I love to make a breakfast shake with it. I use chocolate whey protein, a cup of frozen fruit and a half-glass of skim milk in a blender. It's like cheating! I usually drink it before I go to a boot camp/workout.

Awesome site for baking with protein powder.

Put it in oatmeal! :)

I use Body Fortress Vanilla Whey Isolate powder in all these.

Stick it in the blender with avocado, half and half and some pumpkin pie spice. its sweet enough with just the protein powder heart

Mix it with Oatmeal ( when i ate oatmeal!) if AFTER the Oatmeal has been cooked.

Blend it with Applesauce and Cinnamon and some milk, almond milk or half and half and some butter...delicious apple pie protein shake!drinker

Unsweetened Almond milk and 1 scoop of powder in the blender... add whatever fruit strikes your fancy.

It does NOT go well into tomato soup or scrambled eggs. Even though it says on the label it mixes well into everything. Or maybe I'm just doing it wrong.

But it does go with PB, banana, ovaltine, orange metamucil and berries. I either make a chocolate one or an orange one but don't mix them all together.

My favorite way to have it is to mix it with lo-cal chocolate milk, peanut butter and a banana.
Its pretty filling and tastes soooo good, but a little high on the calorie side. That's why I only have it after a weight workout. To give my muscle what they need after a heavy weight workout.
Otherwise, I mix it with skim milk or skim milk and fruit.
I tried it in Oatmeal and greek yourgart but didn't like it.
I've tried it in protein bars (made by someone else) and they were tasty.

Mix it with yogurt and skim milk

has some shake ideas, I made the cake batter one today and thought it was pretty good.

We use it to make pancakes: 1 cup oats, 1 scoop powder, some cinnamon, and enough water to get it to pancake batter consistency - blend it all up and then cook it just like pancakes.

And since we buy pea protein (which doesn't go all that well in fruit smoothies anyway), I've been experimenting with adding it to soups and last night I even mixed it in with some pizza sauce to give my home made whole wheat pizza some extra protein.

^these (replace the coconut flakes with protein powder -or any dry ingredient, such as nuts or seeds- and either add the flaxseed or, if you're like me and never have that ingredient, replace it with more oats)

She also has some other ideas for using it in recipes. I want to try the protein peanut butter muffins.

I usually eat it with french cheese, or oatmeals. i never take it with water or milk. I also use it in lot of recipes.

I also snort it sometimes

maybe i should also try to inject it to my vain, perhaps it will work better, goes straight to your blood stream

Already tried, but with whey isolate, it turned thick mixed with red globules. next time I'll try to ask for whey concentrate

If you think whey isolate is bad, you should try the casein. Oy vey!
May 12, 2012 5:53 PM
I guess i'm wierd i like it mixed with water ...........

I use the "NOW whey protien isolate dutch choclate" tastes good to me.

Have mixed it with pasteurized egg white, lol, but that doesn't help you, it was an effort not to do so many powders and be more natural, so it may be an option, ie, go for pasteurized egg whites instead but you would still prob need to hide the flavor, they are a bit yuki.
I have also added the chocolate flavored protein to oats in a morning, it was ok, but I find a straight protein drink the easiest.
If you really wanna make a fruit smoothie and use your powder that way, that is real nice, but well calories...

I mix mine with water not milk.

I put it in smoothies, shakes, yogurt, oatmeal, cookies, cold oatmeal, and anything that it can mix well with
May 12, 2012 6:10 PM
I snort mine~ (kiddin')

I blend it with unsweetened almond milk and peanut butter or almost butted, a couple ice cubes = delicious chocolate shake.
May 12, 2012 6:10 PM
First find a protein powder you like the flavor of but here's my fave recipe. Choc Shakeology, half water, half skim milk, half a banana, tbsp greek yogurt blended, add an oz of sliced almonds and pour into popsickle trays and freeze. Its a delish, healthy and low cal frozen treat. You can also subsitute soy or coconut milk.

- Add it to pancake batter
- Make a brownie

Ok, THESE two OM NOM suggestions stuck out at me as something I am definitely going to try! Thanks everyone for the great ideas!!

Try jamie eason's chocolate protein bars:

I usually add Greek yogurt to the mix (more protein) and spread some peanut butter on top (healthy fats) before eating them yummers!!
May 12, 2012 6:17 PM

Myself, well I mix it with almond milk, ice, Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder, and some instant coffee granules. Protein mocha frappucino!

I've got to get some instant coffee to try this now.
