Chocolate Protein Icing

Pin It!

Break out your Canned Pumpkin! And fish out those goggles, because it’s time to dive, head-first, into a pool of chocolate protein icing. Chocolate icing so healthy you can eat the entire bowl in one sitting.

Kind of like with the recipe for Whipped Cream in a Bowl.

(See, you want to dive in, right?)

“Fudge You!” Chocolate Protein Icing

Makes 1 bowl, to be used as icing, pudding, fudge sauce, pancake sauce, face paint… Wha?? Maybe scratch that last one…

  • 1/8 cup (24g) chocolate protein powder (I used NutriBiotic)
  • a bit over 1/16th tsp salt
  • sweetener of choice, to taste
  • 2 tbsp canned pumpkin or pumpkin puree (about 30-35 grams)
  • 1/4 cup water, or other liquid (60 grams) Or more or less, depending on the thickening capabilities of the brand of protein powder you’re using
  • Optional spices and extracts if desired (I used 1/4 tsp cinnamon, to go with the pumpkin theme)
  • Also Optional cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, or melted chocolate, if you want it more chocolatey. And you can also always add fruit: banana, strawberries, raspberries…

Combine everything and mix very well. Eat cold. I don’t bother using a blender for this. A fork works fine. Dorm-room readers, rejoice!

Other ideas: Swirl into oatmeal, top with granola, use as a cupcake-topper, use in place of hot fudge sauce on ice cream… As usual, the possibilities are endless! A word of caution: If you don’t like the protein powder you start with, you won’t like this icing/pudding. And it’s not meant to taste like the normal hot fudge sauce you buy at the store; I don’t really know how to describe the taste, but I love it!

    This sounds delicious! My favorite way to use my brown rice chocolate flavored protein powder is in my breakfast smoothie- unsweetened almond milk, frozen banana, and the powder.

  2. VeggieGirl says:

    I love making protein brownie batter/cookie dough (recipe courtesy of “Foods of April”).

  3. homecookedem says:

    Oh yum, that looks great!! I’m with Veggie Girl, I love April’s protein brownie batter and cookie dough!!

  4. vegangal says:

    katie please post the recipe for the brownies now!!!! i cant wait i mean i will if i have to but i dont want to they look so yummylicious! your a genius and so sweet too! xoxoxo

  5. Kate says:

    You read my mind once again! I just bought protein powder and was looking for yummy things to do with it! Thanks CCV!

  6. Mary says:

    I never got on the protein powder bandwagon :(
    I just haven’t found a brand I like. But that icing still looks delish!

  7. anonymous says:

    My favorite way is foodsofapril’s protein cookie dough. Have you ever tried that?

  8. Anonymous and others,
    It’s so funny that you’d all mention her blog because I *just* started reading it yesterday!

    I stumbled across it a loooong time ago thanks to a comment she left on mine, and I made a mental note to add it to my reader, but then I completely forgot about it. Protein cookie dough, didya say?? Sounds like I’ve been missing out! I’ve got some catching up to do lol ;).

  9. Valerie says:

    I wonder if the kiddos would warm to this. Goodness knows they’d love the idea of getting to eat a bowl of icing!

    We’ve been making your “whipped cream in a bowl” recipe now about every week! It really comes in handy as a vegan family.

  10. Inspired says:

    I could definitely dive into that! The water (err chocolate) looks great 😉

  11. april says:

    Haha, your icing is just like my protein cookie dough, except mine is thicker and has nut butter!!

  12. april says:

    Oh, and mine doesn’t have pumpkin.. definitely going to try that!!

  13. Sarahishealthy says:

    I love putting it in oatmeal!

  14. Jenny says:

    I unintentionally created my own protein “icing” by adding too much liquid to April’s protein brownie batter.. it’s WONDERFUL!

    GIMME DAT BROWNIE RECIPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! please :)

    love you!

  15. eatandrun says:

    Have you ever made protein ice cream? It’s my favorite thing to make. Just Vita-mix ice cream + protein powder :). Maybe you could add it to your chocolate-strawberry ice cream in place of the Amazing Grass?

  16. Kelly Michelle says:

    omg, I swear we are sauce soulmates (remember the whole nut butter/banana thing) Just this past week I have been eating my natural flavored protein powder blended with carob/cocoa powder, almond milk and banana, quite the same idea no?

  17. Run Sarah says:

    That is awesome – thanks so much for sharing, I cant wait to make it a I just bought soy chocolate protein powder.

  18. Katie says:

    Awesome! I hope that you post more protein powder recipes! I am ALWAYS open for new ideas. :) there are a recipe for those protein batter brownies/pancakes?

  19. Katie,
    Definitely!! Just use the regular recipe for the “brownie batter pancakes” below:

    But sub protein powder for the Amazing Grass :).
    I’ll definitely try to post more protein powder recipes in the near future. I really want to make brownie batter muffins/cupcakes and I have a plan for vegan ho hos :)

  20. Kelly Michelle,
    Sounds similar–and similarly yummy!–to me :)

  21. Protein powder schmotein powder. Just pour yourself a beer!

  22. Those brownies seriously look amazing!!!
    I have just gotten into the whole world of protein powders and I’ve tried April’s protein muffins and they are awesome!!! But I also like the just basic protein powder in a smoothie!

  23. I’ve never used it besides in a smoothie or overnight oats….but I’m looking to branch out!

  24. abby says:

    yummmmmmmmy! i want to go for a swim in you, chocolate icing! :)

  25. Monica says:

    So far, I’ve only put my vanilla protein powder into oatmeal…but I love it that way! With a banana it makes the oatmeal taste like banana oatmeal cookie dough! It’s awesome!

  26. sarah says:

    What a great idea for the icing, I will use that for sure!

  27. Jess says:

    Yum, looks great!

  28. I wish I HAD some canned pumpkin!!! It’s hard to find in my stores once Thanksgiving season is over. Do you stock up?

    Your pudding looks ‘elicious! :mrgreen:

  29. Yum, that chocolate icing looks divine!

  30. Justine says:

    I am yet to hop on the protein powder train. I am not usre why, as there are so many tastey recipes out there that call for it! Hm…..

  31. BroccoliHut says:

    Mmm this sounds delicious! I am a fan of all things pudding-like (ahem, your Banana Bread in a Bowl).
    My favorite use of protein powder is probably in a good ol fashioned smoothie or stirred into oat bran.

  32. Simply T says:

    That looks yummier than any of Bill Cosby’s puddin’ pops!

  33. Julia says:

    Yummm, I’m dying to get that brownie recipe!!!

    Currently, I like taking 2 tbs protein powder and mixing it with 1/2 tbs dark cocoa powder, 1/8 tsp baking powder, 2 packets of stevia, and a little bit of instant coffee crystals. then, I add in 2 tbs eggwhites and 1 tbs pumpkin puree. All the contents then get mixed together and microwaved for 1 minutes, forming a protein cake :)

    That’s my favorite way (or should I say whey hehe) to ingest protein powder!

    Although, I do buy ready to drink shakes, too, which are wonderful for protein icecream. To make this delectable treat, I freeze 8 ounces of the shake in an ice tray, and simply refrigerate the remaining 3 ounces. Then, once the icecubes are solid, I add them, along with the refrigerated portion of my shake, to my magic bullet. In goes some guar and xanthum gum, along with a bit of vanilla extract and salt (salt allows the ice to melt and bind). Finally, I blend everything and devour!

    I love my protein 😀

  34. Eagerly awaiting vegan ho-ho’s. I’d also like to put in a request for vegan Little Debbie oatmeal cream pies. 😉

  35. I think we’re on a psychic wavelength! Nooch, iron, protein…we’re both all over it :) Ok so I did a major post about Vegan Protein a week or two ago and then just recently about my own issues w/ protein powders. Although I am ok with 1 scoop, more is not better for me. Can’t wait to hear bout your Nutribiotic info you alluded to. I do either Jay or Sun Warrior but I prefer the later. I have used Nutri in their plain and it was very…meh. Sounds/looks like the chocolate is good by the looks of your recipe. Anyway, can’t wait to hear what you have to say!

  36. Two words: holy YUM, Katie!
    Havea a great night!
    Brazilian XOXO´s,

  37. Jess says:

    Oh myyy, that pudding looks delicious, girl!
    <3 jess

  38. Anna says:

    Looks deeelish!!!!

  39. Michal says:

    This looks oh so yummy!

  40. Danielle says:

    I love your creations and your fun approach to healthy eating. I don’t keep protein powder around regularly, but I’ve made shakes with chocolate soy ice cream and protein powder, peanut butter, and bananas. Have you tried hemp protein powder?

  41. Christina says:

    I need to get on the protein powder bandwagon!

  42. Meg says:

    I LOVE using Jay Robb Vanilla Protein Powder in my oatmeal 😀 simple, yes…delicious…YES!

  43. Samantha says:

    Love the Vega Smoothie Infusion!

  44. HVL says:

    There’s a soya protein powder that I get from Holland and Barrett’s in the UK (a health-food chain). It’s alright but does have a bit of a chalky aftertaste. I like mine blended into a super smoothie with soya/oat/almond milk, a big tablespoon of peanut butter, a couple of teaspoons of cocoa powder, and a frozen banana. YUM!

  45. Scott in Ohio says:

    My favorite is Cinnamon Spice All Natural Whey from All The Whey.

  46. adancingyogini says:

    i used to like spirutein too, but i am sort of off soy for the moment. sometimes i just throw hemp into my smoothies and call it a day when i want more protein. i like that it makes them a little nutty.
    my boyfriend however uses whey (strawberry flavored ewww!) and i am trying to convince him to switch, so far not so good. but still trying! 😉

  47. Rebecca says:

    I don’t have much experience using protein powder. I’m using BSN dessert right now but would love to win the NutriBiotic protein powder so I can switch to something with way less artificial ingredients.

  48. My favorite brand is Met-RX Vanilla… so far!

  49. homecookedem says:

    My favorite protein powder is Bio Chem chocolate fudge!! :) I love making protein brownie batter with it! :)

  50. I like the Amazing Grass meal powders….so good in oatmeal or a smoothie!

  51. I like protein powder in oatmeal, or in protein cakes. :)

    <3 <3

  52. Zeus' Mom says:

    I don’t have a favorite because I’ve never tried protein powders, but I’d really like to. I’m sure that my fave would be chocolatey though.

  53. My favorite way to use protein powder is in a smoothie!

  54. Theresa says:

    i love the biggest loser’s chocolate protein mix

  55. Jessica says:

    I definitely put protein powder in my smoothies! The other day I added it to my oatmeal and I felt like I had a bowling ball in my belly….probably won’t be doing that again, haha. I’d love to try the chocolate rice protein though because I’ve never used flavored protein. :)

  56. Astrid says:

    I have only used protein powder once, because I haven’t made up my mind to commit to a large tub of it, yet. I got one packet of Jay Robb’s and pixed it with peanut butter, for some “cookie dough”. It was pretty fantastic, actually! But I intend to use my protein powder in my oatmeal and smoothies.

  57. jamie says:

    i add chocolate designer whey to my smoothies, oatmeal,overnight oats, breakfast cookies ….im not set on the taste, so id love to try something else!

  58. Olivia says:

    Personally, I don’t generally use protein powder, but my husband is a marathon runner (in training to do ultra marathons! Eek!), and we’re constantly trying to get enough calories and protein into him. I’ve made frosting with the powder before, for fruits and cookies–he especially likes dried papaya slices dipped in chocolate protein frosting!

  59. Chantal says:

    I use them in smoothies or in Avery’s No-Bake Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Bars (From Love Veggies and Yoga), they’re super yummy!

  60. I like vanilla whey protein….any brand!

  61. Yasmin says:

    I have yet to find a “non-chalky tasting” protein powder. I like to make banana protein bread. I love anything chocolate:)

  62. *Andrea* says:

    i love jay robb’s vanilla protein powder! tastes great with some soy milk!

  63. I’ve never tried protein powder as being over here in England it’s not really available except for weird whey ones which I’m definitely not keen to try. I’d love to win- I’d try a yummy choco/banana shake I think!
    Emma xxx

  64. Lori says:

    I don’t have a favorite brand of protein powder as I barely use it. I tend to use what my husband has in the pantry. Sometimes I add some to my oatmeal after a long run. It tastes good and I am getting some extra protein.

  65. Rick says:

    my favorite brand of protein powder is good old Ruth’s Organic Hemp Protein. I love hemp, it’s the healthiest plant in the world as far as i’m concerned, and it works very well in green smoothies! 😀

  66. haylee says:

    My favorite brand is the Spirutein, I LOOOVE the Cherries Jubilee flavor and a frozen banana! It makes the best shake EVER!

  67. valerie says:

    I love to use protein powders in my green monsters to make them stick with me longer! I don’t really have a favorite brand yet, I’m always trying something new!

  68. Kyle says:

    Oddly enough, my favorite brand of protein powder is Nutribiotic! I tried it when I first went vegan and I remember thinking “this is EASY and DELICIOUS!”

  69. I don’t have a favorite protein powder … I don’t think I’ve ever had a vegan one, but I have been watching for one to try (that isn’t too crazy expensive). I’d love to give the rice one a whirl!

  70. Leah says:

    I love Trader Joe’s vanilla hemp protein powder in smoothies

  71. Kathryn Goel says:

    Jay Robbs is my favorite but I’ve only tried that and the biggest loser one

  72. Heather says:

    i like vanilla spirutein to make breakfast cookies and protein cookie dough, however it is a bit sweet and i would like to try another other protein powder!

  73. Lauren says:

    My favorite is Aria vanilla-flavored protein for women. I love to put it in my oatmeal for extra satiety!

  74. Kristin says:

    I don’t have a favourite. I’ve barely even tried protein powder so I would love a chance to try some in a variety of different ways.

  75. Ashlei says:

    Actually Nutribiotic is my favorite brand. I’d love to win this and get to try the chocolate. I’ve only ever had the vanilla.

  76. Vegyogini says:

    I don’t generally use protein powder, but I have some samples of Warrior Food from HealthForce Nutritionals that I’ve occasionally added to a smoothie. It’s good!

  77. ashley says:

    I actually don’t have a fave, but I’ve heard great things about Jay Robb :-)

  78. Renee says:

    Don’t have a favorite yet; i’ve only tried Trader Joe’s.

  79. leangreendeane says:

    Hah, i am so sorry that you could relate to my story. That sounds awful! And my fav is definitely Navita’s Naturals Hemp Protein… It is so creamy and thick when added to water alone!

  80. Tiffany says:

    i currently use optimum nutrition 100% whey in mint chocolate – sooo tasty, but not very natural, unfortunately.

  81. Kelsey says:

    Oh my gosh, Katie. This is exactly the kind of contest I’ve been needing! lol. I’ve been looking for Nutribiotic ever since you suggested it to me but I haven’t been able to find it.

    Anyway, my current favorite protein powder is one I found at HEB the other day, Rainbow Light Protein Energizer. It’s completely natural, vegan, and the texture isn’t even that bad; my only beef (no pun intended) is that it only has 15g of protein per scoop and it turns everything green, lol.

    Right now my favorite way to use it is by sprinkling it on some popcorn with coconut oil, sea salt and cinnamon. It tastes sooo good!

    K, this book-of-a-comment is over now. :)

  82. Kelsey says:

    i’ve never used protein powder before!!! this would be great to start upping my protein intake :]

  83. Michelle says:

    I love spirutein and use the vanilla to make smoothies, and also faux cookie dough, it is delicious!

  84. Kristi says:

    I love to stir a spoonful of chocolate protein powder into my oatmeal in the morning…it makes it taste so decadent!

  85. cookeatburn says:

    So I’ve only tried a few protein powders before, and when I tried Nutribiotic’s plain protein powder and liked it, I figured why spend money trying others that I probably won’t like? LOL. I’ve been wanting to try their chocolate flavor though (without paying – funny how that works right) so I am quite psyched about this giveaway!

    On a side note, you can order giant 3lb tubs of the stuff online. I may or may not have a tub of it in the kitchen that is too big to fit in the cupboards :-P.

  86. Kristie says:

    I haven’t tried that many protein powders before but my fav so far has been my grocery store’s brand of vanilla soy protein powder. I love it just mixed with pumpkin! Or in smoothies of course.

  87. Jackie says:

    My fave is Designer Whey protein powder, it’s just so yummy!

  88. Eileen says:

    I put protein powder in your love muffins to replace some of the flour because my husband is pre-diabetic and it is a way to have a healthier profile for him.

  89. meag1219 says:

    My favorite protein is Revolutionary Technology Nutrition (RTN) available online at…DELISH. My favorite way to eat it…mash one very ripe banana, add one scoop of your favorite flavor, and 1/2 cup of oats…refrigerate overnight and eat for breakfast!

  90. Maryann says:

    I am just starting to explore all the protein powders and right now I use the vanilla soy protein powder by trader joes..not too bad, but im excited to try the chocolate kind by Amazing grass that I ordered online (supposed to arrive today!)

  91. Christin L. says:

    I really love Jay Robb’s chocolate and vanilla whey proteins… delicious in smoothies or homemade granola bars!

  92. Leslie says:

    I like making just regular ol’ smoothies with my protein powder. Boring, but good! With lots of fruit.

  93. Kat says:

    Jay Robb or Designer Whey in oatmeal with PB on top!

  94. Grace says:

    I actually use NutriBiotic’s vegan brown rice protein powder EVERYDAY for my green monsters :)

  95. Gina G says:

    like so many othersss…… i love it in my smoothies! =)

  96. Katie says:

    I use the rice powder you are giving away in smoothies :-)

  97. Lisa says:

    I also put protein powder in green smoothies.

  98. Rika says:

    I like making protein cakes using protein powder!

  99. i love adding 1/2 scoop protein to my oats in the morning. it really helps my sugar not crash and keep me fueled through a workout!

  100. Mandiee says:

    Peaceful planet is my favorite brand. I haven’t been able to find it anywhere other than my local gormet supermarket, but it’s amazing! The protein is high and it gets all of it’s added nutrients from foods like broccoli and kale. Yum!


  101. I’ve just been using a store brand whey protein in chocolate with a little cocoa powder in my green monsters and it’s been super

  102. Katie says:

    My favorite brand is Jay Robb, so far. I am trying different ones to see which are the best. Although, Nutribiotic is up there on my top list! I love to make protein cookie dough. I have yet to add nooch, but I hear that it gives it a nice cookie dough texture. :)

  103. We use Sun Warrior raw vegan protein powder, vanilla and I use it from time to time in our smoothies.

  104. Jenna says:

    I love mixing protein powder into my oat bran in the morning :)

  105. Megan says:

    I’ve never tried protein powder, but I would use it in oatmeal!

  106. sarah says:

    Iv only ever tried the vanilla bean Whey to Go protein powder( there is very limited protein powder choice in Scotland!).
    I used it to make Aprils brownie batter, it was yummy!

  107. I just got protein powder for the first time, so I don’t have a favorite, but I love making protein hot chocolate and April’s protein cakes!

    I tried your icing, but my cheap protein powder didn’t thicken very well. It still tasted good though!

  108. MaryZ says:

    I love Jay Rob Chocolate Protien Powder

  109. Evan Thomas says:

    LIterally the only protein powder I’ve had is Jay Robb, and it’s “meh” but I guess it’s my favorite by default

  110. Renée says:

    I’ve only used Spirutein (peanut butter flavour which I did NOT care for) and the Biggest Loser brand protein powder. The only problem with that is that it’s not vegan, and although I’m not 100% dairy-free, it would still be a big step up to find a good, relatively low-calorie protein powder.

  111. Midnite says:

    SoyOne’s Chocolate protein powder is my fav mixed in smoothies. XD

  112. Vanilla says:

    Well I only tried one king of protein powder, lol.
    At first I hated it, but then I created this recipe:
    ‘Carrot Muffin’ protein babies (

    and I’m in love with it!
    It’s President choice’s Whey protein isolate Vanilla flavour

  113. tori says:

    favorite protein powder is nutiva’s hemp protein. The reason we get school off is because it would be impossible to get there! The traffic and crowds of people. My school is one block from the start/finish line.

  114. jane says:

    the only protein powder i ever tried was whey powder years ago before i was vegan, and only then as a part of a power bar my mom made. so im really interested to try a vegan protein powder!

  115. Allison says:

    Katie!! I love using chocolate fudge protein powder to make chocolate muffins/cupcakes…so good!! They’re healthy and taste so sinful 😉

  116. Kaye says:

    I love Vega Chocolate which I use in Brendan’s Blueberry Chocolate Almond smoothie. I also like Amazing Grass …yes, Chocolate again. I usually only use these in smoothies but just recently Over at Love Veggies and Yoga blog, there is a coffee protein shake that I love!! It just uses Coffee, creamer, and protein with a bit of stevia! Yum Yum.

  117. veggie365 says:

    I like the Amazing Grass chocolate powders – the Superkidz, Green Superfood & Amazing Meal – all of these are good! I would love to try the Rice Protein to compare! Thanks!!

  118. Amanda says:

    My favorite way to use protein powder is in post-workout “milkshakes.” My fave combo is almond or soy milk + chocolate protein powder + banana + a little ice. YUM. Not very creative, but I like it.

  119. sophie says:

    i love protein powder in pancakes!

  120. Hilary says:

    I love making homemade cliffbars with added rice or hemp protein powder! I’d love to try chocolate :)

  121. Amanda says:

    Hmm I’ve been testing out protein powders for months trying to find “the one”. I’ve just decided that the Vega Natural Flavor powder is great for my green smoothies,d oesn’t affect flavor too much!

  122. Tiggy says:

    my favourite kind of protein powder would have to be the vanilla ice cream flavour by whey gourmet i beleive.. though it has splenda in it, which i try to avoid.. so now i use a generic brand put out by london drugs that’s sweetened with stevia! it’s not as good as my favourite, but it’s not bad either! (it’s also about half the price!)

  123. anjali says:

    my fav is sunwarrior vanilla!!!!!!

  124. jellyfish says:

    The only kind I’ve tried is Spirulina, and the cherry kind tastes a bit strange…

  125. Whitney says:

    I really love Jay Robb’s chocolate in pancakes.

  126. Shannon says:

    i haven’t tried too many, but i’ve liked jay robb’s whey and designer whey in the past!

  127. Rachel says:

    I don’t have a favorite brand but I like to blend protein powder with soy/almond milk, bananas, and berries. Yum!

  128. Sarah says:

    I dont really have a specific favorite. Their pretty pricey so i generally buy the single pouches of whatever vegan ones i find. I like adding them into things like vegan muffins, cupcakes, cookies and other “treat” foods for that added health perk and protein punch!

  129. My favorite brand of protein powder is far and away Sun Warrior! I love the texture, and the fact that it’s raw and vegan. I used to use Hemp protein, but it gave everything a grainy texture.

    Now I use Sun Warrior in my green smoothies almost every day!

  130. jam says:

    i use nutrifirst whey protein…just cus its cheap! love theway it turns my oatmeal bright pink/yellow /orange…

  131. Natalie says:

    I love Lifetime Plant Protein Powder! I have made fudge with it, but mostly I just like it in a smoothie!

  132. Julie says:

    I love Bob’s Red Mill Hemp Protein powder – I add it to green smoothies and oatmeal. Some people don’t like hemp protein, but I love it!

  133. Karen says:

    My favorite brand of protein powder is Designer Whey. I use it to make my own variation of Kristen Suzanne’s chocolate cherry bomb smoothie. I would love to win the NutriBiotic rice protein powder because my vegan sister will be staying with me this summer and I would love to make a version of the smoothie that she could enjoy!

  134. Jocey says:

    My favorite way to use protein powder is in a smoothie after a tough weights work out (which i have been doing a lot of since i’m injured and can’t run) So far my favorite is the berry flavored Vega wholefood optimizer

  135. Alex says:

    sadly I haven’t tried very much protein powder, so I don’t yet have a favorite

  136. Sarah L. says:

    My favourite use of protein powder is to bulk up my morning smoothie; it’s nice knowing I’m getting a significant percentage of my daily protein in with breakfast. Yum!

  137. Erica says:

    I’ve been using unflavored hemp or Sun Warrior powders in my smoothies. Haven’t tried them in any batters or baked goods yet.

  138. Danielle says:

    My new favorite way to use protein powder is in ice cream (frozen banana softserve style)! I’ve only been buying the little packets and have tried some hemp, soy, spirutein, and some other raw meal packets that I got as free samples! I’ve been too indecisive to make a real commitment for my occasional protein powder use!

  139. Brittany says:

    My favorite brand of protein powder is chocolate sun warrior! I put a scoop of it in a green monster smoothie almost every day along with some spinach, banana, milled flaxseed, cinnamon, and almond milk.

  140. Ariel says:

    That looks delicious! My favorite protein powder is chocolate PlantFusion, but I haven’t been able to find it since I moved to Chicago. It’s a blend of plant proteins including pea and artichoke– I know it sounds weird, but it tastes purely like chocolate and it has the smoothest, most velvety texture. I used to mix it with pumpkin, too. :)

  141. Melissa says:

    I love the Nutiva Hemp + Protein Powder, and use it almost daily in smoothies!

  142. Michelle says:

    My favorite way of using protein is:
    Vanilla or Chocolate whey protein in protein bars

  143. My favorite protein powder is Bob’s Red Mill Hemp protein powder. I don’t find it gritty at all!

  144. Nancy says:

    I use protein powder in my shakes

  145. Kate says:

    I like using it in a simple, thick smoothie… It’s gotta be thick! Adding cocoa definitely helps make it tastier =)

  146. Sara says:

    I like to add it to green smoothies to add some body.

  147. Brianna says:

    I LOVE protein powder + spinach + banana with ice cubes as ice cream. Yum. My 18 month old loves it too!

    I use BioChem Whey in choc and vanilla flavors. I love to mix it with a little water and some nut butter and eat it like pudding! You can microwave it to if you want a ‘brownie’.

  149. I once tried a rice protein powder by some sketch company “rainbow” protein. It was great though!

  150. Steph says:

    I have never used protein powder because I can never find vegan types in my community. However, I think I would really enjoy it in smoothies :)

  151. Hope says:

    I made a mocha protein shake this morn… almond breeze, cold coffee, ice and a scoop of chocolate jay robb! It was trest delicious… next time I will probably add the gums so it emulsifies better though…

  152. Jessica Zara says:

    My favourite brand of protein is most definitely Sun Warrior Brown Rice Protein powder ~ chocolate flavour of course! And I love to use it in oatmeal/oat bran (goes particularly well with pumpkin oats), shakes (standard mix is several scoops of protein, 250-300ml rice milk and a frozen nana) or…well, just straight up mixed with water into a batter. Quite honestly, I’m so addicted to it that I just want to pour rice milk into the tub, mix and eat the lot. I’m strange, I know.

  153. ThePony says:

    I don’t know what brand I use, but I like to stir vanilla protein into my cereal! It makes it taste super sweet like when I was a kid and added some sugar cubes!

  154. Becky says:

    Nutribiotic is actually my favorite! I like it in smoothies.

  155. Abbey says:

    Hmmm…I am usually picking up Jay Robb’s chocolate or vanilla but I can easily become a Nutribiotic devotee 😉
    I like to mix it in my oatmeal, almond milk, or unflavored coconut milk to add an interesting consistency. Like you, I don’t really feel like I need extra protein but the flavor is really nice!
    Thanks for offering this!

  156. Annah says:

    I have used Amazing Grass with milk, banana, peanut butter, and oatmeal.

  157. Kelly says:

    I’m not sure I have a favorite way to eat protein powder! I don’t really buy it and I’ve only ever had it in smoothies. If I did have some, though, I’d totally make this pudding!

  158. Zuzanka says:

    I like my protein to be as “whole” as possible, meaning no derivates, isolates and other frankenfoods..I prefer raw hemp protein powder and I usually add it to my oatmeal for some pairs nicely with chocolate’s brownness :))

  159. Rachel says:

    I love flavored protein powders in oatmeal and smoothies. I actually use them just for the flavors, not the extra protein :)

  160. Danielle says:

    I like to use vanilla protein powder in my oatmeal to keep me fuller for longer!!

  161. amsterwill83 says:

    I’ve only ever tried Jillian Michael’s vanilla protein powder, and so far I’ve put it in smoothies and oatmeal. I’d love to try other kinds though!

  162. Mmm….My FAVORITE protein powder is Nutiva Choc. Hemp Smoothie!!! I absolutely love making it into a shake by blending almond milk and frozen cherries!! Devine!!

  163. Sara says:

    I like jayrobb’s egg white protein powder and i usually add them into my smoothie’s or oatmeal breakfast cookies!

  164. Andrea says:

    amazinggrass is my favorite :)

  165. My fave protein powder is nutiva hemp powder. I just throw it in my morning smoothie, along with kale, banana, PB, almond milk, nooch, 1/2 an avocado, flax seeds, and extra dark cocoa powder. It sounds crazy, but it’s deeeeelicious and makes the happiest tummy each morning! :)

  166. Hannah says:

    I’ve only tried the Jay Robb ones, and only as a protein smoothie. I can’t find any of these good ones you mention in Australia… I’d so love to make this protein icing!

  167. danielle says:

    i love jay robb’s vanilla brown rice protein powder mixed in my plain yogurt!

  168. Sünne says:

    There’s acutally just one brand and flavour (plain) of vegan protein powder in Germany so that’s what I’d use in oat bran. Boring, I know.

  169. bkim says:

    i like the sunwarrior vanilla!

  170. Alexis says:

    I love the nutribiotic vanilla – great in smoothies, pancakes, oat bran and basically anything you bake that you want to up the protein in!

  171. Kate says:

    i really like aria women’s protein powder. it is a mix of soy and whey. smoothies or protein pancakes are my top uses for it.

  172. Danielle says:

    I haven’t tried any protein powders yet, but I’d love to add it to oatmeal!

  173. Erica D says:

    Love protein powder mixed with soy milk!

  174. Carol says:

    My favorite way to use protein powder is to mix it with almond milk.

  175. Bekah says:

    I actually do this all the time with my protein powder! I usually either mix it with a little almond milk and pumpkin or butternut squash canned puree and heat it up a little bit.

    But my favorite way to use protein powder is definitely Heather’s protein pancakes or protein ice cream. Naturally!
