Power-up protein recipes

Primal Pink Protein recipes

Cooking with everyone’s favourite protein, whey, just became even more convenient!

We all love whey for its versatility – it’s great for super smoothies and better-for-you baked treats – but using the flavoured options meant you had to buy multiple products to match the flavour profile of your recipe.

With Primal Pink’s new unflavoured and unsweetened Naked Whey product you can give any recipe a protein boost without the hassle of matching flavours. And you’ll also get an additional health benefit because Primal Pink Naked Whey contains added prebiotics and digestive enzymes.

Like all Primal Pink products, Naked Whey has been scientifically-formulated and designed specifically for women, and is also lab tested by SANAS-accredited laboratories to ensure the highest standard and that every tub lives up to the Primal quality guarantee.
