Here’s the dietitian’s recipe for simple homemade protein powder – using a surprise budget-friendly ingredient.
Yield:10 servings 1x
3 cups (240 gm) instant nonfat dry milk, divided
1 cup (80 gm) old fashioned or instant dry oats
1 cup (142 gm) almonds
Sweetener of your choice
Place 1 cup instant dry milk, 1 cup oats, 1 cup almonds in blender. Pulse until smooth.
Place remaining instant dry milk in blender and pulse just a few times until blended.
Place in container and cover tightly. Keep at a cool room temperature if you use within 2 weeks – if storing longer store in the refrigerator so the nuts don’t go rancid.
To use, scoop 1/2 cup into 1/2-1 cup liquid in a blender; if possible let set 5-10 minutes for oats to plump. Add additional fruits, flavorings, yogurt or milks of your choice. Vanilla or almond extract is especially delicious.
