Few things in life give us the same pleasure that a slice of chocolate cake does. Particularly a nice, gooey, fudgey chocolate cake that gives over 13g protein per slice and is entirely plant-based!

Made with our newest vegan protein flavour, Pea Protein Cocoa Orange Zest, this vegan Chocolate Fudge Cake has a rich and zesty flavour that makes it a real crowd-pleaser. Being plant-based, it also suits a range of diets.
