Totally healthy--but tastes AWFUL

I am very disappointed as this is SO healthy but it tastes so terrible I can't stand to drink it. I am not a "picky" person, have been a vegetarian for over 20 years, a vegan for 11, and have had many a bad vege health drinks. This is one of the worst! And I am quite tolerant of such things. I can't imagine anyone thinking this tastes good. I almost gag getting the last part of a glass down. Bummed.

To say that the taste is rather foul, sounds so harsh... But I would not recommend it for its "GREAT TASTE", that's for sure. Anyway if you do ingest this, DO NOT MAKE ANY PLANS. It's made of pea protein, so you are gonna do the reverse dragon routine... for hours.
YOU ARE WARNED!
Other than that, if social life means nada to you, I'm sure this is a great value deal!

I wasn't even able to get through one serve of this stuff. It was revolting. Firstly there were enormous chunks in it - I think they might have been fruit. Some of the powder didn't dissolve at all and settled at the bottom. The taste itself was so sickeningly sweet it was unbearable. I threw the rest in the compost bin. Total waste. Not recommended.
Great nutrient-rich protein powder full of goodies

Feels and tastes great with raw milk from the local farm and some stevia. I bought this for my partner and she liked it immediately. I went through the ingredients list and didn't catch anything alarming - mostly very good stuff and even the B-12 is as safe methylcobalamin and not as 100 times cheaper and quite controversial cyanocobalamin.
Skipping the childish taste issues, my only remaining concern was about pea protein isolate, knowing that soy and whey protein isolates are unsafe products that can mess up my stomach and cause all kinds of other problems like greatly increase urinary calcium loss. After some googling I figured about that nobody knows for sure and my body will surely complain if the isolated pea protein starts to harm me in some way. So until I get some unpleasant symptoms that can't be overlooked anymore, I will keep on enjoying this with all it's delicious crunchy bits that come with the shake.
Best protein powder ever!

This is the best protein powder I've ever had, even compared to whey protein. It mixes well and has the best taste of any product I've tried. The amino acid profile is excellent too. It's a life-saver for us vegans!
