Help! What to do with protein powder?

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

150 grams low fat quark, 50 ml low fat yoghurt, 15 grams Stracciatella Milkshake Smart Protein, 25 ml orange juice, handful cacao nibs.

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

150 grams low fat quark, 30 grams cottage cheese light, 15 grams Chocolate Caramel Milkshake Smart Protein, 10 grams pure chocolate.

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

40 grams oatmeal, 250 ml low fat milk, 10 grams Cookies & Cream Whey Perfection, 5 grams flaxseed, cinnamon, 1 diced 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.

Vanilla pancakes

4 tablespoons ultra fine oats, 1 scoop vanilla whey, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 2 eggs, 2 eggwhites, 100 to 150 ml milk.

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.

This is the protein you need when you train a lot

During a workout, your body often uses a number of different muscle groups making it important to drink a protein shake to replenish your muscles. Your muscles become stronger, and with stronger muscles, your metabolism speeds up. Protein also makes sure that your muscles are less sore! I think it’s safe to say that as Fit Girls, we all know this, right?!

Nutritional goodness

While we can all agree that your muscles need a lot of protein if you work out regularly. There is one thing about proteins that stumps women everywhere. I often get messages in my inbox from readers asking if we know about any protein powder without artificial additives. Good question! Let me tell you, it was pretty difficult to find a good solution and to give you guys advice on this. So you can imagine that when I heard that I got to try out some sachets from MissFits Nutrition, I was really curious!

Let’s do some background info: MissFits Nutrition has developed a protein powder that’s made out of pea protein. These powders are free from artificial additives, and are only made from natural nutrients. I’m a sucker for that. I just don’t want junk like aspartame and nasty sweeteners and other things like that in my shake! ‘The Multitasker’ pea protein shake is not only vegan, but also low in calories, sugar and fat. Another great thing about MissFits Nutrition is that they just started and immediately came up with a great new product (I mean, natural protein powder, YAY). MissFits Nutritition is a real start-up, so we can’t help it but to encourage these types of great initiatives.

Shake it

I must admit, I used to think that it seemed like a bit of a hassle taking protein shakes, because you read everywhere that you have to consume your shake at a certain time of day in order to maximize your post work out moment. The good thing about MissFits Nutrition is that it’s so easy to prep that it takes that hassle away. All I have to do is take my cup with a sachet of The Multitasker powder to my training and when I’m done, I fill my cup up with water. A quick shake and I’m ready to drink it! You can also fill your cup with milk, if you prefer a creamier and richer taste.

A piece of protein candy

The Multitasker comes in four different flavours: vanilla, coffee, chocolate and mixed berry. I’m especially crazy about the last one! You can really taste the berries. Trust me, I’ve tried a lot of protein shakes that didn’t taste very good (to say the least), but this shake is just like a piece of candy. The Multitasker protein shakes are specially made for women to help you to recover in the best way, to burn fat and give you an energy boost. And a flat belly of course. 😉

Conclusion: I’m a huge fan of The Multitasker protein powders! Finally there’s a protein powder that doesn’t contain weird additives and just cares about natural ingredients.
