Nutritional Information 30g: 107 Cal/ 1.5g Fat/ 0.8 Carbs/ 23g Protein
Flavor/Taste: I usually prefer protein with some kind of taste, however the vegan pea protein is really nice, subtle and creamy only mixed with water. No weird artificial taste.
Consistency: Perfectly creamy. No difference to its “Whey-competitors”. I have tried quite a few vegan proteins and this is by far my favorite.
Price: 13.99 EUR/ 1 kg
- Chocolate Banana Shake: 1 tablespoon oats, 1 small frozen banana, 1 teaspoon dark cocoa, 1 portion vegan Pea protein, 300 ml water
- Tropical Shake: 1 handful baby spinach, 100g frozen mango, 300 ml water, 1 portion vegan pea protein, half a frozen banana, 1 teaspoon spirulina
Nutritional Information 25g: 93 Cal/ 0.3g Fat/ 2.5g Carbs/ 23g Protein
Flavor/Taste: Very subtle taste and not too sweet. Not artificial at all. One of my new all time favorites.
Consistency: Lovely! Mixed in a blender just with water, it still gets extremely creamy. Add some ice cubes and it gets even more creamy. Yummy!
Price: 29.49 EUR/ 1 kg
- Enjoy it pure, mixed with water or milk.
- Add berries, banana, spinach or cocoa powder.
- Adding ice cubes or a tablespoon of oats or chia seeds makes it even more delicious.
- You cannot do wrong. It is delicious in every combination.
Nutritional Information 25g: 102 cal/ 1.8 g Fat/ 1,7g Carbs/ 20g Protein
Flavor/Taste: Interesting! It does taste like apple and slight vanilla. Not really my cup of coffee but i general not bad at all.
Consistency: Blends very well with water or milk.
Price: 1.49 EUR/ 25g
My recommendation: It is nice as a shake, however I think this one would fit perfectly with yogurt or curd and freshly cut apple.
Nutritional Information 25g: 103 Cals/ 1.9 Fats/ 1g Carbs/ 21g Protein
Flavor/Taste: Not too sweet. Could have a stronger chocolate taste. Good but not my favorite.
Consistency: Very nice with both, water or milk. Creamy consistency, when using a blender.
Price: 8.49 EUR/ 250g
My recommendation: Add a teaspoon of dark cocoa powder and ice cubes before blending for pure chocolate joy.
Nutritional Information 50g: 191 Cal/ 3.2g Fat/ 6g Carbs/ 34g Protein
Description: High quality proteins from egg, milk and whey. I was very excited to try this one, it was one of my top products I was curious about.
Flavor/Taste: Very sweet. Only a slight taste of chocolate.
Consistency: The recommended amount of 100- 150 ml milk/ water is a little too much. 80-100 ml is more than enough and still gets pretty liquid. However, baked in a pan it does get kind of fluffy.
Price: 5.99 EUR/ 200g
My recommendation: Mix a traditional pancake dough and exchange half the flour with the protein pancake mix. In this combination the product is not too sweet and tastes delicious and gives normal pancakes a protein boost.
MyVitamins Collagen Powder (Lemon & Lime)
Nutritional Information 23g: 73 Cal/ 0g Fats/ 0.3g Carbs/ 18g Protein
Description: Fruity taste, ideal for muscle growth and muscle maintenance and beneficial for the skin. This product is NOT SUITABLE FOR VEGETARIANS. In my opinion this should be better communicated on the website, because for me as a vegetarian it was a mispurchase.
Flavor/Taste: The lemon and lime is a little artificial. It is a fizzy drink which could be mixed into a smoothie or a tea and it blends in quite well. However, it has quite a salty taste, which I´m not the biggest fan of.
Consistency: Blends in very well. Like a lemonade.
Price: 9.49 EUR/ 250g
Nutritional Information 100g: 2.4 Cal/ 0g Fat/ 0.6g Carbs/ 0g Protein
Description: Vegan, gluten free, fat free and sugar free.Great variety of different flavors.
Flavor/Taste: In my eyes it has nothing in common with chocolate, neither in taste nor in consistency. Extremely sweet, very artificial and tastes more like dark caramel than chocolate.
Consistency: Slightly more liquid than normal syrup.
Price: 5.99 EUR/ 400ml
My recommendation: Put it as a sweetener in a protein shake overnight oats or porridge. Or just have a piece of real chocolate instead 🙂
Sugar Free Syrup (Golden Syrup)
Nutritional Information 100g: 1.6 Cal/ 0g Fat/ 0.4g Carbs/ 0g Protein
Description: Vegan, gluten free, fat free and sugar free.Great variety of different flavors. Perfect as a topping on pancakes, yogurts or any kind of sweet snack.
Flavor/Taste: It is quite sweet but does not have any additional kind of taste. Slightly difficult to portion, the packaging opening is very large. Taste is not too artificial. Really nice to sweeten yogurt, shakes, porridge, overnight oats or pancakes.
Consistency: Slightly more liquid than normal syrup
Price: 5.99 EUR/ 400ml
My recommendation: Perfect to add a little more sweetness to your protein shake. Blends in very well.
Protein Cereal Bar
Nutritional Information 30g: 92 Cal/ 2.6g Fat/ 14g Carbs/ 4.8g Protein
Description: Chocolate Cereal Bar with slightly higher protein than normal bars. Perfect snack on the go. 1 bar has less than 100 calories. Turned out to be smaller than I expected.
Flavor/Taste: I’m a really big fan of this cereal bar. It is the perfect kind of gooey, nutty, not too sweet and half coated in chocolate.
Consistency: Perfect consistency for a cereal bar. Not dry at all and perfectly gooey.
Price: SOLD OUT ATM
Alternative/ Similar in Taste: Oats & Whey Protein ( Higher in calories, higher in protein) https://www.myprotein.at/sporternahrung/oats-whey-proteinriegel/10529358.html
Protein Sandwich Cookie
Nutritional Information 30g: 125 Cal/ 6.7g Fat/ 5.3g Carbs/ 6.7g Protein
Description: High Protein Chocolate and Cream Sandwich Cookie. Individually wrapped. Turned out different than I expected, it looks more like a huge Oreo cookie than a original chocolate chip cookie, what I expected
Flavor/Taste: Not too sweet, similar to Oreo cookies.
Consistency: Very dry, but crunchy.
Price: 13.99 EUR/ box of 10
My recommendation: Cut it and put it on top of a yogurt bowl or dip into your cappuccino. Delicious.
