HOMEMADE PROTEIN POWDER
Have you ever wanted to mix up your own ingredients for your own Organic Protein Powder? Well, me, too……so I decided to create a recipe for Fresh Homemade Organic Protein Powder.
I have always wondered how those prepackaged protein mixes and powders could be fresh. We all know real foods can lose their nutritional value over time. I just knew there had to be a better way to enjoy the super food value of protein shakes and smoothies. So, I came up with a recipe for Fresh Homemade Protein Powder.
After doing a bit of research, I could not find what I wanted in a homemade organic protein powder that I could grind fresh each time. So, I created a few recipes for my use and then thought about sharing them with others.
My first recipe has almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, flax, chia, and hemp seeds
plus organic powdered milk!
I think the mixture in this photo is so inviting and healthy looking……keep reading for the specific amounts of each ingredient……
Here is the Recipe for Fresh Homemade Protein Mix:
~Two cups of Organic Milk Powder Certified Organic Whole Milk Powder (1lb)
~One cup of whole Almonds
~1/2 Hemp Seed
~1/2 cup Flax Seed
~1/2 cup Sunflower Seeds
~1/2 cup Pumpkin Seeds
~1/2 cup Chia Seeds
~1/2 cup Sesame Seeds
Combine the above ingredients in a bowl. Mix thoroughly and place in a Ball Jar. Store in the refrigerator until needed. To use:
First, take about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of your Organic Protein Mix and grind it in your Vitamix
Next, add one cup of fresh water and 1/2 of fresh or frozen organic fruit, frozen berries or veggies or anything else (Frozen Kale) that you would like.
Now, whiz your protein powder in your Vita Mix and enjoy!! If you are using fresh fruit, feel free to add 3 to 4 ice cubes before blending.
