Chocolate Cherry Love Bites and Onnit Review

Y’all… I have fallen in love with a new protein powder.

I was sent some Onnit goodies through being an Ambassador with FitFluential.*

I had tried Onnit protein bars at Blend last year, however I didn’t get the chance to try the nut butters or the protein.

Honestly, I didn’t expect to like it as well as I did.  I usually find protein powders don’t have much flavor or they are chalky.

These are not chalky at all, and they are full of flavor!  In fact, you could just drink these on their own.

I have used both the proteins in multiple smoothies.  I love both, but the Cocoa and Maca is my favorite.  I’m a chocolate girl though!

The chocolate protein was the star of my Chocolate Cherry Love Bites!

I love the Earth Grown Nutrients Powerfood.  I can tell a huge difference in my energy on the days I use it.  I have been either shaking it up with water, or adding it to smoothies!

Their nut butters are to die for as well.  I’m a nut butter fanatic, and these did not disappoint.  The Walnut Almond Cashew butter is super drippy.  The Macadamia Cacao Cherry butter was thicker, and I loved eating it on toast and by the spoonful!

    • The protein powder is to die for girl! Thanks… I’m sure you could try to make them with another chocolate protein… or just hit up Onnit for some! 😉

  1. YUM! Those look so good! I remember trying the Onnit at Blend last year but don’t remember much more about it…I might have to give it another chance. Though I had a bar left from Blend and did NOT like that when i had it the other day…I could hardly get down the one bite I took. :-/

  2. I like making protein balls, but I don’t have a favorite protein powder. I use ingredients like nut butters for the protein. Thanks for posting the recipe. I like to try new ones!
