This is disgusting
I am so disappointed in this product. About 5+ years ago I used to drink the Vanilla Pea Protein powder and it was an okay drink. Just today, after reading these reviews I purchased a vanilla and a chocolate container to try. They were both disgusting, sickly sweet, and chalky. After the initial sip, I tried another and then tipped it down the sink. Don't buy this product if you want to save your money, just eat healthy.
I am vegan and also exercise every day so adding extra protein in my diet is very crucial. I have tried many different vegan protein brands and I found this product has a very smooth consistency - much better than gritty brown rice protein powders. Price is consistently cheaper than other vegan protein powders. The flavour could be better which is why I didn’t give it 5 stars.
i love it! As a vegan i need that extra protein and this is perfect!
i have one tablespoon of the chocolate flavour with one banana, frozen berries and half choc almond milk and half plain almond milk!
i find the best way to mix up the pea protein is to mix it in a separate cup with the almond milks and then pour it into my blender over the banana and frozen berries.
i have it for breakfast/lunch with some fruit and nuts and that's me full for a few hours!
I tried mixing it with water and found it revolting, gritty and undrinkable. So started blending it with coconut water or a green smoothie (spinach, avocado, papaya, coconut water) and found it to be delicious. Tastes good if you blend it up, rather than mixing it in. I have been using the vanilla one. Seems to work extremely well. No complaints. It is good value too. I usually have it for breakfast.
Perfect! Love that it's low carb and low calorie
I purchased this recently as my diet has been lacking in protein and I've began to feel a lot weaker after going through pregnancy. I tried chocolate flavour. It's not too rich or sickly in flavour, had a slight malt flavour which I love. I drink it with water and it's perfect for those who have to be careful about their weight as well.
Awesome can’t start my day without it
Bought the Vital vanilla flavour uh let’s see to improve the taste just add these together the amount of water required, berries can be fresh or frozen, a little bit of Greek yoghurt (vanilla), and one or two bananas depending if you want it thicker or not add two if not add one, drinking this by itself with water uh well couldn’t really drink it .. and yes I’ve felt a lot better in ages and am building my muscles in addition to exercising wonder if I should try the veggie one too hrrrm ...

It used to be great before they changed the recipe!
I loved this chocolate powder for my breakfast smoothie with blueberries, maca and cacao powder and had the big 1kg tub. When I ran out recently I bought another 1 kg tub online, not knowing the recipe had changed. I wondered what was wrong with it when I tasted my first smoothie. It was sickly-sweet so I checked the ingredients and found stevia was added. WHY?? It was great as it was, now I'm stuck with a 1kg tub of it. I'm REALLY disappointed. It was sweet enough as it was now it's ruined. I tried using half quantity and added a banana and it was better but still not as good as it was.
Good diet kick start
GP said I needed more protein but I didnt want to eat bigger meals - so opted for Pea protein - I mix with low fat milk as my morning meal - and dont feel hungry. Not the best taste but to be honest, the best things for us do not always taste nice - get over it! Can highly recommend it - GP said protein levels improving - YAY!
This protein powder is great. I have had great muscle growth... and all without the bodily secretions of another animal! So much healthier than Whey protein also.
The chocolate one is good, it tastes like chocolate up&go.. I also like the vanilla one because you can add it to smoothies and pancakes.
For the people saying "it's too thick", just add more liquid.. Very easy solution! Though I haven't found it too thick at all.
I use 2 heaped tablespoons with 200ml of almond milk. Sometimes I will also blend it up with raspberries, spinach and a banana.
A truly healthy, low sugar protein powder!
I love how this protein powder has almost no sugar - most brands are very high in sugar or chemical artificial sweeteners. It takes practice to get the technique right when mixing this powder so it does not cake and the flavour may not be what you are used to if you are used to high sugar powders but this is exactly what I want in a protein powder - all natural, almost no sugar and I love the taste. In a market where most products claim to be healthy but are actually full of unhealthy sugars or chemicals this is a winner and I love it!
Great taste good value
I think the vanilla flavour is ok, and have not tried chocolate but the strawberry is very refreshing. Not sure why people don't like stevia though, I am on my second attempt to quit refined sugar and last time lasted four months. I don't think stevia is addictive or tastes anywhere near as bad as that chemical sugar. This is the only protein powder I will have, considering the others have some fairly toxic ingredients and some cause me instant headaches or sinus pressure?? Very strange indeed. I will only purchase this brand and have it three ...to four times per week when burned allot of calories in that day. Also my tip is to add some natural yogurt or liquid egg whites purchased from the supermarket. I always use some water, almond milk, liquid egg whites, protein powder, and sometimes natural yogurt can't go wrong. Might have one now.
Questions & Answers
Mixed as recommended but it came out so thick impossible to drink without gagging. Should it be like that?
