Crazyyyyy GOOD!!!
This taste AMAZING with 2 ice cubes, handful of frozen blueberries, some water and a little peanut butter powder mixed with a blender. I keep the water low to make the mix more slushy like and use a straw to drink. Look forward to this everyday!!!

Love the fact that I can get away from dairy whey protein because I eat enough dairy already throughout the day (eggs, cheese, milk).

I should say I get the Vanilla flavor and this will be my go to protein for 2019!

Love the taste
I was Taking Orgain Organic Protein powder , but wasn't too crazy with it Due to a chalky taste. Switched to this one and loved, Will continue to buy more.

As vegan, is very difficult to reach all the grams of protein your body needs, specially when you are weight lifting. I used to be a very skinny girl but with high % of fat. Now, with this product, I switched my porcentages of fat/muscle. I gained lean muscle and my % of fat got reduced. I personally love this product because it tastes great and is not extremely sweet, just enought sweet. It disolves very easy on water (altough I always take it with pea-protein milk) and the texture is delicious. I always mix it with berries. What I like the most is that this product keeps me satisfied for about 4/6 hours, gives me energy and I can see and feel the improvement results. And not, you dont get fat consuming this product.
