Vanilla Caramel Protein Crepe
Move aside, pancakes! Your thinner and more hip cousin has just arrived. This recipe will get you excited to whip up an easy-breezy, protein-smothered crepe and then proceed to dress it with copious amounts of any toppings you wish—bananas, peanut butter, Nutella, strawberries, or even savory items like ham.
Holy crepe, Batman!
Quite frankly, these round, bite-sized chompers filled with chocolate and almond butter will grant you the powers to hit incredible PRs on your squat day. 'Nuff said.
Popeye's Protein Shake
No one cannot deny the swoll-ness of Popeye, the 1920s naval icon! Soak up some serious nutrition and energy from this shake; it combines spinach, good saturated fats, a trio of delicious fruits, sweet honey, and a huge hit of protein. Even the ol' sailor man himself will grow spinach-green with envy!
"Getting Siggy With It" Frosting
This frosting is infused with so much protein and flavor that one taste will make you get down and jiggy with it. Use this frosting to top cupcakes, muffins, and fruit, or you can just eat it straight up. No judgment here.
BPI "Muscle-Maker" Muffins
As they say (and by they, I actually mean me), "Make muffins, make muscles." This is yet another recipe that uses both vanilla protein powder and Siggi's yogurt, but I assure you the result will be nothing short of euphoric, not to mention anabolic. Let the protein pile on by adding the "Getting Siggy With It" frosting!
