We've all had the experience of having a protein shake that tastes great, followed by the disappointment of a protein shake that is clumpy and gross. The truth is there are several important factors that go into making a delicious tasting protein shake that you need to know to get it right.
Here our are top tips to ensure your next shake tastes fantastic.
1. Choose the right type of protein
If taste is important then you want to choose a whey protein that has been 'instantised'. This means the whey protein has added ingredients to improve its mixability with liquids, Both Whey Protein Concentrate and Whey Protein Isolate are instantised whey proteins and provide the best blendability.
2. Try with milk or milk substitute instead of water
Are you mixing your shakes with water? Try mixing instead with milk or a milk substitute such as soy milk, almond milk or coconut milk. As an added bonus mny of these milk alternatives have added health benefits. such as almond milk potentially reducing the risk of heart disease.
3. Fill your ingredients the right way
Adding your protein powder first then your liquid is a sure way to get clumping of the protein powder at the bottom of your shaker. To avoid this, fill your shaker or container half full with water or milk first, then add your protein powder before finally topping up the rest of your shaker. This way you will avoid floating clumps of protein in your shake.
4. Mix in ice and flavour enhancers.
Protein shakes always taste better when chilled. Add some ice in to chill down and don't forget to add in some added flavour enhancers. Blueberries, bananas or even a shot of espresso can help round out your shakes flavour. You could even try adding a nut butter to get some added sweetness and texture in your shake.
5. Use a blender
A smooth consistency without lumps is key to a great tasting shake. The best way to achieve this is to use a blender to ensure every ounce of protein is blended right through the shake. This will also blend in any of the extra ice or flavours you have added. Adding some ice turns this into a great chilled protein shake.
