6 Protein Packed Desserts

6 Protein Packed Desserts - BlenderBottle

It's a well-known fact that consuming protein after a good workout is essential to the body's recovery process. For many, it comes in the form of protein shakes, but today it's coming in the form of dessert. Yes, I said it dessert. What may seem like over-indulgent cheat treats are some of our favorite, nutritious alternatives to traditional protein shake recipes.

1. Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

Packed with 8g of protein and 2g of fiber (per serving) peanut butter will help your muscles heal and your stomach stay full longer. This healthy indulgence will help fight unhealthy cravings, and will taste good while doing it.

2. Protein Cheesecake

We know, it sounds to good to be true but hold on to your hats because this recipe is not only delicious, but riddled with protein and calcium.

3. Coconut Protein Popsicle

Need to cool down after your work out? What better way, than with a protein popsicle? This recipe is as easy as they come, and one the whole family will love.

4. Chocolate Protein Sandwiches

These cookies mimic fan-favorite Oreo cookie surprisingly well. Grab a glass of milk and get to dipping.

5. Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Bread

Each slice of this decadent bread is full of protein, healthy fats, and potassium. Your taste buds, and healing muscles will thank you for a slice, or two, ... or three.

6. Protein Lover's Brownie

Everybody loves a good brownie and this protein-filled option does not disappoint. It's the perfect fix for any chocolate craving, and a recipe you're won't soon forget.
