Freeze Drying Protein Shakes

Protein shakes are one of the most popular health supplements used by athletes, bodybuilders, and other active adults. Protein shakes can help with weight loss, building muscle, and recovery. They are a common breakfast drink and are also often consumed after a hard workout. In fact, a post-workout protein shake is considered the best method to refuel and optimize muscle growth.

A Harvest Right freeze dryer makes it easy to have a protein shake ready to drink whenever you need it. Simply make a large batch of protein shake in your blender by adding milk, protein powder, and any fruit or other ingredients you desire. Blend the shake and pour it into a tray and freeze dry. Once freeze dried, the dried shake can easily be ground into a powder and placed into an airtight container. Before you head off to the gym, just portion out some powder into a protein shaker. After your workout, all you do is add water and you are ready to drink.

A freeze dryer can also make other ingredients that you can easily add to your healthy shakes and smoothies. For example, freeze-dried spinach and kale can be ground into a powder and added to increase the vitamins and nutrition of your drinks. Freeze-dried fruits like raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries are also a great way to add flavor to a shake or smoothie.

I still don’t have the answer about the shelf life of freeze drying a pre-made liquid boost drink that has oil as one of the ingredients. 🙂 Be great to have this answer still.
I have found a powdered version with 🚫 oil and all other products that can spoil long term storage. You can’t use the chocolate flavored one but having pure coco in storage fixes that in a jiffy.
