Best Tasting Vegan Protein Powder

Best Tasting Vegan Protein Powder

We love plant-based protein powders, especially when they offer incredible nutrition and amazing flavours. They’ve come a long way too, with plentiful of flavour combinations that would more than satisfy the most dedicated of vegans.

Who remembers the days of foul tasting protein powders that were packed full of sugar and who knows what else? Fortunately, those days are now behind us and anyone who enjoys to lead a healthy, active lifestyle can finally enjoy the best tasting protein powders.

Whilst it is getting better, the vegan community is often met with controversy and people who just don’t quite have the knowledge base to appreciate that vegan food and vegan protein specifically, can be both high quality and delicious!

More than 629,000 people took part in Veganuary in 2022, the largest number recorded so far and the charity is expecting this number to be surpassed again in 2023.

It has been estimated that going vegan could save around 8 million human lives by 2050, reduce greenhouse gases by two thirds and lead to health care related savings and avoided climate damages of $1.5 trillion (Oxford Martin, 2016).

As such, becoming vegan is no longer a trend, it has become a lifestyle for millions of people, whether that be for environmental or health reasons. However not everyone goes 100% vegan, it is very common for some people to simply make more vegan choices in their diet in order to reduce their impact on the environment. 

This could even mean just simply switching your whey protein shake to a vegan one. Vegan protein shakes and plant-based proteins have come a long way, and taste pretty insane! 

Can I Get Enough Protein From a Plant-Based Diet with Supplements?

One of the biggest misconceptions around plant-based diets is that ‘vegans can’t get enough protein’.

However that is simply not true, you can consume enough protein from a plant-based diet. There are so many high protein, vegan food sources that are easily accessible and delicious such as quinoa, pulses, tofu, lentils and so much more! 

So yes, you can gain enough protein from a plant based diet alone. However, just like with ‘traditional’ omnivorous diets, some vegans find it both cost effective and convenient to supplement with a protein shake in order to hit their daily protein goals. 

This is where having a plant based protein shake comes in, to supplement a healthy, balanced vegan diet with additional protein to support your goals. 

Best Tasting Vegan Protein Powders

When it comes down to choosing a vegan protein powder, there are two things that should be on your checklist.

Number 1 being, nutrition, though that’s a given. If it doesn’t use high quality ingredients and an impressive macronutrient profile, it should not even be considered.

Number 2, this is where it gets competitive, the taste. What’s the point in having a shake if you don’t enjoy drinking it, or even worse if it just sits at the back of your cupboard because your tastebuds can’t handle it?
