Sun Warrior: Protein powder Raw Vegan Natural review

Post Type

I was looking for a way to increase my protein intake and I heard that SunWarrior was a great vegan protein powder brand. This was my first natural (unflavoured) vegan protein I tried and I have to say I just wasn’t ready for it…..

While a million reviews tell you that this tasted great – I have to be honest and say that it’s anything but. The taste is very earthy (think dirt) and the appearance isn’t far off either. Texture wise, it’s gritty and coarse, and I have trouble eating it! I guess I shouldn’t have bought 2 1kg bags without trying it first…

If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen my ‘dirt’ shake and my ‘dirt’ pancakes – and here ladies and gentleman we have  the culprit.

Looks can be deceiving….

There is no way that I can disguise the taste of this powder and believe me I have tried. Copious amounts of agave syrup, some peanut butter, cacao powder – none of these have made the taste any better.

I will however have to endure this – did I mention I have 2 kgs of it in my cupboard?? – and if I manage to make something decent flavour wise, you’ll be the first to know.

  1. Bought the natural flavoured one also cause im trying to stay away from xanthan gum which is present in the chocolate and vanilla flavoured ones.

    And I 100000000% agree with your descripton of the taste. It is undrinkable with just water.
    So I add some mixed frozen berries and half a banana and it goes down super good.

    Hope this helps other people that also bought dirt.
