GROWING NATURALS PEA PROTEIN REVIEW

My protein powder of choice is Growing naturals protein, today I am reviewing the vanilla blast pea protein let me tell you a few reasons why I simply love it:

It is plant based and contains no animal products

it is dairy and soy free, since many people have allergens to these 2 things that is worth knowing

it is low fat

it contain 15g of protein per serving

6g of carbohydrate

3g of sugar

0 cholesterol

3g of branch chained amino acids (BCAAS) These are the building blocks of muscle, you need these to repair and build muscle effectively

it is made from NONGMO raw peas

no artificial sweeteners

no artificial flavorings or dyes….this is something that is widely used by many other protein companies

the pea protein is an amzing source of iron…30% of your daily value in one scoop! nice!

Now lets get down to taste…the vanilla blast pea protein tastes like cake batter to me, It can stand alone in a shaker bottle mixed only with water or almond milk and still taste just great. I have done this many times on the run. More often I choose to use it in protein shakes/smoothies with other ingredients but I have had many protein powders in the past that cannot stand alone in a shaker bottle on their own. The vanilla really pops in this product and it has a great texture too. I have been using it for abut 3 years now and it has helped me achieve new muscle growth,and great recovery. I literally look forward to making shakes with it.  Here is one I just recently made if you are looking to get more fat burning fiber rich foods into your life then this is an excellent snack or breakfast shake to treat your body to!
