For each serving of 37g (or a 'scoop', but my container didn't include a scoop so I used the Sunwarrior one), you get 140 calories, 5g fat, and 14g protein, plus at least 100% of your daily vitamin A, C, B6, B12, and other vitamins. The chocolate taste is the best I've found in any protein powder, from Sunwarrior to Vega to Plantfusion. It's a little chalky, as they all are, but it tastes the most like chocolate milk and not like chocolate-flavored protein. So that's good!
- 1 serving Purfit
- 1 cup water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
This simple recipe is what sold me on the product. I never drink protein powder straight with water; I always add it to my morning smoothies. The thought of having other powders plain grosses me out. But this tasted like chocolate milk! I was shocked, and delighted. I'll definitely be getting Purfit out when I want a chocolate milk fix.
MY FAVORITE GREEN SMOOTHIE
- 2 cups frozen kale (squish it into the blender with your hands and you can fit more)
- 1 cup frozen rainbow chard
- 1 cup frozen spinach
- 1/2 cup frozen collards
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
Fill the blender with water first, about 2 cups. Blend until really really smooth. It makes a ton, so I like to freeze the extras in single-serve Mason jars to take to work on days I have less time.
My favorite smoothie was just as great with Purfit. The chocolate was a bit more pronounced but I like that. The strange thing was, I felt way fuller much later in the day than I normally do. I was barely hungry for dinner after having this for my first meal. I don't necessarily like that, but for those of you who need help staying full between meals, I recommend giving this a try!
CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER ICE CREAM
Normally the consistency of water ice, this recipe turned out much creamier this time, and I have to attribute that to the Purfit. Shocking! I love the idea of sneaking protein powder into ice cream. Since the taste didn't seem different, there's really no reason not to add it in if you need more protein.
