kencko | Pro tips 2: Choose your mixers

Pro tips 2: Choose your mixers

One of the most frequent questions we get is, “What should I mix my kencko with?” We put together this little Mixology 101 to help you decide.


We made kencko to go wherever you go, and that’s why it works just fine with plain, cold water (chilled for preference, definitely not hot or sparkling!) The one exception is our chocolatey protein smoothie golds, which is designed to shine when combined with the creaminess of something like oat or almond milk. But you’ll find that all your favorite flavors take on a whole new character when you switch things up a bit. 


See the list below for all our recommendations - but ultimately, it’s in your hands. You can mix kencko with any cold liquid (within reason - we don’t recommend dish soap or tequila!), stir it through yogurt or overnight oats, and use it in baking too - so get experimenting, and don’t forget to share your recipes with us on Instagram @kencko.
