Manitoba Harvest Organic Hemp Protein Vanilla -- 1 lb
When you open the container, you will indeed see green hemp protein powder. It doesn't taste like the Vanilla shakes that you would typically get from a standard protein shake. Expect something more "hempy" than vanilla.
Still though, I find that the powder does a fine job of blending with my shake concoctions.
When I do smoothies, I cram-pack them with vegetables and frozen fruits; using nut milks and juice for the liquid base.
I actually did a comparison with using Spiru-tein Soy Protein Vanilla in my shake vs the Manitoba Harvest Hemp Vanilla. The Spiru-tein wound up tasting too much like candy and almost sickly sweet. The hemp protein was just right.
All in all, I think it's a fine product and I plan on purchasing it again.

This stuff is very gritty
The taste is OK but it is a little too gritty for me.

Gritty but good.
This protein supplement fills me up, and I appreciate its simple and natural ingredients. I am also a proponent of Hemp, in general, so I love supporting this product.
Its is on the gritty side, and does not make a smooth, milk-like smoothie... More of a fibrous hemp-like one. If you drink several a day, make sure you've got lots of water in you, otherwise it can bind you up.
I recommend the vanilla over the plain.

Tastes great in smoothies, hope they bring the price down some.

I love it!!!
This is the best tasting protein I ever had and I've tried them all. I add it to smoothies, soups, freshly made vegetable juice. I just love it.
