5 creative ways to use your protein powders
Recently bought some Protein Powder but want to use it in more than just your shaker? This article will show you some creative ways to make the most of your protein powders.
1 - Mix A Scoop Into Your Oatmeal
Oatmeal is full of complex carbohydrates making it a great way to start your day. By adding a scoop of your protein to your oats does not only add more flavour but it also gives you a protein boost to start your day. Getting your protein in early can be a great way to hit your protein intake goals for the day. We recommend trying Warrior Whey as it comes in many delicious flavours ranging from Double Chocolate to Vanilla Ice Cream and it is easy to mix.
2 - Make Some Protein Pancakes
If you are looking a protein packed meal then Protein Pancakes could be perfect for you. Add a scoop of protein powder into your pancake mix and it will not only add flavour, it will add a huge amount of protein. Adding protein to your pancakes will also fill you up for longer throughout the morning.
3 - Protein Packed Smoothie
If you have a blender then the amount of protein smoothie recipes that you can make is endless. Try mixing some frozen fruit with some yogurt and protein powder and you've got yourself a nice protein packed smoothie. These are a healthy alternative to a standard milkshake but taste just as nice!
4 - Make A Protein Packed Dessert
If you have a sweet tooth there are many ways that you can mix protein powders with your desserts. A very popular high protein dessert that you can make is Protein Balls. Protein Balls are a dessert made from mixing a variety of ingredients with the main two being peanut butter and protein powder. Have a search for the best Protein Balls recipe to get started.
5 - Mix it with Greek Yogurt
Greek yogurt is a healthy snack that is already full of protein. By adding protein powder to your Greek Yogurt you will not only double the amount of protein but add a ton of flavour. Once you have mixed your protein powder of choice with the yogurt, leave it in the fridge or freezer to change the consistency.
