Well, basically, I am allergic to soy protein powder for some odd reason. So, I’ve been playing around with different protein powders on the market and have finally fallen in love with the perfect one! I used SunWarrior’s Chocolate Warrior Protein Powder. Why is it so good? It’s completely plant-based (vegan), low-sugar, non-soy, raw, a complete protein with all eight essential amino acids, and a chunk of vitamins and minerals! And, to top it off, they have a vanilla and chocolate flavor. It’s PERFECT. I devoured it within minutes, so delicious that I didn’t even taste the protein powder.
Most other protein powders that I have tried always had a chalky aftertaste so this made me very happy! It’s a very easy recipe and quick to make so I think you could even use this as a breakfast smoothie if you need a shot of protein to start your day!
