At Nutracelle, we believe that restricting yourself is not the answer when you want to reach your health goals. Instead of omitting your favorite sweet treats out of your diet, create healthier alternatives. Here are some healthy desserts to try with the help of Nutracelle’sNutralean andNutraVegan protein powder!
Nut-Free Homemade Protein Bars
News flash: the perfect packaged protein bar doesn’t exist. Most protein bars you find at the grocery store are highly processed, filled with artificial flavors, and packed with sugar. Why settle for packaged protein bars when you can easily create your own at a more affordable price? Combine your two cups of your favorite oats, ⅓ cup ofNutralean orNutraVegan protein powder, ¼ cup flaxseed meal, ¼ cup of a flour of your choice, one teaspoon baking powder, ½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, ¼ cup honey, and dark chocolate chips. Then, roll into bar shapes, and put in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees fahrenheit. Simple, easy, and delicious!
Protein Mug Cake
When that late night cake craving kicks in, try a protein mug cake! Creating your own cake in the microwave creates a soft and gooey texture, and tastes like a lava cake from your favorite restaurant. Try them with different fresh fruits or dark chocolate! The recipe is simple: Grab a large mug and mix together ¼ cupNutralean protein powder, one teaspoon baking powder, 10 grams of coconut flour, one teaspoon of almond or vanilla extract, one tablespoon of stevia, and two teaspoons of coconut oil with half a mushed up banana. Throw in the microwave for one minute and you’ve got yourself a warm, delicious mug cake!

If you’re obsessed with marshmallow fluff, this protein packed recipe is for you! It’s a refreshing sweet treat to enjoy post workout or hike. To make a single serving of ‘fluff’, use ¼ a bag of frozen fruit, ½ cup ofNutralean protein, and a tiny splash of milk. When blending together, keep an eye on the texture to ensure you get that perfect fluffy consistency. Make sure to eat it right away too, or else it will turn into a smoothie. Top with more fruit, or some granola for some healthy whole grains and fats.
