The Crucial Tip For Adding Protein Powder To Your Smoothies
Adding protein powder to your smoothie is an easy way to get your daily dose, and they come in fun flavors that can make your morning drink tasty.
However, when whirled in the blender, protein powder can turn your smoothie into a big, foamy mess. This is because most powders contain whey.
Whey is a milk protein made up of amino acids that are held together by peptide bonds. When blended at a high speed, the bonds break, creating foam.
To avoid this, blend together all your smoothie ingredients except the protein powder, then add the powder at the end and blend it for just a few seconds.
The protein powder will have enough time to mix into your smoothie, but you won't get all that extra air that can make your drink unpleasant.
