If you eat a real food diet heavy in plants, there's not any huge need to use protein powders in my opinion, as you will be getting enough protein from whole foods.
However, in today's busy world where optimal nutrition is often lacking and when our little eaters are fussy and refuse our best attempts at helping them to eat nourishing food, a protein-packed smoothie, a protein muffin or pancake is an amazing choice (and far better than a scone and a caramel macchiato from your local cafe!)
I'm often asked what protein powder I recommend. I love NuZest Clean Lean protein power. It's a plant-based powder made from golden pea protein and it's free from gluten, dairy, soy and GMO's. All natural, 100% vegetable and allergen free, it's easy to digest and absorb (very important) and tastes great (vitally important!).
I whipped up these protein-packed bites using NuZest Chocolate Clean Lean protein powder, but you can use any kind of protein powder you like.
As you can see, my chocolate coating skills leave a lot to be desired, and I've since had recommended to insert a toothpick and roll the bite in the chocolate to get an even coverage all around. Try that and let me know how you go.
