Do you dislike whey shakes just as much as I do, but do you struggle to eat enough protein without them? No worries! There are a lot of possibilities out there for you to create meals and snacks with the powder, working as a perfect solution to making whey shakes. Today, I'm sharing my favorites!
1. QUARK WITH WHEY
This recipe is super easy and I eat it a lot (almost daily): some quark with protein powder and some delicious toppings.
Fresh orange and stracciatella quark
Mix the quark, yoghurt, protein powder and orange juice. Sprinkle the cacao nibs on top. It’s nice if you eat it with some fresh fruit, like nectarine or apple.
Creamy chocolate quark
Mix the quark, cottage cheese and protein powder. Chop the chocolate and sprinkle on top. This recipe is great if you add some sweet fruit, like banana, raspberries or blueberries.
2. FLUFFY OATMEAL
Protein powder is also really good if you combine it with oatmeal. This recipe below is my personal favorite.
Oatmeal with apple
Put all the ingredients in a pan and heat it (while stirring), until it forms a nice porridge. This is a great breakfast!
3. PROTEIN PANCAKES
Fit Girl Roos shared her favorite recipe for protein pancakes with us. They are great for breakfast, but you can also take them with you as an on the road snack.
Mix all the ingredients with a mixer, and leave the mixture to set for 1 minute. The mixture should be quite thick. Bake little pancakes in a pan. Don’t turn up the heat too much – or else they will burn. Use a flat spatula to flip them over. Done! They are really good with some fruit, yoghurt or peanut butter.
