My Experience With Vegan Protein

One of my favorite things about what I do is the fact that I get to try a large range of workout supplements. Some are great... and then there are those that aren't so great.

For the longest time, I had heard of Sunwarrior product, but I had never tried them... until now! 

Sunwarrior is a super popular line of vegan and plant based workout supplements. Their products are guaranteed to be raw and organic! I am usually hooked on whey, casein, and other milk based protein, so it was nice to see what the vegan protein powders were all about!

I received the Sunwarrior starter kit which incudes:

  • Warrior Blend Protein (Chocolate and Vanilla)-a pea, cranberry, and hemp based protein powder.
  • Classic Protein (Chocolate and Vanilla)- a whole grain brown rice based protein powder.
  • Supergreens (Natural and Peppermint)-includes potent nutrition from alfalfa, barley grass, wheat grass, spinach, oat grass, parsley, moringa, and ginger to boost your overall health.
  • Liquid Light-improves the absorption and assimilation of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients as well as boosting energy and endurance.
  • Immune Shield-a natural fulvic acid and mineral complex that is fortified with silver ions to help boost your immune system.
  • Activated Barley-a performance boosting superfood that also enhances immunity and endurance.
I tried the Warrior Blend in chocolate first. I blended this protein with 8 oz. of water in my Sunwarrior shaker cup! The taste caught me off guard in the beginning as I am so used to whey protein. This protein is made of raw pea protein as well as hemp and cranberry protein. You can read the full nutrition list here.

Next, I made a protein and fruit smoothie with the vanilla Classic Protein powder which is made from whole grain brown rice protein. You can view the ingredient listing here.

Sunwarrior Fruit & Protein Shake

-1 packet Sunwarrior Classic Protein Powder (Vanilla)
-1 premade frozen smoothie pack (1/4 cup orange juice, 5 strawberries, 1/4 cup blueberries, 1/2 banana)
3/4 cup water.
-Ice to desired consistency (optional)

1. Blend until smooth.
2. Add more ice for a thicker smoothie. Less for a thinner smoothie.

The result was nothing less than perfection and it was gone within minutes!
