    I use Garden of Life Raw Protein (all flavors) in our morning protein smoothies and LOVE it! Less chalky than other brands and has more flavor, plus made from RAW sources. Also love that it is vegan as my daughter is lactose intolerant. The person who said this flavor tastes awful obvious doesn't know how to mix it. We use it with vanilla almond milk and frozen bananas in the blender and it tastes great!

    I should have listened to the cashier on this one. He tried to warn me. I mixed it with Almond milk in a blender bottle. I couldn't get it down. I had to spit it out. It really was awful. Very gritty and didn't really taste like vanilla chai at all. I was hoping it would replicate the taste of the premixed Svelte vanilla chai (I know the nutrition isn't the same, but at least I could not only swallow, but enjoy the svelte). FitMiss has a vanilla chai powder that is much better tasting than this as well.
    Thank heaven for the Vitamin Shoppe return policy. This is going back.

    Comments about Garden of Life Raw Meal Mini - 17.4 Ounces Powder:

    This is truly the most worthwhile product I've ever used.Not only is it delicious, it fills my needs for most anything else. The fact that it is organic is just a big plus! It contains unadulterated vitamins, minerals, huge amounts of protein, fiber, probiotics etc etc. Etc. Look at the label. It's so extensive you'll be amazed. It has given me energy like nothing else has. It gives me peace of mind. Whoever put this Raw Meal together really Did their homework and knew what they were doing. I'm very thankful for it. It gave me my life back , also saves me money.I don't have to purchase all those separate items like I used to. All I can say now is PLEASE TRY IT AND NEVER LOOK BACK. Thank you for reading all this. God bless you!

          I use a scoop of the Raw Meal in the blender with 2-3 bananas and 2 cups of water. Fastest smoothie ever. Tastes great. I actually like the texture and think it adds to the natural feel of the product. Have repurchased several times. Makes a nice addition to my plant-based protein rotation.

          I have mixed this with almond milk and just plain water. The taste/flavor is great but, it is gritty. No matter what its blended with. I use fruit and veggies. It doesnt matter it stays gritty. If that one thing could be fixed it would be my favorite.

                  Comments about Garden of Life Raw Meal Mini - 17.4 Ounces Powder:

                  You know what? I went to the Vitamin Shoppe here in my city of Newport News. The cashier looked at me and asked, "have you had this before?" I responded with a no. He immediately got a smirk on his face and proceeded to tell me how interesting the taste was. I suppose this was a warning, I don't know. Anyway, I think this shake is pretty darn tasty. My fiancé and I both liked it. We mixed one scoop with unsweetened, original almond milk and a frozen banana. If anyone has had vanilla Shakeology, the taste is similar, but in my opinion the raw meal tastes better than vanilla Shakeology, I was a Shakeology drinker for 3 years and I hunk I'm now going to switch over to raw meal. Don't let anyone tell you this tastes gross. It's delicious, we drank it at 9 and it's noon right now and we're just now starting to get hungry. It gave me plenty of energy for my jog as well. Love it.

                    This is supposed to taste like Vanilla Spiced Chai but is more like Vanilla Berry Smoothie. Very disappointed in the flavor as I like vanilla & chai. If you like vanilla & berry smoothie you will probably like this but don't get it if you think it will taste like the name says!

                      I'm an active person and lactose intolerant, I wanted to find a dairy free protein other than soy. One of the guys in the store recommended this, along with a couple other plant based proteins. I love chai anything, so the flavor caught my attention. While it doesn't taste exactly like vanilla chai, it does have that sweet-spice taste. I've had it mixed with both soy milk and water, and either way it tastes good and fills you up. Very satisfying taste and feeling. Will buy again!

                          I literally almost threw the drink away at my first sip. I have had veggie-based drinks before, and this one was simply gagging. I sucked it down, but I think you HAVE to mix it with something else other than just water because I absolutely could not stand the flavor and after-taste of this drink. It did make me feel full though, which is the only redeeming thing about the drink.

                          I love Chai everything...until now. This product is really good for you and it tastes like it. Gack! Drink fast because it gets thicker and thicker. I made the "meal" serving and had to add more water to thin it out since I couldn't drink it fast enough. It fills you up with goodness but don't expect a great chai flavor.

                                The information provided under the "Supplemental Facts" tab is incorrect. It states that there are no added vitamins and minerals when in fact a one-scoop serving includes 50% of just about everything, including, to my regret, iron. Too much iron can be a particular problem for men, who typically get plenty from their diet. I would not have purchased this product had I known it had added iron. (I had unfortunately relied on The Vitamin Shoppe to get something as straightforward as that correct.) Aside from the iron, I generally try to avoid products like this as I already take a multi-vitamin and don't need more. I will use up this tub slowly over time, but will never buy it again.

                                I'm very excited that I found this product. Just got it in the mail tonight and I whipped up my first drink...coconut milk, cinnamon, honey, blackberries, strawberries and then the chai powder. I thought that it tasted fantastic. I can definitely taste the chai influence in there. Most of all I'm happy to find a protein powder that isn't soy or whey based (or filled with terrible ingredients). I'm new to the brand and new to sprout based proteins. I think it's going to be a while before I will buy more (it's a decent sized container) but I will repurchase again when the time comes. As a 23 year old female I'm not using this product for weight loss, but more so as a nutritious organic meal on the go or to fill me up after weight training and cardio.

                                Tired this brand for the first time and I was pretty impressed. I first tried the powder with just almond milk, and it was ok. I managed to drink it, but it didn't taste great, it was very powdery. The next morning I tried it with a banana and some coconut water and it was great, very enjoyable. The plain flavor doesn't really resemble chai at all, more like a vanilla. What I liked the most is it kept me full for hours and I only used the smaller serving size (1/2 the scoop). It says this is a "snack" serving, but especially if you add fruit, I think its more than enough. Perhaps if you are a full grown man, you need the entire serving for a meal. Also you really need a blender to mix it properly.

                                This is great for a healthy quick meal or snack. It fills me up and the vanilla chai is my favorite flavor.

                                I experience this "raw meal" as an ample and nourishing snack (partial serving). But I also add a salad to make it more of a meal (for me).

                                Does this keep you full ? Which flavors taste the best?
                                A Vitamin Shoppe customer on May 5, 2014
                                Best Answer: I have Raw Meal 2x/day. My flavor of choice is chocolate cacao. When I'm wanting to mix w/berries, bananas, almond butter, I use vanilla spiced chai. If you're a fan of chai, I think you'll enjoy it.
                                In terms of keeping you full, it's going to depend on how you make your shake. I blend w/almond milk,water, coconut water, flax & chia, fresh spinach & kale and sometimes half banana. For a caffeine kick, I add ground, instant espresso (freshly brewed espresso would be even better).
                                Hope this helps. Enjoy!

                                Is it ok for children to have this? Also, my 7 year old is allergic to nuts, soy, dairy (milk) and eggs. Just want to verify that it is free of those allergens.
                                Thanks so much.

                                Best Answer: The webpage displayed for Raw Meal Mini - Vanilla Spiced Chai states the product is vegan, which means it is free of animal products such as dairy and eggs. The product is also listed as "soy free," meaning that it does not contain soy or soy derived ingredients.

                                Nonetheless, for serious inquiries such as consumption and allergies (nuts and the above) you absolutely should contact the manufacturer directly and not anyone else before you make the final decision.
