With this colder weather, it is much more difficult to be motivated to drink protein shakes after workouts, especially after working out in the evening. Instead, I have been incorporating protein powder into oatmeal, waffles or pancakes, muffins, homemade bars, etc. Here is an amazing recipe where I added some protein powder to yogurt! If you like thick yogurt, the protein powder makes this super thick!
- 1 container coconut greek yogurt (I used So Delicious vanilla flavor)
- 3 tbsp pumpkin puree
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tbsp vanilla protein powder (I used PlantFusion)
- 1 tbsp hemp seeds
Directions: Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and stir until smooth. (You may need to press any lumps of protein powder with the back of a spoon to separate.)
This protein yogurt can even be enjoyed for a light breakfast, a snack, or dessert!
