great raw protein drink - vegan too
on 7 July 2013
I have an ulcer, and as such, my tummy can be very tricky, but I can have this, even on a bad ulcer day, no probs at all.
I like the whole range of Warrior Blends, but the Natural one is great as there is no stevia, and for my palate, this is preferable. Natural version also allows you to add it to sweet or savoury drinks or soups, also allows you to self sweeten to taste, or add vanilla or raw cacao to your own taste too - what more can you ask for. superb, regular item for me. I often have this for breakfast - I add more water than suggested, then one frozen banana, one date and some raw cacao. i sometimes toss in a green superfood such as amazing grass too :-) superb.
THE FLAVOUR VERSIONS: When using the vanilla I add 2 bananas, and top the water up to 850ml, i drink one glass them refrigerate the rest and drink over the next 2 hours. I don't find the chocolate version overly chocolatey, its more vanilla with very mild choc.
THE BAG SEAL - arrives with the seal track bunged up with powder, so you need to run a cocktails stick thru it to clear the track and make the bag seal properly. NOTICE: No more bag seal woes - 2015 THEY SWITCHED TO TUBS!!!!!
!! RECIPE CHANGE !! In 2015 they switched to tubs and changed the ingredients here are there, for example some ingredients are no longer listed as organic or sprouted, salt has been added to a few of the recipes, as well as flavourings, extracts and dutch cacao. !!
UPDATE 2015 - Ingredients list below taken from details taken from Sunwarriors own site may 28 2016, so hope its of use.
PLEASE NOTE : As I write Warriorblend natural, choc and vanilla are missing from sunwarriors site and i am unable to update the ingredients for those.
