Are you looking for the best organic plant based protein powder? Lately I have been into the hemp based protein by Manitoba Harvest. If you are looking for the best organic plant based protein powder, I would strongly suggest that you consider one made from raw cold milled organic hemp powder below.
There is so much out there in terms of protein powders but I particularly like to use an organic plant based protein made from hemp because of its rich source in nutrients.
Not only does the hemp protein powder that I use to give me 11g protein per serving, but it also has all 10 essential amino acids, omega-3, omega-6 aka GLA (which can be hard to get), stearidonic acid (SDA), magnesium, fibre, iron, zinc, and phosphorous, and 13 g fibre! It is free from fillers, processed sugars or any additives… every time I make myself a smoothie I feel like I have just filled up on absolute health!
Besides adding it to a smoothie I like to have it in oatmeal and it can be used in baking!
I posted a a video on how I use Manitoba Harvey in my oatmeal every morning. I had to do this video twice because the first time (pic above) I was not very organized with the ingredients.
- 45 g Steel Cut Oats (1 pack, no sugar or flavor just the oats)
- 2-3 pitted dates chopped up
- 1 small banana
- 1 or 2 scoops Hemp Protein
- 1 or 2 scoops Collagen (I use great lakes can find it here)
- Water and/or coconut almond milk (or almond milk) You can play with the consistency but I use about 3/4 cup-ish
- Nutmeg (optional)
- 100% real maple syrup (optional, I don’t use when I have dates typically)
- 1 tsp Organic Crunch Peanut Butter
How to make it:
I put a bit of boiling water into the oats and collagen powder until all the water is absorbed… about 3/4 cup. Honestly, I just eyeball it so do a little bit at a time until you reach the consistency you like.
I put the pitted dates and half of the banana and mix inside.
I then add some coconut almond milk (just a splash or so), cinnamon, and nutmeg (just a pinch of nutmeg).
Microwave for 45 seconds or so (depends on your microwave)
Take it out and it should be a thick consistency with the majority of the liquid absorbed. I give it a bit of a stir and add in the hemp protein and then stir it again.
If you want you can add the maple syrup (about 1 tbsp)… I find it sweet enough with the dates and banana personally.
I add the rest of the banana on top with the peanut butter on top of the banana… that’s just how I like it….
