It’s true that there are only so many ways to use protein powder, yet mistakes are common, especially for people starting their health journey. Considering the increasing popularity and use of protein powder in various forms such as whey protein, plant-based, and dairy-free proteins, we are today going to talk about the 7 best ways to use protein powder to get the most out of it.
1. Protein Smoothies
Smoothies or juice are the most common ways to consume protein powder, and also one of the tastiest. There are a number of options when it comes to perfect smoothies. Here’s a quick and simple recipe to get started with.
Spinach Cucumber Smoothie: Add the ingredients (1 cup spinach, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1/2 cup pineapple (frozen), 1/2 cup cucumber (not peeled), 1/2 cup coconut water, 1/2 cup water, 1 teaspoon Vegan Pro (Raw Nutritional), Ice) to a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Warm Oatmeal
Even without protein powder, oatmeal itself is very healthy and protein-rich food to add to your breakfast or other meals. But, if you’re looking to make it healthier, feel free to add 1 scoop of Vegan Pro maple-vanilla to it.
To make sure that the powder blends perfectly with the oatmeal, add a little extra amount of milk or whatever liquid you are using and let it soak for a few hours or overnight.
3. Protein Pancakes
