Has anyone ever tried the Vega plant protein? It’s disgusting! I don’t know how anyone drinks that stuff! Let alone even looks at it…. it’s this disgusting brown colour that reminds me of you know what. It even smells like seaweed. Alright, if that’s your thing…cool. But HOW are you drinking this stuff???? I couldn’t even get half of it down before I felt like I was going to throw up. The creators of Vega protein should have really tasted the product before releasing it out into the world. Blech.
I’ve been experimenting with protein powders lately and I’ve found that most of the vegan protein powders just don’t digest well and taste awful. Come on people, who is going to come up with a vegan powder that actually tastes edible and doesn’t make me bloated beyond belief? Unfortunately, I can’t wait around for that so I began my experimentation with whey protein which is made from dairy. So far, I’ve found that the Alpha Whey is the best tasting and most easily digested. The vanilla flavoring of some protein powders can be overwhelmingly sweet and I’m just not down for that, but the Alpha protein has a good vanilla flavor. It doesn’t make me bloated, and keeps me full and energetic until lunchtime (boo ya!).
1. Mix all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
*Note – whey protein sometimes doesn’t blend well at first, I recommend pulsing until it’s combined just a little bit to get the ball rolling.
