A company which strives to create nourishing and nutrient-rich products which will help improve peoples lives. They have 2 types of protein powders:
- WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE
Both of them have a few ingredients & come in many different flavours.
In my case, I have tried the RAW CACAO WHEY PROTEIN. I am a big fan of chocolate flavours and I do have to say that this chocolate protein didn’t disappoint.
However, I was very surprised that the whey protein range is
“unique whey extracted directly from grass-fed cow milk & is lactose-free and gentle on the digestive system. “
Which IS INCREDIBLE!
As you may have known I suffered from gut issues in the oast and I always make sure that I avoid lactose, gluten and other products which are not that easy on my digestion. This is why this protein powder was a perfect choice for me.
As I have already mentioned, this whey protein comes from isolate protein powder which is one of the best quality protein sources in the market. In most cases, it is also more expensive because its quality is truly one of the bests from other protein ranges.
If you didn’t know, whey protein isolate is one of the most complete sources of protein, which contains all 9 essential amino acids.
A protein isolate is a type of protein powder that has undergone a little more processing than a concentrate. The “processing” steps are generally just simple cooking, filtering, and decanting off fat and other lower protein portions to separate and collect the purest protein fractions. The additional processing actually isolates better the purity of the protein that you want in the end, separating it from the fat, lactose, gluten, and other stuff that you don’t want.
Regarding this exact flavour and its specifics, I will take you through every detail, going from texture to flavour and other important pieces of information. I will grade the protein from 1-5, of which 1 is the lowest grade and 5 is the best.
- GLUTEN- FREE
- NO ARTIFICIAL FLAVORING
- 100% NATURAL
TEXTURE: 4- Very well blended with water and milk. It also created a creamy and delicious texture in my baking which I love seeing when creating recipes.
SWEETNESS: 3- Not very sweet. It has a flavour of the cacao which I personally really like, but it is nothing close to the typical chocolate flavours regarding sweetness.
OVERALL FLAVOUR: 4 – Would prefer it the combination of the texture and flavour was a bit more similar to an eaither dark chocolate or milk chocolate but not as much in-between.
BLENDING: 5 – Blended perfectly with milk and water. No lumps and chunks.
PROTEIN BASE: Whey protein isolate
TOTAL INGREDIENTS: 4
PROTEIN / SERVING: 21.4g (2.1g CH, 0,7g F, 0.2g Fibre)
Chocolate protein stuffed crepes
Light and airy crepes you haven’t tried before.
- 2 eggs
- 100ml egg whites
- 20g coconut flour
- 1/2 scoop of PureblendCo chocolate protein
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- extra bit of liquid sweetener
In a bowl add the eggs, protein powder and vanilla. Mix everything with a hand mixer until well combined
In another bowl add the egg whites and beat them until fluffy. Then combine gently with a spatula the 2 mixtures.
Heat up a non-stick pan on medium heat and add in some coconut oil. Once the pan is hot enough add in 2 tbsp of the mixture and spread it evenly with a spoon on a pan. You have to spread the mixture over the pan because the texture of it is fluffy so it will not spread itself.
Cook on one side for 2-3 minutes and then flip on the other side and cook for an extra 30 seconds.
Once you are done with the whole mixture and all of the crepes are done, stuff them with some cottage or ricotta lactose-free cheese and top with frozen blueberries.
