What is the easiest way to make protein shakes?
Protein shakes are a staple of a high-protein diet. While I like to make recipes with protein powder (both to avoid protein farts and to keep from getting sick of shakes) it’s still my go-to when I need more protein in my day but I don’t have much time.
I’ve tried whisking, stirring, putting the powder in first, putting the powder in after the water, whispering chants, praying, and crying into my cup of chunky lumps. All of these methods are horrible. The only way of making protein shakes that works fast and consistently is a Blender Bottle. Grab a three-pack of Blender bottles, dump in your milk/water/almond milk, your powder, maybe some PB2, shake it for ten seconds, and chug it. Done.
And if you forget to immediately rinse your bottles – which is the easiest way to keep them clean – I wrote an article on how to get the stink out of your shaker cup if you leave it sealed up in your car or your desk at work.
