5 Protein Powder Recipes

If you’re tracking macros and struggling to make your protein intake goals every day, you’re not alone. It can be TOUGH if you’re not planning properly. The key? Have a HIGH-QUALITY protein source with every meal. Unsure what constitutes a quality protein source? Take a beat and read THIS post. What you can’t get from food, you can get from a protein supplement, specifically, a protein powder.

Your diet should consist mostly of whole, clean foods. But sometimes, supplementation is necessary. If you read THIS GUIDE ON PROTEIN SUPPLEMENTATION, you know my GO-TO powder is Iconic. I just love it – let me count the ways.

  • Complete milk protein, which agrees with my stomach
  • The taste is DELICIOUS
  • 20g of protein and ONLY 90 calories
  • The powder mixes well with water, OR they have a premixed line – also delicious.
  • Five ingredients
  • The price is right

And guess what?! You get the chance to try it for yourself!! Use THIS LINK and Code KateL15 for 15% off. Pop that code in the promo code box at checkout and have at it!!!

A shake is excellent, but sometimes I want to mix it up.

Behold, I give you FIVE recipes beyond the basic shake staring Iconic protein powder (or your powder of choice).

THE FINE PRINT

Guys, this post is SPONSORED! I am getting to collect my thoughts, write them down, create this content, and I’ll go through a detailed recap process to show the value of my partnership. But before any of that happens, I weigh my options CAREFULLY to evaluate if the product I’m serving you is WORTHY of your consumption. We’ve built this community together, it’s incredible, and nothing is worth the bottom line or a quick buck. I couldn’t WAIT for this partnership to finalize so I could share it with you. I’ve been whoring myself out courting this brand for MONTHS, and the fact they looked at me twice is blowing my mind. I’m beyond proud and honored to have this opportunity.

If you try it, tell me how much you LOVE IT!!! Because I know you will.
