On the go, back from the track, in a hurry, or just craving a good smoothie, you can always count on a good scoop of powder to get them vegan proteins in. And while that once meant turning your jar of deliciousness into a grainy and not very tasty concoction, switching from whey to a plant-based supplement is now breezy. Whether you are seeking plant energy for the well-being of your stomach, the animals or the planet, you no longer have to sacrifice taste and pleasure. But with growing demand for such products comes growing supply and we all know that the fitness industry is a tricky world to navigate: Lots of big expensive jugs and too little quality nutrients. Fortunately, not everyone is in it just for the money, and the ideal powder that will boost your smoothies is out there. Here’s a selection of some of the best products to concoct the ultimate vegan protein drink.

WelleCo

Nuzest

A fairly new player in the game, Nuzest has been able to make its mark despite the saturated market. The best part? They did it in the best way possible: By offering a really good product that’s actually clean and lean.

Form

Nutrient dense, high-quality complete protein featuring digestive enzymes, probiotics, superfoods, easy to dissolve and great tasting, what’s more to love? Perhaps their sexy flavours and the choice between Superblend and Endurance protein.

Sakara

Sakara’s Life Source Super Powder is an all-in-one daily nutrition supplement which doubles as a protein and collagen source for the plant-based eater. No wonder it’s a bestseller.

Bare Blends

The name pretty much says it all: Bare Blends offer all-natural, organic protein made from the best quality ingredients in Australia. No fillers, no nonsense. Just make sure to select the vegan ones.

Owyn

Finally a ready-to-drink tasty dairy-free beverage for when you don’t have access to your blender or the time to power it up. It is the ultimate grab-and-go for a good dose of protein wherever life takes you. P.S. They also have the powdered stuff.

Your Super

Your Super is all about superfood and highly nutritious foods. Their protein formulas come in two types, Skinny Protein and Muscle Power, to cater to different needs and fitness goals.

True Protein

True Protein’s vegan blend contains a rich amino acid profile for active vegans and athletes looking for an alternative to whey.
