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:

Ingredients…

  • Hemp hearts
  • Flaxseed
  • Chia seeds
  • Soy, almond, or other nut milk of your choice
  • Vanilla extract (for taste)

Directions…

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.
