Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein -- 15 g - 3 lbs
good protein supplement
I am limited on what kinds of protein powder I can have - no soy, rice, dairy/whey, etc - hemp it is! I like this stuff, sweeten it with some stevia and it makes a pretty good drink. Sometimes I mix it with vanilla almond milk, water, stevia and ice and take it go - I've been known to even add in a green energy powder (which sounds gross) but I was surprised it was still pretty tasty :)

Gritty, but tolerable
Pros: Organic, great protein-to-calorie ratio, cheaper in bulk, doesn't taste bad.
I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for an organic protein source. It has a good amount of protein for the number of calories per serving, which is great for those who want high protein, but lower calories.
Tastes like peas, so it's not bad at all. I prefer to drink it with water, but I've tried it with milk (OK) and with chocolate milk (better).
The problem I have with it, is it is pretty gritty. I've tried shaking it longer and shaking more vigorously, but the grittiness remains. After a couple of servings, it leaves my throat feeling like I have a sore throat. I just have to remind myself that it is the drink and not that I'm getting sick. I think they need to mill the product further.
When I get tired of the grittiness, I usually mix it in with a some chocolate milk powder. The thickening agent in the choco-milk makes it easier to deal with.
Overall, great product.

Organic, high fiber, high protein, plant based. If only it tasted good.
It has that grassy taste so definitely make a shake with it. I just use milk, banana, and cinnamon. Nutritionally, this product is amazing.
