What is the easiest way to consume protein powder?

The easiest way to eat protein powder is in a protein shake. (Simply mix 1 scoop with 8oz of water or milk.) If you've been simply making a protein shake after your workout and it works for you, you're in luck. That's the quickest and simplest way to get your protein, and if you don't mind it, great! But some of us struggle with the taste, the texture of the powder, or the consistency. So, here are 3 alternative ways to incorporate your protein powder. They're so easy that you can’t ignore trying them out. 

Let's dive in!

1. Add it to yogurt

By mixing the right combination, you can get up to 45g of protein in your simple yogurt bowl! Just imagine, in the morning, you've already met half or one-third of your protein intake goal, depending on your target. It's simple yet delicious. You can use unflavored CLEAN Whey Protein powder for this.

2. Add it to pancake batter

Sneaking protein powder into a patch of pancakes is a great way to increase your protein intake, as well as inject some extra flavor into your flapjacks.

3. Protein-packed oatmeal

While oatmeal is a great real-food option, it’s best to pair it with a source of protein to keep blood sugar (and therefore energy levels) more even. Plus, while most flavored oatmeal packets are convenient, they are usually packed with sneaky added sugars.

Stick with plain oatmeal and let the natural sweetness and flavor of your protein powder do the work.

* Keep it simple by cooking plain oats with water or milk of choice. Then stir in a scoop or two of protein powder. Sprinkle with cinnamon and top with berries, chopped nuts, or some nut butter if desired.
