Review: RAW Protein & greens™ / Peaches and Greens Smoothie

Disclosure: Special thanks to Garden of Life for sponsoring this post. 

Spring is on its way, and there's no better time to up your intake of greens, especially after the long, carb-filled winter. Here's an easy option: RAW Protein & greens™, a Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified combination of clean organic plant protein and organic veggies. Providing 20g of delicious, smooth protein per serving, the RAW, organic plant protein used in RAW Protein & greens is derived from organic pea, organic sprouted brown rice, organic chia, organic navy bean (sprout), organic lentil bean (sprout) and organic garbanzo bean (sprout). Mix it into your smoothie and you'll start your day on a healthy, green note.

What is new RAW Protein & greens

A delicious addition to the Garden of Life® protein family, RAW Protein & greens is a Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified combination of clean organic plant protein and organic veggies. Why is Certified Organic and Non-GMO Verified important? In addition to clean tasting better, concentrating plants—proteins and veggie powders—makes them super nutritious in small, calorie-controlled servings. Conventional farming uses toxic pesticides and fertilizer that can leave residue, or GMOs, then all of that would be concentrated too. That’s why we are careful to use only organically-farmed ingredients.

The blend of six nutrient-rich, energizing, organic greens and veggies in RAW Protein & greens includes organic alfalfa grass juice which has six times the nutrient density of whole leaf grass, plus organic spinach, organic kale, organic broccoli, organic carrot and organic beet.

What else should I know about RAW Protein & greens™?

Because digestive and immune system health is so important to overall wellness,† we’ve also included 1.5 billion live probiotics and 13 Non-GMO enzymes in RAW Protein & greens™, along with 3g of organic fiber.

Who is RAW Protein & greens™ designed for?

Anyone who wants the convenience of a clean, high-protein shake that also helps you get your daily servings of organic nutritious veggies and greens—all in one great-tasting serving!

What if I don’t like stevia?

We use the highest quality organic stevia, ensuring no bitterness or aftertaste. But for those who don’t care for stevia, we created a delicious option with no stevia and just a touch of sweetness from organic sugars.
