Blog PostFive fun recipes that prove protein powder food can be delicious

January 18, 2022

Recipes that perfectly mask the taste of protein powder are so hard to come by. Even when the protein powder has a pleasant, subtle flavour, such as Vital Proteins‘ marine and bovine collagen powders, foods that can pass for otherwise normal are still preferred. And because we want our food to taste as equally amazing as it is nutrient-dense, many of us have been searching for the perfect balance for years, often to disappointing results. Who hasn’t had the misfortune of putting a lot of time and energy into a new promising recipe, only to end up hating it?

If you can relate, you’re far from the only one. Regardless of how pleasant a protein powder tastes, sometimes it just doesn’t mesh in the way we want it to. Luckily though, there are so many tried and true recipes out there just waiting to restore your faith in a delicious protein-enriched meal. Vital Proteins, in particular, has been leading the way with their tasty nutrient-rich recipes, some of which we’ve gathered here to help you out.
