      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.

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

        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 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 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.

                                            I love this product I do not like to make drinks that are so sweet but this one has a perfect taste if you want it sweet well just add vanilla almond milk and it will give it a beautiful taste. I try the vanilla protein and did not like it because it had the stevia taste in it and its too sweet for me. However I will will recommend to buy this one because you always have the option to make it sweet. I also like the chocolate one but I can still taste the stevia taste in it and I just cant stand that taste but it taste really good.

                                            I feel like I dont have time to eat... when I do I get very sluggish... I have been using this product well over a year. It does not taste good at all but have to remind your self what it is... GOOD STUFF.. GOOD FOR YOU.. I make a huge 'Shaker' full and drink through a HUGE straw ALL DAY LONG.. I do add a bit of Splenda... I stopped drinking it for a while and felt BAD... then it dawned on me IT WORKS!!! I recomend this product not only for those who need/want afood supliment but just feel good. I actually started to miss the unusual taste after a while....

                                              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!

                                                Love the ingredients & the nutritional profile, but this powder makes my smoothie feel like I've put ground up chalk in it. The taste is bland, but the texture is so gross. I'm going to use the whole container because it's too expensive to toss, but never again.

                                                    Couldn't find a whey protein that didn't contain isolate (which I'm reading, that the body doesn't like or use well) but complete whey protein, so we tried this. Could taste powdery if you use more than a scoop for 16oz, but I LOVE that it's raw and complete. We do NRT and our body says YES for the WHOLE family!! My kids gladly drink shakes with this and I know they are getting the protein they need to grow.

                                                        Love this stuff! After work outs in the 'window' of time where your body is looking for fuel, I'm using Raw Protein. It's easy on digestion and the protein is readily available. Today I put a scoop in almond milk with a frozen banana and blended - delicious!

                                                        This has been sitting in my cupboard for a year now because I can't get past the earthy taste. Looking at all these other positive reviews, however, makes me want to give it another go round (especially as my daughter and I are transitioning to a vegan diet and whey is no longer an option). We normally have smoothies every morning with kale, banana, berries, flax, chia seeds, a smidge of maca, and mostly water (sometimes with a little soy or almond milk) and pea protein powder.

                                                            Use this supplement to BOOST an already healthy raw diet. I am a bodybuilder and i use this as my protein! And trust me, i have tried all kinds of protein and this is the best in the market for the price. 99% of all other whey proteins are dead and filled with toxic chemicals even if they call it natural. This protein is true integrity because it is ALIVE and the enzymes are still active. Pasteurized means &#34;All enzyme activity has ceased&#34;. And enzymes are &#34;complex proteins&#34;. So if the enzymes are dead, it takes your life-force to turn that dead protein around and make it living. It will surely cost you energy to do that. You don't have to be a bodybuilder to take it, but if you are it is good for your workouts. Your health is worth it! Try this. Get most of for protein from raw food and use this on top of that. Here's how i make my smoothie. (-Raw Milk-Frozen Bannana-One scoop of RAW Protein)Try making your own recipe.Give it a try, it is a great price!

                                                                A coworker of mine, who is very health conscience, suggested that I have a shake for breakfast instead of a meal. So I began my search for a good protein powder. A naturalist nutritionist in my area recommended a plant-based instead of soy-based or dairy-based protein and I found Raw Protein. I blend together a scoopful of powder, a cup of blueberries, half a banana, a little bran and 1/2 a cup of oats, a hand full of baby spinach, some water and I am good to go! It comes out nice and smooth and tastes great. I have my shake around 7:45 and I have lots of energy until lunch time, around noon. I work with kids and I have to pick them up from and drop them off at their classrooms, going up and down several flights of stairs before lunch, but my energy level doesn't seem to fall. I am very happy with the product.

                                                                I have been using RP for about a year and I really feel a difference when I have it. My diet is on the vegan side so I need the protein and other nutrition this has to offer. I have tried others but this is the best for me and it's raw.

                                                                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!

                                                                Why is this natural wholesome product "Not intended for children"?

                                                                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...

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!!

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: 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?

                                                                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 -

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,

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

                                                                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.
