I received a free sample packet of Manitoba HempPro 70 from Swaggable in exchange for writing a review.

Let me just say, there was a time when I chased down the perfect protein powder, lately not so much…but I always say you’ll find things that are right for you when you’re not looking for them,

Intersting enough, I’ve been looking at my schedule and working on ways to set time out for myself. It is important for me to get my fitness “time” back as a priority in my life, so receiving this protein powder was like a confirmation of my thoughts to get healthy and continue healing.

This was my first time trying a hemp protein, so I was very interested in the taste and texture. You can’t walk through a health food store without finding Hemp products everywhere. You can get everything from hemp oil, clothes, rope, food, paper, etc, etc., etc..Did you know every part of a hemp plant can be used to create something? Pretty interesting stuff!

So enough of that, let’s get to the review. This protein powder is vegetarian, organic, has 3.4 grams of Omega 3 & 7, an amazing 20 grams of protein per serving and is water-soluble.

I used my sample packet and tried it a few different ways. I put half of the packet In a shaker cup and mixed it using only water. I wanted to get the true taste. It wasn’t horrible but not great. If you had to drink it straight, you could. I will say that it mixed wonderfully. No lumps or bumps, It wasn’t chalky or gritty and had a very smooth texture.

 The instructions on the packet suggested adding it to orange juice, greens powder & ice took. I didn’t have any orange juice on hand so I added the rest of my water/protein mixture to a greens powder I had on hand, frozen berries and some ice, it was great!

I took the other half of the protein powder and mixed it into some yogurt, I could definitely taste the orange flavor and I really enjoyed the taste. Aesthetically, it turned my yogurt into a dull green hue, not pretty but the taste was good.

The Manitoba website is full of recipes using their products including one for Minted-Pea Gazpacho using HempPro 70 that sounds delicious!  I believe that this is a premium protein. After looking up the price points for this protein powder, it is pricey but worth it. HempPro 70 is a complete protein filled with health benefits that go beyond the simple need to consume a protein drink after a workout.
