Ingredients
175g plain chocolate (75 per cent cocoa solids)
350g silken tofu
1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
Juice and zest of 2 oranges
Grated orange zest and chocolate, to serve
Serves 4

How to make it
Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally. Allow to cool slightly. Place the chocolate, tofu, protein powder, orange zest and juice in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Spoon into four individual dishes and chill in the fridge until set. Decorate with a little orange zest and grated chocolate.

Why should I have it?
Known for their muscle-healing vitamin C content, oranges are also packed with photochemical and flavonoids that protect muscles from oxidative damage caused by exercise. Tofu also contains muscle-building protein and calcium, as well as isoflavones, which can block the female hormone oestrogen and make testosterone more prevalent.
