Preparation, uses, and tips

Blend diet powders with rice milk or soy milk for a quick dairy-free breakfast. Combine them in a blender with bananas, peaches, or berries for added nutrition.

Buying and storing tips

Look for diet powders in the supplement section of health food stores, or in the specialty foods section of some supermarkets. Store diet powders in a cool, dark location for up to six months.


Diet powders are available in individual packets or larger canisters in a variety of flavors, with chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry being the most common. Natural diet powders with natural sweeteners, colors, and flavors are also available. Many are fortified with vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.
