Taste is stinky
Posted by Reviewer1597547 on Apr 14, 2011
I bought this shake as I needed to do an elimination diet and the only shakes we had in the house were delicious whey, and I needed to omit dairy. I thought with all the great reviews about the taste that I would be ok choosing this product. I have tried: using filtered water and adding organic blueberries. : using unsweetened almond milk and adding almonds. : using organic peaches, stevia and cinnamon. No matter what I add to disguise the taste it still has a kind of stinky taste, kind of like a faint horse manure smell taste. LOL I know that sounds really bad but the is the closest I can come to describe it. So minus 3 stars for stinky taste but still keeping the 2 stars because of the nice low calories and low carbs and good 15 grams protein, and no soy! I will not be purchasing again. Oh the vanilla and the chocolate do not stink, just the acai flavor.

I am intolerant to gluten, dairy, eggs, sugar, and many other things, and I have Celiac. Therefore, it is hard for me to get protein without eating a lot of meat. In addition, 90% of all the other protein powders I looked at either had sugar, dairy, or gluten; and many of those remaining 10% have a terrible flavor. I literally almost threw up after drinking one of them. Then, I found this powder. At first, I thought it was disgusting. It is very grainy, or chalky, as another reviewer commented. However, when you compare it to other powders of this kind, this is a one of a kind product. The flavor is incredible, it's just the consistency that is hard to get used to. i got used to it in about a week. GREAT with any fruit juice... not good with water, tea, or lemonade.
Great flavor but texture not so good...

as the title states, there is a very distinct flavor in this powder, even when mixed with other fruits & berries as I make it. I use 1 scoop of Acai powder, 1 banana, 1 apple, 1 orange, scoop of frozen blueberries & a bunch of strawberries, & raspberries when I have them. All organic fruits, a splash of Aloe Vera juice, 1/2 cup orange/apple juice & either Milk or Natural yogurt(all ingredients Organic). the taste is great for sure with what ever I have it in but the texture, not great, the powder just doesn't dissolve at all, don't have it with just water or juice, its super gritty! Would be a fantastic drink if the powder just dissolved & left no grittiness.

I love this product. It is great when mixed with a banana, berries such as strawberries or blueberries and orange juice. Place all ingredients with the protein energizer into a blender and wow!!! Being a true vegan-I believe that this is a great product.

I usually purchase the vanilla and the chocolate protein drinks, so I was not sure how the Acai Berry would compare. Well, I love it. It has surpassed the vanilla in flavor and is tie with the chocolate. Great taste.

Good tasting. Mixed best in a blender than in a shaker

Best taste and consistency of all protein powders I've tried (I've tried a lot). And it's got loads of good stuff in it. Fantastic!!!
