As alluring as the name may be, this doesn’t mean to just drop trow and read this because that might be a tad weird; for you that is. I mean who sits behind a computer and reads a review of some pea protein while they are naked?! Not me!
All silliness aside, I’ll be up front and say that I was sent a tub of this for review purposes, that doesn’t mean my review will be slanted one way though. That said, I don’t have much bad to say about this stuff.
The fact that the ingredient list only has one ingredient is pretty damned amazing. Most vegan protein powders have a ton of different stuff in them, most also have a boatload of sugar. This stuff came at a great time for me though as I’m trying my best to cut out added and processed sugars.
After runs and workouts I’ve been blending two scoops of Naked Pea Protein, some frozen fruits/ veggies, dates and water. The one thing I will be perfectly straight with you all about is the fact this stuff has no flavor; at all. But that shouldn’t come as a shock as it says unflavored on the container. With the fruits and veggies added you get a nice clean flavor, and the dates bring some sweetness, and that I can appreciate.
Wondering what the basic macro profile looks like? Well here it is…
- 2 grams of carbs
- .5 grams of fat
- 27 grams of protein
- 120 total calories
Besides the great macro profile, the cost to serving ration is insane! It contains all of the essential amino acids and weighs in a 5.7 grams of BCAAs per serving as well.
This stuff is super easy on the stomach. I get bloated with some of the other proteins out there and it’s not the case here; its very easily digestible. It mixes well which probably has a lot to do with digestion as it’s not clumpy.
I’m hoping to use this in an energy ball recipe soon and will post that when I do.
All in all, minus the taste, this stuff is super legit and I’d happily recommend to anyone who is not only vegan but is allergic to all the other stuff like whey powders because, well, they are not baby cows.
But you already knew that.
