Skoop B-Strong Plant Protein + Giveaway {CLOSED}

August 1, 2014

I got the opportunity to try out Skoop Plant Protein Powder, so I have a review for you guys! I use plant protein all the time, because my tummy can’t really handle whey. I consume whey sometimes, specifically in the form of quest/protein bars, but then I know I’ll usually suffer a bit. Needless to say, protein powder is something I don’t think it’s worth the aftermath, so I stick with plant protein. I’m always on the lookout for new powders, because although I’d rather eat my food, I do like to make protein bars, pancakes, waffles, muffins, and I like to use it in a pinch.

I was sent the viva-vanilla flavor, and the bag immediately caught my eye with all of the fun information about all it has to offer. Some facts about B-Strong:

  • B-Strong contains 160 calories, 16 g of protein, and 6 g of fiber. It can be used as a snack, post-workout treat, or meal replacement.
  • B-Strong is a plant-based protein powder that promotes a three-stage process to help your body absorb nutrients, build muscle, and recover quickly.
  • B-Strong contains prebiotics that promote a happy belly and help the gut absorb macro and phytonutrients throughout your day.
  • It is a complete protein, which means it has all the essential amino acids that promote the growth of lean muscle tissue! <—This is awesome.

I like that the ingredients are wholesome, and they also include vitamins, minerals, omegas, prebiotics, and even mediterranean fruits. Never seen that in a protein powder before!

The only thing that some people may not like about this, is the macros. I’ve never seen a protein powder that has more carbs than protein. I know a lot of people look for that high protein content in a powder, so it is something to keep in mind! I usually have a good amount of carbs post workout, so it works fine for me.

And the full ingredient list is as shown above. A ton of good stuff in there!

They also sent me some little boost shots, which reminded me of the extras you can order at jamba juice which I thought was pretty cool. They have a sweet greens, and a chocolate  one, so you can use them in two different types of smoothies.

They have a ton of benefits and good ingredients in them as well, so just some extra nutrients!

  As for the TASTE? Which is the most impotent after all. I’d give it an A+ ! I loved the texture and the taste. It wasn’t chalky AT ALL and didn’t taste like dirt or grass, which you often find with plant-based proteins. Win! It also had a lighter consistency to it, similar to whey, whereas plant proteins are usually super dry and dense. I absolutely loved it. If you want to know more about Skoop, you can check out their website, twitter, instagram, and blog! Now, want to win a bag of your own?! The winner will receive a 30 serving bag as well as a blender bottle. Heck yes!

      I use my plant proteins every night in my frosty protein milks I make in my single serve blender cup. Just almond milk, ice, water, and PROTEIN!

    1. I used to get all crazy with protein powder but now I just enjoy an ice cold shaker bottle of coconut or flax milk and shakeology or plant protein. I would LOVE to try this kind – esp since I have never heard of it!!!!! 🙂

    1. My favorite way to use protein powder is in the form of baking. I always add it to my muffins, breads, desserts, and even savory items! I recently was testing out making hummus with cauliflower instead of chickpeas and added 1/2 a scoop of protein powder to make it more “grainy” and it came out perfect! I love how versitle this stuff can be! Liked on facebook and twitter!
