Better Together: 5 Easy High Protein Snack Combos
Level up your snacking game by combining Premier Protein ready-to-drink shakes with some tasty companions.
Benefits of High-Protein Snacks
Protein is an incredibly powerful nutrient. It helps you feel fuller because it takes longer to digest. It works with carbs and fats to give you longer-lasting energy. And it helps you build and maintain muscle, which helps us stay healthy and strong at every stage of life.
High-protein snacks are a great way to up your daily protein intake, curb cravings between meals and give you the energy needed to power through your day.
Filling & Easy High-Protein Snack Combos
Our protein shakes are a great option on their own, but we love pairing them with other high-protein snacks to maximize the impact and flavor. Take a look at five of our favorite combinations!
Café Latte Protein Coffee & Avocado Toast
Whether you’re just waking up or need an afternoon pick-me-up, take a break for “brunch” with our Café Latte Protein Shake and avocado toast. Our Café Latte shake has the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee for a smooth boost. This high-protein snack also offers a well-rounded blend of protein, carbs and healthy fats. Grab a slice of whole grain bread and toast, top with ¼ to ½ an avocado, season with salt, pepper and whatever else you’d like!
For a fun twist on avocado toast, check out this Avocado Protein Bagel recipe from Premier Shaker Sarah Holloway featuring an egg and tzatziki.
Chocolate Protein Shake & Peanut Butter Apples
What’s better than chocolate and peanut butter? Nothing. Well, almost. We love pairing our rich Chocolate Protein Shake with peanut butter and apples. Slice up an apple to add healthy fiber and a delicious crunch and top with your favorite peanut butter — creamy or crunchy!
Cinnamon Roll Protein Shake & Two-Ingredient Protein Bagels
This snack combo features baked goods galore! Get the decadent pastry flavor you crave with our Cinnamon Roll Protein Shake, and pair it with an updated twist on a deli favorite. We love Premier Shaker Katie Robledo’s two-ingredient protein bagels. All you need is Greek yogurt and self-rising flour, but some everything bagel seasoning can’t hurt! With this snack combo, you’ll get the comfort and energy you need from carbs, as well as a satisfying serving of protein.
Vanilla Protein Shake & Egg Bites
Sweet and savory are a classic combo, and that’s why we love our creamy Vanilla Protein Shake with DIY egg bites. Like mini frittatas, you can load egg bites up with whatever meat, veggies and fillings you’d like— we recommend bacon, tomato, spinach and cheese. They can be made in a muffin tin and are freezer-friendly — perfect for breakfast-on-the-go or a protein-packed snack whenever you need it. A shake and two egg bites have up to 42 grams of protein!
Caramel Protein Shake & Yogurt Parfait
Think of it as a deconstructed sundae! Take creamy yogurt and top it with fruit, nuts and whatever else you’d like. Then take a big swig of our Caramel Protein Shake for that smooth caramel topping sweetness! And repeat.
