A little sweet .. be careful what you mix with it.

Posted by 5224401043658442435 on Oct 27, 2015

For the first smoothie I tried to make with this, I used a banana, a little coconut water, a handful of greens and an extra scoop of green mix with 2 scoops of Jarrows Plant Protein - it was so sweet I couldn't drink it. I had to throw it out. For the 2nd one, I just used water, 1.5 scoops Jarrows protein, a handful of greens & scoop of green mix, with a few frozen blueberries. Was better and drinkable, but still quite sweet.

Very bad taste/texture

Posted by Ophelia on May 25, 2015

Nice composition of natural ingredients, but this powder tastes awful. At the beginning I was seduced by all the plant components listed, and usually I can handle bad taste for the sake of healthiness, but this is just not working for me. I guess the proteins are doing their work well when I take them before/after exercising, because I watch closely my energy levels and weight, but I still think that taking your protein shake has to be a moment of pleasure, not of disgust ;) The texture is more like sand in mouth, and impossible to mask it (tried mixing it with smoothies, chocolate soy drink, yoghurt, ect). Another bad point is the Arginine/Lysine ratio, which can lead to Herpes breakouts if you already suffer from it (more Lysine, and less Arginine).
