CHOCOLATE AND RASPBERRY CHIA PUDDING
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 2 servings
6 Tbsp chia seeds
2 cups coconut milk beverage or any non-dairy milk
6 large squares dark chocolate (yield about 2 Tbsp melted + 4 Tbsp grated chocolate to decorate)
½ cup fresh or frozen raspberries + a few raspberries to decorate
In a small pot melt about 4 chocolate squares over low heat (should yield about 2 tablespoon melted chocolate). Add 1 cup of the coconut milk beverage or your favourite non-dairy milk and stir until combined making sure the mixture doesn’t become too hot. Turn off the heat and let it cool to the room temperature.
In the meantime, add the raspberries and 1 cup of coconut milk beverage or your favourite non-dairy milk to a blender and puree until smooth. Pour the mixture into a jar or a glass container and add 3 tablespoons of chia seeds. Mix well until all the chia seeds are covered with the liquid. Cover with a tight lid and place in the refrigerator.
Once the chocolate mixture is cool, pour it into a jar or a glass container and add 3 tablespoons of the chia seeds. Mix well until all the chia seeds are covered with the liquid. Cover with a tight lid and place in the refrigerator. Keep the chia seeds in the fridge over night or for at least 8 hours.
Once ready to prepare the pudding, check the consistency of the chocolate chia. If you find it too thick add 2 or 3 tablespoons of the milk of your choice and mix well.
Divide the chocolate chia in half and place each half into 2 small bowls or dessert glasses. Divide the raspberry chia in half and place on top of the chocolate chia.
Grate the remaining 2 squares of the dark chocolate using a grater or shave it with a knife. To decorate the chia pudding, add about 2 tablespoons of the shaved chocolate and a few raspberries to each dessert glass.
This dessert keeps well in the fridge for up to 10 hours. This recipe makes 2 puddings about 1 cup each. You can also make 4 mini-puddings about 1/2 cup each.
This looks delicious and amazing! I would add protein powder! To make it protein rich Raspberry Chocolate Chia Pudding!
I will definitely try this!
The best part about not being vegan is it can take this delicious recipe and add any protein I want! Do I want a quick uptake? Then I’ll use whey. Do I want a slow uptake? I’ll use casein. Do I want to keep it vegan? I can use plant/rice/hemp protein. Do I want to keep it organic grass fed? Then I’ll use grass fed organic whey etc…
The recipe is open to your lifestyle!
Sun Warrior Classic Protein – Raw Vegan – Chocolate
Warrior Blend fuses and multiplies the power of several rich, raw protein sources into a smooth, great tasting, and revolutionary proprietary formula that is overwhelmingly superior to the individual components alone. This dynamic fusion, along with a cold extraction process, creates a unique, raw, plant-based protein with a complete amino acid profile exceptionally high in Arginine, Lysine, Leucine, and branched chain amino acids.
The next generation in raw, plant-based protein is here, breaking through the constraints of other protein powders. Warrior Blend is an easily digestible, nutrient filled superfood perfect for anyone who wants to amplify their health and fitness levels. Best of all, it tastes phenomenal!

WARRIOR BLEND is a green product and is suitable for any diet or lifestyle (NOT JUST FOR VEGANS)! Our natural, raw process is free of solvents, GMOs, radiation, artificial colors, and preservatives.
The smell is horrendous!
The ingredients aren’t strange I wonder why it smells so bad! The taste wasn’t great but the aftertaste tastes like rice and isn’t bad. You don’t need a chaser after it. So far it’s the leading tasting vegan protein, which isn’t saying much, but as an alternative to whey it’s good.
Sun Warrior Warrior Blend Vanilla
Smells good and the taste wasn’t bad. Kind of like old dry rice. It’s a much different taste then Whey Protein and I have to get used to it. Will I use it in place of Whey? Hell no! I need to enjoy my post workout protein!
However; when people only use one food for extended periods they tend to build up immunities toward it and sometimes develop allergies toward it. I found that by eating so much peanut butter in my life, I now occasionally break out in hives. I don’t know how my body reacts toward Whey, sometimes I get gassy. By rotating my proteins lately from whey to natural whey to vegetable and back. I have felt much more healthy. I am also seeing muscle and strength gains. Fat loss however; is slowing.

Full Description and Detailed Information
Always raw, vegan, and delicious
A great tasting plant-based protein with a silky smooth texture that blends easily without the chalky or grainy consistency found in other vegetable based protein powders
Created with a low temperature, natural enzyme process that uses neither chemicals nor acid hydrolysis
Free of gluten, solvents, GMOs, radiation, artificial flavors, artificial preservatives, or artificial colors
Naturally rich in vitamins and minerals, and other essential nutrients such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, phosphorous, iron, and potassium
Easily digested by children, the elderly, and adults
Increases absorption and effectiveness of vitamins and minerals
One of the best protein powders available for any lifestyle, not just vegan or vegetarian
Brown rice protein powder contains all nine essential amino acids that the body cannot synthesize but still needs in order to produce all the muscle tissue, enzymes, and hormones we require to survive. Rice protein, unlike other vegetable proteins, isn’t lacking in any of these key building blocks for protein with a balanced amino acid profile comparable with whey and much better than soy.
Whey and soy both have problems with allergies and sensitivities. Whey is made from dairy byproducts and anyone with lactose sensitivities can have problems. Unfortunately, they aren’t alone. Many people who do not have any problems with dairy can still experience gas, bloating, and digestive issues. Soy contains phytoestrogens that mimic the human hormone and cause problems. Soy allergies are also very common.
Rice, on the other hand is extremely safe and mild on the digestive system and very hypoallergenic. Rice is the perfect source for protein that won’t upset stomachs, result in bloating, or cause dangerous allergic reactions.
Rice protein is safe for vegans and vegetarians who want to avoid animal products like found in whey, casein, and egg proteins. But they aren’t the only ones to benefit. Rice protein isn’t just for vegans, but supplies ample protein and complete amino acids for anyone at any activity level or with any lifestyle.
As a complete protein, Sunwarrior’s Classic Protein is ready to rebuild and repair muscle after workouts. Rice protein is a little slower to digest than whey, but that makes it a good pre-workout supplement and a good protein for endurance athletes.
Protein creates a thermic effect, heating up the body and literally burning through more calories than other foods. This is because protein requires additional energy to digest, so you burn more for hours after eating it. Lean protein sources, like rice protein, make a healthy part of any weight loss plan.
The smell is also horrendous!
But surprisingly it tastes good! Would I use it as a whey alternative, yes.
A Powerful Raw Natural Detoxifying Electrolyte for Stamina and Well-Being
Liquid Light is what we like to call “Mineralized Solar Energy”, a raw, plant-based fulvic acid and liquid mineral complex created by nature. The minerals were captured by ancient plant life, free of modern pollution and contaminants, fulvic acid was produced by beneficial microbes, and the complex is extracted from an ancient, undisturbed plant deposit using pure cold water. This creates a liquid supplement that contains one of the most powerful nutrient transporters found in the natural world.
Liquid Light Provides:
Powerful polyelectrolytes produced by nature*
Over 72 trace minerals and elements complexed with Fulvic Acid*
Improved absorption and assimilation of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients*
I can’t say I wasn’t scared to try it, but it wasn’t that bad. I downed it and then drank some water.
A Raw Fortified Fulvic Acid and Silver Ion Complex for a Maximized Immune System
Immune Shield is a natural fulvic acid and mineral complex that is fortified with silver ions. This complex provides the most powerful silver for digestion and assimilation. The presence of silver ions, combined with fulvic acid, provides a revolutionary form of silver to assist the immune system. These molecules provide a more efficient delivery system to safely provide silver ions in high amounts (over 50 ppm) without the dangerous building up of excessive silver particles within the body’s tissue. This fortified complex delivers the maximum level of benefit, protection, and performance.
Immune Shield delivers micro ionic silver and 71 trace minerals into all fluids, tissues, and cells to assist the immune system in repelling and fighting foreign invasions*
Ionic sized silver is smaller and more absorbable than colloidal silver
Can be taken daily for immune support or every 20 to 30 minutes at the onset of any symptoms
Immune Shield with fulvic silver wasn't bad, I think I like this one a tad better taste wise.
**Update** April 27th 2014
Let me start my saying I absolutely hate green drinks! Except the wheatgrass shots at the gym. They aren’t bad. So; I grabbed a tube of the Sunwarrior Supergreens
With extreme hesitation! It made a full 12oz glass of supergreens that smelled like raw sewage (as all green drinks do!) BUT! surprisingly it was the best tasting green drink I ever had! I think it was due to the Barley, wheat, oat grass and yuca (not green and potato like root) in it.
Here I go subjecting myself again to things I don’t want to eat in the name of science and my readers!
I am a big proponent of varying your protein sources! Whey Isolate, Whey Concentrate, Soy, Egg, Various lean meats: Turkey, Chicken, Beef, Lamb, Veal, as well as gamey meats like: Bison, Ostrich, Wild Boar, Pheasant etc… Well; now I am having Vegan Protein just for you! Vega, one of the leading companies in Vegan protein has a great line of products and I am about to have their:
Vega Sport Performance Protein Chocolate flavor.
A complete multi-source, alkaline-forming, plant-based protein powder blend, featuring 5,500mg of BCAAs and 5,000mg of glutamine per serving, Vega Sport Performance Protein is formulated to:
Improve strength and exercise performance
Repair and build muscles
Reduce recovery time between training
The recent innovation to Vega Sport Performance Protein comes from the addition of SaviSeed (sacha inchi) protein, a rich, plant-based source of the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan is a key component of serotonin production(1). Serotonin—the feel good hormone—helps with the mental aspect of recovery, so you’ll keep the drive alive and be motivated to train again. Take Vega Sport Performance Protein within 30 to 90 minutes of your workout or throughout the day to meet your individual protein needs to recharge and repair so you can do it all again, sooner.
For optimal results, use in conjunction with Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator.

It’s 25g of protein with 5,000 mg of BCAA’s and 5,000 mg of Glutamine
It’s protein blend consists of:
Peas, Saviseed?, Sprouted Whole Grain Brown Rice Protein and Alfalfa Protein.
It also helps you become Alkaline!
Who would have figured we could make protein powder out of rice, peas and alfalfa? I’m sure Spanky and Buckwheat didn’t! I’m sure they can make protein powder out of Buckwheat too!
Ok here it goes: it mixes fairly easy with a spoon, it smells horrid! It doesn’t taste bad, it absolutely doesn’t taste like chocolate! It’s got a weird taste! I can taste the pea, but it is tolerable.
Do I enjoy it? No! That’s important for me, especially when I am on a cut! I need to enjoy my protein on a restricted calorie intake!

Did I get more endurance: no

BCAAs are much better in my opinion.
It tasted only like its #1 ingredient which was dates. If you like dates (I don’t) then you will love it! I didn’t taste raspberry or much of anything else. To me it was like date paste. My father would love it.

Also — Please do not mix with hot liquids or use in cooking as this will damage the deep nourishing bioactive power of Whey Natural! USA ® . A word of caution. When you purchase whey protein products that have been pasteurized or have been used in baking (whey protein cookies), you need to know that you are not getting the full benefit of bioavailable amino acids that you do with Whey Natural! USA ® !
Why is Whey Natural USA Whey Protein Uniquely Different Among Protein Supplements?
Because it brings to you what other protein supplements could only hope for. Yes, there may even be a few other grass pasture whey proteins on the market, but none of them – whey proteins or any other proteins – utilize the uniquely special natural science formulation techniques that our Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein is created from.
The power and potency of Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein lies in carefully retaining the original, natural power structure of whey protein, to ensure its quality and deliver it as close to nature as possible.
Our highly experienced natural food scientists have conceived a totally new way to deliver the highest level of the power of natural whey protein to you.
Natural grass pasture whey protein’s raw power as one of nature’s perfect superfoods delivers tremendous benefits, but only when it’s carefully brought to you by Whey Natural! USA ® ’s all natural Chill-Right™ formulation technology process.
Chill-Right ® Technology comprises each step of bringing what we believe is the finest protein on the planet to you. And only Whey Natural! USA ® has this very special industry first natural science process. In time, some may imitate, but none will ever duplicate.
Chill-Right ® Technology
Beginning with all natural Grass Pasture milk, to our microbial safe cool pasteurization process, unique separation of the milk whey component, Nature Blend™ non-instantized flavor blending, as well as low oxygen formulation, vacuum system environment from start to finish and the highest quality GMP certified packaging — our industry first Chill-Right ® Technology is unequaled in the protein supplement marketplace.
What this brings to you is an entirely new, real and unrefined protein supplement breakthrough – a protein superfood – that outperforms and provides the power and deep nourishment that others may claim for their protein’s – but can’t truly deliver on because they simply do not have the natural science to do so.
And perhaps best of all, Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein is indescribably delicious, and one of the healthiest indulgences on earth!
The Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein Difference
If you’ve never taken a protein supplement or are currently taking one, you owe it to yourself to experience the Whey Natural! USA™ Difference. A difference in how you feel, look, perform and recover from a hard day or a hard workout. Once you try it, we believe you won’t ever want to be without it. Perhaps a bold sounding statement — but we ask that you be the judge. The prove-it-to-yourself results will tell you everything you need to know.
Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein is everything a protein supplement should be — and so much more. With Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein, we are changing the way people perceive a protein supplement. Yes, Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein is strong, and yes, the Muscle Crowd loves us, but it’s not just muscles or meeting your daily protein needs. No, not any more.
And importantly, the comparison is not merely how many grams of protein is contained per serving. Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein richly provides broad spectrum life building benefits that so many of our customers have come to believe in.
Glorified Cake Mix Powders
Regarding other proteins, ask yourself, “Wait a minute, what am I getting? What am I putting in my body? Why are they charging me so much money for something that is clearly inferior to Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein?” And it’s 100% true. Most protein supplements are nothing more than “glorified cake mix powders.” Sure, there may be some protein’s that may taste good (but still most likely the refined and de-natured kind), but you’re also getting a lot of junk you didn’t bargain for such as artificial sweeteners, artificial flavorings, chemicals and, preservatives. Basically — overly processed, refined, de-natured junk. And yes, some proteins are fairly good that use natural sweeteners or no preservatives, but we believe none can stand up to the power and all natural goodness of Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein. You see, having some of the good, but still a lot of the bad from traditional harsh processing does not make a great protein.
Cold-Processed: Essentially Meaningless
And, please be aware of protein companies that claim their proteins are “cold-processed”, “cool processed” or something similar – as this term is meaningless – since they had to high heat pasteurize the milk whey even before they dried and powderized the protein. Result: any so-called “cold-process” they may have used at that point was essentially meaningless since the bioactive nature of the milk whey was killed during high heat pasteurization. Please understand this very important distinction.
Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein is the magnificent result of over 30 years of passion that brings you an incredible proprietary protein superfood.
Life Building Nutritional Powerhouse
Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein is a life building nutritional powerhouse. No other protein supplement can claim its level of natural purity or it’s biologically active, naturally rich nutrition profile. We believe it’s the only choice if your goal is to put the best in your body.
Even though Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein was not specifically designed as an Athlete’s Protein Formula, it has been used successfully by athletes from all areas of sports performance:
Football, baseball, basketball, track & field, swimming, gymnastics, golf, tennis, ironman/triathalon – as well as for anyone who works hard, plays hard and needs the energy and regenerative power of truly natural whey protein to build and repair muscle, bolster their immune systems and live life to its fullest.
The Big Muscle crowd loves our Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein, too – because it targets the development of lean muscle tissue like no other protein on the market! However, it’s incredibly wide ranging health benefits are the true strength of Whey Natural! USA ® Whey Protein that so many health conscious, high performance people from all walks of like are looking for.
Whey Natural! USA ® has gone to great lengths to provide the ultimate quality, truly all natural protein supplement for its customers because it wants individuals to consume the most naturally pure, most naturally powerful protein for health and high-performance living needs.

**Update** March 24th 2014
Natural Protein Review:
Ingredient Profile: 10/10
I had 2 servings of Chocolate Whey Natural USA today. Surprisingly; it was one of the best Natural Proteins I have ever tasted! I would say W.N.USA & Body Logix are tied in taste!
Stay Tuned for Vanilla and a natural no color added Strawberry!
The Strawberry was great! It had a subtle strawberry taste almost like strawberry quick.
The vanilla was my least favorite. It wasn’t that bad, but it had a almost maple syrup taste.
Buy this stuff the chocolate and strawberry are great and no artificial flavors or colors!
I wish I had a whole tub, so I could see if the benefits they claim are real, with a few packets the only thing I could see was taste and Mixability. Which were both great!!
Fortified Formula™ is a whey protein formula derived from a grass fed, free range cows, which are never treated with antibiotics or bovine growth hormones. This formula is designed for muscle and strength building. Fortified is a safe, all-natural mass builder. Fortified Formula™ may also decrease your hunger and increase your energy.
Phenylalanine and tyrosine added to enhance muscle growth.
Leucine and isoleucine, key BCAAs may increase muscle volume, strength and synthesis.
Low glycemic index cherry powder for sustained energy.
Our newest addition to the SFH Whey Family. We have taken two great products (SFH Daily Balance & In-Race) and created one formula to use anytime (except post workout). SFH FUEL is made for everyone.
The ultimate anytime protein to fuel your daily needs. SFH FUEL combines non-denatured whey protein derived from A2 milk (from grass-fed, free range cows), coconut fat (MCTs) and apple pectin (a mixture of medium glycemic carbohydrates in a matrix of natural fiber).
Apple Pectin: is a complex carbohydrate rich in water soluble fibers. The fibers help to slow the absorption of high glycemic carbohydrates and sugars.
MCTs (medium chain triglycerides): are high energy fats. They are never stored and are burned as a fuel to produce 4-5x more energy than a sugar molecule and do not spike the release of insulin. These fats are broken down to ketone bodies which are the preferred fuel for our brains and hearts.
They both weren’t bad, I like the additives Fuel has Apple Pectin and Fortified has Cherry Powder. You can’t taste either, but it is cool it’s in there. I wish you could taste a little cherry in it that would be awesome! No one has cherry flavor. Cherries are supposed to contain something that helps burn fat.
The Fuel clumped a little in water and was hard to mix and it made me gag when I got a mouthful of dry powder clumps! But the flavor wasn’t bad.
Still the star of SFH is their Fish oil! Order the Omega-3 Oil and if you need protein pick one of their many options! They each ave a beneficial additive!
