Getting My Protein with VeganSmart by Naturade

Thank you Naturade for the samples of VeganSmart!

After a discussion with my midwife about my prenatal protein intake she suggested I find a whole food plant based protein powder to add to my green smoothies.  Shortly after I had the opportunity to review VeganSmart protein powder by Naturade.

What's in VeganSmart:

  • Complete Protein Blend- From 5 different plants (all non GMO); pea, hemp, chia, potato, and chorella.
  • Whole Food Complex- 9 fruits and vegetables
  •  22 Vitamins & Minerals- to support body function down to the cellular level
  • Fiber & Omega Blend- to help regulate and provide support for the brain, heart and circulatory system.
  • Probiotics- to support gut health and digestion
  • Digestive Enzymes Blend- to help your body absorb and digest all the other goodness in the powder
What's not in VeganSmart:
  • Cholesterol
  • Trans Fats
  • Dairy
  • Soy
  • Gluten

I was sent three different flavors in the single serving packages; vanilla, chocolate and chai. 

First thing I noticed about this protein powder was the texture. It was stickier than others. I could dump the package into my blender or cup without risk of the powder floating up into the air. I tried the chocolate flavor and the vanilla flavor mixed in with my green smoothie. With my green smoothie, I preferred the vanilla flavor. I liked the chocolate, but it changed the dynamic of the smoothie where as the vanilla better complimented the flavor. 

I love chai and was excited to try this flavor, but didn't feel like it would go well in my smoothie. I would have really liked to try it in almond milk, but since we didn't have any I used regular milk. I simply filled a glass jar with milk, added the package of powder, put a lid on it and shook it up. It was nice and refreshing!

This is also an easy and convenient package to take on-the-go or keep in the purse for those unexpected moments! 

VeganSmart is definitely a protein powder I would recommend! Whether you plan on adding it to a smoothie, milk, or other non-dairy beverage, you'll be pleased with the flavor and all of the goodness that is packed into this powder. 

Buy it: You can visit Naturade to purchase a 12 pack of single serving packages for $35.88 or a 15 serving tub for $34.99. 

When it comes to adding protein into your diet, what do you look for in the ingredient list?

Disclosure: I received 5 single serving packets of Naturade's VeganSmart protein powder complimentary to help facilitate my review. Opinions are my own and honest. I was not compensated in any other way.
