Optimal Plant Proteins is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and delicious! I've been using Jarrow's Plant Proteins for 5 months now almost every morning and love it! My favorite protein breakfast shake contains 2 scoops of this protein powder, a tiny bit of coconut oil, almond butter, cinnamon, lemon, avocado, wild blueberries, cranberries (just a few), almond milk and ice. Yummy all the way.
