Protein lovin’

HEY friends!!

Got THE most exciting giveaway for you guys!! I’m sure you’ll pretty much all have heard of this company…SunWarrior_Blogger_Banner


Sun Warrior makes protein powders in three flavours, vanilla, chocolate and natural, and they all are:

  • 100% Raw Vegan

  • 85% Pure Protein

*Complete Amino Acid Profile

  • Hypoallergenic

  • Non-GMO, Gluten Free


So when Mike, a UK representative of Sun Warrior contacted me to ask if I was interested in sampling their products, I of course jumped at the chance! I’ve heard SO many good things about this company and their protein powders that I couldn’t pass this up!! *Disclaimer:* This is all MY own opinion!! Good or bad, I say what I think!



I used a vanilla sachet in yesterday’s overnight oats:DSC07853

Vanilla Protein Overnight Oats

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 sachet Sun Warrior vanilla
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup soya yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • Toppings: sliced banana and cinnamon


The jury’s still out on the overnight oats…but like many of you suggested, I might like a more doughy version! So I know what I’m trying next Wednesday! Winking smile Anyway, the Vanilla Sun Warrior was great! So vanilla-y and sweet (but with no added sugar-only Stevia…win!!) and didn’t leave a powdery taste either! Thumbs up! Thumbs up


Next up, I tried the natural.DSC07896


Sun Warrior products have the BEST nutritional stats!!DSC07897

25g protein?! WOW!! Surprised smile



I made a Green Monster with it for part of my afternoon snackage, topped with granola and cacao nibs. I LOVE how well Sun Warrior blends! Other cheap protein powders I’ve used in the past haven’t blended well AT ALL and went lumpy! But this was perfect Smile


And last but not least, the chocolate flavour…DSC07870

Chocolate PB Pumpkin Breakfast Smoothie (adapted from Gabriela’s recipe)

  • 1 c pumpkin
  • large banana
  • Chocolate Sun Warrior
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 c non-dairy milk
  • 1.5 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup plain cereal (optional)
  • DSC07875

Topped with muesli and cacao nibs for some crunch. SO good!! This smoothie is yummy and super-thick, and the Sun Warrior chocolate is my fave I think!! Open-mouthed smile I especially love it’s ingredients list: Whole Brown Rice Protein, Cocoa, Pectin, Xanathan Gum and Stevia. Simple, and no added sugar!!

  29. I follow your tweets!

  30. tweetings ….NOW! :)

  31. This is a crazy giveaway-I love Sunwarrior. Vanilla is my fav:)

  32. Wow, I want to win as my poor tired, marathon training legs need a bit more help recovering after long runs and I think this might just do the trick!


  33. in case you are shipping to germany, I WANT I WANT I WANT !! =)
    never commented by the way, but really enjoy your blog!

  34. another FABBO competition :-p
    I would like to win this as i have been more or less fully beggie for a while now and am always a little worried that i dont get enough protein in my diet.
    Something like this would give me that little extra kick i need! Plus it’d mean i had a “shameless” excuse to recreate some of those yummy looking eats you’ve posted above! bring it on!!!

  35. Exciting- I thought it was only available in the USA- didnt know you could get it in the UK. I would be interested to try it as I have read good things- I tried whey protein ages ago but it tasted weird! I wonder if they do sample packs.

  36. Oh my gosh – this is my dream give away right here! I've been wanting to try that stuff for so long – naything has gotta be better than the skanky cheap pea protein I use…

  37. And I already follow you on Twitter :)

  38. & I just tweeted :)

  39. OMG, that is a freakin AWESOME giveaway! I am slowly coming to terms with the fact that I'm going to have to shell out the cash for this if I want a decent vegan protein powder. There's only so long I can cope with the hemp / pea nightmare!

    Your blog is growing so well — really great work Emma :)

  40. Oh my gosh what a fabulous giveaway!

    I would LOVE to win some Sun Warrior because I've heard so many good things about the yummy taste/texture of it and I think I could make some amazing post-gym/run recovery smoothies with it! I've not had much luck with protein powders in the past, they either don't blend well or taste really chalky, but I've heard Sun Warrior does neither of those. If only it wasn't so expensive to get here!

  41. Oh, and I don't have a blog (or twitter, gah I'm so behind the times!) but please add an extra entry for me if that's allowed :D

  42. This is an exciting giveaway!!!
    I'd really like to try protein powder… I often make the trip to Holland & Barratt to get protein powder but I'm always worried I'll spend serious ££ on a powder that I won't like… so I always leave empty handed!

  43. Already following you on twitter!

  44. I’m a girl who likes her peanut butter, and in the morning unless I have over 6 tbsp of peanut butter (makes me feel sick), then I can’t even get 25 grams of protein! I’d love to try sunwarrior

  45. I’m already following you on twitter!

  46. Tweeted about the giveaway!

  47. I'm now following you on Twitter (jesspea)

  48. And I have also Tweeted about the giveaway!

  49. I would love to win the protein powder because I am trying to put on some weight for sports and I havent found a good protein powder to use yet!!

  50. I'd like to win the Sun Warrior because I think I've spent more on their products single-handedly than any other blogger! I used SW before it even entered the blog world and used to pay ludicrous amounts to get it shipped over from the US ~ I've been a Sun Warrior addict for four years and I credit any of my decent running performances to the inclusion of Sun Warrior in my diet, as I struggle to get good quality vegan protein from sources other than soy, which tends to bother my stomach in large quantities.

    I'm so jealous that SW contacted you! It's not surprising, as you'd be a far better representative for them than me, but dang, being able to promote Sun Warrior would be my dream!

    LOVE your uses of SW and recipes by the way. I need to try that pudding as soon as I can get my paws on some pumpkin. I'll probably be posting Saturday so will link back to you then.


  51. I'd love to win this! Because it's raw. And it's vegan. And the protein powder I'm using right now tastes like crap.

  52. I'm already following you on twitter…

  53. …and I tweeted about it.

  54. those looks really great! Looks like a good way to get more protein into a lot of different meals :)

  55. This is such an awesome giveaway! I’ve been lookin for a protein powder that isn’t chalky and actually tastes good. :)

  56. I don’t have a blog but I follow yours :)

  57. I would love to win this giveaway because I have been looking for a good protein powder for a while now and I've heard loads about this stuff in the blogworld! I follow you on twitter too!
