The 3 Easiest Chocolate Protein Powder Recipes That Anyone Can Do

Whey protein powder. It makes you huge. It gets you jacked. Whey is the foundation of your swoll.

But like anything else you eat EVERY DAY, whey protein powder, even delicious chocolate, can get boring. I’ll show you three stupid easy ways I mix it up with my whey protein to keep it “exciting.” Don’t worry, ANYBODY can do these. Trust me.

Note: My favorite whey protein powder is Gold Standard Chocolate, which I used for all these recipes.

Stupid Simple Chocolate Protein Recipe Number 1 – Wheymeal

Most people who dislike oatmeal complain that it is SO PLAIN. Sure, old fashioned oatmeal is painfully plain. But don’t buy that flavored instant crap in the single serve packets.

Oatmeal Chocolate Whey Protein Powder

Scientists have confirmed there is no way to make oatmeal sexy. It does smell and taste JUST LIKE cocoa pebbles though!

Instead, you can spice your oatmeal with whey protein powder! Here’s what you do:

  • 1/4 Cup of Quaker Oats into microwave safe bowl
  • Add 1/2 Cup of water
  • Heat in microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds
  • Add 1/2 scoop of chocolate whey protein powder
  • Stir it up

Macros: 14g Protein, 16g carbs, 2g fat

Note 1: If you heat oatmeal in a shallow bowl for 1 minute and 30 seconds, it will overflow. Clean up will be painful. And you will hate your life. Use a deep bowl.

Note 2: Nothing is hotter than a bowl of oatmeal coming out of the microwave. Use caution and several oven mitts when removing your oatmeal from the microwave.

When to Eat Your Chocolate Wheymeal: Pre Workout, Pre Bed

Oatmeal is a GREAT source of pre workout carbs because they are fairly slow burning. Make sure you avoid instant oats, (or instant anything) as your body metabolizes insta-foods rapidly so the energy supply will be short lived.

If you mix in a little bit of whey protein powder with oatmeal before the gym, you actually have a fantastic muscle building formula. The carbs in oatmeal boost insulin, which slows muscle breakdown, and the extra protein will help in muscle growth and repair.

Also, I love mixing in some Casein protein (I still go with Gold Standard) with oatmeal around bed time. Casein protein is absorbed more slowly than whey, so it’s great before bedtime. Plus it offers you the chance to add different flavors into your protein arsenal.

Anyman Chocolate Whey Powder Recipe Number 2 – Greek Wheygurt

I love plain Greek yogurt. I didn’t always love it, but man, it packed such a powerful protein punch I had to learn to love it. Like many things good for you, Greek yogurt has an acquired taste. It’s really tart. But wait until we throw some protein powder in there.

Don’t try to measure your Greek yogurt in terms of cup sizes. It’s a royal pain because of the way it sticks to your measure cups. Instead use a scale. If you don’t own a scale, no worries. You don’t have to spend a ton of money, you can get one for less than $20. I use a cheap Taylor scale just like this one.

Protein Powder Greek Yogurt Granola Clusters

Protein Powder, Greek Yogurt, Granola Clusters. Much macros. Very wow.

Anywheys, here’s what you do:

  • 100g of Plain non-fat Greek yogurt in a bowl
  • 1/2 scoop of chocolate protein powder
  • Stir

Macros: 22g protein, 6g carbs, 0g fat

Note: It will seem like there is no way in hell that there is enough yogurt for half a scoop of protein, but trust me. Keep stirring, it will mix. It really is kind of amazing the way the protein powder just breaks down into the yogurt. At first it doesn’t seem like it will but then it just vanishes before you know it.

When to Eat Your Wheygurt: Evening Snack

I love using this as an evening snack when I find my macros short on protein. If I have some extra carbs I love to toss about 20-25 grams of granola in the mix.

Easiest Whey Protein Powder Recipe Number 3 – Chocolate Protein Shake (duh?)

Calling a blender a protein powder recipe feels like cheating but so what. It’s one of the easiest ways to turn boring whey powder into a delicious snack.

I recommended a cheap scale above. But for a blender, you want a bit more quality. You’re going to be chopping up hard blocks of ice and you want some longevity from your investment. Plus you can use it for way more than just blending whey protein powder. Get something that is quality, highly rated, but under $100, like this blender.

Frankly, there are about ten thousand ways to mix up your protein shakes with a blender so let me just go over my favorite way. It’s pretty close to a chunky monkey protein shake.

Gold Standard Whey Protein Cookies and Cream

Gold Standard makes the best whey in my opinion. This is their cookies and cream but my favorite is still regular chocolate.

Here’s what you do:

  • Fill your blender about halfway with ice
  • 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
  • 1 banana (100g)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • Blend, enjoy

Macros: 29g protein, 32g carbs, 11g fats

When to Eat Your Chocolate Protein Shake: Post Workout

This is the classic post-workout meal – the protein shake. It’s jam packed with macronutrients and whey is a fast absorbing protein, which is fantastic for muscle recovery.

I’d save this hearty protein shake for a bulking cycle because its heavy helping of fats. Or you could just make one without the peanut butter. Their are a million ways to mix up protein shakes. (Try throwing in some frozen berries, too!)

Devour one of these after your workout and then take a nap. Or go to work. Do whatever you want, but after this shake you’ll do it with a smile.
