How To Make Unflavored Protein Powder Taste Better

Some people love the taste of unflavored protein powder. Some claim that it tastes creamy or “dairy like”. However some people simply admit that it doesn’t even taste like anything. This can make having your daily protein shake nowhere near as inspiring or fun, and at the end of the day, you want to make eating and drinking fun.

There are thousands of ways to make protein powder taste better, but for now, let’s just stick to some of the easiest, fastest and most effective ways.

Protein Shakes

Shakes are the most common way to get your protein for one reason – they work best. Protein shakes “pre-digest” the protein so that it is easier for your body to absorb, especially if you whip it up in a powerful blender. Shakes are also super quick and easy to make. You just throw in the protein powder with a bit of milk and whatever else you can find in your cupboards. If you have some fruits, nuts, spices, dark chocolate, spinach (seriously, try it!), juice, yogurt or other tasty items, throw them in as well. Shakes are a seriously easy and effective way to get your protein.

Throwing some ice into the mix will also give you a drink 10x healthier and more tasty than any shop around town will sell you!


Making your desserts healthy so they actually help you on your way to your goal makes them far less guilty. Here are some ingredients that go together perfectly with unflavored protein powder that can help you lose weight and build your muscles at the same time.

  • Bananas
  • Apples
  • Yogurt
  • Cinnamon
  • Cocoa
  • Oats
  • Dark chocolate
  • Rice flour with eggs and baked
  • Eggs
  • Omlette
  • Peanut butter

Mixing protein powder in with these ingredients and heating or cooling at different temperatures can give you some delicious recipes. I have found the best thing to do is just to hunt through your cupboards and throw together some of the above ingredients at random and heat or cool them and see what happens. At the very worst, you will get a cookie dough like mixture, which is a great topping for an actual dessert if you decide to follow a recipe!

Add Your Own Flavor

Some people prefer to buy unflavored protein powder just because it is natural, and cheaper. Then you can add a flavor of your own such as cocoa, cinnamon or other sweet spices. It is always best to try this on a small part of your tub first so you don’t ruin it if you don’t like the flavor. You can also buy natural fruit powders such as blueberry, banana and strawberry from retailers.

Baking and Cooking With Unflavored Protein Powder

This is an easy way to make unhealthy recipes more healthy. Instead of adding a whole lot of sugar and flour to a recipe, try this instead. Add rice or almond flour instead of a normal white flour. Instead of the sugar, add your protein powder and some natural flavor such as nuts or a fruit of your choice.

There are so many ways to enjoy your protein powder without having to buy flavored powder that is full of many addictive and artificial flavors, colors and additives.

Even if you just buy a tub of unflavored powder and then add some cocoa to it – you are far better off than buying flavored powder!
