Today was Day #13 of Chocolate Tea and Beverage Theme Weeks.

Nature's Plus Spiru-tein Chocolate High Protein Energy Meal was packaged as a powder that could be mixed with either water or the milk (or filk*) of your choice. The Nature's Plus line of "energy supplements" and vitamins is manufactured by Natural Organics Laboratories, Inc. (Amityville, NY).

The plusses: This mix was formulated with a Non-GMO Protein complex with spirulina and gluten-free, proteins (rice protein, pea protein and Non-GMO soy protein), and was vitamin and mineral enriched. It contained Dutch cocoa and was vegetarian and yeast free.

I mixed this powder up with water, and it tasted better than some other protein mixes I've had; although don't expect that it will come close to a chocolate milkshake in terms of flavor or texture.

*The word filk is a shortened version of "fake milk," referring to non-dairy "milks" - such as nut milks, coconut milk, soy milk, hemp milk, oat milk, etc.
