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.
