This stuff is amazing! Expensive, but amazing! In Australia we have available soy protein (kinda tastes okay, but not the healthiest option, especially if you are trying to minimise soy), rice protein (kind of grainy and not high enough protein content), and pea protein (gross, gross, gross and doesn't mix well). Vega Performance Protein is awesome because it is a mix of FIVE different proteins, so it is a good mix and gives HIGH protein content from a MIXED source, and whats best is that it TASTES GOOD and it MIXES REALLY WELL. I've only had the vanilla, and generally whatever I have just tastes vanilla-ey, but I have it once/twice a day for muscle building and mix it with any variety of oat milk/almond milk/or cocounut milk and frozen berries... and it just tastes so good, and so smooth. It doesn't work out to be that much more expensive than the non-soy protein powders I can buy in Australia, but it so much better on so many levels, this is the best addition to my diet since becoming vegan years ago.
I was so mad when VEGA came out with this new formula, because I thought the old one tasted just fine. (Not "good," but it wasn't hard to drink, by any means). So when I saw that their "new & improved" formula was $20 MORE than the old one, I was furious! I didn't think the taste was that bad. But iHerb saved me, by offering this new kind for less than the cost of the old formula! Phew, thank you, iHerb! I got this new formula in the mail (super quickly, as always. iHerb has lightening-fast shipping/processing) and I drank it today. The new formula is absolutely delicious. It really tastes like a vanilla shake. And it looks like one, too! The old formula was green and had coarse bits in it that would get left over in the bottom even though I shake mine up with a malt shaker prior to drinking. This new formula smells amazing in the powder form, and it's no longer green when you mix it with water. It's now a creamy off-white color and it's so much smoother. The powder is more fine than the old version, light & fluffy. And it goes down the hatch smoother. I can drink ALL of it. The old version, I'd have to leave the last .5" at the bottom of the cup because it was full of particles that didn't mix. I highly recommend this new formula, thanks completely to iHerb for making it affordable for me to continue drinking everyday.

A little gritty, but it sure beats whey. No outbreaks and it digests easily! The spoon makes it a little messy to scoop the contents out.
Best protein powder!

No soy, No whey (dairy) protein. It is the most delicious from the MANY others I have tried through the years. My only complaint is it's very pricey. There have been times I almost order a different one, then remove it from my cart & get this one because it is delicious & you get more protein.

really enjoyed the taste of this. Most of the time, I just add water and shake it by hand to consume after training. It mixes very well, doesn't have a chalky texture and tastes good, if but a little oversweet. I don't know if the excess sweetness that leads me to feel hungry shortly after I drink it, or if it's because I drink it only after I have done a fairly tough training session. I wish it were not so expensive, this is the only reason I will also try other vegan protein powders.
So far the only protein I liked.

I usually find it difficult to drink protein shakes, this one is tasty and does not give heaviness to your stomach. Tastes like melted vanilla ice cream, a bit gritty, but not to the point where it bothers you. By far the only protein i could drink. Have it with coconut milk and frozen berries.
The best I've tried

From all vegan protein shakes I have tried, this one is the best in terms of quality, texture and smell. The vanilla flavour is the most versatil as you can vary the way you mix it with berries, cocoa, avocado, banana... use your creativity and cravings!
