I’m super excited to run this giveaway, because it’s with a good friend of mine! Danielle and I met while I was an intern at Hasbro back in the day. We’ve kept in touch over the years, and I’m so glad we did – we have a lot in common, especially when it comes to natural/organic living. Danielle is an Independent Rep for Miessence, an Australian-based company who believe in health, wellness, and living purely. When Danielle asked me to review their Complete Protein Powder, I was honored! I mean…
- Certified organic
- Sprouted and biofermented
The list goes on. I’ll be 100% honest up front and say that I am not a fan of protein powders, typically. I just never enjoyed the taste/aftertaste, so this is something pretty new for me. But hey… why not give it a try and give some away to an awesome reader who may LOVE the extra boost of protein? So here we are. Let’s do this.
I’ll admit, I was a little nervous to try this (from past experiences with protein powder) so I decided to kick it off with a smoothie. I did:
- 1 tbs Complete Protein Powder
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup fresh pineapple
- 1/2 cup cashew milk
- 1 tsp ginger
- 1 tsp flaxseed oil
First impression: Oh, there it is. I can taste it.
After a couple sips: Okay, this is not as strong as others. It has a slightly nutty taste to it, but it works well with the flavors I have going on in the smoothie. I really wasn’t sure what to expect as far as taste, but after the initial sip, it definitely got better. I really like how the taste is neutral, so that you can add it to… really, whatever the hell you want. As I was sipping down this one, I was already thinking about the next possible combo, like cacao, peanut butter, and banana.
We’re giving away quite a hefty bag, so you have room for lots and lots of combos.
Speaking honestly, would I always use protein powder in my morning smoothies? No, probably not. However, Miessence has proved to be a top contender for me, especially since I am so picky. If you are not a fan of a super strong protein powder taste, then I would highly recommend this brand.
