REVIEW: KOS Organic Superfood Plant Protein Powder

I have finally found a plant-based protein powder that I like!

I’ve talked about my goal of trying to increase my protein intake before, but I’ve had a hard time trying to balance taste, protein content, and cost when it comes to a vegan protein powder. I want it all, but my wallet says no. However, the KOS Organic Superfood Plant Protein Powder comes pretty close!

About KOS Organic Superfood Plant Protein Powder

I found the KOS Plant Protein Powder during a trip to Whole Foods, but it appears to be sold all over the place, including Target, Amazon, the KOS website, Kroger, the Vitamin Shoppe, and more. Flavor options include: Chocolate, Vanilla, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Salted Caramel Coffee, and an Unflavored choice. I ended up with Blueberry Muffin, which oddly enough, is not on the KOS website (as of writing), but it is on the Target site.

A serving is considered two scoops, which comes with 20 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, and a variety of vitamins, minerals, and adaptogens. Think spirulina, ginger, Lion’s Mane, etc. It also mentions a special digestive enzyme blend featuring amylase, lipase, and more. (I’m sorry the picture’s blurry. My phone did not want to cooperate…)

Curious about where the plant protein is coming from? It’s actually a protein blend of pea protein, flax seed, quinoa grain, pumpkin seed protein, and chia seed. 

The packaging claims that it’s made without soy, without dairy, without gluten, and without erythritol. But if you have any allergies, be sure to do your own research!

So, if you’re asking what’s the catch? It’s the price per serving. I bought a 15 serving container for a little over $31.00, so it comes out to about $2.00 a serving. I really would prefer something in the $1.00 – $1.50 range, so this one is more of a treat, rather than an everyday option for me.

How I Use the KOS Organic Superfood Plant Protein Powder

The packaging recommends mixing two scoops of the protein powder with 8-12 fluid ounces of water or a non-dairy beverage (like almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk) and either shaking it up or blending it. 

Personally, I don’t like mixing any protein powders with just water, so I do a combo. I find using 8 ounces of soy milk (with an additional 7 grams of protein!) and 4 ounces or water gives it a nice creaminess without being too thick. I usually add in a few ice cubes and throw it all in the blender.

I was extremely hesitant to go with blueberry muffin as a flavor, as I usually play it safe with a more basic vanilla, but I’m so happy I took the risk. It’s a nice sweet flavor without being weirdly sweet.

Final Thoughts on the KOS Organic Superfood Plant Protein Powder

Would I buy it again? Absolutely!

I would happily buy the blueberry muffin KOS protein again, though, I am also very tempted to try out the salted caramel coffee flavor.

However, I do still want to find a cheaper source of protein that I like. This is slightly more than I’d want to pay, but it does feature more than a run-of-the-mill protein powder. I’ll be keeping my eyes out for any sort of seasonal/holiday sales!
