The chocolatey flavor in this recipe comes from LADDER Whey Protein, which perfectly balances the natural nuttiness of the pecans. The dates provide a delightful caramel sweetness, and a dash of cinnamon is all you need to round out the flavor. If you're not a fan of rice milk, you can swap it with whatever milk you have on hand (though it will change the nutritional profile).
