Cookies. With Cream. [Plant Fusion Giveaway + #WIAW]

by Sarah on February 6, 2013 · 133 comments

Sign I Am Not a Normal Person #1,200:

I don’t drink protein powder.

 I eat it.

cookies 'n' creme proats (protein oats) w. apricots, blueberries, apples, crumbled peanut butter toast crunch, sprinkles, and cocoa

So maybe I wasn’t the best person to review the newest flavor of Plant Fusion.But then again, when you see what I’ve done with it, maybe I was. :)

ice cream inspired protein powder calls for strawberry 'sauce,' sprinkles, and chocolate (covered amaranth)

Even though I must confess that I get unnaturally perturbed when companies misspell words on purpose, I forgave Plant Fusion for their use of creme instead of cream, simply because they added the French accent.*

*And I don’t know enough French to know whether it is spelled correctly or not.

we can discuss appropriate uses of apostrophes at a later date.

And gosh darn it, if you can make a protein powder that tastes all at once like everyone’s favorite mass-produced twist-and-lick cookie and the best kind of cookies and cream ice creamwhere there are not only huge chunks of cookie, but also cookie crumblies floating throughout–well, my Plant Fusion-obsessed heart stomach heart will forgive you a lot.

vanilla Stonyfield frozen Greek yogurt with cookies n' creme goop, fiber one chocolate squares, both cinnamon and peanut butter toast crunch, and previously frozen berries

I mean, this beautiful bowl of goop was like eating a s’more with peanut butter Oreos in lieu of Hershey’s bars and cookies n’ creme ice cream in place of the marshmallows.

cookies n' creme goop w. graham cereal, sprinkles, blueberries, kix, and a river of peanut flour

So, maybe I can’t judge how it tastes in a shake or a smoothie, but I can tell you it is dessert-worthy* delicious.

*Or any time of day-worthy…

pre-run bowl of cookies n' creme proats w. a deluge of PB2 goop, blueberries, apple blueberry granola, and graham ceral crumblies

As for the more traditional uses of protein powder, I’ll leave the testing of that up to y’all.

You see, Jenn, and all you vegan-protein-powder-loving ladies (and gents), not only do you get to drool over my crazy cookies and cream Plant Fusion creations, one of you can win some of your very own!

yes, i googled "wiaw february" to find the logo from last year.

After that description I feel like I need a cold shower.

I would make… proably one of my blended up cottage cheese creations so it would be like Oreo Cheesecake!

It would rock if they made a salted caramel mocha flavor.

I would mix it into everything!! Oatmeal, soy yogurt, banana ice cream….ummm yeah. I was very sad when you kept talking about this flavor but it wasn’t in stores!! This kinda made my night haha!! Next I do believe a mocha (or white mocha) flavor would be delicious -or cake batter :)

WHAT??! Plant Fusion has a cookies n’ cream (grr, “creme”)??! As if they don’t make vanilla and choco spectacularly enough! And if they were to come out with a cinnamon/cinnamon bun-type flavor in the future? Now THAT would be spectacular too! (Because seriously, what foodie doesn’t love cinnamon? And what human doesn’t love cinnamon buns??)

I feel you on the eating protein powder! And I’m so excited you will be representing them at blend.
I love laura’s idea of mixing it with cottage cheese. I used to love the mcd’s oreo flurry – I’d do something with kefir maybe and ice to mimic that.
I’d love to try this powder since you praise it so much! And has far as new flavors – I’m usually a plain jane vanilla person with my powders but a mocha one could be good!

I’d make a muffin with it. A cookies and cream extra proteiny muffin sounds good. I wish they’d come out with white chocolate flavor.

I’d definitely flood some Greek yogurt with the protein goop! Maybe some proats for breaky (who am I kidding, this will def happen). I hope they make a coconut cream flavor next! Not coconut creme…coconut cream :)

Oh my gosh I love protein powder. Okay, so technically I haven’t had it in a month or too because I can’t handle the ingredients. But that’s okay. I’ll still profess my love for things I can’t eat— Like Peanut Butter, and Bread. I would use protein powder to make my brother some protein-packed cookies. Or, maybe I would break and make a microwave protein bread… (Eh, let’s go with the brother answer). Most awesome flavors ever? Chocolate chip cookie dough or Cake Batter. Cake batter probably wins though.

Cookies and cream flavour would be fabulous in many creations but one of the first I’d try would be making vegan faux frozen yogurt. Obviously to be topped with blueberries ;) .

Call me boring but I’d hope for them to offer a Peanut Butter and Chocolate flavour.

I would definitely love to put it in my morning oatmeal!! Topped with some almonds, and coconut perhaps?! It would be super sweet if they made a cookie dough flavor. Then I would probably just eat it with every meal.

you know i am lucky enough to have tried this amazing flavor, but i would like to enter the giveaway for a class mate who has recently decided to lose weight and start building muscle. i actually gave her a sample scoop of this and she LOVED it. i know a lot of people struggle with “drinking” protein powder and i of course gave her some of our goop tips and told her to start by adding it to smoothies. every one deserves a little cookie protein love. <3

OMG! I would love to win this! I have been a loyal user of Plantfusion (i use it on a daily basis in one way or another ) since i started lifting weights and adopted a fit lifestyle a year ago. I have been stalking their website daily for the past month, waiting to see when the new flavor would be released…yep, I’ve got it bad…
I would use it to make a cookies and creme version of one of my clean, vegan, protein “pop tarts”.
I think a Tiramisu or Cinnamon Roll flavor would be awesome!
I am probably Plantfusion’s biggest fan. I love their product and rep the brand every chance I get. If they are looking for more ambassadors or product reviewers, PLEASE send them my way ( my instagram feed is FULL of my Plantfusion devotion/creations)!
