Raw Sport

21 Dec 2018

 

 

 

Raw Sport by Revolution Foods is a vegan company that produces everything you need to fuel and replenish your workout and just to help you maintain an all round healthy lifestyle! 

 

Their products are natural and gluten-free and they sell products such as pre-workout powders, protein powders, BCAA's, electrolytes, super foods and many other vitamins to help improve your digestion, skin, boost energy, reduce stress and much more!

 

I have tried their Female Repair Protein & BCAA blends. The only small difference between the male and female protein powders is that the one for woman has added ingredients such as maca powder and sea buckthorn to help balance hormones, which I think is great! And those ingredients are also beneficial for men too.

 

They have also recently released their new "Energy" protein powders.

 

You can use the code "LAUREN20" for anything on their online store!

 

Their protein powders are also super affordable starting from a price of only £19.99 per 924g.

 

You can buy their products from their online store.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

1. Vanilla

The smell is so good, it smells caramel like! These protein powders are actually very smooth and mix very well, if you are using quite a bit then it will be a tiny bit floury when having it on it's own but nothing compared to other plant-based proteins on the market, so make sure you add a good amount of water/plant milk to protein if you drink it on it's own pre/post workout.

I like to add 1/4 plant milk to 3/4 water. You do get used to it though and the flavour is pretty damn good for how natural the ingredients are, can we also appreciate how good and clean their ingredients are?? They also have a perfect amount of sweetness with it having no added sweeteners besides stevia listed as the last ingredient. It is ok to drink just with water/plant milk but it works better in a smoothie and makes the smoothie taste 10 times better! I am pretty impressed with this protein and they do all of their flavours really well and natural tasting.

I love adding this to a smoothie pre or post workout and adding it to my smoothie bowls or açai bowls.

2. Vanilla Cinnamon

Lovely creamy vanilla flavour with a subtle hint of cinnamon. Vanilla and cinnamon go so well together and reminds me a bit of rice pudding!

3. Chocolate & Vanilla

Smells nice and chocolatey. It doesn't have a strong chocolate flavour, I guess because it is chocolate and vanilla so it wouldn't be a strong chocolate flavour, but still yummy if you love chocolate smoothies or shakes!

8.5/10

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Raw Banana

This flavour could have gone wrong and tasted quite artificial but Raw Sport use all natural ingredients so this flavour was really nice. It has that yummy natural banana taste but also reminds me of those yummy banana lollies. This one is also great if you feel like a banana milkshake.

8.5/10

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Toffee Fudge

Delicious toffee fudge flavour, not too strong or overpowering. Similar flavour to Salted Caramel, but I prefer this flavour on it's own in a shake, in a smoothie mixed with banan etc. It's quite sweet and the toffee fudge flavour becomes more subtle, this and the Salted Caramel both taste delicious in a smoothie but maybe the Salted Caramel wins for me. This one could also get sickly if you have too much.

See Salted Caramel below for a great smoothie recipe that also works great with this flavour.

6. Salted Caramel

Smells yummy, has a strong caramel smell.

On it's own this one has quite a strong caramel flavour. I found it too overpowring on it's own as a simple protein shake but in a smoothie with banana etc it's not as overpowing and tastes really yum! And it's not any saltier than the others, you could add your own salt your smoothie if you want!

This one could also become a bit sickly if you have too much.

A great smoothie idea with this one is: 1 frozen banana, 1 tbsp flaxmeal, 1tsp maca powder, pinch of pink himalayan salt, coconut water and almond milk, you can also add 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1/2-1 tbsp almond butter and a medjool date.

8.5/10

 

 

 

 

7. Peanut

Smells and tastes just like natural raw peanuts, rather than a peanut butter kind of flavour. I actually didn't mind this one, and it has a nice sweetness. This tastes so delicious in a smoothie with some cacao powder! It's quite sweet but when you add the cacao powder it balances the sweetness out well.

A great smoothie recipe with this is: 1 frozen banana, 1 tbsp coconut yoghurt, 1 heaped tsp cacao powder - option to add 1 tbsp flaxmeal, 1 tsp maca powder and some frozen blueberries for that extra health!

8. Wild Berry

Nice smell of berries, smells like summer.

Nice berry flavour not overpowering. On it's own in a simple shake I feel that it ends up losing it's natural berry flavour and has a slight unnatural or strong aftertaste. It liked it better in a smoothie with banana and frozen berries etc. because it loses that unnatural aftertaste and the berry flavours still come through. I am personally more of a vanilla kind of girl!

Energy Protein

 

 

 

 

1. Coffee

I love this flavour and the fact that it has added reishi which has loads of benifits. This has a nice, natural coffee flavour and not too strong. I normally take this protein around 30-45 minutes before a workout and it definitely gives me more energy and endurance without me crashing later or my blood suagr levels dropping.

A smoothie idea that I seriously recommend with this is: 1/2 frozen banana, 1 tbsp coconut yoghurt, 1 heaped tsp cacao powder, 1-2 tsp almond butter, pinch of pink himalayan salt, coconut water, plant milk and ice.

9/10

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Mocha

When having this on it's own with some plant milk and water in a shaker it has a nice, rich coffee flavour with a slight chocolate flavour. In a smoothie it tastes the same as the coffee flavour above but just with a bit of the chocolate flavour, which is well balanced with the coffee. You can even add more of your own cacao powder if you want an even chocolatey flavour and added health benefits!

9/10

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Blueberry

Smells like lollies! 

Another one that could have gone wrong and tasted artificial but it tasted really nice and natural! Lovely blueberry flavour and not overpowering. It turns into a really pretty blue colour probably thanks to the added blue spirulina so this would be great for making a pretty blue smoothie bowl or for decorating anything else. It could be used as food colouring!
