I used the Hemp Protein in place of my regular protein powder in my usual fruit smoothie recipe. I didn’t change any other ingredients except for the protein powder. The biggest complaint about Hemp Protein is that it is grainy and gritty and doesn’t dissolve well. I can report that this is NOT the case for the Viva Labs Organic Hemp Protein. I didn’t notice any grainy texture or grittiness while drinking the smoothie. I did notice the flavor was slightly different compared to when I use a whey protein powder. I also shared the Hemp Protein with my cousin who has been trying to find the best Hemp Protein and had been really disappointed with the gritty and grainy ones she had been trying. After she tried the Viva Labs one, she was thrilled. She said she hardly tasted the powder and said it was not gritty at all. Two happy customers for Viva Lab’s Organic Hemp Protein!
If you are looking for a gluten-free or vegetarian way to add protein to smoothies and other dishes, then I highly recommend the Viva Labs Organic Hemp Protein. You can see in the photos above, that the protein in the package is a very fine powder which will make it dissolve easily when mixed with other products. This is THE Hemp Protein to use and be sure you have a smoothie without that gritty texture!
