Constant high carb and high sugar food cravings, thinning hair, joint pain, low energy, moodiness, etc. are some symptoms of protein deficiency. Other than this, if you are spending time in the gym and still not seeing any changes, it could be due to insufficient protein intake.

  2. Put this in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.
  3. I also add a little bit of cocoa powder (I love it for its great antioxidant properties). You can also add cinnamon to it.
Recipe Notes
  • This mixture can be stored up to 2 weeks. You can double the quanities in case you plan to use more.
  • If you are lactose intolerant, you can replace dry milk with oats. 1 cup of oats has 10g of protein. Simply pulse the oats with flax and chia seeds and store. Powdered oats can also be an addition to the above DIY protein powder recipe. They lend a super-thick texture to smoothies, etc. and up the protein content as well.
  • Dried milk has all the nutrients of milk minus vitamin C, thiamin and vitamin B12.
  • Dried milk is 80 percent casein and 20 percent whey!
  • Regular dry milk can be replaced with Soy Milk Powder as well.
  • You can try these protein powder recipes that are not shakes- I personally love the Tiramisu pancakes.
