Source Naturals Pea Protein Power™ -- 32 oz
Great in fruit or veggie smoothies
I ordered this because the Vitacost brand pea protein powder, which I loved to eat straight and mix in smoothies was out of stock. At first, I was very disappointed with the taste of the Source Naturals Pea Protein Powder as it has a strong pea taste and definitely not palatable to eat by itself or to mix with my almond milk, cocoa powder, banana and chia seed smoothies. But since I did not want to throw away the brand-new bottle, I decided to try it in my morning breakfast fruit smoothies (whole orange, banana, Green Plus Wild Berry, avocado, lime, stevia, pea protein and water) and was very pleasantly surprised to discover that I liked the taste. Plus not having any added sweeteners and a much lower calorie count than the Vitacost brand really helped. I have since been re-ordering whenever I run out. I still love and continue to order the Vitacost brand pea protein powder for my chocolate almond smoothies and use both brands. Each has their own unique taste profile that works for different types of smoothies.

I bought this product when Vitacost's own brand was out of stock. The taste of this powder is terrible and I had to throw it out. A frustrating waste of money. I can only assume that the other reviewers that rate this product highly have never tried a decent tasting protein powder.

Great vegan protein source
I mix this with oatmeal and chia seeds and microwave the mixture for a great breakfast. At first I noticed the slight but distinct pea taste -- wasn't bad, just different -- but these days I don't even think about it. Great product.

I used this product once, and will not do it again. The taste was terrible. I even had it mixed with fruit. It was very chalky also.

Source Naturals Pea Protein Powder is great. It dissolves quickly in smoothies and doesn't give me gas or makes me feel bloated. It gives me just the right amout of protein in the mornings. I would recommend this product to those who do not have sensitivity to any pea products.
