Review – Sunwarrior Classic Plus – Organic, Raw, Plant-Based Protein in Chocolate and Vanilla Flavors

Protein powders are wonderful for boosting your protein intake, especially if you eat a plant-based diet. I’ve tried many protein powders and use them every week for smoothies, so I was happy to recently sample the new Sunwarrior Classic Plus Organic, Raw, Plant-Based Protein in both Chocolate and Vanilla flavors.

The Sunwarrior Classic Plus powder builds on Sunwarrior’s original rice protein recipe by adding in peas, chia seeds, quinoa, and amaranth to create a perfectly balanced amino acid profile. It is also raw, which is awesome since raw foods tend to contain more nutrients than cooked ones. Plus, this protein powder is organic and free of fillers, chemicals, whey, soy, gluten, and artificial ingredients.

I am a huge chocolate fan and will take that flavor over vanilla any day, but I actually liked the way that the vanilla protein powder tasted when I shook it with some soy milk, and then let it rest in the fridge for an hour.

One packet of this protein powder contains 17 grams of protein, zero grams of sugar, and 25% of your DV of iron. I blended the chocolate protein powder with soy milk, half of a banana, and one cup of frozen strawberries.

The chocolate flavor blends well with banana and strawberry. My only complaint is that I wish it had a more intense chocolate flavor. I ended up liking the vanilla flavor more.

My first sip of this smoothie was OK, but it was really good after I let it sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Then, it was more like a thick and creamy strawberry milkshake with a slight chocolate taste.

Though the milkshake was good, I think this protein powder works best if you shake it with some nut milk or soy milk in a shaker cup.

Interested in getting some of your own? You can purchase Sunwarrior Classic Plus protein via their website. I make a small portion of sales as an affiliate for Sunwarrior, so please support me and purchase via this link, rather than in a store, if you are going to buy it. Thank you 😀

Have you tried the protein powders from Sunwarrior? How do you use them?
