More Protein Fun With Designer Whey

 

Oh yes. Since I already ate my way through all the Designer Whey protein bars I received with my fun protein goodies the other week (yep, they were that good) and I’m out of kabocha squash, I’ve had to make some fun new Designer Whey creations instead.

 

I also have to share a fun little workout that we’ve done in my boot camp class a couples times. I liked it the first time, but I really liked it the second time (I’m pretty sure my boot camp gals loved it), so now, I’m sharing it with you.

You’re welcome.

 

It’s quick. It should take under 10 minutes to get through. It gets your heart rate up and hits the major muscles groups. The fun thing about it is that you can time yourself and try it again in a couple weeks to see if you’ve improved.

All you need is a resistance band, a timer if you want to keep track of your time and a smile of course.

 

:Designer Whey Give Me 50

Not too shabby, yes? It’s an easy one to do if you have toddlers running around and are pressed for time (not that I would know anything about that). I will warn you though that the push ups are a little rough. Ha.

 

So….

in addition to the frosting, the White Chocolate Protein Cookie Dough and the Dark Chocolate Raspberry Protein Smoothie from last week’s post, I created a few others with some other products I got my hands on from Designer Whey.

 

First up.

It’s very important that you know you can make a Designer Whey version of the cake batter protein shake with the French Vanilla Protein Powder (or the White Chocolate Powder).

I prefer it with the French Vanilla, but I guess you can never go wrong with white chocolate. Ha.

 

 

I also felt the need to make a little protein cookie. It actually turned out to be a pretty big, flatbread-like cookie.

But hey, it was sweet, delicious and packed with good for you protein, so, I liked it (and made it more than once).

The fact that it’s flat makes it easier to top with a little NuttZo anyway. He he.

Here you go.

 

One more picture, just because.

I like the idea of a little sweet protein flatbread cookie. It might be good to do some breakfast STUFTwich experiments with. Hmmm…..

 

One last little mention.

Designer Whey also has these cute little Protein 2GO packets.

They come in three different flavors, are 50 calories each and have 10 grams of protein.

I actually bought some of these over a year and a half ago when they had just come out with them. I used them to create my Protein STURpee. I might need to revisit that recipe actually.

They’re a little creamier due to the whey protein, but the taste is good.

Right now I’m keeping a few of these stashed in my gym bag just in case I need a quick protein fix right after I’m done working out. (Ideally you should eat within 15-20 minutes after you workout.)

My favorite flavor is the lemonade one.

I saw Running Hutch do a little experiment with a Protein 2GO packet and a Nuun tablet so obviously I had to try it out.

Today I made up this little concoction to power me through the long afternoon (formerly known as nap time).

I’ve been drinking the kona cola concoction, so this was a good change and gave me a little protein fix.

Protein LemoNUUN Tea

1/2 tablet Nuun Lemon Tea dissolved in 1/2 cup water

1 packet Lemonade Protein 2GO shaken with 12 ounces water

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

 

Combine and serve over ice.

 

Yep. Good stuff.

And well, days when the boys don’t nap, this mama is also ready for bed at about 9:30 pm. Funny how it works like that, huh?

 

What kind of protein snacks, if any do you have stashed in your bag?

    I LOVE all the ways you use protein powder! Sometimes I get into a protein shake rut and these recipes help shake it up- no pun intended! You’ve mentioned putting apple cider vinegar in your drinks lately… what are the benefits from this again? Thanks :)
