Vitacost Organic Hemp Protein High Fiber Drink Mix -- 16 oz
Exactly what I was looking for!
Not a big breakfast person, I was looking for a shake. I hate any type of sweetener and want to stay away from soy. I mix this with Greek yogurt, equal parts almond milk and water, cinnamon, vanilla extract, a small ripe frozen banana and a small amount of crushed ice. I think the cinnamon disguises the "plant" taste. I am SO happy I found this! (:

Nice product, nice price!
My wife and I make fruit smoothies every day. We add rice protein, and I just started adding a scoop of this hemp protein as well. It adds extra fiber and tastes pretty good - a little grassy (pardon the pun), but not overpowering. The price is nice too!

Nutritionally it is exclent
This is a great product in two very important aspects:
1 - nutritionally (excellent source of protein, fibers and healthy fats)
2 - solubility
But a problem is the taste... it taste as a plant extract... It is very hard to swallow 4 spoons of this powder with water, juice, or whatever...
Now I use it in a blend I made with other protein powders and other stuff, and I almost cannot feel the plant taste.

Easy to Use
I went back to the Hemp Powder after trying hemp oil and finding that just too strong for me. I'll stick with the powder. I'm a busy single mom so on weekends I take the hemp powder and mix it in a Tupperware bowl with other ingredients like Chia Powder, ground almonds, a bit of cinnamon etc. and put it in the refrigerator. Then in the morning I can throw a few tablespoons in my fruit shake, blend and go.

Deep green smoothie
Makes very green, nutty smoothies. Not gummy like a different brand that I tried. I use occasionally as change of pace from whey protein.
