Protein Powder, It's not just for Shakes!

9 Great Protein Powder Recipes to try at Home

By Shannon Clark

 Protein Powder & Oatmeal:

Protein Powder Cottage Cheese:

Protein Peanut Butter Balls:

Easy Protein Bars:

Protein Powder Parfait:

Oatmeal Pancakes:

Protein Jell-o:

Protein Milkshake:

Protein Mocha Coffee Blend:

If you're getting sick of always taking your protein powder in the form of a shake consisting of powder and water you aren't alone. Day after day we get tired of the same routine and the desire to try something different is what often leads us to cheating on our diet.

Instead of resorting to unhealthy items, why not try and find something that you can substitute your shake with that will offer you the same nutritional profile? Then you get the best of both worlds: a nutrition meal and a break from the everyday.

Here are a few recipes using protein powder that are easy to make and can satisfy your craving.


Protein Powder Recipes



Protein Powder & Oatmeal:
 

This is an extremely fast and easy meal for when you are in a rush. Simply take your serving of oatmeal, cook it through your preferred method and then add a scoop of protein powder in after its finished cooking.

Note however that you may wish to add a little more water before cooking as the protein powder will act as a thickener. Other additions that you can add to increase the taste and nutrient profile are peanut butter, chopped or frozen fruit and milk.

Easy Protein Bars:

  • 8 Scoops Whey (any flavor you prefer)

  • 3 Cups Oats

  • 1 Package Sugar Free Fat Free Pudding

  • 2 Cups Skim Milk

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and spread in the bottom of a pan. Place in the fridge overnight and cut into 8 individual squares the next morning.

back to top



Protein Jell-o:

  • 1 scoop protein powder (preferably fruit flavored)

  • 1 package sugar free jell-o powder

Make jell-o as directed on the package only right before you put it into the fridge; mix in one scoop fruit flavored protein powder. Syntrax's Nectar protein works great for this recipe.

Protein Powder Cottage Cheese:
 

Another very easy idea for those on a high protein diet and looking for a fast meal. Take 1/2 to1 cup cottage cheese and mix with 1/2 to 1 scoop protein powder. If you are looking for a more complete protein and fat meal, which may be the case for those on carb cycling plans, add in a tablespoon of peanut butter to get the macronutrient profile you need.

Protein Peanut Butter Balls:

  • 3/4 cup peanut butter

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1 scoop chocolate or vanilla protein powder

  • 1/2 cup raw oats

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and form into small 1" balls. Place in the fridge for a few hours and then enjoy.

back to top



Protein Powder Parfait:

  • 2 cups chopped mixed berries

  • 2 cups of sugar free yogurt or pudding

  • 1 scoop protein powder

Mix protein powder in with yogurt or pudding. Layer fruit and pudding/yogurt in a tall parfait glass. Top with chocolate shavings or a dab of fat free cool whip. Makes 2 servings.

back to top


Oatmeal Pancakes:

  • 1 cup raw oats

  • 1 scoop protein powder

  • 3 egg whites

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 2 packets sweetener

  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend for 30 seconds. Then pour onto a hot grill and cook like a normal pancake. An optional addition is to add some frozen fruit after the batter is blended.

Protein Milkshake:
 

For those of you who are bulking and require significant amounts of calories and aren't as worried about fat content, this recipe is perfect.

  • 1 scoop protein powder

  • 2 large scoops ice cream

  • 1 cup milk

*Optional: frozen strawberries or an overripe banana for sweetness.

Blend all ingredients together until well mixed but still thick.

back to top


Protein Mocha Coffee Blend:

This is a great substitute for your regular cup of coffee for those of you who need a little assistance waking up.

  • 1 cup brewed coffee

  • 1/2 cup chocolate protein powder

  • 1/2 cup milk

Mix together and enjoy. Or, alternatively, take cold coffee, add a few crushed ice cubes and drink as an iced coffee beverage.

Conclusion
 

So next time you are looking for a new recipe to add to your repertoire, try one of these. You'll still be meeting your protein needs while satisfying your taste buds.

i make the pancakes all the time and they work out good!! I do 1/2cup quick oats, i scoop protein powder, 1-2 egg whites, 1tsp baking powder, half a banana, dash of cinnamon, and dash of vanilla. Add water if need be to make pancake consistency but usually you dont need much at all! Pour in pan and then enjoy!!!
Top off with fat free reddi wip and sprinkles :)
