I’ve been greatly anticipating the arrival of my new Maca Up protein powders from Paradise Herbs. I purchased mine from Amazon here. I cracked into the Vanilla flavor today, and I was not disappointed! I took a sip of it, before transforming it into some berry bliss. I have to say that it did taste pretty plain at that point, and not very vanilla-y, but once I added the strawberries, oats, and some liquid stevia to sweeten, it was pure deliciousness! I also think it bares mentioning that maca is well known for its energy giving properties, which I did not notice any surge of, but I DID feel extremely satiated after drinking 16 oz of this, and was really happy with the outcome. And this particular protein powder is vegan/plant based, and is also touted as helping after workouts, and for building long lean muscles. I’m sold. Chocolate flavor review coming soon!
