Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe

I made this AMAZING dessert the other day that I know you will love and will absolutely curb your afternoon or after dinner sweet tooth, WITHOUT sabotaging your goals!!! This chocolate mug cake recipe is super special because it uses 30+ superfoods! But don’t worry, there are only 6 required ingredients. Intrigued? Keep reading! 

The Super Special Secret Ingredient 

It only has 6 ingredients because one of the ingredients is Shakeology, a powerful ‘meal replacement’ powder. 

Shakeology is packed with 30+ superfoods and over 70 natural ingredients that can help your body eliminate toxins (to increase energy), boost your immune system, aid you in weight loss, help you go to the bathroom more regularly, and curb your sweet tooth!*

Darin Olien

These incredible superfoods packed within one powder are sourced from around the world, supporting small villages, by Shakeology creator, Darin Olien. If you don’t know Darin, check him out on Netflix’s new show… Down to Earth (which is hosted by Zac Efron and Darin Olien, the creator of Shakeology!) or grab a copy of his book, SuperLife

Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe 


  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 scoop Shakeology (any flavor)
  • 1 tbs sweetener of your choice {optional}
  • dash of salt
  • 1 egg
  • optional mix in: cocoa powder
  • 2 or 3 tbs water or almond milk


In a mug mix all dry ingredients. Next, mix in an egg and 2-3 tablespoons of water/ almond milk.  You may need to add more liquid depending on how moist you’d like it. Microwave for 60 sec (if you like it more gooey, this should leave it moist – you can always add 15 second increments if it needs it). When it is done the edges will pull from the sides. Top with a dollop of your favorite nut butter while it’s still hot for extra yumminess.

*Seasonal Shakeology flavors make these super delish too! I’ve used this recipe with pumpkin shakeology, peppermint mocha and salted caramel and all of them are so yummy!

How Can You Get Shakeology??

I am Team Beachbody Coach, so you can buy Shakeology directly from me. When you do buy from me, you also get me as your coach and gain access to my Virtual Gym Community! Shakeology alone is $130, but when you purchase a combo pack with an annual subscription to Beachbody on Demand (online library of HUNDREDS of workouts), you save $70 on your total purchase of both. [You can always cancel your subscription at any time].
