5 Healthy Recipes With Vanilla Protein Powder

It’s been proven, both scientifically and with live examples, that vegans are perfectly capable of obtaining sufficient protein on a plant-based diet. With the right meal plan, which includes plenty of legumes, seeds, and nuts, you’re sure to meet your daily protein requirements with ease.

But sometimes, it can be difficult to pack enough protein into a single dish (and this goes for non-vegans too!), especially when you’ve got a busy schedule laid out in front of you.

The best way to ensure you’re getting enough protein? Include a plant-based protein powder in your diet.

While it may seem like a supplement meant for athletes and gym-goers, there’s plenty of nutrients in a bag of protein powder that works wonders for the body, from boosting libido to livening up your skin. Especially if the nutrition comes from a bag of Vanilla Magic protein powder from Planet Protein.

When used judiciously, vanilla protein powder is extremely versatile and can be combined with a variety of different ingredients to create delectable, protein-packed dishes that will aid in post-workout recovery. If you’re looking to get more protein into your diet, check out these five recipes made using vanilla protein powder. 

  1. Vegan Peanut Butter Muffins

While the word ‘muffins’ might not scream ‘health’, these gluten-free, protein-packed, peanut butter muffins are unique, and make for the perfect post-workout indulgence. They’re easy to make and free from any odd, unnatural ingredients.

This recipe uses gluten-free oat flour, and in case you’re unsure how to obtain this ingredient, you can simply grind gluten-free oats in preparation for the dish.

  1. Protein Bars

Now while protein bars are a favourite snack among many fitness enthusiasts, they’re rarely made with protein powder.

And if you’re planning to use the Vanilla Magic from Planet Protein, that’s an additional 20 gms of protein per scoop!

This protein bar allows for some versatility as well and you can use any type of berry or nut you prefer to the ones mentioned on the ingredient list. The recipe also uses vanilla extract which can be excluded as the vanilla protein powder will give the bars enough flavour.

  1. Vanilla Protein Shake

This list wouldn’t be complete without a protein shake and this is perhaps the easiest one you’ll find on the internet.

All you need is some vegan milk (any will do, but if you want a thicker shake try almond or cashew milk), vanilla protein powder, and a few ice cubes, if you prefer it cold.

  1. Buttercup Bites

You can eat as many of these buttercup bites as you want because they’re totally healthy, gluten-free, and packed with protein. And if you plan on using Planet Protein’s Vanilla Magic, you can bet there’s a few more health benefits in store for you.

All you have to do is mash the ingredients together, bake the mix, and your protein-rich brownies are ready!

Switch It Up!

For too long, protein powder has been consumed in the most boring way imaginable - diluted in water or plant milk, to be religiously consumed at the end of every workout and training session. When people are feeling adventurous, they’ll try making a protein shake, which then becomes the norm.

Well, it’s time to switch things up and combine protein powder with some of our household recipes, and this includes desserts like muffins and brownies. This way you get the benefit of health and the pleasure of great taste in one dish.

These are just a few of the recipes you can try out with vegan protein powder and there are many more just waiting to be tasted.

So switch things up, and observe how your ideas of health and taste start to evolve as you eat food that is both wholesome and delicious.
