I'm pretty excited to share this with you! A new protein powder! Well, not so new to me anymore, but probably new to you. I actually was first introduced to this company from Gina's blog and had received a single sample of protein in the mail. It took me awhile (I forgot about it) to try it, but a few weeks ago I did and I loved what I tasted. I'm pretty picky about my proteins, but they are an essential to my life and I use them everyday in some way or another. So when a great vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, non-gmo protein that tastes good shows up, I just have to share it with the world.
Nuzest is a new small company that is based in Australia. They just started expanding in to US markets, but they are already fully in other international locations. Nuzest was formulated from a team of health professionals, fitness trainers, and nutritionists. They strive to improve the daily nutrition of not only athletes, but anyone, using their clean 100% vegetable protein sourced from European Golden Peas!
Nuzest is completely allergy friendly (gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, vegan) and non-gmo! Clean and natural, which is right up my ally! It is easy on the stomach since they don't use artificial flavors, additives, colors, preservatives, or sugars. It is a complete protein with all 9 amino acids. If we take a look at the stats, they can just speak for themselves...
Nuzest comes in 5 flavors: Just Natural, Smooth Vanilla, Rich Chocolate, Creamy Cappuccino, and Wild Strawberry. I've tried the Smooth Vanilla and Cappuccino. The vanilla was the first one that made me fall in love and it is just so good! The perfect vanilla taste and it blended so well into my almond milk protein frosty. Smooth and delicious. The cappuccino is the new flavor I tried. Cappuccino protein powder? Come on! That is awesome! It isn't an overpowering coffee flavor, but just right! Now I can drink a cold frosty protein smoothie if I didn't get my iced coffee fix that day 😉 The nest flavor I am dieing to try is the wild strawberry! It sounds so good!
So I also have a quick smoothie bowl recipe to share using the smooth vanilla protein powder. It's a bowl because I was still staying away from straws at the time (now I'm not! Back to using straws since Monday night 😉 Joy!), but you can pour it into a cup to 😉 (Side note: Their vanilla flavor comes from pure bourbon vanilla beans! Yay!)
Purple Ninja Smoothie Bowl
+ Handful of Kale (I used frozen)
+ Handful of Spinach (I used frozen)
+ ½ Cup Frozen Raspberries
+ ½ Cup Frozen Blueberries
+ 2 Scoops of Smooth Vanilla Nuzest

+ 4 Ice Cubes
+ Topping: Granola (optional...but I suggest you do!)
+ Place the fruit, greens, protein, cinnamon, water, and ice (in that order) in to a blender. Then blend away until you get a perfect creamy think smoothie!
+ Pour into a bowl (or cup) and top with granola! Enjoy!
