How to Use Naked Nutrition Protein Powder

Thank you for shopping at Naked Nutrition! We hope you’re excited to receive your order.

While our new customers are often anxious to receive their first purchase, it can be confusing to know where to start. 


Over time, we’ve noticed that our customers often have similar feedback and questions on how to maximize benefits with their new protein powder.

Based on this feedback, we’ve created this guide to walk you through how to optimize your protein usage.


Why Naked Nutrition is Different


Here at Naked Nutrition, we believe in providing premium Nutrition With Nothing To Hide.

Unfortunately, the fitness industry is full of supplements that are marketed as healthy but still contain dozens of unhealthy ingredients that are difficult to understand.


Our vision is to support your health and fitness goals by sourcing premium ingredients and using as few of them as possible. No hidden additions, no additives, and no artificial extras.

By keeping our products minimal, our customers know exactly what they’re putting into their bodies, giving them complete control over their own health. 


With no hidden extras, you can easily customize your nutritional intake to suit your own personal goals – and you never have to be worried about the quality of Naked products you put into your body.


What the Naked Difference Means for Taste & Mixing

As we aim to keep our products as minimal as possible, this means that we don’t fill our proteins with artificial sweeteners or sugars to mask the natural taste or include ingredients that assist in mixing. 


Our core protein products may not taste like your favorite ice cream, but this is because we believe our customers deserve real nutrition.There are plenty of other brands to choose from with heavily artificially flavored proteins. 


Filler ingredients can have a big negative impact on your health (and your goals). 


Whether your goal is to be as healthy as possible, maintain a youthful appearance or support your muscles so they can recover and grow optimally, it is best to avoid products with artificial fillers and additives.


But, although our products aren’t marketed to taste like milkshakes, the good news is that you can still create a delicious shake or smoothie with Naked Nutrition protein powders. 


How to Use Naked Nutrition Protein Powder


We typically recommend using two rounded scoops of protein per 6 – 10 oz of liquid, or to use one rounded scoop of protein per 5 oz of liquid. 


Our serving sizes are based on rounded scoops instead of level scoops, and the recommended serving size is printed on the product label if you’re unsure.

Adding ice to your shake is completely optional. For a thicker consistency, add 3 or 4 ice cubes per 10 oz of liquid. Too many ice cubes can cause your shake to thin out, so use them sparingly. Alternatively, use frozen fruit for a thick, creamy consistency.

As our products do not contain mixing agents, we recommend using a shaker bottle or a blender to mix.

When using a shaker bottle, shake for 25 – 30 seconds – let the product sit for a few minutes if there’s any foam.

With a blender, blend for 20 – 30 seconds. If you’re experiencing foam when blending, mix the other ingredients first, add the protein powder last and blend for another 5 – 10 seconds.

The Best Sweeteners for NN Proteins

Though our products never contain any artificial sweeteners, we all enjoy indulging in the occasional treat. With Naked Nutrition protein powders, you can create a delicious treat that’s also packed full of premium nutrition.

Here are a few of our favorite healthy sweeteners:

Stevia

This natural plant-based sweetener has been hailed as one of the healthiest sweeteners available. It’s calorie-free and is notably more sweeter than sugar, so use it lightly.

Monk Fruit Extract

Monk fruit extract is another plant-based sweetener that is known as a safe sweetening agent as it does not share the same side effects as non-nutritive or artificial sweeteners (e.g. sucralose)

Fruit

If you’re looking for a healthy way to sweeten up your shake, fruit is the way to go. Pineapples, oranges, and strawberries are great natural sweeteners.
