My Favorites - The Best Chocolate Protein Powder Recipes
1. Mini No-Bake Chocolate Protein Pie
No-bake chocolate pudding pie is my favorite “pie” during the holidays, and it’s definitely not something that I would consider nutritionally dense. While I will always enjoy the real thing guilt-free on special occasions, it’s nice to have a miniature version that’s packed with protein and full of flavor that I can enjoy anytime I want! With 17g of protein and just 240 calories, this Mini No Bake Chocolate Protein Pie is perfect for using up that chocolate protein powder.
2. Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Shake
Move over Shamrock Shake, there’s a way better option! Whether you’re looking for a healthier version of your favorite seasonal shake or you simply want to enjoy a decadent, chocolate mint treat, our Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Shake is one of the best. Not only does it manage to pack in 30g of protein, but there are some sneaky vitamins and minerals in there, too!
3. Avocado Banana Chocolate Protein Pudding
Remember eating those delicious pudding cups as a kid? They’re such an easy sweet treat but don’t lend a lot when it comes to hitting your nutrition goals. If you have a container of chocolate protein powder around, whip up a batch of our Avocado Banana Protein Pudding! This thick, creamy, and delicious snack is ideal for those who want to hit their protein, consume plenty of whole food nutrients, and do so in 10 minutes or less.
4. Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Dip
Chocolate and peanut butter are hands-down my favorite flavor combination ever, which is why this Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Dip is at the top of my list when I’m craving it. With 28g of protein per serving and an irresistible texture, it’s easy to see why this recipe using chocolate protein powder has been one of our most popular.
5. German Chocolate Overnight Oats
Overnight oats are one of the best breakfast options for those who are busy and on the go. With just a little bit of prep the night before, you can enjoy an incredibly satisfying, protein-dense breakfast that will keep you full for hours. We use a whole scoop of chocolate protein powder along with Greek yogurt in our German Chocolate Overnight Oats to get you a whopping 35g of protein to start your day.
6. Copycat Wendy’s Frosty Protein Shake
Is there anything more refreshing than a cold, creamy Wendy’s Frosty? They’re seriously the best. We took that same concept to create a healthier, more protein-rich version of the Wendy’s Frosty and it’s a recipe that we continue to get love from the community from. With 28g of protein and a secret ingredient to give it that extra creamy texture, we can’t help but crave this shake!
7. Mini Chocolate Protein Donuts
Here at FHM, we have an “all foods can fit” mindset, which means we are 100% on board with eating a donut every once in a while. But there’s also nothing wrong with making small tweaks to meet your goals, particularly when you have macro-based or high-protein goals. If you love donuts, grab your favorite chocolate protein powder, and make this fluffy, delicious Mini Chocolate Protein Donuts.
