Yesterday I posted about how you can have your protein and get a fun luxury treat at Starbucks. Well today I wanted to share a quick idea for protein powder. I get my protein powder at Max Muscle in Springfield. I’ve posted different ways to use it too – baking it into cookies and pancakes. But my friend Kira shared with me that I could use a half of a scoop in my greek yogurt to cut the bitterness of the yogurt. Genius!
If you use 1 cup of non fat plain greek yogurt and 1/2 scoop of your protein powder you have:
190 calorie snack with 10 grams carbs, 0 grams fat, 35!! grams protein, and 8 grams sugar!!!
Another option is to add 1/2 scoop of protein powder to 1/2 cup of cottage cheese (I like 1% fat)
140 calories, 8 carbs, 2 grams fat, 23!! grams protein, and 5 grams sugar.
So try out a new way to use that protein powder. Bump up your protein intake in in an easy peasy way!
Thanks for the idea Kira! And stop by Max Muscle to find the protein powder that works for you!!
