I eat quite a bit of protein powder since I don’t eat a lot of meat. I love making protein smoothies, homemade protein bars, and adding protein to my oatmeal. Over the years, I have tried quite a few protein powders, so I thought I’d share my thoughts on some of them.
I’m always on the hunt for a solid protein powder that doesn’t have artificial ingredients, a lot of sugar, and tastes good. I have found one in particular I’m a fan of, which I feature at the end. But first let’s start with the sub-par ones.
I really liked this protein powder but after seeing it had 13 grams of sugar per serving, I had to bid farewell to it. It is definitely the best-tasting protein powder I’ve tried, so if you don’t mind the extra sugar, I’d give this a try.
This plain soy protein powder, also from Genisoy, is a great option for those who don’t want any added flavor. (I used this to make soy protein bars since there are other ingredients that provide flavor to the bars.) I used this kind until I started buying plain protein powder from the bulk section simply because it is cheaper. The “ultra” kind has 25 grams of protein per serving, which is really good.
I’ve also tried this Nature’s Plus Spiru-tein vanilla protein powder. It was okay but nothing I would buy again. To me, it had a weird super creamy, tacky texture I just wasn’t a fan of. Plus it has a lot of mystery ingredients.
This Plant Fusion protein powder is by far my least favorite protein powder I’ve tried. I did not think it tasted good at all!
I was bummed because I had read a good review about it on a different blog, but maybe everyone’s tastes buds are different.
I love the ingredients and it is made only from plant sources, is gluten-free, and easily digestible. It does, however, have stevia in it, which I’m torn about how I feel.
And now for my favorite protein powder: Rainbow Light Creamy Vanilla Protein Energizer.
I love the ingredients, it is gluten-free, no soy, no dairy, or added sugar! Score! (It does have stevia in it though.)
But seriously, this has a very good flavor and awesome ingredients.
And even better than the vanilla flavor is the chocolate flavor!
But since I’m supposed to cut out chocolate after finding out I am slightly allergic to it, I’ve had hold off on it. (Although, I did cheat the other day by eating some chocolate chips.)
If I had to recommend any of these protein powders, this would be it!
