It's our 12 Days of Christmas celebration!
What says Christmas more than a Fruit Mince Pie Protein Ball?
It's the perfect accompaniment to a steaming hot Chocolate Whey Hot or even a warm cup of Eggnog.
For those fortunate enough to win our Limited Edition Christmas Pudding Muscle Food 101, pop a scoop of that in to your protein balls, otherwise improvise with our regular Vanilla Muscle Food 101 and add some extra cinnamon and all spice.
