic Valentine’s Day favorite. It boasts organic pumpkin and pea protein, prebiotics and probiotics, 110 calories, 16 grams of protein, 1 gram of sugar, 5g of carbs, and only 2 grams of fat! Oh, and we should also mention: it’s vegan!
We might be talking about only three ingredients, but together they make for a surprisingly nutritious dessert. Let’s dive into the how-to!
We think you’re going to love these chocolate-covered protein strawberries. But don’t forget that you can adapt this recipe for many different fruits! Are you more of a pineapple or honeydew person? No problem—all you have to do is swap the fruit. The rest of this recipe will work just as well.
If you’re looking to turn this dessert into something more, you could also create a platter of various chocolate-covered fruits. Or, try your hand at the art of the sweet grazing board.

14 strawberries (don’t forget to wash and dry them thoroughly)
1 scoop of PlantYourDay® protein powder
1 11.5 oz package of dark chocolate chips
What You Need
Melt the dark chocolate chips. There are two ways to do this. First, if you have a microwave, you can put them in a bowl and microwave for approximately one minute. If you do not have a microwave, you can melt them on the stove by filling a sauce pan with one to two inches of water, bringing it to a boil, and then placing a heat-safe bowl of the chocolate chips into that water (the bowl should be big enough to rest in the water without water getting into the bowl).
Once you have melted the chocolate and removed the bowl from the heat source, stir in the protein powder until the mixture is smooth once more.
Dip each strawberry into the chocolate. When you remove it, turn the strawberry in a circle so as to swirl the dripping chocolate onto the strawberry.
Place each strawberry on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Once all of the strawberries are coated with chocolate, put the sheet into the refrigerator to help them set and harden.
