Powder based drinks - tartar buildup

hi,
i have very bad tartar buildup case despite brushing 3 times a day, flossing once, using tongue cleaner/scraper.. and rinsing after meal.
I've been struggling to figure out what was causing it.. and from all research that I have done I suspect that it is most likely my very high powder based drinks consumption (protein shakes).
I found some articles claiming, that powder based drinks leave gritty film on enamel which interacts with bacteria and it causes plaque and then tartar.
I am thinking to reduce the amount of protein shake consumption.. and I wonder what else could possibly help to prevent that? drinking shakes using straw? using tongue scraper/cleaner after each consumption? mouthwash after each consumption?
any advice would be appreciated.
thanks
