8 High Protein Recipes Perfect for Your Workout

These 8 high protein recipes using Rockin’ Refuel protein milk are perfect for your post or pre-workout meal. From overnight oats to ice pops and more!

If you follow along on Facebook or Instagram, you’ve probably seen a few recipes over the last 9 months using Rockin’ Refuel.

I’ve been working with them to come up with all sorts of high protein snacks and meals perfect for pre or post workout.

Their vanilla and chocolate protein milks are great straight up when you’re looking for a protein-packed option but, baking and cooking with them is also fun to create some high protein recipes when you want to actually eat your calories!

Check out the high protein recipes below and the link where you can grab each full recipe.

High protein vanilla pancakes with raspberry compote made with Rockin' Refuel protein milk are a great meal to get in before or after your morning workout.


When I can actually pull myself out of bed for a morning workout, a fluffy stack of these afterwards is pretty much all that gets me through.

Make this protein packed vanilla mug cake when you're craving dessert but don't want to go completely off-diet!


Mug cakes may just be the best (and most dangerous) invention in the land. A dessert that can be made in less than 5 minutes in your microwave? Yes, please.

Whip up this strawberry vanilla smoothie packed with Rockin' Refuel protein milk for an easy post workout snack that tastes like dessert!


Kinda like the 112 song but sub strawberries. Where’s all my late 90s hip-hop fans?

Overnight oats are the perfect breakfast for those on the go. This version is protein packed to help keep you full longer!


Overnight oats are magical. No need to cook, just mix things up the night before and boom – breakfast is ready when you wake up.

Calling all chocolate lovers! These double chocolate high-protein mini muffins are the kind of snack you want to carry around at all times!


Is it weird to keep muffins in your purse? Because I’m not above it when it comes to these chocolaty concoctions.

Waffle bites packed with protein, lemon flavor and blueberries can either be enjoyed for breakfast or eaten as a snack, they're delicious either way.


Things are cuter in bite-size form right? Make a Belgian waffle, break it into quarters and you’ve got yourself some waffle bites. This way they can be breakfast or a snack.

Chia pudding is the perfect healthy dessert option. Rockin' Refuel chocolate protein milk is the perfect high-protein base for making this chocolate almond version.


Cha-cha-cha-chia! Chia pudding is like the healthy version of tapioca. When you make it with chocolate milk, it’s hard to believe it’s actually good for you!

If you're craving an icy treat, try making ice pops with both vanilla and chocolate varieties of Rockin' Refuel!


I know summer’s over but save these icy treats for next year when that workout leaves you sweating buckets, no better way to refuel!

I could not find that protein milk, decided to go with a chocolate-almond milk from Silk but I think it's not as thick as the drink you used, so the final texture was a bit loose

still, the taste was great. Wish I could find that drink, but maybe I should reduce the amount of Silk almond milk and increase a bit the chia, that should do the trick

thank you!

Too bad you couldn't find it! I love Silk almond milks but they definitely don't have the protein content of the Rockin' Refuel. Not sure where you shop but I can pretty consistently find it in ShopRite and convenience stores around me. Glad it tasted good though!

I rely heavily on protein powders/drinks for post-workout because it's the fastest way I can refuel my muscles. While I normally just make a protein shake, I'd LOVE to try your recipes using this protein drink! I'm eye'ing those vanilla pancakes!
