If your goal is a lean, muscular body, protein supplements will definitely help. The more you exercise the more dietary protein your body requires to rebuild muscle tissue. Many successful bodybuilders rely on whey protein for a convenient source of easily digested amino acids.
Although most often consumed in the form of shakes, whey powder is highly versatile. Since it’s available in several pre-sweetened flavors, it works especially well in low carbohydrate desserts. Here are a few of the best whey protein powder recipes you can whip up in minutes.
Peanut Butter Bites
Mix together four scoops of vanilla whey protein, one cup of granulated sugar-substitute and one cup of unsweetened peanut butter. Roll handfuls of the mixture into balls. If you like, coat the balls in chopped nuts or cocoa powder. Refrigerate until firm.
Whip one cup of cream and half a cup of natural yogurt. Add two tablespoons granulated low-calorie sweetener and two scoops whey protein. For a sophisticated mocha flavor, use chocolate protein powder and add a teaspoon of instant coffee. For a tropical dessert, use banana powder and stir in pineapple pieces.
Combine a cup and a half of your favorite flavor whey protein with half a cup of almond meal and a cup of powdered milk. Add two tablespoons of peanut butter and a tablespoon of water. Mix with your hands to create a stiff dough, adding more water as necessary. Press the mixture into a greased rectangular baking pan. Chill until set and slice into bars.
Instant Chocolate Brownie
Crack an egg into small glass bowl. Beat in a scoop and a half of chocolate protein powder and a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter. Microwave for one to two minutes until the surface takes on a cake-like appearance. The inside should still be slightly gooey. Eat it warm or cold right from the bowl
Whisk together two scoops banana whey protein, a quarter cup of ricotta cheese and three eggs. Pour a third of the batter at a time into a buttered frying pan. Cook the pancakes over medium heat and flip when set on the bottom.
Melt two ounces of baking chocolate with a half cup of butter. Transfer to a food processor. Add a cup of chocolate protein powder, a cup of powdered milk and two cups of granulated sweetener. Pour in three tablespoons of cream and two tablespoons of water. Blend until ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Press the mixture into a buttered glass baking dish. Refrigerate for two hours then cut into squares.
