I’m really not a big fan of protein powder of any kind. I believe in eating clean (salad, vegetables, nuts, seeds, some fruit, a little starch, no sugar, lots of water) and training dirty. Yes I sweat a lot and when I’m in the gym ; I’m in the zone! I don’t eat meat so when I work out with my trainer I try to consume three boiled eggs at least an hour and a half before my work out. I find that it gives me enough energy to handle a tough workout and I very rarely get light headed. The thought of a plant based protein powder was very appealing to me. So when I was asked to take part in this Manitoba Harvest Hemp Pro70 review (nod to Fit Approach, I’m a Sweat Pink Ambassador) I was a little hesitant yet somewhat excited to give it a try. So here goes!!
According to the sample packages received the ingredients are as follows:
- Hemp protein concentrate
- Organic coconut sugar
- Organic fair trade cocoa powder
- Natural plant extracts
It’s NON GMO and proudly Canadian! All great things wouldn’t you agree? Now to create a memorable smoothie!
My Hemp Pro70 Plant Based Protein – Spinach Smoothie
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 banana
- 1 cup spinach
- Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon homemade nut butter
- 15 g chocolate (or vanilla) Hemp Pro70 plant based protein powder
- 4 ice cubes
Blend and enjoy the heavenly goodness! You’ll find that it’s creamy, light, easy to digest and full of flavor. I felt full for a longer period of time and think that it’s safe to say that this may be my new go to for protein on my heavy workout days!
