Protein Powder Reviews

Hi guys! I’m currently catching up on last nights episode of Big Little Lies while eating a smoothie bowl/protein icecream. Anyone else obsessed with this show? I can’t get enough of it- I love the whole vibe of how they shot it, its just so different than anything else on tv.

Anyways, I realized I haven’t done a review on what protein powders I like/what I use so I figured I’d go ahead and do that now since I’ve gotten a few questions after posting a pic to my insta-story.

I’m not going to go too in depth bc I know most people skim over it if theres too much text. I totally nerd out on all things health related though so if you have any questions regarding a specific product feel free to ask me 🙂

 

 

Vegan Proteins:

VegaOne is pretty much the master in this category. My favorite flavors are (in order)

  • All-in-One Protein flavor Coconut-Almond
  • Protein Smoothie in flavor Vanilla
  • Protein Smoothie in flavor Berry

Protein Isolates:

This is good for people who are lactose intolerant but don’t necessarily want a vegan protein

  • ISO100 in flavor Gourmet Vanilla
  • Slap Nutrition Protein in flavor Peanut Butter
  • ISO100 in flavor Birthday Cake
  • HydroWhey in flavor Turbo Chocolate

** Flavor not to try in ISO100 line is the Cookies n’ Cream… NOT GOOD!**

 

Whey/Casein Proteins:

I unfortunately cannot have these because my body can’t digest Casein/Whey very well so it makes my heart race. However, for those that are not at all dairy-sensitive, these are by far the BEST proteins in terms of taste and consistency in my opinion. I have tried some of them (before realizing it was what was causing my heart palpitations) and these are the ones I can recommend.

  • PEScience Select Protein in flavor Snickerdoodle — Seriously tastes AMAZING
  • PEScience Select Protein Gourmet Vanilla flavor
  • Quest Protein in flavor Peanut Butter (really good to bake with)


Okay so now here is how I make my protein ice-cream/shakes/smoothies –depending on which protein I use determines the consistency of it

**the casein blends will give you a thicker consistency than the others and will make it a thicker “ice-cream” the isolate will make it more of shake consistency, and the vegan protein makes more of a smoothie bowl consistency**

  • 1 Scoop Protein Powder of choice
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2-3 cups ice
  • Stevia (or other sweetener) to taste
  • Pinch of salt

Blend Blend Blend… depending on what blender you’re using you may have to tweak the recipe just slightly.

 

Hope you enjoy!

 

xoxo, Abby

  1. Super yum! I have tried a variety of protein powders and really love the bone broth kind by Dr. Axe! That stuff is amazing in taste and crazy powerful! I’m also intolerant to whey so I have tried Vega in the past and also took Rawfusion for awhile!

  2. Whoa, I had no idea there was a snickerdoodle flavor out there, so thanks for putting that on my radar! There are so many protein powders and they can get pricey to just try them out, so I’m glad you wrote a review, thanks for posting!

    • So glad you found it helpful! The Snickerdoodle flavor is to-die-for…. I was actually distraught when I realized I couldn’t have it anymore. Crossing my fingers for someone else to create a Snickerdoodle Whey Isolate!
