Recipe: DIY Protein Powder

The most common question that bothers everybody- how do you meet my daily protein requirement? The simple answer to this is- PLAN your meals! Need something simpler? Try this DIY protein powder.

This DIY protein powder would make the perfect protein-me-up sprinkle for most things that you eat on a daily basis- smoothies, oatmeal, salads, etc. without affecting the taste. I love adding it to my  Overnight Oatmeal Mugs and High Protein Smoothie.

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.

Whether you are trying to tone your body or simply trying to meet your daily protein requirement, this DIY powder will help you reach closer to your goal. And all you need is 3 simple ingredients, which you can easily find in your kitchen-

Instant dry milk: 1/2 cup serving has a whopping 10 grams of protein, including whey protein and 8 essential nutrients.
Chia seeds: 2 tbsps ground chia seeds have 5g protein
Flax seeds: 2 tbsps ground flax seeds have 4g protein

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Throw in 1 cup dry milk, 4 tbsps flax seeds and 4 tbsps chia seeds in a blender and pulse until smooth.
  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.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?
