Crunchy coconut flakes. Sweet cream from whey. That’s the flavor of our Coconut Protein Cream in a few words. If you haven’t eaten the whole jar yet, try using it in some super moist buttermilk-based coconut lemon protein cupcakes. They are sinfully delicious, and with 85% less sugar than regular cupcakes.


  • Mix buttermilk, coconut oil, sparkling water, eggs, lemon juice and coconut blossom sugar in a bowl.
  • In another bowl mix spelt flour, whey protein, baking powder and poppy seeds.
  • Then add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture and stir with a spoon until a batter has just formed.
  • Preheat the oven to 180° C. Divide the batter evenly among 14 muffin cups.
  • Bake the protein cupcakes for 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the thickest part comes out clean. Set aside to cool.
  • Once cooled, spread with Protein Cream. Optional: sprinkle with coconut flakes and/or lemon zest.
  • Enjoy!
