does protein powder go bad
Need some ideas with your water kefir / milk kefir? Why not make delicious smoothies.
~~~~> Here are my smoothie “rules” that I stick by to help me make sure my smoothies are always yummy:
Use a good blender. If you’re in the smoothie-making business, you should invest in a great blender. Trust me, it’s worth the cash not to have to chew your smoothie. I worked with a lower quality blender for years, and it was always frustrating to make a smoothie (and I broke the thing twi...ce!). Vitamix and Blendtec are both well-loved and highly recommended. I personally use a Ninja Ultima. I love it because it’s just as powerful as those “big” brands, but a lot more affordable. No need to take a second mortgage on your house just to make some smoothies.
Use your (unsweetened) milk of choice. If you’re a fan of coconut milk, use it. Like cow’s milk? Go for it. A fan of almondmilk? Cool.
Use whatever milk you like in your smoothies—you can’t go wrong. I just recommend to stick to unsweetened and unflavored versions. That gives you the most control of the smoothie.
Sweeten to taste. All of these smoothies here use frozen banana as a base (more on that in a sec), and bananas vary in sweetness. My recommendation is to blend up your smoothie without any added sweetener, then taste. Add in honey or maple syrup to taste. Many times, I don’t need to add anything! Another great natural option for sweetening: pitted Medjool dates. Throw in one or two of those bad boys and let the blender do it’s thing. You’d be amazed at how sweet your smoothie will be!
Stock the freezer for easy smoothies. I throw a frozen banana into every single smoothie I make. It adds a lot of creaminess, sweetness, and nutrition, and honestly, bananas are just yummy as all get out. When I go grocery shopping, I buy the biggest, ripe bunch I can find. Then when I get home, I freeze the whole bunch in chunks.
Use your creativity for mix-ins. The smoothie recipes below are plain—no chia-hemp-does protein powder go bad powder concoctions. But if you want to expand your smoothie horizons, go for it! Toss in chia seeds or protein powder or hemp seeds or flax or whatever else makes your heart happy. If you have a standard set of mix-ins you like, you can even freeze them into booster packs—great for really quick and easy smoothies!
