    I love that you choose New Zealand Whey, and I’ve never heard of it! I wonder if it’s even available in New Zealand.. I look forward to doing this myself! Always wondered how I could make my protein powder more… real, and of course homemade. In the meantime we are using Whey Gourmet Naturelle which uses cane sugar and Stevia – it’s the only protein supplement we can find in the Northwest Territories!

    Love this idea! I buy the Isopure Unflavored (it’s totally unsweetened/unflavored) so I’ll be doing the vanilla for sure!

    Sooo…do you think maybe you could give us recipes each inspired by the flavors you made?? :)

    Great idea though – I never would have thought to do this!

    I love this idea. I usually stick to vanilla because all the other flavours rwquire questionable ingredients. I’m currently using BioX Whey Isolate. Will look for your suggested brands also. Thanks for the flavour recipes. Where do you get the templates for your adorable labels??!!

    Thank you so much for the recipes. My sister and I are very excited to try them. Just wondering what ratio you use? Is it the same as regular protein powder? Thank you!

    THANK YOU! I can’t not wait to try this. I think I’ll actually try tomorrow. Or not. Because I don’t have powdered Stevia.

    I have one of those huge containers of unflavored protein powder and I just can’t use it. I try putting it in my smoothie but it’s just awful. Since I bought that, I’ve found Stevia sweetened protein powder which I love. So it’s just been sitting there.

    I’ll report back! I’m thinking I’ll try cinnamon, chocolate and vanilla. :D

    Hi Sonia!

    Very handy recipe.

    Just wanted to make sure about the stevia packet size, is it the standard 3g packets?

    Thanks!

    Another great place for 100% pure protein, all varieties, with no additives and cheap as: http://professionalwhey.com.au/

    They have whey, casein, hydrolyzed, non-dairy proteins, supplements, super foods, all additive free and very well priced!

    I’m not working for them, I just find their product great! :)

    Thanks for the info, I just wanted to say that it is also important to know the different types of whey protein listed on the ingredient labels. Whey protein concentrate is the lowest and cheapest form of whey with high fat and carb contents that slow down the absorption rate of the protein, great to have before bed so you’re getting nutrients through-out the night. Next comes Isolate, which has less fat and carbs, and a higher rate of absorption. And finally hydrolysate, which gets absorbed the fastest, great for a post workout supplement. Each form of whey has is benefits and drawbacks, but its important to make sure you always buy all natural whey protein because some companies add fillers and preservatives that can lead to consuming more carbs and fat than you need.

    Do you mix it with water or milk or something else? How much liquid do you use?

    Hey, I was wondering that when you make a shake with these what exactly would you add? For my normal vanilla protein powder I use some milk and then orange juice for a shake. So I’m just curiose about what would you add to the chia, chocolate, and cinnamon mixes for a shake since orange juice wouldn’t work to well. Thanks.

    Does this disolve like normal whey powder? I love diy and anything more-healthy but I’d be afraid that some of the added ingreedients wouldn’t disolve the same way and cause a funny texture. Has anyone had that problem? I don’t want to get stuck with a jar of protein powder that I don’t enjoy. Thanks!

    Just wondering about the amount of whey protein powder that you used, when you say that you used 6 scoops of whey protein l noticed one product for one scoop is 15 grams and the other is 30 grams so how much grams would you use to make a batch please

    Hey Sonia! I just stumbled upon your blog and your interessting article here. I was searching for a DIY birthday present for my sport obsessed brother. I think this would make a perfect gift!! He is also very careful with non-healthy added ingredients/flavours. Could you recommend a Matcha powder?
    Thank you very much for this!
    Best regards from Germany :)

    I just found this post thanks to your interview with Marie at Not Enough Cinnamon. I love the idea of making my own flavors, and your ideas for flavors. Currently I’ve been using Designer Whey in French Vanilla, Almond Vanilla (occasionally) and Double Chocolate, all sweetened with Stevia and, at least to me, not overly sweet. They also have a Gourmet Chocolate flavor sweetened with Stevia which is good, but not as good as the Double Chocolate. Really looking forward to trying a few of these flavors.

    Love this post. I started making my own powder about a year ago. I use Bob’s Red Mill Whey Protein Concentrate as the base and then recently discovered that my local Sprouts starting carrying concentrate in bulk. Do you mind clarifying exactly how much one “scoop” is? I use so many mismatched scoops. Also a tip on chocolate peanut butter: I use powered peanut butter (can be found online, at Whole Foods, or Sprouts) and it adds wonderful flavor and consistency

    An interesting trend that may add a new flavor for you. Powdered Peanut Butter. Less fat and sugar then conventional PB and even the organic ones. Its usually where you would find PB in the natural food stores. I’m not sure if its in the mainstream grocery stores yet.

    Hi, I don’t mean to be weird about this, but what GOOD does it do to drink or eat the Whey Protein to begin with. I bought it awhile ago, it was flavored chocolate, and we tried it in a berry blender thingy, and it tasted like we were eating or drinking chocolate flavored grass. what did I do wrong? seems like ALOT of ppl like this whey protein, so….why drink it to begin with is my question. thank you very much, this is a serious question
