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:
- Trans Fats
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.
