Protein powder can be one of the building blocks towards achieving a stronger body, helping to fuel, repair and maintain lean muscle.
With a selection of flavors available, you can easily transform powder into snacks that are rich in protein and also happen to taste pretty damn good.
Here are five simple-to-make recipes to help you get started…
To make protein pancakes, whisk 3 egg whites, 4 tbsps of almond milk and 1 scoop of banana-toffee-flavored USN Pure Protein GF-1, then cook the batter for 2-3 minutes each side. They’ll energize your training and feed your muscles for a powerful morning boost.
Vanilla Cinnamon Bun
Make on-the-go snacks by mixing 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of pumpkin seeds, 1 cup of oats and 1 scoop of vanilla and cinnamon USN Lean-8 Multi-Phase Protein, and then roll the mix into bite-sized balls. High in fibre and protein, they’ll crush hunger and fuel your muscles.
Strawberry Fruit Shake
For a refreshing protein drink, blend a handful of frozen berries with ½ an apple, 1 carrot and 2 scoops of strawberry-flavoured USN Pure Protein GF-1. The fruit and veg add a burst of immunity-boosting nutrients, and the whey protein stops unwanted muscle breakdown.
Chocolate And Peanut Smoothie
To recover from training, blitz 1 cup of soy milk, 1 cup of oats and 2 scoops of chocolate-peanut-flavored USN Lean-8 Multi-Phase Protein. It’s as delicious as something you’d buy in an American diner, but the mix of fast, medium and slow-release proteins help repair and maintain lean muscle.
Vanilla Yogurt Midnight Snack
For a late-night feast, drizzle 1 scoop of vanilla-flavored USN Casein Night Time Protein over a bowl of Greek yoghurt and blueberries. The hit of vanilla will curb any cravings for sugary snacks and the slow-digesting protein will drip-feed your muscles while you sleep.
