Recipe by Aine Davis
I am the complete opposite of a morning person and heavily rely on coffee to get me through the workday. I wish caffeine could cure all, but sometimes a more sustainable energy source is needed! We’ve found a delicious way to sneak some protein into your morning routine.
Here’s a simple protein “powder” recipe that you can make in bulk, store in your pantry, and use scoop-by-scoop as needed:
- Hemp hearts
- Chia seeds
- Soy, almond, or other nut milk of your choice
- Vanilla extract (for taste)
1) Using a blender, combine equal parts of all dry ingredients. Store in airtight container.
2) Add 1 tbsp protein mix to 1 medium-sized glass of nut milk with dash of vanilla extract. Stir and drink immediately.
