    I make a smoothie every morning with 1 scoop of Raw Protein, 1 cup soymilk/almond milk, and then add 1/2 a banana, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 cup of frozen mixed berries, 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed, ice and water. It tastes good and I look forward to eating it every morning! I started eating the smoothies 1-2 times per day to help with weight loss, and to help with blood sugar levels. In 12 weeks I have lost 15 pounds and my cholesterol level went from 189 to 156!

    I am a big fan of Garden of Life and think Jordan Rubin is an amazing person. That said, this was the most foul-smelling, unpalatable protein powder I have ever tried. The smell was so offensive, no matter what we mixed it with, that we ultimately had to get rid of it. I will continue to try other GOL products, but this one was a very expensive disappointment.

          This does not taste good. However, any clean, unprocessed, sugar free protein powder will taste bad. I just deal with it and swallow it like a shot to get it over with. The results are amazing - beautiful lean muscles and I'm healthier than ever. So for the results, the bad taste is definitely worth it. Remember, if it was easy, everybody would be doing it.

              I really, really wanted to love this product, but upon mixing it up and trying to get it down, I just couldn't stomach it. It was very gritty and just tasted horrible. I am usually pretty good at making myself eat or drink something if I know it is beneficial to me, but this I just couldn't handle. Returned it to the store :(

                    Comments about Garden of Life Raw Protein - 622 Grams Powder:

                    Okay, I see a lot of reviews on here complaining about the chalkiness & lack of flavor. I used to drink whey every day when I was lifting and I do admit, it tasted great. For some reason after a while I developed an allergy to it and would break out all over my legs and sometimes arms. As soon as I stopped, the rashes went away, so I started looking for an alternative. I've tried all the flavors and chocolate is definitely the best. I don't know what people are talking about not being able to mask the taste? I literally only use 8-12 oz of light vanilla soymilk and 1 full serving of this and it tastes great! Yes, it's a bit grainy, but it really doesn't bother me. When I add a tbsp of peanut butter, it's even better AND when I've added it to full on smoothies, it's absolutely wonderful. If you're so concerned about the taste add some chocolate syrup and that should fix it up :) This stuff is great, good for you, and easy to digest (and affordable!).

                      It's a great product and does not taste good. But in my opinion, it's not supposed to taste good anyway.
                      I exercise and run about 6 days a week and sometimes twice in one day. I'm a girl and my goal is NOT to gain muscles, that's why I don't go for other types of proteins and chose this raw one instead. As I run, I do feel a difference between when I drink it and when I don't. I love using a scoop of raw protein with coconut milk and banana before my workout , but I don't suggest adding too much because the taste is very strong . Or I simply mix one scoop with water after my workout, and I won't be hungry until after 1 hour or two . Reccomend it

                        I'm rating this middle of the road. I've mainly drank SlimFast as a meal replacement. I usually doctored my SlimFast with a probiotic, flaxseed and PB2. I was recently introduced to Shakeology but just see paying $130/mth. After doing a lot of research I opted for Raw Protein because it was rated (by several people) to be a close comparison without the outrageous cost. Honestly, I'm not a fan. The chocolate flavor is very mild so I feel like I'm just drinking a cup of vitamins. I drink as a meal replacement and it barely gets me through my 2 hr window. I'm also not sold on the probiotics that are in it. I took Ultra Flora because it is the one I have found works for me as far as digestive issues/regularity. Since Raw had probiotics in it, I stopped the Ultra Flora and seems to be having more issues of irregularity now. I will definitely be looking for an alternative as soon as this container is gone, and go back to my Ultra Flora.

                          My skin and body have improved immensely since incorporating a green smoothie for breakfast daily. I am not hungry in the morning and have forced this upon myself every morning at 6am. I have plenty of energy and am not starving at lunchtime. I have lost 20lbs and my skin is clear.
                          I switch it up a bit, but here is the basic recipe: 16 oz filtered water, 3 oz baby spinach/kale, 1 Tbls ground flaxseed, 1/2 scoop unflavored protein powder, 1/2 cucumber, 1 celery stalk, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 cup frozen mixed berries, 1/4 of a lemon (juiced), and a small clipping of cilantro. Blend with my Ninja- wish I could afford a Vitamix.
                          I split this with my husband. Sounds like a lot but it takes 5 minutes max.

                            I recently found out that Stevia is equivalent to ragweed. So, me being allergic to ragweed, cannot drink or eat anything with Stevia in it. Unfortunately for me, most protein shakes have Stevia in them to make them sweet without the added sugar or calories. This was the only protein shake I could find that was dairy free, Stevia free, gluten free, egg free, and soy free. The taste is a bit gritty, but that doesn't bother me as most protein shakes are. I use two bananas to sweeten it up and water. It tastes great considering. I drink this every morning for breakfast and it gives me a great boost, which is much needed since I'm a mom of two little boys. You can't beat the price on VitaminShoppe either! I'm a lifer.

                                The product is very gritty, and has a bitter after taste.

                                The texture is VERY gritty. The taste is terrible. The smell is not good. Overall, I would like to return the product, but since that would be more hassle than it is worth, I may throw it away. I have tried it in frozen smoothies. The texture and taste is terrible. My 8 and 9 year olds agree. I wish I had more positive information, but I would NOT recommend this product.

                                  This was my second attempt at trying protein and its a winner. I like the fact that its flavor free to I can add it to any type of smoothie I like with no artificial taste.

                                    This stuff is the best! Tastes awesome! People seem to think protein is supposed to taste like a milkshake with creamy consistency...this is protein, not a milk shake....
                                    If it want tons of fat, carbs and calories, drink muscle milk. They have the fattening milk shake taste down.
                                    For a good RAW protein, this is the best I've had so far. I mix it with almond milk, put it in smoothies, and my favorite is mixing it with strawberry honey greek yogurt...seriously the best thing in the world. Ive tried a Sun Warrior and i had to try and choke it down, but couldn't after about 3 days. This stuff, i drink twice a day. I have the chocolate one, I have never had the vanilla so i only speak for the chocolate! If you want a milkshake, look elsewhere, if you can appreciate the good taste of a natural protein than BUY THIS!

                                      I got this on the recommendation of a personal trainer acquaintance. She swears by this. I have only used it in a smoothie, but she uses in other things, like waffles. This is used instead of flour. I haven't tried it this way, but plan to use it in power bars, and I'll try her waffle recipe. I did not love the texture of it in a smoothie, as it seemed a bit grainy. I purchased the unflavored, since I do not care for the aftertaste of sugar substitutes, no matter what kind. This is a vegan product, which is what appeals to my friend.

                                        Great for a morning shake with add my own ingredients. Flavorless and mixes well. Great for the no dairy and no wheat option. If you want a stand on it's own shake, you may miss flavor but that's another choice.

                                          I love all of the vitamins and ingredients in this product! At first, I was putting it in the juice I was making in the morning. However, it made it a little too thick for me to drink since I leave the pulp in the juice as well. What works best for me is to blend a scoop with a little bit of milk, It doesn't taste great, but it's not bad and it certainly serves the purpose I chose this product for! LOVE IT

                                            I make a smoothie every morning with this product in my nutribullet: 2 T protein powder, 2 T ground flax seeds, 1/2 c frozen mixed berries, 1/2 cup frozen banana slices, 1 c unsweetened chilled vanilla almond milk. If I have chilled aloe vera juice, I'll add 1/2 cup of that too. It keeps me full from 6:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. I feel alert, energetic and no need for coffee or any snacks during the morning. I haven't tried the vanilla, chocolate or chai but will try in the future. There is absolutely no comparison to other brown rice protein powders. This is the only one for me. My daughter loves it too! It has helped me to lose 15 pounds since ringing in 2014.

                                            This product is not good when you just use a shaker. The stevia has an odd aftertaste. But when you blend with ice, frozen banana and soy/almond milk, it tastes wonderful. I use the Vanilla Chai flavour. It is tasty, it is extremely good for you, and it is very filling. I have this smoothie blend for breakfast. Since I started using it, my digestion has improved significantly.

                                              I have been using this almost every day, as a light breakfast or a snack. At first I did not like the texture, but now I am used to it. There is a noticeable boost to my energy levels on the days when I drink this. I like to drink it with about 8 - 10 oz. of orange juice or almond milk.

                                                Absolutely love this product! For optimum flavor and taste, I put it in the blender with ice, vanilla almond milk and a banana. I tried using it in the shaker bottle with the ball but it was just too chalky. Only after using it for one week, I can feel the change it has made in my body and my mind.

                                                  This plant-based protein powder punches a lot of protein and is great to add to veggie and fruit shakes. The only downfall would be the chalky taste. Due to the chalky taste, I can't use it in one of those shake containers that has the round whisk in it. It's fine with a blender though.

                                                    I really like this product and I am purchasing it again. I always drink this after my workout for the protein content. It's a 'feel good' drink. The taste though leaves something to be desired. I think it tastes like drinking chalk. I just chug through it and get it down. The taste hasn't stopped me yet though and I will continue to drink this. I'm kind of lazy so I haven't tried mixing it with anything which would probably help in the taste. Either way though, it's a great product. I might try it in chocolate to see if that makes a difference.

                                                    If you search for just "Raw Protein" you won't get the flavors it also comes in. That happened to me. The original tastes so bad I could not drink it. I was able to return it and I got the Raw Protein Vanilla. Still not crazy about the taste but at least I can drink it! It's supposed to be a good product. I haven't had it enough yet to see any noticeable changes. Not to me anyway.

                                                        I've been using this stuff for a while. To each his own, but this stuff is pretty chalky going down and and has sort of a burnt after taste. Nothing I've been able to mix with it can cover it up.

                                                        The ingredients in this protein mix are excellent and my body seems to utilize it very well in the morning. I tried to keep my calories down and only blend it with water and ice. Does not blend well at all in water alone and the taste was not that great by itself. So I decided to put it in almond milk with some frozen fruit and it was better. When I went out of town for travel, I noticed the mornings my brain was not at sharp nor my energy level either. It's pricey, but I have not found anything that my body uses as well.

                                                        This product meets my dietary needs and preferences. It is gently digestible and supplements my protein needs that are often lacking in my daily meals. I strongly recommend this product.

                                                        Why is this natural wholesome product "Not intended for children"?
                                                        A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Feb 12, 2014
                                                        Best Answer: I cannot tell you with certainty, but here are some possilbe reasons: (1) The scoop provides certain vitamins at dosage levels that are fine for an adult but would cause harm to an infant. Certain vitmanis are lethal if you take beyond a certain amount and the dosage varies. (2) The scoop provides more protein than advisable for a child (I'm not 100% sure that this is the case). (3) The company does not want any liability.

                                                        Children's bodies are distinctly different from adults with different body chemistry and notable differences in body mass and weight. Just like you would not give a regular does of Tylenol to a child, you should not use dietary supplements meant for adults for children. While it is possible that they might suffer no harm from them, it is also possible to cause them irreparable harm. You are better off playing it safe especially since dietary supplements are NOT regulated by the FDA and there is no independent assurance of their safety. The company has already washed its hands off any liability by warning you not to use it on children; if you do so and your child is harmed then you have no one to blame but yourself...

                                                        Best Answer: Raw Protein does not have the chalky consistency that some powders do; it is smooth and quite pleasant tasting. I add it to smoothies. I have not experienced any difficulties with any of Garden of Life's products where upset stomach or bowels are concerned. Not even with their detox fiber.

                                                        Best Answer: No, this does not contain stevia. I add Stevia to my smoothie to make it sweet. This is a very "raw" tasting protein, with little flavor, and it's kind of "gritty" so you have to doctor it up with other flavors, like banana, etc. Hope this helps!

You can use it in any kind of smoothie. Here is a link to a recipe you can make with it. I use both this Raw Protein and Sun Warrior interchangeably!!

                                                        Best Answer: Not at all. I am very sensitive to getting constipated, and this doesn't affect me at all. It's very digestible.

                                                        Best Answer: Hi Tom,
                                                        I'm not vegan or vegetarian but I do feel that I need to supplement my breakfast with protein. I've tried several Protien products and Raw Protien seems to fit me the best. I add two tsp to my hot oatmeal every morning. It tastes good and it blends easily without masking the oatmeal flavor. I can tell it is working because I feel satisfied for about 4 hours. It's gluten free, soy free, dairy free and contains all natural products. I don't see why you can't give it to your children.

                                                        Your ingredients list alpha-tocopherol which is a SOY product. Soy is not organic, unless you have the pure soy.
                                                        Soy is a GMO. I am extremely sensitive to pesticides and react dramatically to soy products.
                                                        Is your soy the pure soy? If so, what country do you get it from?
                                                        thank you for supporting my efforts to stay healthy & alive.

                                                        Best Answer: Not sure what resource is advising alpha- tocopherol is from soy; because that is not the only source - it is from many different sources - in this case there is no soy in Garden of Life Raw Protein - Soy is not listed on the label as the source - And unfortunately - some products will mislead and advise that a product is organic - which does not mean non GMO - these 2 distinctions are not mutually exclusive. I too am chemical sensitive and chose this product for that reason. Have used for over 2 years. If still concerned - go to Garden of Life web site - to review and e-mail concerns. Have run a health food store for 16 years and am well educated in this area -

                                                        What does the original one taste like?

                                                        Best Answer: Not much taste at all. We like to mix it with a banana to give it flavor.

                                                        Are there any possible side effects that I should be aware of when using this product?

                                                        Best Answer: Note this is not a whey protein but a brown rice protein. This protein is very easy on the stomach and digestive system and does not have soy, dairy, nuts or other ingredients for sensitive systems. I chose to use it combined with fruit and or vegetables,

                                                        Does the origanal flavor have stevia in it? I'm looking for no stevia or artificial sweetners in it.

                                                        Best Answer: I don't have any now to answer this question, but I'm sure the supplement facts would state. As I remember, this was not sweet AT ALL, and I used to add stevia to it. But if you need to be 100% sure you should go on their website and ask them. Hope this helps! Laura

                                                        is this product, raw protein, good for weight loss?

                                                        Best Answer: I believe it is. I mix it in a fruit and vegetable smoothie in the morning and the protein helps keep me full for longer. It is also great right before you work out so you do not feel famished. Hope this helps!

                                                        I bought some Raw Protein in May 2013, opened it and used some. Have discovered it in my cabinet--is it still useable?

                                                        My wife is pregnant and I am shopping for a protein supplement. we are vegetarians. I heard that pregnant women should avoid sprouts, this product is largely made of sprouts. Does anyone know if this is safe for pregnant women? I know I can ask my physician, but I would like to hear from users.
