Fun ways to incorporate protein powder

Protein powders are a great way to get the necessary amount of protein in your diet. And although it's easy to add some to your morning shake, the uses for protein powder go far beyond boosting your morning drink.

The average human needs between 46 and 56 grams of protein per day, which makes protein powder a convenient way to make sure you're hitting your daily goals. However, protein powder shakes can get boring after a while. With a variety of protein flavours available and even unflavoured, there's no reason to drink protein smoothies day after day. In fact, you can easily ditch the blender altogether in favor of one of the following unique ways to use protein powder. Goodbye scoop of protein powder in a glass of almond milk.

 

🌟 Add to oats. One of the easiest meals to add proteins to, add one cup of oats to each scoop of protein powder. 

🌟 Try out a protein cookie recipe. It's best to find a recipe that has vetted the correct amount of protein powder to add, like our peanut butter protein cookie recipe in the healthy treats section of the app.

🌟 Make protein pancakes. This is perfect for when you don't want an overwhelming taste of protein. 

 

🌟 Make protein balls! Such a delish snack that you can have on the go or just as a pick me up at the end of the day. 

🌟 Swirl into your yoghurt. Yogurt is actually a surprising source of protein on its own. Swirl protein powder into some Greek yogurt with granola and fruit for a healthy and complete meal.

🌟 Make protein based chia-seed pudding. Chia-seed pudding is becoming a popular dairy-free alternative to yogurt and pudding, and next time you whip up a batch, consider adding any flavour protein powder into your batch.
