Can’t think of a new way to use protein powder? There are actually many ways you can use protein powder to create healthy and delicious recipes and boost the protein contents of your favorite foods. Just think outside of the shake! Check out these ideas:
You can create healthy pancakes by substituting flour with protein powder. To make it even more healthier, add fruit slices into the batter, cinnamon powder, and oats. Use healthy option toppings such as almond butter, honey, protein peanut butter, fruit slices, blueberries, or raspberries. Check out our collection of protein peanut butter.
For healthier muffins, add half a cup of protein powder for every cup of whole wheat flour. Add in fruits, too. Muffins are great for breakfast and post-workout snack!
Add a scoop of protein powder to your usual oatmeal recipe and some fruits. Use different flavors of protein powder to add variety to your oatmeal.
Adding fruits to pancakes, muffins, and oatmeal lessens your sugar intake. Fruits are already sweet, so you can add little sugar to your food or none at all.
Protein powders are popularly used in shakes. Here are your other options:

Create a healthier frappucino, that delicious iced and blended coffee that many people love. Add a scoop of whey protein powder, of any flavor, to a single serving of a frapuccino drink. A serving is typically a combination of 3/4 non-fat milk, 1/4 cup liquid creamer of any flavor, 10 ice cubes or a cup of crushed ice, and a teaspoon of coffee (roasted, brewed, or instant).
Instead of ice cream, add 1-2 scoops of protein powder to your milkshake mix. Add more non-dairy or skim milk for a creamier milkshake!
Protein powders can also be added to desserts. They can also substitute other ingredients in your desserts.
Substitute half the flour in your recipe with protein powder for a healthier cake, but don’t forget to add additional half cup of water. To prevent overeating (because let’s face it, who doesn’t love cakes?!) and control your sweets, bake cakes in smaller portions or better yet, create them in cupcake sizes.
Add 3 scoops of protein powder for every pack or serving of instant pudding, or you can also create one from scratch using your own pudding recipe.
9. Ice cream
Create your own healthy ice cream with protein powders! Add 1-2 scoops protein powder to 6-ounces of Greek yogurt. Mix then freeze, but you have to stir it every 20 minutes for an hour to reach an ice cream-like consistency.
Of course, cheesecake is included in this list! Just add a scoop of protein powder to your cheesecake recipe. And again, to control your sugar and portions, bake your cake in individual muffin tins. Enjoy!
And then of course, you can add protein powders in your snacks! These are probably the easiest recipes for protein powders.
Just add 1-2 scoops protein powder into your favorite yogurt! Top with fruits, nuts, or any of your favorite extras.
12. Protein Fudge
Mix 8 scoops of protein powder of any flavor with a cup of skim or non-dairy milk, and a cup of oats. Prepare a baking pan with a baking sheet. Put a tablespoon of the fudge mixture on the baking pan in a single line until you form rows. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or more before eating.
13. Protein Bars
Check out our protein bars! Available here.
Instead of using flour, use protein powder for a healthier cookie recipe. You can also add in protein peanut butter to add more flavor.
15. Dough balls
And then there are also some people who like to eat dough balls instead of cooking them into cookies, are you one of them? smiley. Can’t blame you! They’re truly delicious!
