So, you know me when it comes to supplements and powders…if it’s done in moderation and you find it’s actually beneficial to you then I say go for it. If, however you are just taking something to follow the crowd, then it’s just in excess and for no clear benefit other than “fitting in.”
I was sent Everlast’s new vegan protein powder to try in light vanilla flavor a few days ago.
Currently, I use Cellucor in the strawberry milkshake flavor…but on occasion.
As soon as I opened the package from Everlast, I was met with a powdery nose and a wonderful vanilla aroma. The bag is resealable, however, I had trouble with that, so I chip clipped it instead.
The first concoction I decided to make were some protein balls!
I love making a batch every now and then and popping them in my lunch bag or purse for conveniently healthy snacking.
-32 g peanut butter
-40 g organic clover honey
-32 g (or 1 scoop) Everlast light vanilla vegan protein powder
-cinnamon for dusting (optional)
All I did was mix first three ingredients listed in a small bowl and then formed into balls.
*NOTE* – you may need to add a spoonful of water or almond milk to make the consistency more doughy.
After the balls were formed and since it is fall, I rolled them in some warm cinnamon to finish them off.
A few facts which sets Everlast a part from “other” protein powders:
- 110 calories
- 22 grams of protein
- Soy & Gluten Free
I highly recommend this protein powder as it blends easily not only for smoothie use but in baking as well. The taste is wonderful and light.
My only con is the amount of sodium per serving included. 540 mg. is A LOT of sodium, almost half of your required sodium intake for the day. Just in one scoop. I advise if you do use protein powders to use this one in moderation.
