Disclaimer: I received free samples of Manitoba Harvest hemp protein powder in both vanilla and chocolate through my association with Fit Approach. All opinions are my own.
As a vegetarian, I often worry about my “cheats.” I eat eggs. I eat fish. I do not, however, eat drink cow’s milk. I often wonder about things like protein powders. Do they depend on ingredients I should worry about?
Enter Manitoba Harvest. They have a new HempPro 70 protein powder in chocolate and vanilla. I tried both with almond milk after mid-length runs and loved both. Previously, I have only been able to handle protein powders in smoothies. Both of my samples were put in a shaker and mixed with almond milk. No blender. No additional items. I wanted to get a good idea of the taste.
Before I tell you my specific findings, here is some information about HempPro 70. This information was provided by Manitoba Harvest.
- HempPro 70 is the only water soluble protein powder on the market.
- Pure, plant-based protein that is 95% digestible.
- Sweetened with organic coconut sugar.
- Protein and Omegas. Vanilla has 15g of protein. Chocolate has 14g of protein. Both are chalked full of Omegas.
Both flavors blended/shook up easily. I had no blender to have to clean after my run.The vanilla was goodbut the chocolate was yummy! I tend to lean towards chocolate and am very picky about the taste of my chocolate. Protein powders do not generally make the cut but this one does.
