Vanilla Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder by Pure Goodness


I have a protein smoothie for breakfast just about every morning so choosing a protein powder that not only tastes good but is good for me is really important to me and I've tried quite a few of them.
However, I have never tried any protein powder quite like this Vanilla Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder by Pure Goodness that was sent to me to test out!
I wasn't sure what to expect since it's made from pumpkin seeds but I have yet to meet anything pumpkin or it's seeds that I didn't like so I figured I was probably going like this protein powder.  Not only do I like it I actually love it!  I have found myself grabbing for it every morning over all my other protein powders!
Let's talk smell and taste.  You can definitely smell pumpkin seed when you open the container and I personally think it smells really yummy.  However, I was surprised that it didn't really taste like pumpkin seeds.  It just has more of a general nut flavor and I got the Vanilla flavor so there is also a hint of Vanilla.  This protein powder is made with naturally nutrient-rich Styrian pumpkin seeds from Austira,  Apparently, the Styrian pumpkin seeds have a higher concentration of antioxidants, vitamins and unsaturated fatty acids than your normal American pumpkin seed, which is not so shocking.  The seeds are jam packed with protein and also contain 9 essential amino acids.  Not only does this Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder make for a great tasting smoothie but it also makes for really good protein pancakes!  Yum!!
What I really like about this Vanilla Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder by Pure Goodness is that it is Non-GMO,gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and vegan and paleo friendly.  Plus, it's free from artificial colors, flavors and preservatives.  Really, there is nothing that I don't like about this protein powder or the brand Pure Goodness.  They even donate 1% of sales to help provide nutritious food to communities in need across the US!
If you have been searching for a healthy, nutritious alternative to your normal protein powder I would give this one a shot.  They also make Hemp Seed Protein Powder but I haven't had a chance to try that one out yet.  However, I am almost done with my Pumpkin Protein so Hemp is next on my list to test out!
