Good, Clean Protein
It's unflavored and pure protein, so don't be all salty about the flavor. Mix it with a smoothie if you want flavor. It's vegan protein with a ton of BCAAs. EAT IT.
good but taste is bad
This is a good supplement to take if you are vegetarian or vegan or just want to switch to a natural protein supplement with no animal products. I definitely like the idea of taking a supplement with no animal products, but the taste is pretty bad. It is unflavored, but that does not mean that it has no flavor. You will definitely taste it, so i recommend mixing it with another drink that has pretty strong flavoring. However, I take protein for the protein and not the taste.
I wont be trying this again.
I kid the lady all the time that if her head starts spinning and she begins spitting pea protein shake everywhere im running out the door. I called myself giving it a shot, no thanks she can keep it. It is so horrible tasting it probably is the healthiest thing in the pantry. I had to spike it with mio just to down the shake. It was super powdery and gets everywhere as soon as you open the tub. It does have a nice amount of protein in each scoop so i can see where it serves a purpose. Not my favorite so really wont be bringing this to the attention of others.
Have been using this pea protein product for several months. I used to use shakeology. That product has a lot more sugar, less protein and much more expensive.
Works! But tastes bad...
I was really excited to get and use this powder to replace the strawberry Designer Whey I had been using. When I got this, I made a huge mess opening it, as the powder is VERY fine, like talcum powder. It also tastes disgusting, at least compared the DW. I mixed the powder with almond milk, frozen fresh mixed berries (black, razz, blue) and spinach. I did get used to it as the weeks went on. In order to lessen its grossness, I purchased a small container of unsweetened cocoa powder and sprinkle a little of it along with the other ingredients. This doesnt taste nearly as good as the DW powder, but I do think it is a bit more healthy. I would recommend it if taste is not a huge concern for you. After all, one serving of about two cups is nothing really. Down the hatch!
