What makes my morning smoothie even better is knowing it's packed full of good-for-you ingredients.
I was sent a canister of All Pro Science's Complete Veggie Protein to try out. One way for me to know if a protein powder is worth it is is to see how it tastes in my smoothie. If it's smoothie-approved, then it's a winner.

I tried the Berry Blast, which has all of the additional benefits of Goji berry, Acai berry, and Blueberry fruits. All of them excellent sources of anti-oxidants.

APS passed with flying colors. Every single smoothie tasted great. What I really liked about APS is that my hunger didn't creep up on my around 10:00. The smoothie really satisfied me and kept me from feeling famished. To me, that's a rather important feature with a protein powder. Another one is to not be incredibly sweet and full of fillers. APS nailed it again.
Not only am I loving APS, my kids are too. We're reducing the gluten in our diets and focusing on increasing the veggie consumption. Somethings that's a real challenge in our house. However, with APS, I know my kids are getting a great source of the essential vitamins and nutrients. And they are happy with it!
