Is one protein supplement not enough for you to get the protein for your fitness goals? Or do you dislike some of the flavours protein supplements come in nowadays? If you find yourself in one of these situations, it could be a good idea to look at our interesting whey protein recipes below!

The Protein & Raspberry Smoothie

Drinking the same protein shake every day can become rather boring, but fortunately, the protein smoothie can brighten your day. Here is what you need:

•    1 scoop of whey protein concentrate;
•    1 cup of unsweetened almond milk;
•    1 tablespoon of peanut butter;
•    ½ cup of fresh raspberries;
•    ½ cup of fresh blackberries;
•    1 cup of ice.

To make your protein & raspberry smoothie, you don’t need that much cooking skills. Simply add all the ingredients to your blender and enjoy!

The Strawberry & Banana Sunrise

Those who like their fruits will certainly appreciate this delightful smoothie with whey protein concentrate. Similar to the previous recipe, all you need is a good blender and the following ingredients:
•    1 banana;
•    ½ cup of strawberries;
•    1 scoop of whey protein concentrate;
•    250 millilitres of basic almond milk;
•    1 tablespoon of natural peanut butter.

Coconut Fiesta

Not everyone likes coconut flavours, but those that do thoroughly enjoy it. Since coconut has some good nutrients to offer, the coconut fiesta may be just what you need to make your protein supplement a little more interesting.

Fortunately, the coconut fiesta is a lot faster to make than some of the fruit-based smoothies, so if you are pressed for time in the morning, this smoothie could be a great start of the day. To make the coconut fiesta, you will need to blend the following ingredients into a smooth mixture and put it in the freezer for 5 minutes.

•    ¼ cup of coconut milk;
•    Half a cup of unsweetened almond milk;
•    1 scoop of whey protein concentrate;
•    1 tablespoon of creamy peanut butter.

Peanut Butter Pancakes

Not a real fan of protein-enriched smoothies? No problem, because our peanut butter pancakes can also be the protein bomb you have been looking for. It is a great dish to serve first thing in the morning, plus it will also give you a good amount of energy during the day.

To make our delicious peanut butter pancakes, you will need the following ingredients:

•    1 scoop of whey protein concentrate;
•    3 egg whites;
•    ¼ cup of water;
•    1 tablespoon of almond butter;
•    1 tablespoon of any artificial or natural sweetener;
•    2 tablespoons of sugar-free syrup.

First, mix the eggs, whey protein and water into a bowl. Once you have a consistent mixture, cook your pancakes in an anti-stick pan on medium heat. Then, put the pancake on a plate and add a tablespoon of almond butter, a tablespoon of artificial sweetener, and the sugar-free syrup on top of the pancake. Of course, you are also free to add some fruits like strawberries and bananas.

The Mega-Breakfast Smoothie

Having trouble consuming all required nutrients in one day? Why not get them with one shake? Our mega-breakfast smoothie gives you plenty of vitamins, fibres and proteins, so you do not have to struggle to get them during the rest of your day.

To make and blend your own mega-breakfast smoothie, you will need the following: 

•    450 millilitres of normal almond milk;
•    ½ cup of strawberries;
•    ¼ cup of blueberries;
•    1 scoop of natural peanut butter;
•    2 scoops of any whey protein powder; 
•    1 cup of oatmeal;
•    2 scoops of an essential amino acids supplement.

Banana Batch Pancakes

Sticking to any diet routine does depend on good flavour, which is why we added the banana batch pancakes to our overview of whey protein recipes. If you like creamy flavours, but with a twist, these banana batch pancakes should be the perfect addition to your diet.

To make amazing banana batch pancakes, you will need the following ingredients:

•    ¼ cup of coconut;
•    2 scoops of any protein supplement;
•    6 whole eggs;
•    2 separate egg whites;
•    1 tablespoon of coconut oil;
•    1 banana;
•    cinnamon sticks;
•    sugar-free syrup.
•    1 tablespoon of sweetener

Grab a bowl and mix your eggs, coconut, half of a mashed banana, and the sweetener. Then, add your protein supplement. Keep stirring until you get a creamy mixture. Once you have a creamy batter, add your cinnamon.

Before you cook your banana batch pancakes, make sure to preheat your pan to 300 degrees. Then, add the batter to the pan and wait until golden brown. Once your pancakes are done, be sure to add the rest of the banana (slices) and some sugar-free syrup for extra deliciousness.

Halloween Protein Bars

Themed foods are not out of the question either with these recipes, because Halloween protein bars should also be on your shortlist. If you love a combination of strong flavours such as ginger, clove and cinnamon, these Halloween protein bars could be on the menu all year long!

•    2 tablespoons of stevia;
•    100 millilitres of applesauce;
•    2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon;
•    ½ tablespoon of ground clove;
•    ½ tablespoon of ground ginger;
•    1 tablespoon of baking soda and baking powder;
•    ½ tablespoon of salt;
•    2 tablespoons of vanilla extract;
•    4 egg whites (1 extra if you are using small eggs);
•    450 millilitres of flesh;
•    2 cups of oat-based flour;
•    2 scoops of your favourite protein supplement;
•    ½ cup of walnuts.

For this recipe, you need a lot more ingredients than the average protein recipe, but we can assure you that it is worth the effort. First, preheat your oven on 350 degrees and spray your cake tin with some non-stick spray. Alternatively, you can also use some baking paper. Then, add all the ingredients except for the flour, protein supplement and walnuts. Once you have mixed the first batch of ingredients, you can add the final ingredients to the mix. 

When the batter is ready, cook your cake for approximately 30 minutes. When done, cut the obtained cake into 30 squares (bars) and enjoy the benefits of an amazing Halloween treat!
