4 Great Plant Based Protein Powder Recipes

Protein powder is such a versatile thing to add into your diet, and it can be used to make a variety of recipes.  These are 4 great plant based protein powder recipes that can be eaten post-workout or just as a general protein boost throughout the day.

 

Chocolate Chia Pudding

You will need:

¾ cup plant based milk (I suggest almond)

2 tbsp chia seeds

1 scoop chocolate vegan protein powder 

2 tbsp cocoa powder

1 tbsp sweetener (such as powdered stevia or maple syrup)

 

Blend the milk and chia seeds together for about 30 seconds, then add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.  Once the mixture is smooth scoop it into a container and refrigerate for a minimum of an hour.  There are lots of great toppings you can add to your chocolate chia pudding, including: chopped nuts, chocolate chips, desiccated coconut, peanut butter, fresh or frozen fruit, cinnamon or extra cocoa powder.

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

You will need:

 1 cup plant based milk

1 ½ tbsp vegan butter

1 tbsp sugar

½ pack active dry yeast

¾ cup flour

1 scoop vanilla vegan protein powder

For the swirl:

1 ½ tbsp pancake batter

½ tbsp vegan butter

1 ½ tbsp brown sugar

½ tbsp cinnamon

 

Microwave the almond milk and vegan butter until they are warm, then add in the yeast and let it activate for around 10 mins.  Add in the sugar, protein powder and flour, and stir as you go.  Gently use a whisk to work out any lumps, then leave the mixture to rise in a warm place for up to 2 hours.

Once your mixture has risen, mix the 1 ½ tbsp pancake batter you will need for the swirl with the vegan butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.  Once this is well combined pour the swirl mixture into a piping bag.

When cooking the pancakes, add the swirl pretty quickly and allow the pancake to cook.  Each pancake will need a few minutes on each side (depending on their size), and leftovers can be stored in the fridge for a few days.

 

Protein Packed Smoothie Bowl

You will need:

2 frozen bananas

½ cup plant based milk

2 tbsp nut butter

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 scoop chocolate vegan protein powder

1 tbsp chia seeds

 

Combine the ingredients in a blender and blend until they are smooth – the mixture should be quite thick.  Transfer to a bowl and add more topping, which could be extra banana, chia seeds, nut butter, frozen berries, or cinnamon.

Cinnamon Bites

1 ½ tbsp cinnamon

2 scoops vanilla vegan protein powder 

¼ cup maple syrup

½ cup flour

1/3 cup nut butter

¾ cup oats

1 tsp vanilla extract

 

Grind the oats slightly in a blender so there are still some chunks, and transfer to a mixing bowl.  Add the rest of the ingredients and stir together – you might need to add more syrup or nut butter depending on how dry your batter is.  Roll into balls and freeze for half an hour then transfer into a sandwich bag with an extra 2 tsp cinnamon and shake so that they are dusted.  They will keep in the freezer for about 6 weeks!

 

These are four of my favourite plant based protein powder recipes, and are great for post-workout refuelling.  Vegan Supplement Store provide products that are entirely vegan, and will support muscle & mass gains, fat loss, or general health and wellbeing.
