Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Protein Energizer starts our day This is the best protein drink we've found, and in our family we drink it for breakfast almost every morning. We like that it is an all-natural protein drink that mixes with milk or almond milk. We like its yummy chocolate taste, and the energy boost from green foods & herbs. And we especially appreciate that it protein power doesn't come from soy (at 14 g of protein, that's a pretty decent breakfast for me; my muscle-building husband often doubles up to boost his protein#. Drawbacks: Texture-wise, it's just a bit chalky and doesn't blend well #easily remedied with shaker jar, a couple of ice cubes, and/or a blender) As far as protein supplements go, this one's a bit on the pricier side--although not break-the-bank pricey, and certainly a better value overall than the daily Starbucks breakfast habit it's replaced for us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply the Best Available When I walk into a grocery store, contemplate the menu at a restaurant or face a vending machine, I remind myself that I am an Alien with a delicately balanced physiology and high performance capacity. I remind myself that what passes for food on this planet is often not what it seems. So, to keep me going, I go to high quality supplements. And of all the protein powders I have tried, this one serves me best. It is rice based. Pea protein has more protein per serving, but have yet to find one that doesn't taste awful, so Rainbow Light is the hands down winner. This product is frequently 'out of stock' and I hesitate to give it another great review because it will only make this problem worse. But can't help myself... it is that good. More expensive than most though. Not just 'protein powder' this mix contains co-factor herbs, etc that also nourish and strengthen. Because this is so, it is important to shake the container before each use to blend the ingredients. Easier to transfer this packet packed powder into a large jar and use it from there. More efficient, easier to seal and shake. October 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by best of the lot Protein powders are not the best tasting or best looking thing around- but this is the best for me. I really do get energized by drinking this in the morning, especially if I add an Ola Loa joint repair. Be careful of explosions when shaking this combo- release the air every 13 shakes otherwise you will wear the drink instead of eating it. Another great way to eat it is in yogurt with nuts- the texture isn't great but the flavor is wonderful. The nuts assist with the texture. Also a wonderful addition to fruit smoothies.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Taste/Texture is horrible I really wanted to like this product as it seamed to be a excellent choice but the taste and texture are horrible and I could not get it down. Disappointed. December 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Rainbow Protein Energizer! Looooove this product! I do not consumer wheat or dairy. The selection of protein powders out there is a mind field. This is the best alternative I have found. May 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by YUMMY Love this protein powder!! great with ice, frozen fruit, sugar free pudding mix, banana's, astragulas & of course meal replacement powder!! Never could eat breakfast before, now i drink it!! May 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product, excellent price! I LOVE this inexpensive, high nutrition chocolate protein powder product. I was inspired to buy some after trying a sample of the vanilla. The chocolate flavor is rich and tasty, without being overpowering. I was especially happy the powder is LOW CARB and so, for me, non-addictive. I am unable to use certain protein powders or bars as they are so sweet they trigger addictive eating. A scoop of this in a blender shaker is a great snack (and I sometimes add a scoop of chia seeds and some raw cacao nibs and Raw Perfect Food if I want more of a meal replacement). I recently used this product (with raw almond butter, flax and other seeds, like sunflower and pumpkin, raw cacao nibs, and ground stevia) to make some raw protein food bars. They were so good! Love, love, love this product (and the chocolate flavor, too). July 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by delicious this is my favorite protein powder. it dissolves easily in water and tastes delicious. I appreciate that it is not overly sweet. March 23, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Impressive Ingredients I do not particularly like the taste or color (somewhat green supposedly from the Spirulina) of this product when mixed alone in water, but I have found that that it is very good when I mix it with a vanilla whey protein. It has a unique high fiber content that is often not found in other protein powders, and it has list of other impressive ingredients that give it an advantage over most. November 3, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nasty taste I hate to leave a bad review, especially because I love Swanson, but I have tried several different protein powders including egg white, pea protein, whey and spirtutein. This is by far the worst tasting with the most awful consistency. I could not swallow it. Tasted like I would imagine chalkboard dust to taste! :( July 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Meal Replacement Shake I am on a candida diet and was looking for a meal replacement shake that I could have to just grab and go. I found Rainbow Light Protein Energizer and was skeptical at first, but I have already been through 3 bags of the chocolate and am on a vanilla bag now. They are tasty and good for me. I have them with 16 oz of brown rice milk (the directions say to put in 8 oz of liquid). I feel full and have energy to last me to the next meal. I would definitely recommend this product. Yum!! January 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great taste, satisfies hunger for hours Great product. Mix with rice protein or jarrow fermented soy essence or greens for satisfying meal. April 14, 2010
