Rewarded Review

I would have used over 100 tubs of this since 2012. Its very nutritious and filling for me. I find it hard to eat enough food and have a lot of digestive issues. This is a life savior for me when I am run down or missing a meal. But I also use this daily in my morning smoothie alternating with the vegan protein with bananas & berries

Me and my husband wants to loose weight so we ordered this meal replacement. At first, I didn’t like the taste because it tastes like raw oatmeal. But when I mixed it with almond milk, it became delicious. I drink this on breakfast time but my husband drinks this morning and evening and in just 3 days, he lost 1.5kg!

I'm recovering from dental surgery, and this has been a wonderful way to supplement my nutrition. With the light vanilla flavor and mild sweetness, it blends well with anything you might like! I love to toss it in smoothies, or add a touch of caramel syrup to have as a dessert. Stevia and monkfruit always taste artificial to me, and it is wonderful to find a product that does without either.

The best quality protein drink of them all. I use this to add more protein and extra vitamins to my vegan diet. The ingredients are excellent, it's full of powdered fruits and vegetables and nutrients. The flavor without stevia is my absolute favorite as I don't like the taste of stevia. The color of the shake, in this flavor, turns out to be a lovely shade of green. I simply mix it into a large glass of good spring water.

I love Garden of Life products. The packaging is easy to open and I love the big scoop. I actually don't mind the flavor as you can mix it with some almond milk and it's tasty. Just give it a good shake with your blender bottle. I use this as a pre-workout drink to curb my hunger. Overall the taste is nice.

No real flavor, so add your own (cacao powder and some sweetener will be great additions, or even cinnamon or peppermint powder with the cacao for something different!). The size/quantity is large and the package is good for re-using for storing other things (the screw top is fairly air-tight). If you use with soy milk, this will be very filling. Use water if you want it to be less filling. Helps people either lose weight (when used INSTEAD of a meal) or gain/maintain weight (when used WITH a meal as a fortified drink).

Let's face it, none of these taste great. I couldn't say this tastes good. But i really hate the stevia taste many have (i've got this brand in fun flavors before too) and sugar alcohols give me digestive issues. I avoid sugar but this has juuuust enough not to mess with my blood sugar but to make it taste decent. I add cacao powder, yogurt, or a bit of fruit puree sometimes.

I love using this as my pre breakfast. when I woke up in the morning. I drank 1 cup or this meal replacement first. coz I feel like my body absorbed quicker and more when empty stomach. so drinking a good quality and full nutrition could make me start my day with energy

Just one scoop and you get enough protein and mineral for a meal on the go. It is convenient especially when I have to leave home early. Not a replacement of all food but it is a great substitute when you are too busy too cook a healthy meal that day or week.

took my time to review this product due to a lot of negative reviews about heavy metals and ingredients. I typically try to lean toward products that are organic and clean products and narrowed it down to a few - GOL being one of them. A LOT of people talk about heavy metals in this product, others say the ingredients have changed. I read a lot before purchasing this, because like you did not want to spend this kind of money on a product that is going to backlash and do more harm than good. From my own credible research, I discovered products that are plant based can contain heavy metals. Metals are found in the earth where vegetables are grown, so this is something that you cannot completely avoid. Luckily, GOL provides info online of all the heavy metals that are in fact in their product today. They even go to the land sites where their produce is grown and test the soil... pretty impressive! If interested just search this through the web. I also learned that in low amounts our bodies can absorb some of these.... like mercury. I read that mercury can be absorbed through fibrous foods.
