Protein Packed | Nutella Shake + Power Cakes

Protein is essential in everyone’s diet and especially important in diets of those who workout. Protein helps hair, skin, and muscles. After a long workout, your body needs protein to help rebuild itself. I found two delicious recipes to share with you all!

One way to get protein into your body is by drinking protein shakes. Drinking shakes post workout are essential. I’m always trying new recipes and I never drink the same shake in a row, unless I’m obsessed with it! Nutella is so delicious and I wanted to incorporate it into my post workout shakes. With the protein powder added in, this shake has 19 grams of protein.

I’ve been loving the FitMiss Delight protein powder. It has 16 grams of protein alone. It leaves me feeling full and the vanilla chai flavor is delish!

Indulging in nutella with half the guilt? Sounds perfect! Lets get started!

You will need:

1 cup of Almond Milk

1 scoop of FitMiss Delight

1 TBSP of Nutella

Simply blend together with ice and enjoy!

Now onto the Protein pancakes. I have been wanting to try protein pancakes for a while and came across the brand, Kodiak Cakes, on Instagram one day.

Later that night I went to Target and I saw them on the shelf! Talk about a coincidence. My fiance always wants protein packed foods,too. We decided to give them a try and surely enough, they are delicious!

They have 14 grams of protein in just 4 pancakes! They are really thin and light, so it hardly feels like you’re eating 4 pancakes. Depending on how much protein you want, there are 3 different ingredient options.

Option 1 – 1 cup of mix + 1 cup of water = 14 grams of protein

Option 2 – 1 cup of mix + 1 cup of milk = 18 grams of protein

Option 3 – 1 cup of mix + 1 cup of milk + 1 egg = 21 grams of protein

It takes less than 30 seconds a cake to make. Top with light syrup or your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Are you getting enough protein?! Try both of these recipes! You wont regret it!
