Here’s a recipe for how to make your own Homemade Lentil Protein Powder that you can use in smoothies or baked goods. It’s an easy, budget-friendly recipe.




  1. Rinse lentils and pick through for any debris.
  2. Place the lentils in a large pot, and cover with the water.
  3. Turn the heat to high. Once the pot is simmering, reduce the heat, cover the pot, and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  4. Once the lentils have done cooking, transfer them to a storage container. Place them in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to cool down.
  5. Now, divide the cooked and cooled lentils on several dehydrator sheets (they should have room to breathe) and dehydrate them at 115°F for 10-12 hours, or until completely dry.
  6. Place the dried sprouted lentils into a high-speed blender and process finely into a powder.


Use the homemade lentil powder in smoothies or baked goods to add plant-based protein to the dish.

Store the powder in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dry place for up to several weeks.
