Is there a "clean" protein supplement?

Not all protein powders are created equal.  Most protein supplements available at the grocery or health food store contain artificial flavors and sweeteners - sucralose, and other additives I don't feel comfy eating or sharing with my kids.
You're familiar with the dangers of artificial sweeteners but "natural flavors" sounds innocent enough. I mean, they're natural.  Isn't that like a healthy addition to my food?
Think again!  "Natural" flavors aren't that different from artificial  flavors".  
What separates an artificial flavor from a "natural" flavor?
"The largest difference is that natural flavors are coming from natural sources. The original ingredient is found in nature and then purified and extracted and added back into the food..." [source]
This doesn't mean the strawberry "flavor"in your Berry Blend Protein is actually dried strawberries. It probably consists of a chemical originally found in strawberries, enhanced in a food lab, and then added to the ingredients. 
I've searched for a LONG time for the "perfect protein supplement" that contains the ingredients I need AND the with the taste I want.


I truly LOVE Aloha Protein!  Both the vanilla and the chocolate are delish.  


I also love that it is plant based protein instead of whey protein isolate. Dairy can sometimes create internal inflammation and sensitivities in your body which can hinder mineral absorption and weight loss.  (Plus, my family already eats enough yogurt and cheese to sink a ship.)  



If you're looking for a TRULY natural and great tasting protein for your morning smoothie, then try Aloha Protein.

My "Go to" Morning Smoothie  

Serves 1

1 c almond milk

2 T peanuts or chia seeds

1 t cinnamon

3/4 c frozen mixed berries

1/2 banana (frozen or fresh)

1 packet Aloha Vanilla Protein (or 2 scoops from the tin)


If you're feeling brave, throw in 2 c baby kale or spinach.  (It's ok to omit this on your first smoothie trial...!)


Toss ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.  (If you're using a "traditional blender" - aka - non-high powered, add the frozen fruit after the other ingredients are well combined.)  


Pour into 20 oz cup and enjoy!
