6 Creative Ways to Use Plant-Based Protein Powder for Better Health

Plant-based protein powder is a popular nutritional supplement after a workout; add it to a blender bottle with water to prepare a portable beverage to kick-start energy, build muscle, and promote tissue repair. Mix fruit, nut butter, protein powder and topped with seeds to make a meal replacement bar on the go snack. The dishes are endless, from dips to lasagna to cupcakes and plant-based burgers and more! If you are looking for other ways to using plant-based protein powder besides smoothies, try these 6 new and creative ways to plant protein to fuel your work out and improve your health.

1.  Dough Substitute

It’s not always necessary to make dough from flour and eggs. Plant protein is perfect to be used for making crepes, pizza crust or wraps too! Add plantains, Super Food Unflavored Protein, chia seeds, water, baking soda, baking powder, and herbs to make an easy homemade wrap. Make pancakes, French toast, and waffles for a power-packed breakfast.

2.  Meat Substitute

Making a meat substitute using plant protein is anything but boring and tasteless. Blend together pumpkin seed protein powder, seasonings, and pumpkin puree for the added moisture and fiber. Use the meat substitute to make burgers, meatball, or add it to tacos.

3.  Coffee Lovers

Adding plant protein to coffee is a great way to ensure you’re getting enough protein during breakfast. Mix hot water with plant-based protein powder and then add it to your favorite brewed coffee.

4.  Baked Treats

Awaken your inner chef by adding plant protein to your favorite baked goods. Brownies, cake, cookies, cupcakes, doughnuts, or muffins are few of the delicious protein packed treats. These recipes are great because the protein powder acts as both a sweetener and flour to eliminate the need for eggs, sugar, milk and wheat.

5.  Salad Dressing

Give your salad an extra boost of protein by adding plant protein to your favorite salad dressing. Mix lemon, plant-based protein powder, olive oil, herbs, and apple cider vinegar to make a zesty citrus salad dressing.

6.  Frozen Desserts
What better way to keep cool during the summer or after a workout out than to enjoy healthy frozen treats ample with plant protein? Mix 1-2 scoops of plant-based protein powder with almond milk and fruit to make delicious ice cream or popsicles.
