Popularized by its daily greens superfood powder, Amazing Grass has just released an all-in-one, plant-based protein nutrition shake, and in three different flavors. Packed with 2 full servings of fruits and vegetables (rich with 7 different alkalizing greens,) 20 grams of plant-based protein, and no added sugar, Amazing Grass Protein Superfood is an unquestionably-solid vegan protein powder that provides it all. 

As stated on the product's official description, Amazing Grass Protein Superfood promotes lean muscle, satisfies hunger, nourishing energy, and aids digestion. In addition to being 100% organic, non-GMO, and gluten free, Amazing Grass Protein Superfood is also a paleo vegan protein powder in that it's (arguably) grain-free.

In conducting my Amazing Grass Protein Superfood review, I had the opportunity to try all three flavors. But before getting into the flavor review of this vegan protein powder, let's take a quick look at the nutritional facts of this product.

In the nutritional review of Amazing Grass Protein Superfood, the plant-based protein blend of this product contains: organic pea, hemp, chia, and quinoa. For some (particularly the paleo folks out there,) the quinoa might raise your eyebrows given that Amazing Grass claims this vegan protein powder to be grain-free. However, quinoa is debatably a seed

Nonetheless, quinoa doesn't always agree with those who eat a grain-free diet, and many individuals in the paleo community will argue against the consumption of quinoa. 

The green food blend in Amazing Grass Protein Superfood (which is also in other products from Amazing Grass) is dense with organic wheat grass, alfalfa, barley grass, spinach, spirulina, chlorella, and broccoli. Further helping to promote optimal recovery, this vegan protein supplement also has organic acai, banana, beet, goji, pineapple, sweet potato, raspberry, and rose hips.

Compared to other fruit and vegetable infused vegan protein powders, Amazing Grass Protein Superfood offers one of the most complete ingredient blends from a nutritional standpoint. All varieties are flavored with organic Madagascar vanilla, and the Original is stevia-free. 

Having poked around on other sites featuring this product, Amazing Grass Protein Superfood has already earned a healthy dose of rave reviews for its superb taste and comprehensive nutritional profile.

Flavor Review of Amazing Grass Protein Superfood

After all of the vegan protein powder reviews I've published on this website, Amazing Grass Protein Superfood is the only product to offer a peanut butter flavor (and with real peanuts!) If that doesn't get you excited, then you'll be pleased to know that roster of Amazing Grass Protein Superfood offers three different options: Original, Vanilla, and of course, Chocolate Peanut Butter

With all flavors, you can tell there are a lot of plants in each serving of Amazing Grass Superfood Protein, however each flavor is very well-balanced, smooth, and delicious. Additionally, the protein powder easily mixes in milk or water, so it's perfect for on-the-fly consumption when you don't have access to a blender.

Original Flavor Review (Sweetness Scale 0/10)

With less than 1 gram of sugar and no stevia, you'd think the original flavor of Amazing Grass Superfood Protein would be quite bland and earthy. Au contraire, the original flavor is one of the most smooth and delicious au naturale vegan protein powders I've tasted.

Right up there with Sunwarrior Classic Plus Natural (perhaps even better,) the original flavor is a nice, universally-applicable option that doesn't over-power or over-flavor your smoothie. It's a little earthy on its own with just milk, so I highly suggest mixing it with something. But what I enjoy about this flavor is that it tastes more real and authentic (doesn't try to cover up with earthiness with stevia.) You definitely taste the vegetables, but their subtle and smooth. I found it to be a great addition in my avocado, spinach, and peach smoothie.

Vanilla Flavor Review (Sweetness Scale 5/10)

Like the original flavor of Amazing Grass Superfood Protein, there's a light layer of earthy undertones to vanilla; however the inclusion of stevia helps sweeten and balance-out the taste. If you're stevia sensitive like me, rest assured knowing that Amazing Grass harnesses the stevia with finesse, as its not too sweet, nor is there any aftertaste. What I really like about the vanilla flavor of this vegan protein powder is that it tasted somewhat like gingerbread cookies. 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Flavor Review (Sweetness Scale 4/10)

In a strict effort to maintain an unbiased and neutral mindset while trying this enticing flavor, I was honestly very pleased with taste of this creative, peanut-buttery fusion. Upon tasting, I got a very distinct and delightful peanut butter flavor in the background, with a mocha-java chocolate kick that's a bit more forward. Overall, I found  the chocolate peanut butter flavor of Amazing Grass Protein Superfood to a decadent combination in which I would most certainly buy in the future. It's one of the most unique vegan protein powders with respect to both flavor and nutritional profile.
