The Best Ways to Mix Protein Powder

You got picky with your protein and found your favorite Orgain protein powder flavor, now what? Protein powder is pretty handy because it can be added to all sorts of tasty recipes. Getting enough protein is vital in helping your body produce healthy tissue, hair, skin, and nails, as well as repairing muscles, regulating blood sugar and cravings, and even promoting weight loss. It’s also nice to have a few different ways to get your protein for the sake of variety. Mix things up with our tips for the simplest ways to incorporate protein into your life.

  1. Shake it up: Try adding a couple scoops to a shaker bottle along with chilled water, coconut water, milk, or plant-based milk. Secure the lid and then give it a vigorous shake for a healthy, satisfying post-workout drink or a meal replacement for healthy weight loss or during a hectic day.

  2. Blend: Combining your protein powder with a banana, a handful of ice, and a generous splash of almond milk is an ideal way to start the morning. We have tons of recipes to expand your smoothie repertoire, including this 3-ingredient cherry smoothie, but it’s hard to beat a classic chocolate or vanilla banana protein smoothie.
  3. Oatmeal: Oatmeal already has some protein in it, approximately 5 grams per bowl, as well as fiber which keeps you full longer. Adding your favorite protein powder or an Orgain protein shake to your oatmeal adds richness, flavor, and the protein you need to tackle whatever comes your way.
  4. Coffee: Add your protein powder to your hot coffee for a more virtuous version of a coffee shop concoction. Also try adding chilled coffee, a handful of ice, and your protein powder to the blender for a nutritious blended iced coffee. If coffee isn’t your cup of tea, try making a mug of Orgain’s peppermint hot cocoa protein powder or Orgain’s iced matcha latte protein powder for a customized cup of comfort.
