The one i have is called "Tone it Up" and it's vegan. It has abt 90 calories per serving and isn't too nasty, especially the coconut and coffee flavors. The vanilla isn't too bad, but the chocolate and peanut butter flavors are disgusting so stay away from those.

I’m obsessed with Orgain and some of Vega’s protein powders. Depending on the flavor and variety, they’re usually 140-160 cals per serving with 20g of protein. I mix them with 12oz unsweetened original almond milk which adds 45 cal, so one shake is 185-205 cals and satisfying. My personal faves are Orgain’s Simple Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup and their Creamy Chocolate Fudge, and for Vega their Protein + Energy Cold Brew Coffee flavor is delicious.

Beware of Vega’s protein & greens ones though I’ve had them a few times and they’re not very palatable... their “ONE” All-in-One protein powder is okay, but nowhere near as tasty as Orgain.

Orgain definitely tastes the best. I use the premade plant based shakes in my smoothies as a liquid base and add in more veggies... soooo good!

Not explicitly a protein powder but Huel is amazing as a nutritionally complete supplement

I stand by anything Orgain. But buy thru amazon, it’s loads cheaper. True nutrition is also super cheap and great! You make your own mix and can add sugar free vegan flavorings ^^

From what I’ve read Orgain protein powders aren’t vegan. I’m not saying don’t get them, I’m just pointing it out since your question specified VEGAN. Since several people mentioned it, I wanted to comment.

I’m lactose intolerant so I’m really finicky with my protein powders. Good luck!

Vegolife Active Vegan Protein!

 

I got the chocolate flavour and it's the tastiest powder I've ever tried imo. No weird aftertaste or feeling sluggish afterwards like other pea protein powders seem to do for me.

My favorite is rice protein. Unfortunately most vegan protein powders have pea protein, and no matter what flavor, they always taste like peas.  :wacko:

I absolutly love the vega clean chocolate and vanilla powders. Both mix well and both low in counts.
New find this week however was PhD smart plant protein salted caramel nd the cookie dough... Omg... They are ace. I've no appetite at the mo and a scoop mixed in 250ml water is getting me through my afternoons. Love it
