Nourishing Protein is one of the newer additions to WelleCo's Super Elixir range. Formulated in collaboration with clinical nutritionist Dr. Laubscher, it is a truly delicious plant-based alternative to traditional protein powders. At present the flavour options are vanilla or chocolate – this review will focus on the latter.
Made from a blend of 37 natural ingredients – the full list of which can be found here – each serving provides 30% of your daily allowance of protein, 25% of your recommended daily allowance of vitamin D, 67% of your recommended daily allowance of B12, as well as a healthy dose of probiotics.
The powder is very finely ground and while it says on the packet that you can mix it with just water or almond milk, I prefer to add it to my smoothies.It has a pleasant chocolate-y taste and I've found it very easy to digest – none of that bloating or an over-full feeling that is usually associated with nutritional powders.
I dislike swallowing pills so supplementing my diet in this way works well for me. I love that I can add a scoop to my morning smoothie and be set for the rest of that day – especially as it has probiotics in it, too. I know some people complain about the high price point but I firmly believe that you get what you pay for, and this is by far the best protein powder I've tried.
