Best 3 Ways to Use Protein Powder

If you have been in our store recently, you have probably seen the display of new products right up front. We are excited to have released our proprietary vegan protein powders! Our brand is called Ecoflo Naturals- we make supplements including fish oil, hair, skin, and nail supplements, single and complex herb formulas, whey protein, and now vegan proteins! Our new blends are great. We have a regular protein formula and a meal replacement formula. All of our protein powders are made from a combination of vegan protein sources (for example, pea protein, cranberry seed, chia seed, and sacha inchi seed), and fortified with additional amino acids to provide a balanced amino acid ratio for maintaining a lean body and optimal health. While our proteins taste amazing and have a smooth texture in plain water, there are lots of other interesting ways you can use your protein powder for variety. Check out these 3 awesome protein powder recipes for inspiration! Click through the titles or links to access the blog posts with full recipes.

Protein Balls

Protein balls and bites are some of the most popular protein recipes– they make for awesome, filling snacks that can be eaten at home or on the go. If you freeze them, they can either be a nice cooling snack for summer or you can pack them for lunch or on a road trip and they will stay fresh for longer. Recipes can always be altered to suit your tastes. Experiment with your favorite nuts, protein flavors, and other fillings. The key is keeping the proportions of wet and dry ingredients pretty close to the original recipe. If you can’t find or don’t want to use something like the chocolate syrup, use honey, maple syrup, or your other favorite liquid sweetener.

  • 2 scoops Ecoflo Naturals protein powder (flavor your choice)
  • 1/2 cup nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew, etc)
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds, ground flax seeds, or oats
  • 1 tsp (or more to taste) you favorite liquid sweetener, like honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • whatever spices or mix-ins you like! See suggestions below
  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, and with clean hands roll into balls. If necessary, adjust the consistency so balls form together nicely. If they are too dry, add more sweetener or a splash of water or milk of your choice. If they are too wet, add more oats, seeds, or protein powder

Have fun with your mix-ins here! Try nuts, seeds, chocolate or carob chips, cacao nibs, candied ginger, dried herbs, spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt), or rolling in shredded coconut!

Chia pudding is one of the easiest snacks/desserts ever, and this one gets spiced up with warm, rich, chai flavors. You can play with the proportions of the spice blend to suit your tastes.

 

Lemon Poppyseed Protein Muffins from Amy’s Healthy Baking

This recipe isn’t vegan, but you can still use vegan protein powder. Many people who are not vegan choose a vegan protein due to a number of reasons, from getting different amounts of amino acids over time to consistency. The muffins also freeze well, so you can quickly reheat them for a grab-and-go breakfast or post-gym snack.Lemon poppyseed protein muffin
