This is one of the best protein powders on the market! The ingredients are premium and there are no artificial sweeteners or fillers. It makes the perfect and nutritious smoothie and you can add just about anything to it. It mixes well and tastes great! If you're using it to manage calories it works well by itself: if you're trying to gain weight, simply add fruits and nuts and pretty much anything to it. It's delicious and nutritious!
I originally bought this because I was on a keto diet and the high protein meal powder is sugar free. The serving size is only one scoop unlike most others who call for 2 scoops. So you are getting about twice as many servings from the same size container. Also, as a protein MEAL rather than protein powder you are getting many more micro and macro nutrients.
This is an excellent product. Even better mixed with chocolate protein powder - not just normal protein powder but the one from Dr. Murray's: Dr. Murray's Super Foods 3 Seed Protein Powder. You can find it here on iHerb. TIP: This has zero fat and if you have it with a liquid with zero fat then you're not gonna absorb vitamins A, D, E & K which are fat soluble. So make sure you have some fat in there otherwise you're gonna waste those vitamins.
I'm not diabetic but I prefer to take it easy on sweets. It definitely tastes like plaster without anything added. I mix with soy milk and tart cherry extract and it tastes good enough. The thing I don't like is the packaging. The new can is too tall for most of my cabinet shelves and the scoop is often buried in powder.
Our family has used Natures Plus Spiru-tein for decades. It's always been a bit pricey (especially lately!) compared to other protein powders, but given its high-quality combination of ingredients, and fantastic assortment of flavors and varieties, well worth the cost if you can buy it on sale. It's great for making quick and creamy smoothies by simply adding a scoop to a blender with a banana, some OJ or milk, yogurt, and some ice and blending until smooth. Makes an awesome healthy, quick, and satisfying breakfast on the go! As we are all cutting back on our sugars now, we were excited to try this new "unsweetened" variety but were sad to discover it did not agree with any of us; made us all a bit gassy. We will finish this can, but won't be trying this one again. Minus one star for that, but no big loss. They offer plenty of other flavors and varieties to choose from. Just wish the price would come down!
