We recently got our hands on Naked Nutritions’ Grass-Fed Whey Protein Powder, Naked Whey, and are excited to share what we thought. The product is presented as a high-quality whey protein created from cows with a 100% grass-fed diet with nothing to hide. A promising start! We were also pleased to see that Naked Nutrition focuses on communicating product information on labels that are clean and straight to the point, ensuring that all the necessary information is clearly available.
Before we move on to our experience, we’re going to highlight some key elements that Naked Nutrition promotes on the product page as, “the Naked Difference.”

- Acid and Bleach-Free Processing
Naked Nutrition has more to say about their Naked Whey, but we’ll let you check out the product page to see for yourself.
Now, on to our experience with the product. Upon opening the container, we noticed that the powder is incredibly fine. It’s smooth and soft to the touch albeit a bit sticky or tacky. There was no strong smell or odor to the powder. We also tasted the powder straight from the container, and it didn’t leave any sort of aftertaste. So with a clean flavor slate, we decided to create one of our favorite shake variations.
- 2 Scoops of Orange Sorbet
- ⅓ Cup of Orange Juice
- A Splash of Soy Milk
- 2 Scoops of Naked Nutritions’ Grass Fed Whey Protein Powder
Toss it all in a blender and blend for about 30 seconds for optimal consistency. We tested Naked Whey using a shaker as well, and we preferred the texture when blended not shaken. Drink!
We have often found that, when it comes to protein powders, the biggest hurdle we come across is flavor and texture. Powders are often chalky, dry, and unappealing in taste. Naked Whey protein powder was neither of those.
We absolutely loved how light and airy it was once blended. The consistency was very good, and there were no chunks or clumping in the powder. We didn’t use strong flavors in the smoothie, and the mellow flavor of Naked Whey complimented our selected citrus flavors. Overall, our drink was light, not dense, and there was no heavy “milky” taste like some of the other whey protein powders we have tried.
We did find that, due to the fine texture of the powder, it does manage to clump and stick fairly easily to the walls of your cup. This might impact the portability for some, but if you plan ahead and use a good shaker than you should be set for your post-workout shake.
Overall, we found that Naked Nutritions’ Grass Fed Whey Protein Powder, Naked Whey a solid option for a whey protein powder. It mixes well and has a pleasant, mild flavor, making it a perfect option for your favorite smoothie or shake recipe. Especially if you use a blender.

We’re excited to try more of Naked Nutrition products and expect them all to be as high in quality as the grass-fed whey protein, Naked Whey.
