We get it, not everyone likes milk
Most protein powders can be mixed with water in a shaker bottle – But as you have probably understood by now, Purition is much more than ‘just a protein shake’ and so requires a little more TLC due to its natural ingredients.
To be honest we don’t think that mixing Purition with water is the best way to make or to enjoy your Purition shake. If you mix with water, it just tastes, well… watery. The natural ingredients contained in our blends work far better with milk or your favourite milk alternative – unsweetened nut milk tastes delicious with Purition, as it provides a natural creaminess without the need for unnecessary milk powders or creamers.
That said, you can blend Purition with water instead of milk. Remember there will be less nutritional calories, so up your Purition serving to 50g and use slightly less water, max 200ml and maybe add an ice-cube?
Using water and a high powered blender is fine. If you don’t use a high powdered (600w) nutri-bullet type blender Purition would end up just being ‘watery’ as the ‘real food’ ingredients don’t dissolve like ultra refined ingredients and gums etc…
If it’s a cold day try; a splash of hot boiled water to make an instant porridge mix.
To enjoy Purition at its best:
Blend 40g of Purition with 250ml cold milk/ nut milk and drink straight away
If you like to make more of a ‘Smoothie’ for breakfast and enjoy including other ingredients (like frozen berries or a little banana for example), using water works – adding a spoonful of yoghurt for a little natural creaminess is delicious too.
You can use a shaker if you need to – when you’re away from home and you don’t have your blender to hand, you’ll still need to shake with milk though. Be aware, shaking it is not for the uninitiated! It has a completely different texture when prepared this way, much thinner with a delicious and nutritious nutty crunch at the end!
