Jarrow Formulas Optimal Plant Proteins – Vegan Protein Powder Review

Published October 4, 2012 by Vegan Derby Cat Party


Continuing on with this week’s VeganMofo mini-theme of high rawish posts, I want to tell you about a new addition to our green smoothies. We got gifted this tub of Jarrow Formulas Optimal Plant Protein powder from my pescetarian parents, who decided they really didn’t need it. After a quick inspection to confirm the vegan-ness of the ingredients, I agreed to take it home to try. I had only tried the Garden of Life raw vegan protein powder before, but it made me very nauseated just after drinking it, so I was a bit skeptical about this one.

Only good news to report here! I haven’t been making smoothies regularly anymore, but I still try for about once or twice a week. (Usually when I work the [half an hour] later shift at work, and have some extra time.) This has made a lovely addition. Not only does it agree with both of us, it lends a nice, sweet flavor to our drinks, and does not leave a gritty texture in its wake.


Here is my smoothie in the making. Mixed greens (kale, collards, mustard), blueberries, mango, banana, water, almond milk…


And with a just a little pineapple for extra sweetness… after! I love that purple color!


And ready to travel with us to work! 🙂

Do you have a favorite vegan protein powder?
