Product Summary

Packed with 20 grams of organic plant protein and six organic greens and veggies, Garden of Life’s Raw Organic Protein and Greens offers a convenient way to get a solid dose of protein and greens in one drink. Formulated to aid in muscle recovery, support energy levels and digestive health, this supplement makes a good post-workout drink.

The plant-based protein is derived from organic sprouted brown rice, peas, chia, navy beans, lentil beans, and garbanzo beans. In addition, it contains green energy from organic alfalfa grass juice, spinach, kale, broccoli, carrots, and beets. This protein powder provides 1.5 billion CFU probiotics and 13 non-GMO enzymes for digestion. Suffice to say, it packs a powerful, nutritional punch.

There are reports of poor solubility and an overall grainy or chalky taste. Even when using a blender, many users found it did not mix well. Garden Life’s Raw Organic Protein and Greens is available in three flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla, and Lightly Sweet. While most appreciated the taste of this powder, the Lightly Sweet flavor does have added sugar and is too sweet for some.
