I read reviews before I bought this, so I guess i'm in the minority but I hate this product. I've tried this with water, milk, and in my coffee. I've hated it with all three. It's gritty, it doesn't mix well at all, and the chocolate tasted like slightly sweetened cardboard. It leaves this slimy snot-like residue in whatever container you're drinking out of. I don't think I can choke down any more of this stuff.

Vanilla - The vanilla flavor definitely tastes amazing. Does not have that artificial vanilla flavor that most protein/meal powders have so it's not overly sweet but it is a delicious vanilla flavor that is great to have either plain or with peanut butter, almond butter, banana, blueberries etc. I have to be honest it is a tiny bit grainy, you will notice it but it still goes down smooth. I have a giant appetite and a pretty fast metabolism so I usually add two tablespoons of organic peanut butter or an organic banana. I have this meal everyday and it always fills me up and holds me over until my next solid meal. I just always physically feel great after taking this product, super easy and quick to make, super convenient for in between meals or on the go. I never have those horrible "I'm starving shaky feelings" afterwards like you get with most protein powders. I just have to say that I have been ordering from bodybuilding.com consistently since 2010 and this is actually my first review that I just had to leave because I am so happy with this product and I hope others read my review, buy it, use it and feel great as well. May seem a bit pricey but it is absolutely worth every penny to make sure what you are putting in your body is safe. YOU HAVE TO READ THE LABELS! ORGANIC, RAW, VEGAN, GLUTEN FREE, SOY FREE, DAIRY FREE, NO SWEETENER, NO PRESERVATIVES, NO ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, NO ADDED SUGARS, NO FILLERS!!! You can not beat that! This is by far the absolute best protein/meal shake I've had yet and I am beyond impressed with the quality this product and I have to give a lot of credit to this Garden of Life. I am very happy to have found this brand and I will definitely be ordering more supplements from Garden of Life.

If you're used to those other protein shakes that are filled with artificial sweeteners (that are harmful for your overall health) you might have a problem with this protein shake. If you're used to juicing and creating your own fruit smoothies you'll love this shake. I love it, it smells bad...YES! But it taste great. A bit grainy, but that's because it's fill with superfoods our bodies need. You don't buy these shakes for the taste, you drink them for the benifits it has for your bodies! (If you don't like this one try Garden of Lifes Sport Whey Protein...it taste like 1% milk with water. GOOD STUFF! No fillers and sweeteners and hormones etc. (Give your bodies the best)

Not a very taste full mix at all

Like other people have said, it can take some getting used to if you expect it to be like MuscleMilk but the benefits to it outweigh the organic taste and texture. I mix mine with some frozen fruit or spiced chai tea ice cubes to enhance the flavor.

I LOVE this stuff. I was worried it would taste bad based on some of the reviews, but I think it tastes amazing (and actually keeps me full!). Before going vegan, I tried numerous whey/casein protein powders, which included some pretty nasty tasting ones, so I was shocked by how great this tasted in comparison. Here's the thing: if your definition of "tastes terrible" includes things that taste bitter/chemically, then this stuff doesn't taste terrible. The people who think this tastes terrible are the people who aren't used to or don't like "healthy" or "green" tasting things. If you can handle a shake with a couple handfuls of spinach or kale blended in, you can handle this stuff. Try it with some frozen bananas, yum.

  • 10 Chocolate Cacao

I like the flavour it tastes like raw cocoa when mixed with water and it is definitely a complete meal. I mix half of scoop with 12 oz water but you can add unsweetened almond milk and other fruits to thicken and sweeten the content, but I love it. It reminds me of dark chocolate. Great meal replacement, I have it for breakfast and after a workout.

I just bought it last week, and I have started off with a scoop in the morning. It is VERY filling. I mix it with unsweetened almond milk (or water, sometimes). This stuff is amazing! Yes, it tastes very healthy (I would describe it as "earthy") and it is a tad grainy, but it is honestly delicious. I look forward to when it is my time to drink it. You can feel all the nutrition fueling and working in your body. I LOVEEE this! Just wish it came in a bigger container and it wasn't so pricey :P.

So I wanted a protein added to my diet that didn't taste like a powdery substance. This is definitely a great product to try because it has so many nutrients. I have only been taking this drink for a week and have noticed the difference in my skin and hair. I use this as a protein smoothie in the morning and one thing I wasn't a fan of was how thick this drink so its very difficult to mix it in a typical blender bottle. So I started using a blender, added more milk, only used a single scoop of the powder and added some fruits to lighten the drink a little bit. Now I can finally say I love the product.

This is my favorite protein powder! Because it is plant based, it doesn't taste chalky like most protein powder (to me). I mix it in with my fruit smoothie every morning. In my smoothie I use one fuji apple, 6 strawberries, 4-5 dates, almonds, walnuts, spinach, cranberries, oatmeal, juice from a a wedge of lemon, fresh apple juice, & ice. The fiber content is also amazing. Must be sure to drink lots of water after drinking this.

This raw vegan meal replacement is a staple in my kitchen! It's gluten free, dairy free and best of all, soy free. My favorite flavor is the Marley Coffee, but I haven't tried a flavor of this brand I didn't like. It's a complete protein and has a biological value of 98.2%!!! For those who aren't familiar with biological value, it's a measure of the absorbed protein which gets incorporated into the proteins of the body. It has good immune and digestive support via enzymes and live probiotics, and for me, the fact it's organic and non-GMO is important. The snack is 1 scoop, the meal is 2 scoops, with the meal offering 34g of protein. My only gripe is that I'm not a big fan of rice protein; even within a mixture. Overall I think it's a great add to any pantry, vegan or otherwise.

I didn't purchase this item on bb.com, but will do so next time since I now know they offer it. I have been looking for some kind of nutritional powder that I could supplement with that didn't have a exorbitant amount of carbs. I have been looking at the "Ultimate Meal", but my local supplement store didn't carry it and I wanted something today. I came across this brand and conducted a quick search on my smartphone. All the reviews were great in regards to its nutritional content which is what I was after. I did read some comments about heavy metals in the powder and I will touch back on that matter later. The only downside to the product was the taste and texture and the rewiews I read describing this were absolutely entertaining. That didn't deter me from purchasing a small tub, but I did prepare myself mentally for a stomach churning experience. I made my first drink using two scoops in about 18 ounces of water and blended it for a minute. I was utterly shocked by the taste. It wasn't bad at all and I was able to chug the shake down with ease. The texture is chalky, but that doesn't bother me. I will update this review after a month of usage. Now on to the subject of heavy metals in Raw Meal powder. First, this is a concern with all protein powders on the market and not just Raw Meal. Labdoor has done a test on GOL's Raw Protein product which uses the same sprouted protein blend that is in Raw Meal and it passed their tests. Always do your due diligence before making any kind of decision. I believe this product is safe and will continue to use it. Stay tuned for my one month update.

I've been using this protein powder for over a year and switched to it after talking with a company rep at my neighborhood WF. It took a while to get used to the thick texture, but once I did, I liked it and it helped keep me from snacking during the day, negating my workouts. Now I read there's a problem with heavy metals (tungsten, lead, cadmium) associated with Garden of Life products using brown rice protein. Has anyone else heard about this? I'm trying to find out if it's legit. In the meantime I think I'll stop using the product. My rating reflects my experience prior to hearing this recent news.
