I am and have been passionate about only eating organically and couldn't believe that I was just grabbing any old snack so long as I saw the words "all-Natural" on the label. Now, I know better I know why to choose organic instead of all-natural (read more about why to choose organic not all-natural here) but when in a pinch, I was desperate. I already had a jug of protein powder at home but the extra 5 minutes sometimes just wasn't there to whip up something good.

A little about Orgain - They are a great company! Their plant-based line is RAW, Vegan, Gluten Free, Lactose Free, GMO Free, nothing artificial and it's Soy Free. Now that you know what it doesn't have...here is what it does have - Sprouted Brown Rice Protein, Chia Protein, Hemp Protein, Organic Fiber and only 4 grams of Fat Per Serving. They have a Vegan Line, A Kids Line, Nutritional Shakes, Protein Powders, Ready to go shakes and even a HIGH Protein Line with 25 grams of protein per serving!
Here is one of my favorite recipes that I make with the Orgain Powder - no worries, you can always just add water to 2 scoops and it still tastes great!
2 scoops of Orgain Creamy Chocolate Fudge - see below for variation
8 ounces of water or milk
1/4 cup of strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 banana (freeze it first for a milkshake like shake!)
1 teaspoon of Honey (not necessary)
If you are not using orgain - you can still enjoy the chocolate covered strawberry protein shake! You can follow the directions of your favorite protein powder or...
1/2 cup greek yogurt
1/2 banana (frozen is best!)
1/2 cup strawberries
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice)
You may ask..."why a banana in a chocolate covered shake recipe?" and "why frozen"! Let me tell you why, it is AMAZING! Freezing your banana over night then adding it to your shake gives it an "ice cream like" consistency and makes it rich and creamy.
You will see other recipes that have tons of ingredients and different additives to give you energy and fiber BUT you don't need to do that with Orgain. It already has great stuff in it!
