5 Protein Powders for Vegans/ Vegetarians

I have upped the ante on my workouts since the beginning of the summer by doing more weight lifting than cardio and working it out consistently 4 to 5 times a week.  I  typically like to have some whey protein after I leave the gym to help me with building my muscles up since I am not really trying to lose much weight and I'm going for a toned look.

Recently, I have been toying with the idea of transitioning to a vegan diet and have been slowly eating less chicken and turkey.  I also only drink almond milk and figured that it would make sense to look into a protein supplement that does not have whey (which is made from milk).

After perusing online, these 5 are my top contenders:

All of these protein supplements contain no dairy and no soy.  Just straight up plant protein which is great for vegans, vegetarians or those who are lactose intolerant.  I wish I could taste test each one to help me decide which one to buy but, it looks like I will have to choose one and hope that it does not taste like sawdust.  

Have you tried using plant protein shakes?  Which one would you recommend?


  1. I use, recommend (and sell, to be totally upfront) vegan Shakeology! It's 16 grams of protein which isn't much, but the superfoods are great for someone like me who doesn't really eat all that well anyway.
    Vega products are pretty good, too-I LOVE their snack bars!

    1. I will have to check them out! I've heard good things about Shakeology.
