chocolate protein powder recipes

Chocolate protein powder is a great way to get the body pumping while providing some complex carbohydrates for energy. I like to mix it in with a bowl of cereal for a delicious healthy dessert. The chocolate flavor works well with cereal, yogurt, oat bran and even granola. You can use any of these items as a base or enhance them for variety. Other ways to use chocolate:

Healthy chocolate protein powder recipes vary depending on the brand of product you buy. Some companies use high fructose corn syrup instead of glucose, which can be better for you. Others use soy or whey. For the convenience of mixing these two different types of products, there are also ready-to-use bars.

Most of these ready to use chocolate protein powder recipes contain oatmeal as an ingredient. If you don’t have oatmeal, try using whole wheat flour. For a kick, add some vanilla or cinnamon extract to the batter. If you want a smoother texture, add some regular flour to the mixture. You will get a nice thick shake, similar to the frosting.

Another quick chocolate peanut butter shake recipe you might try is a chocolate peanut butter cookie. This is pretty easy and you won’t need a measuring cup.

If you want to try one of the many chocolate protein powder recipes that doesn’t use almonds, bananas, or Whey, you might want to try a chocolate frozen banana smoothie. The only difficult part is to figure out which banana brand you will want to use. The key is to get a pure fruit flavor, like a canned bananas. The combination of the chocolate and the fruit flavors make for a smooth, delicious treat that you can take on a picnic or to work with in the mornings.

Another easy to make recipe you can experiment with is a chocolate peanut butter sandwich.

In fact, one recipe I love is delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cereal that you can take on an airplane. All you need is a box of non-stick tortilla chips, and some cold milk. Mix together until the chips are the consistency of pudding and then add a little milk and let it set. When you take it out of the freezer, it’s still incredibly warm! And who doesn’t like a hot chocolate snack during the day?

The most important ingredient when creating any of these delicious recipes is to choose the right chocolate. It has to be rich and creamy, not bland and dry. It also helps to use quality ingredients, such as low-fat or non-fat nuts, dried fruits, and whey protein. These provide energy and help your body absorb the nutrients from the chocolate, rather than just waiting to get stored as fat in your body. The chocolate can be almost any color – white, milk, dark, and even green are all great options. As long as you use quality ingredients, you will create a delicious and healthy treat that your family will love.

When you make these recipes, be sure to adjust the ingredients to be appropriate for a diet with a gluten free diet. Because it has many ingredients, it may seem confusing at first, but if you have a sweetener in the recipe, such as honey or maple syrup, be sure to read the labels to make sure you don’t use more than the specified amount. Many recipes call for milk, but if you can’t use this type of milk, try using soy milk instead. Another option would be rice milk. Many recipes will call for vanilla ice cream or yogurt, but you can also substitute for these items as well.

Bottom Line

Most recipes will ask you to stir the chocolate into the milk and then mix well. Before pouring it in a glass or plastic bowl, allow it to mix thoroughly. Use a wooden spoon to break up the chocolate as you stir it in. Mix the powder well into the milk until it creates a paste-like substance. Once it is combined well, pour it into your serving glasses and allow it to warm up before drinking. Some people like to eat it right out of the fridge, while others want it warm under their coffee table.

There are also many different options for these types of protein powder. You can use regular milk or soy and also can bake chocolate chip cookies and brownies for treats. If you are trying to lose weight, you should also consider trying some of the shake options as they are also known to help burn fat. Chocolate protein smoothie recipes are fun, healthy and filling, and there is something for everyone.
