The Organic Protein Company were recently kind enough to send me some samples of their protein powder to try. Before we get into the recipe, I will just briefly explain a bit about the brand and their ethos, as there seems to be a plethora of protein powders on the market now, which can make it hard to choose the one that is right for you.
Seeing as this product is certified organic, the milk that is produced has the highest nutrient levels possible and is completely GMO free. Additionally, if you are concerned with animal welfare, the organic origins of the company means that the cows are reared in the best possible conditions and the company actually donates 25p to Compassion in World Farming for every pack of protein sold.
Furthermore, the protein is free from all artificial sweeteners and flavourings, which gives it quite a neutral taste and means that it is extremely versatile, as you’ll find from the recipe below.
