How to Make your Own Protein Powder

A quick look at the supermarket shelves in the dietary supplements aisle can leave you feeling confused- even possibly overwhelmed with the number of choices you have. If you’re out to buy some protein powder, you don’t just have to make a decision about which one to choose from the near hundreds of options available, but also shell out a good amount for the same. Why not make your own protein powder instead that’s not just super easy to make but also helps you save up that extra cash?

Dried Oats

Dried oats are a great choice to use as a protein powder! They act as a natural thickener. And since they are whole grains, they also pack in a lot of fiber, which is great for your digestive system. In fact, researchers have found that oats can help you feel full for a longer time!

Dry Milk Powder

Dry milk powder is another great option you could pick. You could mix it with others on this list too! Just ⅓ cup of milk powder could give you 8 g of protein and a ton of other nutrients for just 80 calories!

Chickpeas

Dried Chickpeas

Dried chickpeas and even split peas can work wonderfully as an option. All you need to do is add them to your blender or coffee grinder and grind them well, and you’re pretty much sorted!

One thing to remember when you’re using beans as a protein powder is to always used cooked and dried beans. Uncooked beans tend to contain a toxin, which when consumed, can leave you feeling sick.

Dried Egg Powder

Looking to add some extra nutritional punch to your protein powder? Add some dried egg powder into it and take it up a notch. You can easily find this one at a local health store!

It is always a good idea to make your own protein powder in modest batches, since some of the ingredients may decay if they are not stored properly. Also consider leaving it unflavoured for the most part, so that you can add it to your soups and gravies too to thicken them and give them a healthier twist. Once you are done whipping up your batch, transfer it to an air-tight container and store it in the refrigerator.
