This was the first one I tried, and my protein-mixing knowledge was still in its infancy.
The packet advised to “blend with 250ml of your favourite milk”. I only had coconut milk in the fridge, which isn’t my favourite. It’s too thick, giving the shake an overly-dense outcome – nothing a little water or a lighter milk wouldn’t fix.
My first impression was its incredibly earthy smell, which I put down to the hemp – not unpleasant, mind. The flavour was lightly chocolatey, not as strong as some others, but pleasing nonetheless.
In terms of nutrition, it’s pretty impressive: hemp, linseed, sunflower kernels, chia, pumpkin and sesame seeds. Basically all the good stuff. With 14.2g of protein per portion, it’s a little lower than some others, so perhaps not the best option for muscle-building.
