You're reviewing: Essential Protein Vanilla
- To balance the negative review with a positive one Review by Jill
I wanted to change from my whey protein shake to a pea protein one, so decided to try Lifestream Essential Protein Vanilla. I always use my "Magic Bullet" to blend my protein drinks to ensure a smooth finish and I also add a banana to help with thickening and flavour. It took a while to get used to the slightly grainy feel on the tongue and different flavour from my previous old faithful, but I got such a surprise when I found I only needed one scoop of powder per 200ml liquid so an added bonus is that the product lasts twice as long as expected! Also, I use rice milk as I find I can only take limited dairy. Now I find the shake very pleasant and easy to drink and having nearly finished my first container, I will definitely continue to buy this product.

- The texture, oh god the texture.... Review by Georgia
Bought this powder to help recover from an illness. Thinking about how great their Essential Greens powder is, I wondered how any company that could produce something as fantastic as Essential Greens could fail at a protein powder. With the texture of the cardboard box it arrived in, blended with water into a slurry that tastes vaguely like vanilla, I am still picking bits of 'protein' out of my teeth. So disappointed especially since it's expensive and near undrinkable. Seriously, companies should not state a product is fit to me mixed in a shaker if the first thing it does is separate when it is no longer in motion? Nope. Nopetty nope nope. Also the graphic of the smooth, creamy shake on the pot is a lie. Nothing made from this powder could produce something that smooth. I am actually concerned that the powder might turn into concrete in my GI tract overnight....
