I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Orgain. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I love using protein powder in smoothies. Honestly, that’s what I have been using it for since July of last year. Green smoothies have been a favorite go-to drink for me in the morning. They are filling and even more so with added protein powder. My husband just mixes his with water and drinks it before and after working out. But did you know there are other ways you can use this powder?
What are your favorite ways to use protein powder?
Orgain Organic Protein
I recently saw Orgain at my local Costco and fell in love on the spot. I’d previously been buying non-organic protein powder but was so happy to find an organic product. Orgain was created by Dr. Andrew Abraham — a cancer survivor. He was looking for high-quality nutrition during his cancer treatment and became inspired to develop delicious nutrition products with the highest quality organic ingredients.
Orgain Protein Powder is made from organic plant-based protein including:
- brown rice
- pea proteins
What I love, besides it being an organic product, is that Orgain Organic Protein has a smooth, creamy texture. Many protein powders do not mix well into dishes and often feel “grainy”. Orgain does a great job at creating a product that is palatable and tasty.
20 Protein Powder Recipe Ideas
Obviously, you can add a scoop of Orgain Organic Protein to your favorite smoothie recipe. That has been my go-to way of consuming this powder. But now I am going to start adding it to food and recipes for an even better food and health experience.
Here are 20 food ideas that you can add protein powder to. Baking with protein powder is a popular choice since vanilla and chocolate flavored protein powder goes well with baked goods. But you can also simply add it to the foods you are already consuming.
- rice crispy treats
- protein bars
- french toast
- spaghetti sauce
- snack balls
- mashed potatoes
- hot chocolate
- pizza crust

These are great ideas. It’s always a good idea to find ways to add protein to your diet, and protein powder lends itself to being an ingredient in other recipes.

These are great ideas. I had no idea you could put them in things other than smoothies!

I am supposed to use whey protein powders. I like them the best in smoothies, but being able to put them in yogurt sounds good.
I’ve heard of people putting them in things like mac-n-cheese, but your list sure expands on that idea!
