Sneak in some protein while satisfying your sweet tooth with this Funfetti Protein Puppy Chow recipe. By swapping the powdered sugar for protein powder, you will be snacking on a treat that tastes like cake, but healthier! Oh, and it’s made in 10 minutes! Isn’t that a piece of cake?
A no-bake snack that tastes like cake, has an extra boost of protein and promotes happy and healthy guts from prebiotic fiber? We are so in! Are you in?
We aren’t sure who the genius is that decided to swap out powdered sugar for protein powder in protein puppy chow recipes, but if we ever meet them IRL we are gonna get down and make ALL the flavors with them because this combo is unreal!
But, what makes this funfetti protein puppy chow recipe really special is the protein powder it’s made with! Yeah, there are a lot of whey protein varieties on the market, but do they all promote healthy guts, provide MCT oils for satiety, energy and brain function, all while still having an incredible, creamy taste? Nope, we didn’t think so.
That’s what makes BiPro Bold Whey Protein Powder different from the other brands on the market. If we are keeping things real (like we always do) we always go for what tastes the best first, and this protein powder does NOT disappoint! It also mixes really well (hello, no lumpy protein drinks), is great for pre and post workout fuel and is a great plant-based protein option. We all know how hard getting in adequate protein can be as a veggie lover, right? Well, no more friends!
After the taste, we always (ALWAYS) look to the ingredients list. Things we look for:
- only natural sweeteners and flavors (CHECK)
- Gluten-free (CHECK)
- Lactose-free (CHECK)
- No hormones (CHECK)
- No added sugars (CHECK)
It’s just 23 grams of pure delicious, lean, clean, protein! Think milkshake, but with protein! The flavor makes it the perfect coating for this sweet funfetti protein puppy chow treat!
Throw some in a snack bag and enjoy it on your commute to or from work. Or, sweeten up the end of your day with this better for you recipe as a dessert. No matter how you serve it, we guarantee you will be adding this one to your weekly meal prep snack routine. A piece of cake, don’t you think?
Funfetti Protein Puppy Chow Ingredients:

The divide it up between your meal prep containers, add some fruit on the side if you’re feeling like a little something ‘extra’ and you’re set to go!
In less than 10 minutes you have yourself a sweet, protein fortified snack that not only tastes delicious but is fortified with all of those “oh-so-good” for you health benefits from the BiPro whey protein powder.
