A Sweet Treat Made with Raw Protein and Greens

I know that I need to eat more veggies. I know it. I know all the health benefits of eating the greens, I know that it will help me lose weight, have more energy, be healthier, blah blah blah. I know all this stuff, but knowing that just doesn't make them taste any better. Now, I'm not going to stereotype that it's all veggies, because it's not; there are some veggies that are good, it's just not those leafy green ones that I'm supposed to be eating more of, and it's certainly not kale!

I tried kale chips, and kale smoothies, but I just couldn't get past the bitter taste. I really think there's some marketing genius out there that has convinced the world that they are supposed to like kale, so they think they do, but it is not good. So, what's a girl with anti-kale taste buds to do to get all the veggie nutrients I need? Thankfully, Garden of Life has given me an answer, a sweet sweet answer!

Garden of Life makes a variety of really good healthy products, but this one is my favorite because it solves my problem and it tastes awesome!


That's right, you heard me...RAW Protein and greens tastes awesome! Now, you know it's hard enough to find a protein powder that tastes good, but now you've thrown in greens too...I thought for sure it would be bitter and pasty, and gross. But RAW Proteins and greens is actually really really good, and it can be used in so many ways.

RAW Protein and greens comes in 3 flavors, Chocolate, Vanilla, and Lightly Sweetened. They are all good.

Hubby likes the chocolate with almond milk and peppermint.

The Lightly Sweetened is perfect for baking. Just add a scoop or 2 to your favorite muffin or bread recipe, and you've added some protein and veggies to your sweet dessert.

My favorite is the Vanilla. I love it blended with raspberries, bananas, and almond milk or throw it in to the blender with some ice, almond milk, and coffee for a great start to your day. It's super yum!
