If you have been following me for a while now, you’ve probably seen me use plant-based protein powders in some of my recipes. Contrary to what most people believe, protein powders aren’t just for people who work out; they are actually a good way to level up your protein intake and can easily be incorporated into different recipes. Whilst I don’t believe that protein powders are essential to your diet, they are an excellent addition for a quick and easy source of protein.

Before I get to what kind of recipes you can make with protein powders, let me tell you a little about their benefits.

Benefits of Plant-Based Protein Powders

One reason why people consume plant-based protein powders is that they are rich in protein which is essential in repairing, maintaining, and growing muscles, tissues, bones, cartilage, and blood. I encourage you to choose plant-based protein powders. Here are some of the benefits:

  1. Plant-based protein powders are easier to digest since they are made using plant-based ingredients such as hemp, seeds, rice, peas, or quinoa. 
  2. Most plant-based protein powders are gluten-free.
  3. They carry fewer artificial sweeteners compared to other non-vegan options.
  4. It’s dairy-free, making it the perfect option for vegans or anyone who is lactose intolerant.
  5. Many plant-based protein powders contain all 9 essential amino acids. 
  6. Less harm to the planet and animals. 

What can you make with protein powder?

You’ll be surprised to know that aside from smoothies and shakes, there are tons of other recipes that you can make using plant-based protein powders. Here are several options:

  • Pizza (yes, you can mix it with the dough to make your pizza high in protein!)
  • Pancakes (for a high protein breakfast or brunch!)
  • Protein ice cream (perfect for a sweet post-workout snack!)
  • Cookies and other pastries (yep, it’s entirely possible!)
  • Smoothies and smoothie bowls (my personal favourite!)

I have actually compiled some of my favourite protein recipes but first, let’s talk a little about Outcast Foods and their awesome protein powders!

This means that instead of surplus produce going straight to landfills, these are instead upcycled to produce their vegan, non-GMO, organic products. 

They mainly carry these plant-based protein powders, and I was happy to try out THREE of their flavours (chocolate, vanilla, and lemon meringue pie). Each scoop contains 6 servings of fruits and vegetables and 20g of protein!
