So I’ve been thinking about buying protein powder again for breakfast shakes. I’ve tried some in the past that tasted freakin’ fantastic. Almost like drinking a milkshake. While others were just hell-no-I’m-never-trying-that-again. My search for the next best thing led me to the wonderful world of Amazon. After venturing into the world of Prime for less than a minute, filtering through endless list of options, I couldn’t find the strength to pick my bottom lip up from off the floor. Maybe I’ve been out of the protein powder loop for a while, but is it me or have these manufacturers lost their minds? They want 60 bucks for a jar of powder?
I quickly opened up another tab and began to search for DIY protein powders and after reading through several recipes, I wanted to kick myself. Why didn’t I think to do this before? These recipes include all natural ingredients that are simple and inexpensive. I’m pretty resourceful. I have plenty of protein options in my kitchen already: hemp seeds, garbanzo beans, lentils, almonds, walnuts….and the list goes on. Now I know my makeshift powder won’t taste anything like the fingerlickin’ goodness I’ve tried in the past…
Or will it?
1/3 cup hemp seeds
1/3 cup oats
1/8 cup lentils
Want to know how it turned out? Stay tuned to find out…
