Best Raw Vegan Protein Powder
This dietary supplement has plenty of protein, but it’s also packed with probiotics and fiber. It's a Non-GMO Project Verified, USDA Organic, and Certified Gluten-Free product, so it makes sense that Men's Health awarded it "Best Ingredients" on its list of the best vegan protein powders.
Contains vitamin K derived from fermented soy, which is a bummer for vegans who follow a soy-free lifestyle. Doesn’t taste as good as some of the other protein powders on our list - but it's still tolerable without mix-ins.
Taste: We’ll be honest: This shake doesn’t taste as great as some of the other options on our list of faves, especially if you aren’t used to eating healthy food. It’s not super sweet, and you can definitely taste some of the plant-based ingredients. If you hate the taste of this protein powder, try mixing it with juice or dumping it in a smoothie.
There are 4 flavors available for Garden of Life Raw Organic Meal Replacement Shakes: Vanilla, Chocolate, Vanilla Chai, and Lightly Sweet. The Lightly Sweet is best if you want something that won’t overpower other ingredients in a smoothie.
Texture: Thick and slightly gritty. You can mix this protein powder with water or dairy-free milk, but we recommend adding it to a blender with some sort of liquid if you want a semi-smooth texture. Otherwise, you may end up with some lumps and clumps.
Ingredients: This raw organic meal replacement boasts 44 superfoods, including pea protein, chia seeds, cauliflower, blackberries, and blueberries. You won’t find a healthier vegan protein supplement, at least not as far as nutrient-rich, minimally processed ingredients go.
Two scoops of this gluten-free protein powder gives you 20 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber. Probiotics support your digestive system, while vitamin C strengthens your immune system.
Price: Expect to pay somewhere between $24 and $45 for this raw organic meal replacement powder depending on size and variety.
