Home-made protein powder
I’m going to preface this by saying that it is VERY unlikely that any child who is not starved will be low on protein. Even those managing on an extremely limited diet get enough protein. Don’t think meat, protein is also found in milk, cheese, yoghurt, bread and pasta, for example.
However, many fussy eaters also don’t eat volumes of food, so making every mouthful count is important. I saw this recipe and liked it as it is simple, reasonably budget friendly and contains ingredients that are good additions to the diet.
I prefer home-made as doing so avoids many of the additives that come in store-bought foods. This does contain powered milk, which I think of as processed, but it has no additional ingredients.
I will showcase some recipes that use the protein powder over the next little while!
1 cup milk powder (I used full fat)
1/3 cup oat flour (or quinoa flakes or powder)
1/3 cup ground almonds
Mix well and store in an airtight container
