Protein is an integral part of every diet — whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian or unabashed carnivore. However, it can be more challenging to ensure you’re getting enough of it when you’re following a plant-based diet. While I’m admittedly no longer meat and dairy-free, I did dabble with veganism for a bit after my dad challenged me to do so, antagonistically positing that I couldn’t go without a hamburger for a month. I love burgers, but I really don’t like when someone tells me I can’t do something. So yes, I guess his strategy worked. Somewhat surprisingly, the short-lived stint actually lasted six months, which led me to discover some of the best vegan protein powders that I actually still use in my smoothies. Seeing as how I write about supplements pretty often and get to try out new ones out pretty regularly, I’ve taste-tested quite a few options, and frankly, many of them tasted like straight-up grass.

To be honest, I have a couple of whey-based protein powders that I’ve been faithful to since well, forever. They’re rich and creamy, but definitely not vegan-friendly. Along my journey though, I discovered that finding a plant-based powder that didn’t taste like my dying house plants proved to be a major challenge. But, rest assured friends, it isn’t definitively impossible. In fact, there are plenty of delicious-tasting whey and soy free powders that will give you the protein and even some added greens to keep your wellness endeavors and fitness goals on track.
