We all know that protein plays a powerful role in your weight loss and fitness journey by helping you retain lean, fat-fighting muscle along the way. But instead of chugging run-of-the-mill protein shakes to amp your intake, I thought of a few sweeter ways to deliver the nutrients using the best protein powder from SCF Nutrition, they are available in Choc Mint/Fudge, Vanilla and Strawberry so there is massive room for versatility.
So here are some recipes that are absolutely awesome!
