3 Delicious Protein-Based Recipes To Help Feed Your Muscles

FHM x USN Promotion

Protein powder helps to fuel, repair and maintain lean muscle so  you can build a stronger, leaner body.

And with USN’s winning mix of products and flavors, you can easily combine it with delicious snacks that crush hunger pangs and power your muscles.

Here are three easy recipes to get you in the kitchen...

Chocolate Pistachio Pancakes

Turn your pancakes into a stack of protein-packed mancakes by whisking 30g of buckwheat flour, 1 tbsp of baking powder, ½ cup of almond milk, one scoop of chocolate peanut-flavored USN Lean-8 Multi-Phase Protein and some chopped pistachios, then cook the batter for two to four minutes on each side in a pan.

The fast, medium and slow-release proteins will fuel your muscles before the gym, while the pistachios deliver fatigue-busting iron.

Peach And Walnut Mousse

For a dessert that will bulk up your muscles, not your belly, mix one scoop of peach and mango-flavored USN Protein Mousse with 175-200ml of water. Shake for a minute and add a cup of sliced peaches, ¼ tsp of cinnamon and diced walnuts.

The creamy mousse will satisfy your sweet tooth, while the 15g of protein blocks post-gym muscle breakdown.

Banana Yogurt Smoothie

Boost your sleep—and your biceps—with this great banana-flavored nightcap. Blitz together ¼ cup of almond milk, 150g of low-fat Greek yogurt, one chopped banana, two scoops of strawberry-flavored USN Casein Night Time Protein and a handful of flax seeds.

The pre-bed treat contains sleep-inducing tryptophan and a 26.5g hit of slow-release casein to drip-feed your muscles as you doze.
