Weight loss has been associated with protein intake of late. A diet plan without protein powder has become a rarity. When I give diet plans to young boys, they frown at them for the lack of protein powder. Be me being me would never recommend the store-bought protein powder. So how to quench the desire for some powder to do the job? I started looking for how to make protein powder at home. My search for protein powder recipes at home ended in a curated set of ingredients and recipe that ensures protein intake without any preservatives.
How to make protein powder at home?
The recommended dietary allowance of protein for an adult who works out moderately is 1g per kg of body weight. It comes down to .8 if the person is leading a sedentary life and more if the person exercises regularly and vigorously. Hence the ideal protein intake depends on the lifestyle of the person.
The thought of making protein powder at home came to my mind when I was looking for a quarantine diet. This is because of two reasons. One is that I could not trust the ingredients of the whey protein that we buy from outside. Secondly, during quarantine, I had to find a homemade solution as we didn’t have access to courier services. Thus I ended up researching this. With my food and nutrition life coach experience, I went out to find a moderate recipe that is practical and nutritious.
To ensure a balanced protein powder, nuts like almonds, pistachios, and walnuts. cashew etc is an inevitable part. Hence if you have a nut allergy, you might not be able to consume this. So, here we go with protein powder recipes at home.
- 1 tbsp Ghee
- ½ cup Almonds
- ½ cup Walnuts
- ½ cup Pistachios
- ½ cup Cashews
- 3 tbsp Sunflower Seeds
- 3 tbsp Melon Seeds
- 3 tbsp Sesame Seeds
- 3 tbsp Flax Seeds
- 3 tbsp Dates
- 3 tbsp Raisins
- 1 tsp Fennel Seeds
- ½ tsp Green Cardamom

This is so far the best and easiest recipe I’ve seen today! Never knew making protein powder at home was this easy. I’m making some for me and husband for sure. Thank you for sharing this one.
This is a great healthy mix and it has all the ingredients that are there in Gond ladoo made by our Nanis & Dadis. I am surely making this to be added with milk.
I used to make a similar kind of multi-nut powder for my son when he was younger and added that to his milk. What you have shared is so nutritious for kids. This is a good way to introduce good healthy food for fussy eaters.
Rather than crushing all these high nutritious foods, I would like to eat them in their original form. I have never taken protein powder and never will. Anyways this is a much better option than powders available in the market.
