One important measure of a great protein powder is its versatility.
While shakes are often the staple of a high-protein diet, consuming them day in and day out can be boring and unsatisfying, which is why the versatility of a "clean" tasting vanilla or chocolate protein powder is a great advantage.
Try your favorite protein powder in these delicious, dessert-worthy recipes for a little variety this summer.
(NOTE: We at Emergent also happen to believe that the more you can achieve with the fewest ingredients, the better... These recipes have been selected not only for their appeal as high-protein dessert, but also because they're elegantly simple.)
