I am 24 and i have decided to start working

out to look good. I have read about protien drinks on your site, but when I enquired the rates it comes to be very

expensive for me. I am very much interested in building my body and I am very inspired by your site. I cannot afford to

buy both the supplements ie. Creatine monohydrate and whey protein which is very necessary for building the body. I

would be very greatful if you could give me the receipe on how to make protein drink at home. Would this home

made receipe be effective?. Please reply back soon so that I do not delay in starting my new workout

schedule.Looking for your speedy reply. Thanks a ton and keep up the good work.

Congratulations on you decision to start working out and eating healthy. As for protein and creatine they are not
necessary, but they do help with building lean muscle. I don’t have a protein recipe other then eating lots of high
protein foods such as beef, chicken, turkey, fish, eggs, milk, cheese, etc. Protein powders are made in labs where they
separate the protein isolate from protein foods. They aren’t something that you can cook up at home.

Protein powders are good because they are convenient and easily digested by the body. This is important after a
workout because you need to get easily digested protein in your body after working out. And when you calculate the
price, gram for gram protein powders are actually cheaper then buying protein foods (i.e. meat, poultry, fish, etc.). For
example, to get 30 grams of protein from canned tuna fish this would cost about $1.00 To get 30 grams of protein
from whey protein powder it costs $0.49 (Optimum Nutrition 5 lb. Whey Protein for $26.79 at:
http://totfit.safeshopper.com/6/15.htm).

The same thing goes for Meal Replacement Powders, with these you can have a very nutritious high protein meal for
only $1.59 (Champion Nutrition Ultramet – 20 packets for $31.85 at: http://totfit.safeshopper.com/10/49.htm). If
you went to McDonald’s or the cafeteria at school or work you wouldn’t get much of a meal for $1.59.

When you include your protein supplements in your grocery budget you’ll notice that it works out to about the same
price or cheaper then regular food. Like I mentioned before, supplements such as creatine are not vital to muscle
growth. So if you can’t afford it, don’t buy it. But protein is the main building block in muscle growth so it only
makes sense to have a diet that is high in protein.

Here’s the dietitian’s recipe for simple homemade protein powder – using a surprise budget-friendly protein source and a natural thickener.

Only 3 ingredients, you probably have on hand: HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE PROTEIN POWDER

This recipe was originally published in 2014 – and has become our most popular recipe.

So, over the years, dozens of friends have told me this homemade protein powder is a favorite for their kids and even for sick relatives. Here’s how it all began…

My sister wanted a grab-and-go breakfast for herself and her teenager; she thought a fruit smoothie with a scoop of protein powder would combine all the components of a balanced breakfast. But…she wanted a more affordable option than most store-bought varieties – and she doesn’t care for the artificial sweeteners in lots of the powders.

Here’s the recipe she texted me for my dietitian approval: “dry oats + brown rice + raw lentils: grind to powder”

Yikes. I texted back “breakfast #bellyache” as raw lentils are indigestible. In fact one of the reasons you cook them is to destroy some of the anti-nutritional factors that makes them inedible when raw.

So, instead, here’s the wholesome recipe I came up with using an under-utilized, convenient and super-nutritious item in the supermarket: instant nonfat dry milk – it’s actually just milk with the water removed – thus powdered milk. So, just like a glass of liquid milk, it contains whey. And according to a growing group of researchers, high-quality protein like dairy (whey) and eggs yield the best results in terms of muscle growth, muscle recovery, and may be beneficial for weight loss.

Each 1/2 cup-scoop of my Homemade Protein Powder has 140 calories and 10 grams of protein. To make it I combined:

Dry milk powder: A 1/3 cup serving has just 80 calories, a whopping 8 grams of protein, including whey protein, AND 8 essential nutrients.
Dry oats: A natural thickener because oats ‘plump’ in liquid. All oats are a healthy whole grain with significant amounts of fiber. Plus some researchers have show oatmeal has a special type of fiber that helps you feel fuller longer.
Almonds: Contains fiber and heart-healthy fats.

Combine my Homemade Protein Powder (recipe below) in the following quick recipes for a protein-packed grab-and-go-breakfast that will do your body good plus keep you going all morning. These are also some of this dietitian’s favorite ways to refuel after a workout. Use a 1/2-cup scoop (46.2 gm) of Homemade Protein Powder:

Berry Berry Smoothie: 1 scoop Homemade Protein Power + 1/2 cup plain (or flavored) Greek yogurt + 1 cup milk + 1 cup berries = 31 g protein
Extra Creamy Chocolate Smoothie: 1 scoop Homemade Protein Power + 1 cup milk + 1/4 avocado +1 tablespoon cocoa powder = 18 g protein
Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie: 1 scoop Homemade Protein Power + 1 cup milk + 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice + 1/4 cup canned sweet potatoes = 17 g protein
