What is the best thing to mix with protein powder?
Protein powder has come a long way in the past two decades! It used to be no matter what you mixed with the protein, it always tasted bad. I think that’s when people like me started to get creative trying to mask the flavor!
It’s an entirely different market now. There are protein powders with so many different dessert like flavors, that you can just use a liquid like almond milk or regular milk, and many of them will taste great! (check out my favorite tasting protein powders here.)
But one thing I have been doing more of, is just using vanilla protein powder, and adding a variety of flavor extracts, or zero calorie syrups. I like the variety of the skinny mixes here, but I also like the huge range of flavor extracts that McCormick has been adding to store shelves.
And finally, I love adding fruit to protein powder! It makes the perfect protein shake with a nice balance of protein plus carbs. (see my favorite strawberry protein shake here)
But if eating food is more satiating than a protein shake, you can add protein powder to a variety of recipes, like this protein peanut butter cup pudding!! Read on for more!
The Peanut Butter Pudding Ingredients
For this protein pudding, I used:
- Peanut butter powder– for lower calories. I love to use the PB Fit powder, although there are other brands you can try as well.
- Protein powder, I used vanilla protein powder, because it’s so versatile and can take on new flavors of whatever you add to it.
- Xanthatm gum, to thicken the pudding, rather than have it be a protein shake
- Peanut butter cup skinny syrup, for extra flavor, but totally optional.
- Almond milk to make it creamy
- And then for it to truly be a dessert, I topped the protein pudding with real Resse’s cup! Portion control is key- only used 1/2 of the Resse’s cup. Save the other half to make this again tomorrow.
