Keurig Progenex

Has anyone tried making their Progenex Cocoon in a Keurig machine? They have cups that you can add your own coffee in them and thought it might be used for Progenex as well.

Re: Keurig Progenex

The idea of coffee is that you run water over the ground beans to infuse the flavor of the grounds in to the water without actually mixing the grounds into the water.

The idea of protein powder is to mix the powder in water to reconstitute the protein into a drinkable form.

This sounds like a bad idea that wouldn't work. I can imagine 90% of the protein powder being left in the k-cup as a clumpy mess.

I've also had poor results mixing protein powders into very hot liquids.

Just use the Keurig without a cup in the machine and it will brew plain hot water, then mix the Cocoon into that with a spoon.

Re: Keurig Progenex

I usually just mix two scoops in my shaker with hot water but thought it would be something to try. If you have ever made hot chocolate mix in your Keurig, it completely mixes with the hot water and leaves nothing left in the K Cup. I just thought it might do the same for Cocoon.

Re: Keurig Progenex

This!! Ive already tried this month ago when I got mines. Same results LOL.

I usually shake 1 scoop of cocoon in a blender bottle for about a min. Pour into a mug and nuke it for 1.5 minutes. Still left with a few small clunks though.

I am on my last scoop of cocoon, anyone reccomend something similar for recovery? in a drink form as well. I love Progenex cocoon, but its just too expensive for me.

Thanks in advance!!
