I’ve been messing with this powder mix for a few months now and finally have it where I want it to be in taste, price and nutrition. The wonderful thing about ‘homemade’ is that you can make it up the way that you want it to be, not me. Or not some store that puts it on a shelf for years. Then marks down the price to try to move it out more quickly. You can make this powder up in relatively little time for less money and more bang for your smoothie buck.
I sprouted the broccoli seeds and buckwheat to push up the nutrition in those powders even more. Just dehydrate your sprouts on about 100 degrees for a few hours until they’re dried then grind them in the coffee grinder like everything else in this powdered protein mix. Of course you can leave the cocoa out and add in another flavor or leave plain. Cocoa is surprisingly high in protein though so I’d leave it and enjoy a thick, rich chocolate smoothie that fills you up with fiber, folic acid, iron, calcium and of course
My version has equal parts dehydrated broccoli spouts, cocoa powder, turbinado sugar, wild rice, red rice, brown rice, gluten free oats, and sprouted buckwheat groats. Grind them all up in a coffee grinder until you have a fine powder and then blend together and store in an airtight container for months. Freezer works best to maintain the nutritional values until you are ready to scoop and enjoy!
3 oz of this mix, or 6 or 7 Tbs. will get you a whole lot a protein into your smoothies. With this mix in equal parts of each ingredient it gives you about 22 grams of protein per drink, not to mention what’s in the fruit and nut milks you may use. Awesome.
