Sun Warrior

I tried a new protein powder -- Sun Warrior Raw Vegan Protein, in vanilla.  It has 70 calories per serving with 16 grams of protein.  The number one ingredient, interestingly, is raw sprouted whole grain brown rice, and according to the label it is one of the most easily digested proteins.

And yet, it tastes terrific!  I've mixed with soy yogurt, and this evening I made a smoothie with one scoop of vanilla Sun Warrior, one cup of strawberries, half a cup of blueberries, and a cup of ice.

At 200 calories, this smoothie is very filling.

I've tried other rice protein powders and loved them. I should give this a whirl.
