The texture is very gross and sticky in your mouth, the vanilla is too overpowering and tastes weird. I wouldn't advice this to anyone. The only good thing about this, is that it's a raw plantbased protein without soy and milk/lactose. It tastes gross, I'm gonna mix it with raw cacao in my shakes alot because raw cacao even masks spirulina taste in my shakes to finish the bucket. I'll never buy this again, I'll finish the bucket just for the sake of my money.

I've been using this for a few months now :) it is a great alternative to whey which I can't digest large amounts of :0 I swear though it is completely insoluble and the texture backs that up, but it is not a problem. I mixed it with my oats this morning was pretty odd but works well :)

At first it's kinda nasty if you keep it too long it will get this soggy gelatin texture.. i got used to it the 3rd time i made it, the best trick is mix it quickly and drink it FAST! (in less than 30 seconds lol). The taste is something you get used to it quick. Adding a frozen banana helps a lot.

I love that this protein is raw, organic, vegan and has probiotics. I recently stopped doing dairy, which means I couldn’t have my yogurt in the mornings. This protein is very easy on my stomach and easy for me digest. A lot of other product my me feel sick from the artificial sweetener or sugar alcohol. The texture is a little chalky, but I blend a scoop of this with a frozen banana, some blue berries, and almond milk and I really don’t notice. The banana gives it such a creamy texture. I recommend this to people when they ask me for a good plant based protein.

I feel more full (satiated) on this RAW protein than any other protein I have ever tried. Its ORGANIC and not full of concentrate junk protein and fillers. I mix it with oats for breakfast and eat in smoothies and post workout shakes. I used to get super gassy on any WHEY products I tried. I have evolved for health.

This has great benefits, but this is a horrible shake. It mixes poorly, goes down dry and chalky, and has a weak/bad taste. I had tried mixing this protein with all kinds of drinks and even in my oatmeal etc.. nothing soothed the taste. If you can choke it down power to you.

It's not to bad, a bit chalky for me. Of course the quality is great as is all of garden of life's products.

It does not taste to good. The powder is not fine, fells like drinking sand with water. I recently read that a independent test found heavy metals in the protein. But who knows.... I would not buy this product again, there are better options.

For years I've been a loyal NitroFusion customer but after changes to the product i decided to give this a try. Overall it's not a bad choice, it blends well and doesn't taste particularly bad. As far as taste goes I can only rate it compared to other plant proteins which are not know for their flavor apart from Vega but that stuff is three bucks a scoop. I digress. This stuff digests well, tastes ok, is raw if that's something that concerns you, and is reasonably priced. If you're willing to ignore the online rumors about there being traces of heavy metals in Garden of Life products I'd say this is a safe bet.

Okay so ive read all about this and know its the best for me being gluten dairy soy free and all vegan plus organic. I bought this before my trip to la for an intense week of dancing/fitness. I was really excited to try it, I've had choc whey before and it was so yummy but not good for me obviously. This stuff was clumpy, I shook it forever. I also mixed it with choc almomd milk and it still tasted like dirt. The old whey powder I could mix with water and it was tasty. Any suggestions? I don't have a blender so I can't mix it with smoothie stuff in addition, but I literally gagged my last chug that I managed to get down. Help!!!! I need these calories and nutrients for this intense regimen im having to do.

I love this product, but instead of buying it here at BB.com I have to buy it over somewhere else, for some reason BB.com charge a fair bit more for all the Garden of Life products I've noticed (I'm talking 25% more so no small amount) comparing the prices to Lorna's place..... seems the bigger BB.com have got the more they up their prices... when the opposite should be in effect as to buying power....

Given the ingredients, I was actually surprised by the flavor -- definitely no ice cream sunday -- but not bad at all. It's a bit grainy but it makes for a perfect morning shake. The taste is irrelevant though however given the quality and the effects. You feel clean and refreshed; it's pretty invigorating personally. You'll notice a difference right away and it's an excellent choice for those vegans out there. Highly recommended. Do your research though before taking anyone's word on it...as always.

By the label it seems great protein from over a dozen different plants. However, texture is like dinking fine sand. the cocoa tastes... just not right, not bad, but not good either. I would tolerate both of these but I agree with the person below. unbelievable bloat. I bloated so much I was in pain, then terrible gas all day. if you want to entertain a few pre-teen boys FOR HOURS and lose your girlfriend get this stuff. I'm never buying it again. Its a shame VEGA is twice the price.

By far my favorite protein! I mix it with almond milk and I am good to go! The taste is a little grainy but I am used to it. I don't eat much sugar or sweats so it taste good to me. I recommend this protein of you want to drink something healthier and better for you.

All I can say is: Heavy Bloating as a Plant Protein, and many more better alternatives. I can't even remember which flavour I tried as it is not worth-remembering!
