Our Favorite Recipes To Satisfy Your (Semi) Sweet Tooth

By Tone It Up on

If you’re looking for a delicious treat that’s just a lil’ less sweet, we got you! We created our Unsweetened Vanilla and Chocolate Protein Powders with the same creamy, rich taste as the originals, but a little less sweetness so you can sweeten your creations to your liking. They go perfectly in recipes like smoothies, parfaits, and chia seed pudding paired with natural sweeteners like fresh fruit and honey. 

And of course, like all our protein powders, they are plant-based, gluten-free, dairy-free, non-GMO, whey-free, and sugar alcohol-free. 

Here are two of our favorite recipes that will hit that perfect (not too) sweet spot!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Seed Pudding

Makes 1 serving


  • 1 scoop Chocolate Unsweetened Protein Powder
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp. pure maple syrup

  • 1 tsp. peanut or almond butter
  • Sprinkle of chia seeds


  1. Add protein powder, almond milk, and maple syrup to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
  2. In a small container with a tight-fitting lid, add the almond milk mixture and chia seeds. Stir well to combine and store in the fridge with a lid overnight.
  3. When the pudding is thick, add 1/4 cup of it to a small glass or bowl. Add a layer of fresh raspberries and banana, then pour another 1/4 cup of pudding on top. Garnish with the remaining raspberries and banana, nut butter, and a sprinkle of chia seeds.
