should I not mix frozen fruit (blueberries and bananas specifically) with things like brown rice protein powder?
I get not mixing fruits with nuts/nutmilks... I've stopped doing that, but the powdered proteins confuse the beJesus out of me!
In case you're wondering what brown rice protein powder I'm talking about, here is the thread, I really want to try the vanilla!

I think it's something you need to test because everyone is different. I would, however, recommend getting the Natural flavor because you can request it without the stabilizers which can sometimes cause people problems.

do you know what stabilizers they use? And you're right, I probably do need to test it out for myself, I would just hate to spend so much on a product and then have my digestive system boycott.

Do it and see how you feel. If what you do makes you feel good, continue. If not, stop.
Personally, I don't use protein powders. I feel they are a great waste of money.

Carrageenan (Natural Seaweed Stabilizer), Xanthan Gum (Natural Bio-Fermented Stabilizer), Stevia, with either pure alcohol extract of whole vanilla beans or raw cacao
You can always ask them about their refund policy or maybe they'll be willing to send you a sample once you explain the situation.

What's wrong with mixing fruit and nut milk? I make fruit smoothies with hemp milk and have done so with almond milk. I don't really like almond milk so my favorite is the hemp. I haven't had any problems with my smoothies. Is there some type of problem that I should be aware of? I hope not, I really look forward to my hemp smoothies.

there's no problem with mixing fruits and nutmilks, but if you get into food combining it's a no-no, I found that once I stopped adding nutmilk to my smoothies (which was a huge adjustment because I used to love creamy orange peach smoothies) I was a lot less bloated
why would you supplement with protein powder? I don't understand this as you get all the protien you need from raw fruits and veggies. No need to supplement with anything... to me, it defeats the whole purpose of being raw.

I get my protein mostly from the amino acids from a variety of leafy greens, also nuts and seeds and hemp in particular.

I'm not trying to completely supplement my diet with protein powders, but for convenience during the school year and in the mornings I wanted to try this brown rice protein powder
