Sunwarrior Warrior Blend Raw Vegan Protein Natural -- 2.2 lbs
I am not a fan of protein powders as most are full on junk. I was happy to find this one was pretty simple in terms of ingredients. Based on reviews of other flavors, I settled on natural as I didnt want anything to overpower my smoothies and it doesnt. It blends pretty well with my banana, mixed berry and spinach smoothies not to mention I love that its a plant based protein. I typically use a hemp protein powder but this will also be a staple in my pantry!
Im not sure how this would taste with plain almond milk or water, but i specifically bought it for my smoothies so for that purpose its great!

I have tried several of the protein powders from Vitacost, & they all have good qualities. But I like the extensive amino acid profile, the varied sources of protein, & the fact that it's very a low carb & high protein formulation. I use it every day in my smoothies, w/ spinach or other greens, almonds, raw ginger, goat yogurt or kieffer, various fruits, & water. This unsweetened variety does not overpower the taste of the other ingredients, & I sometimes mix it with the chocolate flavor of this same brand for a little more sweetness. As a gluten free vegan, I depend on this for my main protein.

I wanted a truly plain dairy/casein free protein powder so I could jazz it up to my liking w/o added junk that the flavored varieties have. I like to mix mine w/dark chocolate almond Silk. Using a blender would probably be best to avoid chunkiness.

Great base for smoothies. No weird taste.
I like this powder, it has no weird taste or after taste. It is also neither grainy nor chalky. It has a very light texture, almost fluffy in the bag - that is probably why it mixes well with water and is a great base for your smoothies. I agree that I would not drink this on it's own since it has no flavor, I add another product to this or just mix it with fruits and greens. You will also notice in the nutrition information that it has 0 grams of sugar which is great because other protein powders are usually too sweet for me, and I know they do this to mask the weird flavors. So yeah, give this a try and you might like it too. It is what I was looking for, raw and vegan. It is also non GMO though I wish it was organic (My real rating is 4-1/2 stars for that)!

Great protein and ingredients. If you don't want something synthetic and chemical based, then try this one. I think the other products in this line are also good. I use this in my smoothies daily and like it. My daughter likes it as well if I make it with fruits she likes. Has a typical protein powder aftertaste but not awful at all.
