Review: Naturade Pea Protein Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder

Dear Readers:
   When I first heard the phrase Pea Protein , I admit I was intrigued and a bit wary of the flavor of the protein powder. I make a smoothie, or protein drink every time I work out, which is almost every day. So, I was excited to try Naturade's vegan pea protein in my daily drink. It was easy and fun. I added a packet to my strawberry banana smoothie with some stevia and ice. And, it was delicious and smooth. A real treat. And super healthy to boot.

 Here are all the deets from the lovely Naturade people:

  "The Naturade® research and development team is proud to introduce Naturade Pea Protein™. Pea Protein is a natural plant-based protein that is derived from yellow peas (Pisum sativum), also known as “split peas.” This product is highly soluble, easy to digest, hypoallergenic – and it tastes great! Naturade Pea Protein™ is formulated using only the highest quality pea protein isolate available. Its phenomenal amino acid profile includes nine essential amino acids. Since essential amino acids cannot be synthesized by the human body, they must be supplied by our diets. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and are used by our bodies to support our bones, muscles and connective tissues.
Naturade Pea Protein™ is all natural and contains no animal by-products, no artificial flavors, no artificial sweeteners and no artificial colors. We use non-GMO pea protein that is 100% gluten-free, cholesterol-free, soy-free and dairy-free. Each great tasting vanilla shake provides an excellent source of vegetable-based protein and is suitable for low-carbohydrate dieters, vegetarians, vegans, children, athletes and anyone needing extra protein in their daily diet."

Sounds amazing right?? I love that it contains nothing artificial, and I just may be a convert from my regular run of the mill protein powder from a big box store to this delicious pea protein. I love that it came in a handy serving sized packet. I didnt have to measure and it would make it super easy to make my protein drink at the park on the run (which I sometimes do).

YUM! Check out the links to find Naturade near you:
