The Ultimate Chocolate Protein Powder

For a quick add to your morning smoothie, oatmeal or breakfast bowl, 
make your own protein powder using staples you may already have in your pantry. It's cost-efficient and much easier than you’d think. Our Ultimate Chocolate Protein Powder is packed with healthy essential fatty acids (EFAs) from chia and hemp, and it contains antioxidant-rich cacao powder. Paired with a cup of organic soy milk, it'll give you more than 20 grams of satiating protein. The powder can be used within a few days, or frozen in individual servings for up to 1 month.
