Do you loathe the taste of milk and can have it only if it's flavoured with other ingredients? We often end up adding store-bought protein powders that do lend their nutritional value but also add artificial flavouring agents and preservatives. Protein powder, in general, is a great addition to our diet since protein is essential for various functions of the body. Be it weight loss, bone health, immunity or for boosting energy and metabolism, protein works in multiple ways to care for our health.
If you want to increase your protein intake to level up your weight loss diet, why not go for healthier homemade protein powder? We found a video by nutritionist, Avanti Deshpande, on her YouTube channel that lets us make two kinds of protein powders with almost the same ingredients. You can make elaichi-flavoured protein powder and chocolate flavour protein powder in one go.
