This Is the New Must-Try Protein Powder

Plant-based foodies are blessed with tons of vegan protein powder options. There's hemp and soy and even pea-based protein blends—and now our favorite nut is finally landing a spot on this list, too!

Whipping up a plant-based protein shake to curb hunger and feed your muscles on the go may be easy, but choosing a powder is anything but. However Almond Pro's Almond Protein Powder is totally changing the supplement game with its innovative formula which is the first ever powder made with, you guessed it: almond protein. To create their product, the company uses their own pressurization method to naturally increase their almond's protein content while reducing the fat content. The resulting product is one that will pack your shake with a whopping 19 grams of protein, 6 grams of satiating fiber, and 14 vitamins and minerals per serving. As an added bonus, the blend is 100 percent organic and free of gluten, dairy, and soy, making it a safe choice for health nuts with a wide array of diet limitations.

But how does it stack up against its protein powder rivals? While whey-, soy-, and pea-based products may have more muscle-building protein, they don't contain a trace of fiber. Fiber-filled hemp protein puts up a fight with a greater amount of protein per serving than the almond protein powder, but the latter still beats it in the fiber department. Although higher in fat than the other options, the nutty alternative only contains heart-protective healthy fats (and none of the artery-clogging cholesterol that whey contains), which rounds out its macros to keep you slim and satiated. The bottom line: It's definitely a winning pick!

Wanna give this new product a try? Pick up a tub on Amazon, and add two scoops of the paleo-friendly powder (which comes in classic chocolate and vanilla flavors) and 12 to 14 ounces of water or your favorite milk to your blender. Then let 'er rip! In about 30 seconds, you'll have a delectable shake that's perfectly portable. And while you may be tempted to down your concoction as a post-workout snack, consider it an ideal pre-workout, too. According to a study in The Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, L-arginine-rich almonds can actually help you burn more fat and carbs during your sweat sesh. Talk about, a winning cocktail! And for those who aren't fans of this mildly sweet nut, sip on one of these All-Natural Vegan Protein Powders, instead!
