Trutein Protein Powder

I’m pretty picky with my protein powders, and I’m always afraid to buy a huge tub because of that. I came across Trutein on bodybuilding.com and saw that they not only had samples on the Body Nutrition, they had amazing flavors! Body Nutrition is the company that makes Trutein, alond with many other types of protein powders. I was super excited and ended up buying 7 sample packets (Not all for myself. But mostly for myself.) 😳

Banana Cream:

I was amazed how much this actually tasted like banana. I was expecting an artificial banana laffy-taffy type taste, which I would have also loved, but was super happy that it tasted like real banana.

I only used half of these packets (equivalent to half a scoop) each time so that I could make multiple things with each of them. My first banana cream creation was a delicious smoothie, and the second was a banana cream “cheesecake” on an English muffin

I just mixed the other half of the packet with 2 Tbsp cream cheese and 2 Tbsp Kefir (or yogurt) and a splash  of water

CinnaBun:

CinnaBun was also absolutely delicious. It tasted like a snickerdoodle 😛

I made a Microwave Protein Cake with half of the packet, recipe is from MarMarsHappiness blog!

And I made cinnamon bun oatmeal with the other half

This was so amazing, I loved it so much

It was 1/2 cup of oats, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 scoop protein powder, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1 Tbsp cream cheese

Birthday Cake:

This was my absolute favorite. I ended up buying a full tub because I loved it so much

Half of the packet was used in another MarMar’s Happiness Protein Cake. It tasted exactly like a funfetti cake

The other half was used for this little bunny on Easter

The spread is half a packet of trutein bday cake, a little pb fit, and a splash of water

After buying the tub, I’ve made some more creations with this lovely flavor

trutein 3 pancakes 1

LIKE THIS AMAZING STACK OF PROTEIN PANCAKES. Just look at those. I think they speak for themselves. I will post the recipe to the pancakes soon! The “frosting”is half a scoop of trutein bday cake and a splash of water

Expect to see some more creations, soon. *cough cough cake batter protein cookies cough cough*

S’mores:

trutein 4 pancakes 2

After making those delicious pancakes, I knew what I would be using the S’mores packet for. Another amazing stack of pancakes of course!!!! It was a little hard to taste the s’mores flavor in the pancakes which I’m pretty upset about. I topped this lovely stack with a protein sticky “marshmallow” sauce- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder, splash water, 1 Tbsp honey- just mix and freeze until sticky!!

Vanilla:

I am really not a fan of vanilla protein powder, so I was surprised that I actually kind of liked this one! I find they always taste artificial or too sweet or even coconutty sometimes. Is that weird??

I used the packet for a protein shake, since I thought it would be the best way to actually taste the vanilla

It was a little too strong of a taste, so I wish I had mixed it with more water. Other than that I was pretty happy with this one, too

Power Pudding:

This stuff is incredible. But I’m sure you’re not surprised considiering I’ve had nothing but amazing things to say about each of the ones I’ve tried. It’s exactly like instant pudding. You just mix it with water and it turns thick instead of milky like a protein shake. It has a bit of an artificial sweetness to it, so I mixed it with a Tbsp of cream cheese, which cut a lot of the sweetness

I used the other half as just regular protein pudding, since I loved it so much and didn’t want to mask the taste

trutein 2

They now have a peanut butter marshmallow cookie flavor, so I’m sure I’ll be ordering some more samples soon! Chocolate mint sounds awesome too, and so does lemon meringue pie… Sorry wallet 😳
