Dr. Fuhrman’s protein powder review
Review of: Dr. Fuhrman Pro-Boost Superfood Powder Dietary Supplement
Dr. Fuhrman sells a certified organic, vegan protein powder with exceptional ingredients from mushrooms, fruit and vegetables. The protein comes from peas, hemp seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds and pumpkin. The name of Dr. Fuhrman’s protein powder is Pro-Boost Superfood Powder Dietary Supplement.
His protein powder is low in calories at 1.5 grams of fat, with just two grams of net carbohydrates. The price is good at $57.99 for 60 servings, which ends up being about 97 cents per serving. The downside it that a serving only contains 10 grams of protein. Most protein powders contain 15-20 grams of protein per serving. If you want to consume 20 grams of this protein powder per day, the cost is on the steeper end at almost $2 per serving.
Because of the unique flavors of this protein powder, possibly due to the mushrooms, it doesn’t go well with chocolate, and many types of fruits. The only fruit that seems to pair well with this protein powder is a banana if you’re making a traditional fruit smoothie. If you’re making a green smoothie, then it goes well with banana and one of the following fruits: pineapple, apple, and green grapes (I’ll be sharing my green smoothie recipes for nutrition repair soon).
Although the protein powder thickens up well after blending, the grassy and musty flavors come through, if you’re using water as your liquid. You definitely want to use a vegan milk, like almond milk, when using this protein powder.
It’s also not a protein powder you want to drink without fruit, because the result is a thin and chalky beverage. While it’s not a delicious protein powder, it’s not terrible, and it’s delightful with two bananas, one cup of almond milk, and one serving of Dr. Fuhrman Pro-Boost Superfood Powder Dietary Supplement. If I double up the protein powder to get 20 grams of powdered protein, the smoothie has an odd flavor to it, and then I’d have to add two more bananas and more almond milk, the fat content would be a bit high, and with four bananas, that would be excessive.
If you purchase Dr. Fuhrman’s protein powder, use the recipe below for a delicious tasting smoothie:
- 2 large frozen bananas, broken into 1-inch chunks
- 1 cup refrigerated almond milk, unsweetened
- 2 scoops protein powder (one serving size)
Place bananas, vegan milk, and one serving of protein powder (2 small scoops) in a small blender cup and blend until incorporated. Mix with either 2 tsp hemp seeds or 1 T whole chia seeds. I put the seeds in at the end because I don’t want to blend them, which muddies the taste of the smoothie. The addition of the seeds after the smoothie is blended, gives it a slight crunch. You can sip it or, slurp it off a large spoon, like I do.
