How To Make Your Own Protein Powder (For The Health & Budget Conscious!)

Why Should You Make Your Own Protein Powder?
dietary-supplement-protein-powder

Every wondered how to make your own protein powder? In this post you’ll find the 2 big reasons why I recommend making your own protein powder along with easy to make protein powder recipes.
Add this powder to your proats, your weight gainer or simply use it in place of a whey protein shake – it’s extremely versatile and can be altered to fit your needs.

You’ll Save Money

Whey protein is expensive.
There’s some cheap brands out there but the quality of ingredients and authenticity of claimed macronutrients is often shady – making your own protein powder at home is far cheaper – whether you decide to consistently make your own protein powder at home or merely use it when you’re waiting for your next batch of whey protein to arrive, you can’t really go wrong.

You’re In Complete Control

Artificial colours, flavours, proprietary matrixes that permit supplement companies the right to not have to disclose the exact dosages and details of ingredients in their protein powder… there’s a ton of dodgy and questionable techniques out there used to primarily elude the customer and put more money in the supplement giant’s pockets…

Like I said, this often comes at the cost of poor quality ingredients.

When you’re making your own protein powder you’re in complete control. There’s no question as to what’s in it because you’re deciding and you’re making it. 100% transparent.

How To Make Your Own Protein Powder

There’s no need to bake or cook any ingredients in order to make your own protein powder, as long as you’ve got a blender or food processor you’re good to go! Give the protein powder recipes below a try! Remember, quantities can easily be altered based on your preference or caloric goal.

    I’m SJ. I’m a fitness enthusiast and published author. I transformed my body from a skinny fat 135lbs with 18% body fat to a solid 192lbs at 8% body fat. I became qualified in a field I was passionate about. I founded several online businesses that allow me to pursue ideas and projects in my life that I am passionate about without having to constantly worry about money. I published several eBooks explaining the training and dieting techniques I used to achieve the body I have today. I learnt a plethora of new information on dieting and fitness by reading and applying what I read, to find out what does work and what doesn’t work, because as I’m sure you’ve noticed the health and fitness industry is full of non-sense claims and BS. I found out what was true and what worked for me and applied that knowledge. And you bet I had fun during the whole process.
