Note: I consider myself super lucky to be able to participate in the Manitoba Harvest + Sweat Pink #HempProteinSmoothie Campaign! I was provided with the products seen below, I have since purchased a lot more… more on that below. Just keeping it real
I LOVE Manitoba Harvest! for so many reasons (being plant based/vegan/natural being the at the very top of the list…) and I’ve been consuming their hemp hearts and protein for years so yes I jumped at the opportunity to test out their new Hemp Protein Smoothie blends. I received a launch kit with Mixed Berry, Vanilla Chai, and Chocolate Hemp Protein Smoothie flavors and a very awesome Manitoba Harvest shaker cup.
Let me start with the CHOCOLATE! OMG yes! I love chocolate but not all chocolate protein smoothies live up to the chocolate name, this one does. The chocolate did not last very long and I have since ordered more, it is my new go to protein powder, replacing the old Manitoba Harvest Vanilla (the chocolate is always sold out at my local store so I usually go with Vanilla). Speaking of Vanilla… the Vanilla Chai flavor is pretty tasty, I like it with almond milk shaken up very well, it has a mild Chai flavor that adds a little more depth over regular Vanilla but isn’t too powerful… it’s another winner! (my other half really loved it – ordered more of this one too) Finally the Mixed berry… meh, not so much a favorite for me, although it was pretty good mixed in with frozen berries and almond milk. I just tend to like chocolate or vanilla in my shakes so I didn’t expect to love this one, or even really like it so, kinda a win? If you like berry flavored smoothies this is really good.
