2 Ingredient Homemade Protein Powder Recipe

Are you a fan of protein powder?

Let me ask you a question…

Have you ever had a look at the ingredients list on the back of the packet?

Most of the time this ingredient list is pretty long and quite disturbing as it will more than likely contain a cocktail of chemicals, some allergy producing whey powder or hidden MSGs which hide under the misleading name of ‘natural flavourings’ or even ‘natural vanilla flavour’.  

Yes you heard that right, the very thing that is labeled as natural is created in a lab and has been proven to cause disease in the body.

Watch my video about natural flavours here.

And now that you know why we shouldn’t be eating yucky processed protein powder, let’s turn our attention to protein shall we?

It actually turns out that needing so much protein is actually a myth, invented by the creators of these protein powders so they could pitch us their toxic products at a premium price!

If you’d like to know exactly how much protein we actually need, click here.

So now we’ve established that:

  1. We don’t need protein powders as they are actually harmful and not helpful and
  2. We don’t actually need as much protein as we think we do

And before you ask, yes we do still NEED protein.  

But if you eat a diet based on whole foods, you don’t have to worry about protein at all as it’s in pretty much all whole foods.

Most westerners actually get far too much protein from all the animal products they consume.

We put far too much emphasis on protein.

So if we don’t need to worry about it, what is the point of making a homemade protein powder?

For 2 reasons:

  1. Old habits die hard.  It is hard for most people to simply stop putting protein powder in their smoothies.  So replacing the toxic powder with a homemade powder will transition you nicely into eating a pure wholefoods diet.
  2. Add some nuts or seeds which are high in plant based protein will fill you up until your next meal, make your smoothie thick and creamy and provide you with additional unique health benefits.

That’s the reason why I add plant based protein sources to my Green Thickies as they are a complete meal, and nuts and seeds provide healthy fats, healthy protein and many other vitamins and minerals which are necessary for good health.

Once you switch to this homemade protein powder, you’re going to feel so much better, and watch as allergies melt away, not to mention your waistband shrinking!
