3 epic protein charged snacks

Which protein rich snack is your favourite – 1, 2 or 3?

1. Raspberry orange bowl

2.  Mini veggie frittata loaf

3. Banana cinnamon cottage cheese split

They’re all quick and easy to create within minutes and will satisfy any hungry tummy. I’ve made each with the protein rich, low fat addition of @bullafamilydairy cottage cheese to ensure you’re not missing out on protein in your snacks for the day. The family favourite right now is the raspberry orange bowl which I also make into popsicles as a protein rich icy pole treat for a hot day too.
