The new plant-powered protein powder in my life.
Edit: 12/5/12 I recently had a canister that tasted a bit off (bitter, smoky-ish) compared to how lovely the previous ones had been. Then, my mom said the same thing, and a reader of my blog said the same thing… had a bitter experience. ;) Well, go figure I’d rave about something and then there might have been an issue in their quality control. I’ve had foods with shilajit in them and I get the sense that maybe they had a batch with too much of that in it? Not that that would be terrible since its reputation is great but it changes the taste and then that changes the experience. Or maybe they forgot the stevia? Not sure. Still, I wanted to tell my readers about that. Since I have multiple canisters though, I opened another and it was great like usual.
Edit: 12/12/12 I heard back from Longevity Warehouse and it turns out I was right. They used a different shilajit in a batch, and although it was high quality, it changed the flavor. It seems they’re back to using the standard shilajit they normally use. Whew!
There’s a new protein powder on the block that I’m regularly buying now, and I’m a raving fan. (That’s an understatement.)
If you haven’t heard of Immortal Machine, then you’re missing out. It’s a fabulous new vegan protein powder that knocks it out of the park in flavor and health promoting properties.
It’s so good on its own that I usually just mix it up with water and it tastes like fudgescicles. Or, I make it with iced organic peppermint tea … Thin Mint Cookies, anyone? That’s probably my favorite way to have it (mom’s favorite way, too). In fact, I’ve turned quite a few friends and family on to Immortal Machine and the response is always the same. “Whoa! That’s awesome. I’ve never had a protein powder that was so good!”
Even though this protein powder needs no hiding and it’s fabulous with just water or iced peppermint tea blended in… being the chef that I am, I’ve played with other recipes for fun. I heard tales of its deliciousness with nut milk and they were true – creamy and dreamy. I added Chinese Five Spice once, too. That was good. I also knew it’d be brilliant stirred into chia pudding and porridge… yup. In fact, adding this to my Longevity Chia Porridge recipe is smart. I’ve also used Immortal Machine in a medicinal-energizing-herbal-tonic elixir by blending it with soaked goji and longan berries. Whoa. That was intense, in a most amazing way. I was feeling the power all day. I also love blending Immortal Machine into warm drinks and it’s like hot chocolate. It seems the options of deliciousness are endless.
Those variations are all fun, but I think my favorite way is with plain ol’ water or iced organic peppermint tea (I’ve always been, and will forever be, a mint chocolate girl). Friends, I’m telling you, as it bears repeating… this stuff is a-mazing.
I love that Immortal Machine is made of healthy hemp protein powder, because it’s a clean, plant-powered protein source. And, of course, it’s loaded with raw chocolate, one of my favorite ingredients. But, that’s not all. There’s the immortal-magical-mix that makes up the rest of it… there to help me live forever.
Did I say that I love Immortal Machine? I do. Seriously.
To anyone who hasn’t tried David Wolfe’s Immortal Machine… it’s unlike any protein powder I’ve ever had. The flavor is unique, rich, chocolatey, satisfying, magical, and fun. I look forward to every sip. Oh, and Kamea, my toddler, loves it.
Immortal Machine isn’t on the cheap side, but neither are the ingredients. Even though it appears that 1/3 cup is a serving size (if I remember correctly based on the directions from the container), I use 3 to 4 tablespoons per shake to stretch it out a bit more. Heck, you could just use 1 to 2 tablespoons to amp up your raw nut milks while still reaping some extra health benefits.
