Beautiful Blood Orange Protein Cake for one made with a ton of protein powder and egg whites! This healthy blood orange mug cake is just like the upside down cake, but actually easy and has no sugar either.

Bold and beautiful colors, and amazing flavor too in this mini blood orange cake. Proper blood orange flavor from the juice and the zest here, but actually healthy and easy too.

Ingredients for Single Serve Protein Blood Orange Cake

This single serve protein blood orange cake is made with a few simple and healthy ingredients, and has no flour, butter or oil and no sugar either!

  • Blood Orange Juice and Zest
  • Vanilla Protein Powder for healthy, whey protein protein mug cake that’s also sugar free. I used Quest Nutrition Vanilla Milkshake whey-casein protein powder for this mug cake.
  • HTLT Supps is another option.
  • Coconut Flour for a low carb protein mug cake
  • Egg Whites for extra protein
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • Baking Powder
  • Vanilla Extract

If you need to add more sweetness, Stevia Powder or Zero Calorie Sugar Substitute; I use Lakanto, to keep strawberry mug cake sugar free; (code HAYLSKITCHEN for a discount here too)

For the upside down blood orange cake part:

  • Blood Orange
  • Melted Butter
  • 1:1 Sugar FreeBrown Sugar Replacement: I used Lakanto brown monk fruit sweetener so that the cinnamon sugar pop tart is sugar free (code HAYLSKITCHEN gets you a discount here too)
