New Yummy Protein Powder For Your Pancakes!

by Sarah on December 19, 2011 · 15 comments

One of the most frequently asked questions I get is what kind of protein powder I use. I have a few requirements of my protein powders but other than that, I am always game for trying a new brand and/or flavor. I’ve uploaded videos in past citing my requirements. Recently, I reviewed the Vanilla and Pina Colada on my YouTube channel from the Jay Robb line of products.

I have been eying this brand ever since I tried a delicious sample at Expo East a couple of years ago. It’s sweetened with stevia, does not contain protein from cows treated with rGBH, and uses whey protein isolate. It also has only 110 calories with 25 g coming from protein and only one from carbohydrates. I was not disappointed when I used the vanilla to make my protein pancake. The Pina Colada tasted a little funky with the pancake but as a smoothie it was sweet and flavorful. The infamous stevia aftertaste went unnoticed.

how come?

I have already liked your fan page! I enjoyed personally hearing about your training for the Urbanathon. Video wise, I enjoyed your outdoor playground workout. We have something like that and it’s great to use for boot camps and my own workouts.

I can totally relate to True Confession of a Girl who likes Booze & Sugar. This was my favorite post this past summer. I love really your blog as I am originally from Boston too! Keep up the great work.

Hey Sarah I am a TUI member but I entered because (if I win) I would like to give the membership to a friend as a present! Is it possible? If not, it doesn’t matter, I still enjoyed posting on your wall:)

yes of course! I’m glad you mentioned it though because if you win, I would have been like, didn’t she just buy it :) … haha. How are you liking it so far!? Did you get your shirt yet?

I did get it! So cute! Got it over the weekend but I was in Colorado so I unpacked it yesterday! I have mostly studied the TIU plan for now because I have seriously ZERO time to even buy groceries these days! But I started with the Meta D and the booty calls a few times a week. Definitely incorporating the snack ideas too. Also did a few workouts and they were really good! So excited to start 100% in January, I feel it will be good since I will have read the whole thing and will know exactly what to do!

Hey Sarah,

I was wondering when you have your protein shakes: in the morning, afternoon, or night? Do you drink them as a snack or replace a meal with them? Also, how do you make them? I’ve never used protein powder before, and I’m curious about it.

Hi Sarah,
The colors don’t bother me but that music is terrible! In some parts I find it hard to hear what you’re saying because it sounds like you’re on your way to a hoe down. I think you should keep your videos simple as you have alot of great advice and the added music/background is just distracting.

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for posting the information regarding Jay Robb’s whey protein. I just purchased some and have a feeling this will now be a staple for my protein supplement.

I am wondering if you have ever tried freezing the pancakes from your protein pancake recipe? I am thinking it would be helpful if I made a few at time and stored in the freezer for easy access in the moring during the work week.

Any thoughts?

Thanks :)

I have made them into muffins before and kept in the fridge for a week but have not tried freezing them. Let me know how it goes if you try. Here is the muffin recipe if you are interested –

Hi Sara,

Just an update: Last Sunday I made up 4 protein pancakes and froze them. I would take them out when I got up and by the time I got to work they would be thawed. I don’t mind eating them at room temp. They weren’t hard or tasted funny from being in the freezer.

Thanks again!


13 Sarah January 9, 2012 at 3:03 pm

Oh fabulous! Thank you Andrea. Good to know. I will pass this info along :)

So I’m kinda late on this but since I am finally back in the US and jet lag is a thing of the past I am getting my lazy bum off the couch and starting the TIU plan! Of course I needed some protein powder so I decided to give the Jay Robb a try. Found it on for a reasonable price (I think). I wanted the Vanilla but they were out so I went with the Chocolate. Will let you know how I like it!
