The addition of protein powder to a smoothie is a great way to add some extra benefits easily and without much compromise on taste for your drink. With all the protein options out there, it can get understandably confusing. A long time ago, I used to take Whey protein. It was everywhere, cheap, and frankly, I thought it was the only form of protein available. It definitely worked with my satiety (feeling of fullness), but boy did it mess with my stomach. And with many of the whey protein products available, there are a lot of fillers, additives, and other ingredients that I definitely wanted to stay away from.
Through a lot of research (and testing on my own), I found two protein powders that work for me: Hemp Protein and Brown Rice Protein. They provided me with the satiety and muscle toning benefits without the chemicals and upset stomach. Hemp protein provides an array of additional benefits that’s hard to find with any other product.
