MTS Whey

Anyone that follows my blog or YouTube channel knows that I use a lot of protein powder in my recipes! I am a vegetarian and it is sometimes difficult to make sure I have enough protein in my diet.  High protein cookies, muffins, and pancakes are the perfect way for me to meet my protein goals each day.  With all the different protein powder brand out there, you may be wondering what my favorite kind is! 

I have tried a lot of different brands! Some of those include Jay Robb, Abouttime, Dymatize, FitMiss, Muscle Milk, Gold Standard, and Isopure.  They have all been good, but nothing compared to MTS!
In my opinion, MTS Nutrition has the best protein powder.  It tastes great and bakes great too!  Right now they carry five different flavors.  I hear they are coming out with two new ones very soon though! I am super excited about that!

The flavors include Chocolate, Vanilla, Cookies & Cream, Peanut Butter Fluff, and Caramel Sutra.  

The Cookies & Cream is hands down the best tasting protein powder I have ever had!
 Just mixed with water, this shake tastes like liquid Oreos! No joke! 
One scoop has 153 calories 3.5F 6C 25P.

Peanut Butter Fluff would have to be my second favorite.  Also makes a super tasty shake! Anything peanut buttery is always a winner in my book.  
One scoop is 140 calories 2F 4C 25P.  I really love how this protein has a whopping 25 grams of protein per scoop! The main reason I use protein powder is obviously for the protein so the more the merrier!

Caramel Sutra is probably tied for second, but since it is newer, I haven't been able to experiment with it quite as much.  How amazing does caramel protein sound?!
Ya, it tastes amazing too! Not too sweet, but you can defiantly taste the caramel goodness.  One scoop is 150 calories 2F 4C 25P. 

You gotta love the classics.  Chocolate and Vanilla.  
The Chocolate has such a great flavor.  Nice and smooth.  All of the powders dissolve great which is very important to me.  Nobody likes a clumpy lumpy shake! One scoop gives you 150 calories 4F 5C 25P.  I love how all the flavors are very low in fat and carbs.  

One scoop of Vanilla has 150 calories 3.5F 5C 25P.  This might be my favorite flavor to bake with.
  Not too sweet, not artificial tasting at all, and you can mix it with just about anything!! I have used it in sweet and savory dished and they have all been great! 

Make your cupcakes high protein with my Vanilla Cupcake Recipe.
How amazing do those look?!

Want something else sweet? How about some Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies!
This is my all time favorite cookie recipe! Check out the recipe video! These cookies are packed with protein and I love eating the whole batch for breakfast.

I told you that you can also make savory dishes with the Vanilla whey. How about some Corn Fritters!?
Such a great way to sneak some veggies into your diet! I top these off with a little sugar free syrup and a sprinkle of salt.  Love the sweet and salty combination!

Peanut Butter Marshmallow Cookies!  The best part is that these cookies are high protein and good for you! You can have all 8 cookies for only 237 calories 2F 25C 28P! Yup, cookies for breakfast again. 

I love combining two of my favorite things! Quest and MTS!!

I could keep going with the Peanut Butter Fluff, but let's move on to the Chocolate! Since I still have peanut butter on the brain, let's combine some Chocolate whey with some flavored peanut butter and makes some Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
In case you had any doubt, peanut butter and chocolate go together like peas and carrots! Only much better because peanut butter and chocolate are better than veggies... Yup, I got the recipe for you right here!
Lots of different variations with this recipe too! Try all different flavors of peanut butter and protein! Endless possibilities! 

Bored with just drinking that post workout shake? How about some post workout Chocolate Peanut Butter Bark?!
So simple!
1. Mix one scoop Chocolate whey with enough water to make a pudding consistency.
2. Stir in one serving of cereal.
3. Place on parchment and freeze.
4. Eat!!

One of my favorite recipes is made with the Caramel Sutra.
All 6 bars are 345 calories 8F 38C 33P.  I am loving those macros! 

Last but certainly not least, let's make something with my favorite Cookies & Cream!
Yup! More cupcakes! Does it get much better than Cookies & Cream Cupcakes!? No, no it doesn't!

I could go on, and on, and on with all the goodies I have made with these wonderful flavors of protein! You will have to check out my recipe index on my blog and my YouTube channel for more!
To sum it up, MTS Nutrition has the best tasting, mixing, and baking protein powder I have tried so far! 
The macros are great and each flavor comes in a ginormous 5 pound tub! So when you buy some, you know it is going to last for quite some time.  Definitely worth the investment.
