add the powder to your glass first. Add a SMALL amount of water and stir with a fork so that a paste is formed. After the paste is formed, slowly add a little more water and continue stirring with the fork. Continue adding water bit by bit and stirring until you have added all the water you want. This will give you a beautiful smooth drink without any lumps whatsoever. Although it sounds like hassle and like it will take time, it really doesnt. it takes the same amount of time as it would to mix normally. Its simply far more sensible, efficient and gives the smoothest result.
