Powerootz blended shake

 

There are so many protein powders on the market. As a consumer, it’s really difficult to sort out the good ones from the junk filled options. Some of the choices are high in sugar, or they don’t contain the right amount of nutrients. When I got the opportunity to try Powerootz plant based protein shakes, I was thrilled to see that their shakes contain so many good things. It’s difficult to tell if a supplement like this will hold up to an in-person taste test. Powerootz delivered.

 

 

Raw, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, and Vegan

Powerootz is a pesticide-free raw pea protein isolate blend from Belgium. It also contains organic peanut flour that has only 12% of the fat that regular peanuts contain. There are no artificial ingredients in these shakes. The protein powders are raw, dairy free, gluten free, and vegan.

 

Each shake contains 19-23 grams protein and can be mixed with water or dairy-free milk of choice. Each serving also has 500mg of raw earth minerals along with 15 superfoods per serving. Powerootz shakes can be used as a meal replacement shake along with a balanced diet, but they do recommend blending in a banana or greens for additional nutrition.

Powerootz Is a Good Blended Shake

After trying each flavor available of Powerootz: Chocolate Peanut Butter Madness, Peanut Butter Bliss, and Cacao Mania, I have to say that I am impressed with the taste and consistency, overall. These shakes are very earthy, so if you prefer a more refined taste, you may find them outside of your norm. I found myself craving the Peanut Butter Bliss shake after I tried the packet they provided for the trial, and it was by far my favorite flavor. The powders mix well when blended, but they are a bit more grainy than I anticipated. Even when blended, they came out more milky on the bottom and grainy toward the top of the drink. The difference in texture was more noticeable after the shake sat for a few minutes. I would recommend drinking the shake right away. I would not recommend these shakes for use with a shaker cup, blended is best.

 

Despite the texture, the shakes had great flavor—just the right amount of salt and sweet. Adding banana or greens is very easy with this type of taste as a base. I can imagine the powders working well in protein pancake or cookie recipes. I really liked these shakes. You can order by the tub or there is a subscription option for monthly service.
