Whilst we're on a roll with the festive goodies, another one we're dying to share with you all...the *Limited Edition* Mince Pie & Cream My Muscle Mug!
One of 3 (!) sensational new My Muscle Mug mixes to hit the Mix - Choc Orange Cake Mix & Apple Crumble & Custard Oat Mix arrived too!! - the Mince Pie & Cream, adorned as it is with cute Christmassy snowflake stars, is the only special edition seasonal one...and it definitely deserves extra special attention here as, well, it's pretty 'Extra Special!'
When Emily Case, the My Muscle Mug mastermind, told us she was working on this never-done-before flavour, I'll be honest, we were a little nervous...I mean, all the glorious, rich flavours & textures of fruity, zesty, spiced mincemeat (not to mention the 'cream' promised!!), and all for 200kcals (and with 25g protein)!?! Even with Em's guilt-free mug-cake 'mad skillz' we were afraid this would be 'Christmas Miracle' territory!
Oops! Christmas Miracle or not, AS IF we had any reason to doubt!! Em's Mince Pie & Cream Cake Mix delivers the goods (or should that be 'gifts'?) and then some!
Traditional Muscle Mug base has been to the North Pole and back and now finds itself infused with sultanas & raisins (which respond SO well to the heat as your mug cake is cooking...they're soft, juicy and flavoursome!), candied citrus peel (oh, yes...this is a 'Taste the Difference' Mince Pie, make no mistake!!), cinnamon, ginger and mixed spice and, for your Creamy accompaniment (in this case, ultimately melted into your gloriously risen cooked mug cake)? White choc chips!!
Grab your seasonal sachet, pour it into your fave mug (or bowl!) along with 100mls of water or milk (skimmed milk is my fave), mix and microwave for 1-2 mins and, PING!, Yuletide YAAAASSSS!
Forget *good enough* to leave out for Santa...this is TOO GOOD to leave out for him! :D
