Uses for Gritty Protein Powder

I bought a small tub of non-dairy vanilla protein powder and I’m finding it unpalatably gritty with a strong artificial sweetener aftertaste. My hope was to use it for chia pudding, but it’s noticeable. Any ideas how I can use this up? I’m not committed to consuming a specific amount of protein powder - I just want to bump up my percentage of calories from protein a bit. The protein source is a mix of soy and eggs if that matters.

    Sounds like it’s best use is as a bin filler!

    If it’s gritty, I can’t imagine it can be redeemed by adding it to anything. Nothing will hide the grittiness (apart from mixing it with actual grit I suppose!).

    If the consistency was the only problem, I’d suggest throwing it in a coffee/spice grinder and seeing if it can be ground to a finer powder. However, if you don’t like the flavor either, toss it. Life is too short and calories are too precious to eat food you don’t like.

    Have you tried it in overnight oats? That usually isn’t smooth anyways so it may blend in.
