Kura Smoothie Protein Powder Review & Giveaway

I've been testing out several different protein powders since last summer.  I was not a breakfast eater at work and would be starving by lunch.  I now love filling up on a protein-packed shake for breakfast.  I enjoy my shake on my way into work or at my desk.  They are also great for moms that are on the go.  I've tried products all over the market and in various price ranges.  I recently tried Kura Smoothie Protein Powder (HERE).  I was sent the following flavors to try:  chocolate, vanilla and berry.

I mixed each flavor with almond milk and a banana.  Each flavor is already packed with fourteen grams of protein, vitamins and minerals, as well as probiotics and prebiotics, Omega-3's and is GMO free.  Their products are also gluten-free and no artificial sweeteners.

If you are looking for an overly-sweet protein shakes, I found that these weren't as sweet.  And like many protein shakes, they frothed up better with a banana and some ice mixed in the blender.  I mix all of my smoothies in a blender versus a blender bottle.

Little Diva and Little Dude have also been enjoying an occasional protein shake before school.  They really liked the chocolate flavor with a banana on their way out the door.  It's so easy to whip up a batch for the entire family and fill up to-go cups.  Chocolate would also be great with some peanut butter or Nutella.

Were you once an Orange Julius fan??  Give this a try.  Kura suggests mixing 1 scoop/packet of the vanilla flavor with 1 cup of Berry yogurt; 1/3 cup of orange juice; 1/3 cup of unsweetened almond/coconut milk.

For a Coco-Lemon Berry smoothie, try mixing 1 scoop/packet of the Berry powder with 1/2 cup of coconut water; 1/2 cup lemonade and 1/4 cup ice.  This would be so refreshing poolside.

You can shop for Kura products online and on Amazon.com or their products are available at Sprouts and Whole Foods in the South West.
