Congratulations to our Winners!
Winning recipes submitted by Alvina Green and Tandi V.

We always say that protein is the building block of these things we call “muscles”. In addition, protein happens to be one of the most satiating macronutrients – simply stated, it keeps us fuller longer. Unfortunately, protein is underconsumed across the board. We don’t eat nearly enough!!!

Considering protein is one of the major components of carb cycling, and is the perfect companion to both carbs and fat, I figured I’d give a little crash course in one of the most convenient sources of protein: POWDER!!!! And don’t worry…protein powder is NOT just for shakes anymore.

Before we go too far, you should know that NOT all protein powders are created equally. When choosing the powder that is right for you, you should know the difference between an all-protein supplement and a protein meal replacement.

All-protein supplement powder is NOT a complete meal, and should never be consumed as one. Along with this kind of a powder, you would need to add in carbs or fats (or both, depending on the plan you follow) to complete your meal. While this can be a more convenient protein option over meats, you still have a bit of legwork to complete the meal. Choose one that’s low in fat (less than a couple grams), low in carbs (will naturally have around 5 grams), and 15-25 grams of protein per serving (scoop sizes vary per brand).

If you are anything like the Powell Pack, and need your meals ready to go QUICK, then you should look for a protein meal replacement powder. What do we recommend? Our Powell Perfect Protein Shakes, of course. This is why we designed them…because we NEEDED something fast and delicious that we could rely on to give us (and our kids) the nutrition we need.?They are the perfect combination of protein, carbs, and healthy fats, so you get everything you need in one shake! Did I mention how amazing they taste?? Chris and I debate this often – I like the chocolate ice cream, Chris likes the vanilla ice cream ;).  Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom to enter to win some of your own!!

But let’s not get carried away here. We don’t need to confine our favorite powder to a shaker bottle, gosh darn it. There are many other ways to incorporate it into a diet. Here are a few ideas:

  • Sprinkle a spoonful of vanilla protein powder on your oatmeal or favorite whole grain cereal for a bit of added sweetness and an extra punch of protein.
  • Add a spoonful of powder to natural applesauce.
  • Try substituting a ½ cup of protein powder for a ½ cup of flour in your favorite baked goods recipes. You might need to add a bit of liquid since the powder is pretty absorbent.
  • Mix a spoonful into your favorite plain Greek yogurt.
  • Type “creative uses for protein powder” in your favorite search engine, and you’ll be surprised at all the ideas and recipes you’ll find!

Here’s a yummy recipe to try out—it’s Powell Pack approved! 🙂

  1. I am looking for a protein shake mix. Could you name a few that you recommend so I could talk to my doctor about it. Thank you.

    1. Hi Eunice: In general, we recommend low fat (less than 3g), low carb (less than 5g), with around 20-25g of protein per serving. Other than that, go with what you like best! 🙂

  2. Vemma is discontinuing the protein shakes 🙁 what type do you suggest now? My favorite was the chocolate. I’m having a hard time switching…

    1. Hi Megan: In general, Chris and Heidi recommend low-fat, low-carb protein powders with around 20 grams of protein per serving. If you’re following one of their carb cycles, this would count as the protein portion of any meal. Hope that helps!

  3. Hi, can you tell me which protein powder you recommend, going to start the extreme cycle on Monday and am trying to get everything together, the store clerk asked me what type and as I am fairly new to the powders I did not know what to say. Thanks.

  4. I use ISO 100 one scoop or Syntha 6 Cookies and cream half scoop
    I added half frozen banana
    one cup unsweetened coconut milk
    1/4 cup almonds

    blend all Delish! it tastes like icecream!

  5. Mm mm I LOVE protein powder and can’t wait to try those pancakes! Honestly, I didn’t know there were so many uses for powder so I’m thrilled about this post 🙂 Ive been eating this everyday for breakfast: 1 frozen banana, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, 1 cup of almond milk, and a nice big scoop of vanilla protein powder! So easy and simple but amazing. Keeps me full for hours and gives me energy to start the day (and as a full-time college senior, I definitely need the energy!). Thanks for helping me on this journey to find a happier and healthier me 🙂

  6. One scoop vanilla protein powder (sprouted vegan or casein) one scoop almond or coconut flour and three eggs. Delicious protein pancakes. Never tried Powell protein powder but would like to.

  7. I see this is an older post and I didn’t read through all of the comments, but wanted to add that I have rolled fruit in the powder…strawberries, pineapple and melons. The leftover I mix with water or a little unsweetened almond milk. Great snack!

  8. I really LOVE chocolate, but I prefer the vanilla when it comes to the protein shakes. I find the chocolate is to rich!! I want to try those pancakes, sounds delicious!!

  9. Help. I would love to try all of these great recipes involving protein powder, but cannot tolerate any sort of dairy. What “whey free” protein powder do you recommend?
    Thanks for your help. Love your website, show. . everything: )

  10. But what kind of Protein is it, Heidi? I have trouble with different kinds, the best for me is Why Isolate proteins. What kind is yours made from?

  11. Hi Heidi!
    I’ve tried your Powell protein shake Pancake. In the Bod-e program is not aloud to use fat with carbs, so I used skim milk instead of almond milk and I made the pancake with cook paper in the pan! Also works very well, just is not quite as airy and crispy. I’m documenting my 12 Week Challenge on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCso0wSvev2DRK4Oaz0gSw5A
    Thank you for your tips and wish your family all the best!
    Hope we meet us at Vienna in septemper. In Munich we have missed us! I was also pregnant and wanted to make a photo with you! 😉
    Bye Pia

  13. Chocolate protein powder in a blender with a frozen banana and a small scoop of almond butter and some almond milk and add a few cubes of ice. Yum!

    1 cup of fresh spinach
    4 whole strawberries
    1 tb almond butter (optional)

  17. I love mixing chocolate protein powder with almond milk,frozen banana and peanut butter! I just received Shakeology but would love to try Powell Protein.

  18. I use protein powder in meatloaf, chili, Mac and cheese. Potato leak soup, corn chowder. It’s endless, it blends into plenty good recipes.

    You mix it, put it in a small Mason jar overnight and the next morning it’s ready to eat ! You can change the yogurt flavour or type of fruit you add and the recipe is always different.

  25. I found this recipe. I love it! However, I do change it up a bit. So look for my comments/different options that I mention; they will be in ALL CAPS AND/OR IN PARENTHESIS, okay? Great! So here it is – enjoy!

    THE SINGING CANARY

    Ingredients:
    2 lemons
    4000 mg Vitamin C (buffered ascorbic acid powder or tablets or whatever is in your cupboard that does not include sugar or dyes)
    1 tsp. non irradiated Turmeric powder
    1 flat, tsp. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
    2 tsp. Whey Protein Powder (I USE 1 SCOOP)
    3 generous pinches of high mineral salt like Celtic Sea Salt (IT REALLY DOES TASTES GOOD – HONEST!)
    3 splashes vanilla extract,
    Pure Stevia Extract to taste
    * Optional 4-8 drops of Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil of Lemon

    Directions:

    1.Peel only the yellow rind off two lemons using a sharp pearling knife, leave as much of the white pith intact (the bioflavonoids in the white are an important, healing component of the drink). Slice each lemon into four chunks, take out the seeds and throw lemon pieces into your blender with 3 cups of water. Blend well.

    2.Time to sieve this liquid because as you?ll want your Canary smooth and creamy. The easiest way is to pour the ingredients through a nylon mesh bag into a bowl or pitcher. You can purchase these bags at a paint store very inexpensively. Squeeze the bag well and allow all the lemony goodness to ooze out. This part is super fun. It?s worth a trip to the paint store for a few of these bags as you can make homemade cheese and almond milk with them. If you want to make this drink now and you don’t have a bag, then use an old nylon stocking or a fine sieve. That?ll work. (I WOULD THINK YOU COULD USE CHEESECLOTH, BUT I ENJOY THE PULP SO I DON’T STRAIN IT)

    3.Pour your fresh juice back into the blender. Add all the other ingredients and blend really well.

    4.Fill a two quart glass mason jar with ice to the tippy top and then pour your SINGING CANARY juice over the ice. If it doesn’t reach the top then add more water to your jar.

    5.Put on a lid on the jar and shake like you are a professional drink mixer. Un cap… taste and … OWN IT!!!!! Quite a bit of stevia is required to combat the strong flavors of lemon pith and turmeric and to balance out the Celtic Sea Salt. If your Canary has too biting a flavor, add a little more stevia and/or vanilla. (I ONLY USE 1 PACKET OF STEVIA.)

    I ADD MY ICE CUBES RIGHT TO THE BLENDER. I ENJOY IT THICK AND “PULPY” LIKE A TRUE MILKSHAKE, THAT WAY YOU CAN ENJOY EVERY LAST DROP WITHOUT ANYTHING LEFT ON ICE CUBES!)

    I LIKE ADDING 1/2 CUP OF FRESH FROZEN CRANBERRIES (I BOUGHT THEM FRESH AT CHRISTMAS TIME WHEN THEY ARE ON SALE. THEY ARE OKAY TO FREEZE.

    SOMETIMES I ADD THESE FOR CARBS; USUALLY A COMBO – NOT ALL AT ONE TIME BUT DO AS YOU LIKE!:

    FRESH GINGER – YUMMY!

    1/2 – 1 BANANA FOR EXTRA POTASSIUM.

    1/2 CUP OF BLUEBERRIES FOR EXTRA ANTIOXIDANTS.

    CINNAMON AND/OR NUTMEG.

    A NOTE ABOUT CRANBERRIES: Also in much the same way as cranberries may help prevent bacterial attachment to the lining of the urinary tract to prevent UTI’S, they may also help prevent attachment of bacteria to the stomach lining. There is already some preliminary evidence that cranberry may help protect us from stomach ulcers in this way.

    Whole cranberries consumed in dietary form?in comparison with purified cranberry extracts consumed in either liquid or dried supplement form?do a better job of protecting our cardiovascular system and our liver. Several groups of researchers have summarized their health benefit findings by pointing out that it is the synergy among cranberry nutrients (rather than individual cranberry components) that is responsible for cranberry’s health benefits. This synergy is only found in the whole berry as consumed in food form. This rule about whole dietary intake appears to apply to the antioxidant benefits, anti-inflammatory benefits, and anti-cancer benefits of cranberry.

    THE GOOD ELEMENTS OF THIS SHAKE AS NOTED IN THE RECIPE I FOUND:
    An adrenal healer, cancer fighter and slimming sipper. It is 2 quarts of sustaining liquid, low in calories but dense in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

    The first reason this shake is a fat burner is because it is laced with turmeric. Turmeric intake is directly associated with increased healthy fat loss and decreased insulin. Curcumin, a plant based polyphenol found in turmeric, helps regulate the body’s metabolism. Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory mechanisms actively fight against obesity.

    High levels of inflammation are associated with obesity due to the presence of immune cells called macrophages in the body’s fat tissue. These cells produce cytokine molecules that inflame the organs of the body. Turmeric taking center stage in the SINGING CANARY suppresses the number and activity of these nasty, inflaming, cells.

    The inclusion of lemon in the Singing Canary adds strength to its weight loss abilities by reducing hunger. Lemons also control blood sugar by slowing down the absorption of sugar into the body. The inclusion of the therapeutic grade, lemon essential oil kicks this up an extra notch.

    The Extra Virgin coconut oil which gives the SINGING CANARY its orange creamsicle dreaminess and helps to melt fat by raising your thermogenic temperature. The Middle Chain Fatty acids in coconut oil are metabolized into immediate energy not fat, so you?ll feel like moving more which burns even more calories.

    1 Cup Oats
    1/4 Cup Flax seed
    1 tsp vanilla
    3 T unsweetened almond milk
    1 1/2-2 scoops vanilla protein power

  74. Our favorite in our house is the Peanut Butter power Bars! I cut them small because they are gone in about 2-3 days! We make them at least 1 time a week! <3 them!

  75. There are so many! Let’s see if I remember right, unsweetened almond milk with peanut butter (?), scoop of sugarless chocolate pudding mix, scoop of sugarless butterscotch pudding mix, spinach and ice and blend. Its one of your buddy Drews protein shakes. Taste like a butterfinger!

I love spinach smoothies with 2 T peanut butter, 1/2 banana, 1 scoop protein powder, 3 c. spinach, 3/4 c almond milk.. Even my kids love it!!

  77. I wouldn’t make it without these brownies. 1 scoop whey protein powder, 1Tb flax seed, 2/3c egg whites, 2Tb cocoa powder and 8 drops chocolate liquid stevia. You can add a tablespoon of Nutella to make it a little more moist. Play with your toppings. 2Tb mixed with vanilla liquid stevia and drizzled on top or maybe half a teaspoon of Hershey’s syrup with banana and strawberry slices! Don’t forget to top it with reddi whip low fat! 🙂

    Mis well and cook over medium heat. Makes three thin pancakes that are so delicious, you don’t need anything else on them!

  82. One of my fav flavors is pina colada

I drink this in the morning as a quick breakfast, more of a liquidy drink or I will have for a dinner/dessert on a high carb day, more frozen like where I can spoon it 😉 it tastes delicious and it also satisfies a sweet tooth. I took it one step ahead – bought a plastic popsicle maker thing at the dollar store – poured this mixture inside (liquidy) froze and Wa-lah! Green dream protein pops!

    Mix it all together in a mason jar and leave in fridge overnight for 8 hours. Eat cold the next morning!! I know it sounds weird eating cold oatmeal, but trust me…You will be surprised how amazing this is!!

  189. I use them in homemade protein bars (my fave is a lemon bar, I add poppy seeds and vanilla protein powder, yum!). I also love to use a scoop of protein powder in my morning coffee. I blend it first in some water so it doesn’t clump up and then put it in the coffee. It makes it seem like I added cream and sugar to my coffee and adds lots of protein! xoxo

  190. I havent tried protein in any recipes but I love making shakes with it. Using chocolate protein,banana and blueberries and lots of ice

  191. Protein pancakes. Love them
    But haven’t used oatmeal so I am going to
    I corporate that going forward

  192. Not sure where it came from so I hope I’m not ripping off anyone’s copyright, it was told to me by a friend. My fave protein powder recipe is Peanut Butter Cups

    Mix 1 scoop chocolate protein powder with just enough water to make it liquidy but thick.

    Pour half of it into a cupcake or muffin mold and freeze it until it sets.

    When it’s set after about 20 min. Pour a tablespoon of natural peanut butter on top and freeze again until it’s set.

    When it’s set after about another 20 min, pour the other half of the protein powder on top and freeze again for approx 20 min more.

    Can be eaten frozen or wait until it thaws a bit.

  193. I loved the pancakes with the protein powder. My niece told me to add it to my fruit smoothies and it adds just the right texture.

  194. A good old fashion protein shake!! Boring right! I have never tried to get creative with my protein powders, I am so glad you posted this! Thank you!! I am going to try the pancakes this morning!!

    1 medium banana

  200. I love the Chocolate Ice Cream shake all by itself but I also like to use the Vanilla Ice Cream in pancakes. I use 1/3 banana, 1/3 cup egg whites and 1 scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream powder…mix well and cook like pancakes! I do find you need to wait a few extra minutes before flipping but they taste great!

    and a sprinkle of cocoa powder
    Blend & Enjoy DELICIOUS!

  202. I make mini banana muffins and substitue half the flour for protein powder. My girls haven’t noticed the difference!

  203. I like to mike protein powder and almond milk with my steel cut oatmeal in the morning. I used to eat it with brown sugar and raisins, but putting the powder in gives some sweetness and I find I don’t even miss the old way. I think I’m going to try all your recipes!

  204. I like to mix orange juice with vanilla protein powder. It reminds me of the orange and cream popsicles.

  205. I’ve never been creative enough to come up with a recipe. I just toss protein powder in a smoothie. But I was just looking up the nutrition & ingredients in your protein powder. It looks good… I need to win some & give it a try.

  206. My fitness trainer gave us a great snack recipe and I swear it’s better than a candy bar.
    1 Tbs coconut oil
    1 Tbs Almond Butter (creamy or crunchy)
    1 Tbs Protein Powder (I use Bode Powder)
    Heat in a microwave until oil is melted.
    Slice and apple and use as dipper. I’ve added oatmeal to this mixture for some added texture. IT IS DIVINE!!!

  207. My favorite protein powder recipe is
    3 egg whites
    1/2 scoop of vanilla protein
    dash of cinnamon
    1 packet of stevia

    Mix all togehter and make like a pancake. I like to top mine with cottage cheese for an extra protein punch

  208. Homemade protein bars- honey, gluten free quick oats, gluten free rice krispies, vanilla, raisins, and protein powder – mix and press into a pan and cut into squares! Its awesome way to get both my kids to eat more protein bars and they are gluten free to boot!

  209. I’m going to try this pancake recipe this weekend. I just started carb cycling this week and am already seeing the results. I have been working with a personal trainer for about two months, but the scale hadn’t moved until I start carb cycling. I’m so new to this that I’m constantly in your website and in Chris’. Thanks so much!!! My motto: I’ve got this!
