    It is really good–if you blend it with bananas! I have been on Amazon and other sites for a day and a half now reading all the reviews on vegan protein (the main three brands–this one, Sun Warrior and Vega). I too, was hesitant to try it, but I went to my local health food store and bought a couple of the sample packets to try. I honestly think it is really really good! Here’s a little background on me and what helps: I have a Vita Mix, which I think is essential, or at least a blender, but a Vita Mix will turn any graininess into something smooth (anyone who has one probably knows what it will do to cashews). It took me a while to learn how to make and drink a decent green smoothie as well, so I have consumed green things and stuff that many people do curl their noses at, including raw brownies which I thought were good, but someone used to eating crap thought it tasted like crap.First, I really think if you are someone who is used to highly sweetened and artificially flavored processed foods, you may not like this. But if you are someone who has experimented with making interesting healthy concoctions or someone who’s dabbled with a raw vegan diet and green smoothies, I really think you will find this pleasing. Now, I’ve only made this once, but all I did was put about 10 oz or so of water in my Vita Mix, add some frozen bananas (which may have equaled about 1 1/2 bananas), started blending, then added the whole packet of Raw Protein (which I believe is the full 22g 2 scoop serving) and maybe a little more water to get the consistency that I wanted. I waited with bated breath until it was blended and creamy and then I tasted it and wouldn’t you know, it’s pretty darn good! To me, made this way, it tastes like banana flavored baby cereal.I was tempted to add in more fruit, but I really wanted to see what the least amount of fruit was that I could make this with and have it taste decent. The banana made it sweet enough for me and maybe it was ever so slightly chalky, but to me, I hardly noticed it. I found it to taste way better than whey protein, which to me has a sour milk kind of taste. Now, this is the first totally vegan, non-soy kind of protein that I’ve tried, but I think it’s darn good. I can see adding a little raw cacao powder to it and maybe like I think someone else suggested, adding a little almond butter or organic peanut butter just for something different, but really, you need to blend it to get rid of whatever graininess it may have and bananas to me have such a strong flavor that they are very good at masking other flavors.So, that’s it. Buy some samples and experiment with it. I’m going to try adding cacao next and maybe some peanut butter, but I’m perfectly happy with how this came out with just bananas. It kind of happened that way with my green smoothies–at first I was putting in all this stuff and making them so complicated and it got to the point where bananas and spinach or bananas and kale with maybe a couple berries tasted great.Update: I tried it again this morning (in my Vita Mix) with a couple tablespoons of raw cacao powder, frozen bananas, and a little bit of agave (which is all I had), but honey would be better and it was really really good, almost delicious! Plus, I have had absolutely no gastrointestinal issues whatsoever (not even one little gurgle) and I was worried about that because I have poor digestion although I did still take a digestive enzyme with it, but still, if something is going to react badly with me, the digestive enzyme won’t always help. I feel light, but satiated with a nice amount of energy from this. I’m pretty excited about this protein powder and I’m also hoping that it will help me quit my morning coffee habit! I think adding the cacao powder made it really good and gave it a mocha kind of flavor, but again, I put it in my Vita Mix, so I really think a blender of some sort is necessary with this. Later I think I’m going to try a little bit of orange juice and bananas and see how that is, but to me, the powder itself has a tiny bit of a nutty flavor, so mixing it with things that go with nuts is probably better. But certainly, this is far from being horrible tasting if it’s blended with other things, but I can definitely imagine that just mixing it in water in a glass would be fairly distasteful. For those without a blender or for using it “on the road,” I would suggest mixing it in orange juice or apple juice and using some sort of shaker cup or container with a lid.Additional update: This stuff is awesome! I have started to blend it with a little coconut milk, a couple pieces of frozen bananas, a whole fresh banana, raw cacao and a little mesquite powder (adds sweetness and a caramel/malty flavor) and it is so good that I truly do crave it. Another fantastic combo is coconut milk, bananas, and frozen mangoes or really, any frozen berries and bananas is really good. I did try it in a shaker jar with just…

    Finally, a Protein Powder that WORKS WELL – Gluten Intolerant I have highly-sensitive gluten-intolerance. Other protein powders I’ve tried gave me gluten reactions which include intense body aches and horrible digestive, gastro-intestinal problems.Garden of Life works beautifully for me — it fills me AND satisfies me, gives me energy, and I have no reactions or GI issues with it at all.I especially appreciate Raw Protein if I am traveling and cannot find anything safe to eat. By always having the powder on hand along with some gluten-free fruit or vegetable juice, I’m covered.The powder is also helpful if I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to prepare a full, gluten-free meal (which can be very time consuming since I try to stick to whole foods only).Also, a little powder mixed with juice is a nice pick-me-up between meals, especially in the late afternoon or early evening — you know that time of day when you’re not ready to eat dinner (or too tired after working to cook), yet you’re hungry NOW? I don’t know about you, but snacking between meals is when I have the greatest tendency to overeat.Because the powder is so nutritionally balanced, it satisfies me and gets me through to a light dinner MUCH easier than if I were reaching for other foods.So far, I’ve enjoyed mixing it in a Vita-Mix with a little ice, pineapple and/or banana. Frozen banana works particularly well. If I’m not making a smoothie, I use an Aerolatte Moo frother to mix it right in the glass or cup (Bodum also makes a frother that is supposed to be excellent).Today for lunch, I mixed it into organic, gluten-free tomato soup, and I really enjoyed it. I’ve even mixed the powder with coffee!Flavor: I don’t really detect much “flavor” at all. It tastes neutral and takes on the flavor of whatever you mix with it. The texture, however, could be better. It has a mouth feel that’s just a little like mixing flour with water (note: NO flour is in this, it is completely gluten-free – I’m just using “flour” to describe how it feels in your mouth). Like I said, it feels that way “just a little” — for me, it’s a minor thing.Raw Protein is a wonderful blessing. It makes me feel good when I drink it — it fills me and gives me a sense of well-being that I’m not getting from most foods right now, perhaps due to my still having problems with my body properly assimilating everything I eat. If you have gluten-intolerance, you probably know what I mean: it’s that satisfied, clean (meaning no GI issues to worry about)feeling.I am very, VERY happy to have found this product.Two sidenotes:1- I wish it were available on Amazon.com with PRIME shipping. If it were, I’d buy it here rather than elsewhere.2- Garden of Life should ask the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America to certify their product as gluten-free. More and more celiac and gluten-intolerant folks want to but products that are less that 10 gluten parts-per-million. This product probably is, or I would react to it, so the company might as well get the certification. For me, certification is the gluten-free gold standard for what-to-buy.
