            I LOVE this protein powder. I was a collegiate athlete for four years and have tried a lot of different protein powders. This does not have the best flavor; it's not bad, it just has a slight chalky after-taste when mixed with water. I think it's well worth it if you can get used to something that doesn't taste like a milkshake. A lot of protein powders either bulk me up (I'm a tall girl with an athletic build) or don't seem to make a difference. I've been using this for almost 2 weeks and I've already lost weight, my pants are looser, & my muscle tone is more defined even after going on a weekend vacation. I also have a very active appetite and very few foods or protein powders help satisfy my hunger (plus, I have celiac's disease so I have to have gluten-free everything). This totally satisfies my appetite and it's only 90 calories. Like I said, I HIGHLY recommend this product if you can get over a very slight chalky after-taste and want to eat healthy and lose weight.

            I decided to try this product after trying "another" raw protein that was really expensive but tasted and worked great. I thought I would see if there is something comparable out there that I could afford. I am really disappointed with this. It was like drinking sand and it left my throat feeling scratchy. It separated after sitting only a couple of minutes and I just couldn't stomach drinking it. I never got a chance to see how it worked because it was awful. It tasted like chalk, not chocolate. I have tried many proteins over the years but this one is the worst. I sent it back and will try something else.

                  I tried this protein because I was trying to get away from animal based for a few weeks. It was chalky, it was gross tasting, would NOT recommend. They should just take this off the shelves.

                    I really love this protein! I add one-two scoops with 2 cups almond milk, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 tbsp PB2 or peanut butter and half of a banana and put it in a blender. You can also add ice to it. It gives me energy and keeps me full in between breakfast and lunch. It tastes great too! I will keep buying this product and I highly recommend it!

                          The nutritional value of this supplement is good but the taste was gritty and really needs a lot more coco in it. I guess I would call it bland. Don't know that I would buy it again.

                          I have to say that I was very hesitant to buying this product but I said what the heck, I need a protein powder. It was a nice sized bottle of the stuff with a scooper. It didn't smell too appetizing when I opened it but I tried it anyway. I took one scoop and mixed it with one tbsp. of peanut butter and blended it with almond milk and some ice. It was gritty like described, but very tolerable. It was sweet but not overly sweet and kept a pretty water consistency even with adding ice (I am going to add more next time). The only thing I will say is that it didn't taste so much like chocolate, as I thought it would. But I'm enjoying it.

                              Really awful. I'd honestly rather be fat than finish the container of this. I add water so maybe that makes a difference, but it's really like drinking watered down chalk. Moving on to another product trying Tera's Whey instead. Definitely never buying this again. Pure chalk!

                                            This protein is so good!!. I mixed it with some almond milk, bananna, and placed it in freezer for a while. Can you say"Awesome". Cant wait to try Vanilla.

                                                  one scoop every morning with coconut milk.
                                                  taste is too sweet for me but good protein source from raw veggies to help build muscles.

                                                        I simply put it in water. It tasts great. I am using it for its protein content. Have no complaints. It desolves nicely and will continue using it. Thanks Vitamin Sholppe.

                                                              I started using the protein for shakes in the morning. I use Vanilla Almond Milk, scoop of organic peanut butter, spoon of raw honey, and the taste is not bad. My 9 year old wanted to try some yesterday and he actually said it tasted good. I could get a lot of other protein powders that tasted better but none would give me what I get with this product. I am now a lifer. After just a week and a half of using the product I have lost 5 pounds and am starting to see my abs again.

                                                                I decided to try this product after trying "another" raw protein that was really expensive but tasted and worked great. I thought I would see if there is something comparable out there that I could afford. I am really disappointed with this. It was like drinking sand and it left my throat feeling scratchy. It separated after sitting only a couple of minutes and I just couldn't stomach drinking it. I never got a chance to see how it worked because it was awful. It tasted like chalk, not chocolate. I have tried many proteins over the years but this one is the worst. I sent it back and will try something else.

However, if you wait too long in between meals, your appetite will be greater. The trick is to eat small portions throughout the day in order to avoid your appetite from building up and becoming ferocious.

I make a smoothie out of it by adding 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup frozen organic fruit, 1/2 cup organic no fat/low fat yogurt, 1-2 tablespoons of organic flaxseed oil, and one cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk..throw it all in the blender with the protein powder added last. It replaces a meal for me and it is 4-6 hours before I'm hungry again. Instead of buying the 22 oz tub, it comes in packets so you can try it first. VS sells the individual packs as do other health food/grocery stores is there isn't a VS near you. It is a plant based protein so it has a different taste than some of the other protein products on the market. I've tried this product in water or juice and it did not go down easy for me. I need to make it into a smoothie to enjoy it. Also, not a strong chocolate flavor if that is why you picked this flavor over vanilla. I did not like the Chia flavor at all.

He has not tried this due to recovery from a health issue and has not ridden this winter.But for years used a protein drink and loved it. Sorry, I don't work out at all. I bought at the end of fall and find cold drinks difficult to consume in the winter. I will try it again should we ever get warm weather. I have a high need for protein and thought I would try this.

When I cut out all the allergen ingredients that was messing up my digestive system, I started gaining weight. This protein powder has none of the allergens that my body could not tolerate. Since I cut out all the allergen ingredients from my diet, I have gained 25 pounds.
