Better than most of the Vegan options out there
Wow! You guys have really improved the taste of this protein powder. It mixes fabulously with almond milk. 25 grams of protein is excellent. Lots of BCAAs. Very clean. I'm very happy with it.
I've had the toughest time choking back other protein powders, to the point where I end up wasting $30+ on each product because I just CANNOT finish them. The Genuine Health Vegan Proteins+ (Vanilla) is the exception. I don't mind the taste, it's quite mild compared with other brands, and it mixes well with my almond milk and berries, and i don't have to add extra fruit to mask the flavour. I am a repeat buyer, and will continue to buy GH Vegan Proteins+
So far I have only had one shake. The vanilla.
I must say I wasn't in love. My fitness trainer recommended it and I'm doing as she says but the gritty texture is something to get used to. I'm used to whey isolate. I've read many great things about the vegan protein. So I'm optimistic. I'll keep trying it. Eventually I'll acquire the taste :)
By far the best tasting vegan protein
This is coming from somebody with an extremely weak stomach to just about every thing & taste.
I'm on my 6th tub of the chocolate flavour. Whether it's alone with just water or my favourite mixture ; 1 scoop, 1 cup of unsweetened original almond milk, raw cacao powder and hemp hearts. This shake honestly tastes like heaven in my opinion. I look forward to having it every day. Sometimes even twice.
Not only is it dairy free, gluten free. Non GMO. It's also incredibly low in calories (130 a scoop), carbs and unnatural sugars. Most of all the price is beyond affordable.
I've tried every vegan protein on the planet. I'm either left in agony or gagging over the sink. Try this !
Taste is a matter of personal preference. I find the chocolate flavor is great Mixed with plain unsweetened almond milk. Excellent product for a source of non soy, plant based protein.
I enjoy using this product most mornings in my smoothie. I use the vanilla.
And sometimes I have some in the afternoon for a pick-me-up mixed with some almond milk. I don't find it gritty at all - it mixes well in my mixer, and tastes great.
I would love to see you develop a hemp protein supplement that is more complementary to the paleo/primal lifestyle (no legumes or grains or beans).
I always trust Genuine Health products to deliver healthy and well-priced supplements.
Delicious with 1 cup So Delicious unsweetened Coconut milk, organic fruit and mix 1 tablespoon of chia/hemp/flax seed. Delicious!
Love the Strawberry flavour with mixed berries.
Yeah, there is some left over stuff in the bottom after you drink your shake...so?
Just add a bit more water..shake it again and drink the nutritious left over stuff.
It's a health food nutritious shake... There is no shake out there that tastes like a Blizzard from Dairy Queen and that is healthy and nutritious.
This stuff gets a 9 out of 10 for taste for sure... if you don't like it try some of those awful protein bars at the health food store that taste like flavoured floor sweepings and leave you feeling like you eaten a chalk brush from an old school house! or try some that unflavoured hemp protein.. now that's yummy stuff.... It sits in the cup in clumpy balls looking right at ya saying "I dare ya drink me up!"
Makes it easy to shift from Whey to a Vegan based protein. Tastes great, keeps away cravings, mixes well and tastes even better when mixed with unsweetened almond milk and water.
Would recommend it for sure! :)
This is a great product,mix with coconut milk even better.
Thanks for the great feedback on Vegan proteins+! We love the flavour too and think it mixes great alone, into smoothie as well as baked goods like homemade protein bars, muffins and oatmeal. Although the calorie count comes in a little higher than our proteins+ it is an amazing blend of 5 vegetarian proteins that ensures an amazing amino acid profile that gives the body all the essentials it needs for muscle growth and repair. Vegan proteins+ has only the highest quality ingredients so you know that you are getting only the good ingredients your body needs without anything artificial.
Excellent protein to fill you up and stave off cravings.I lost 50 lbs using this product and have increased energy to exercise. Improved memory and thinking.
I just started using Vegan Proteins+ and have to admit, it is the best tasting protein supplement I've tried, period. I bought the Strawberry flavour and I absolutely love that it's not very sweet. Every other protein supplement I've had, whether it's vegan or whey, has been way too sweet. It's better tasting in a smoothie of course, but it's also fine with water.
The only complaint is that it has about 20 more calories per scoop than regular whey protein and has only 20gs of protein per scoop. Most protein supplements I've had in the past have at least 50gs.
I have tried quite a few protein products in the past, and haven't gotten past one scoop. Practically gagging. I bought this on a whim one day as I find the products from Genuine Health have been great! I really enjoy it every morning with some All Bran Buds, a banana, and 1 % milk. It is great!
I've tried other proteins and whey isolates. Of all my exsperiments, Vegan Protein+ is perfect! I feel much better now that I've added this to my pescatarian lifestyle and am very satisfied with the price. I use 1 scoop + unsweeterned hemp milk with an immersion blender to mix it. I love Vegan Protein+!
LOVE the taste of this product, and even ok with the texture,
Mixed with orange juice, it is very delightful.
I didn't give this 5 stars because of the gritty feeling of this protein. It's also not the best tasting stuff. I add some natural-unsweetened cocoa powder and stevia to make it taste like a milkshake... I mix it with PLENTY of water as well, making it less gritty. Also, a banana helps make it creamy and sweet, with natural sugars!
Just thought I'd let you know, as i've found doing those few things makes it much more palatable.
I use many protein products and this is one of the best. I really question those who complain about taste and grit. If you mix it with enough liquid, there is no issue with grit and the taste is perfect. It is a protein mix, not a strawberry milk shake.
I take love this shake in "Natural Strawberry" with AlmondBreeze Almond Milk and also add GenuineHealth's "Healthy Skin with Greens+" in "Chocolate Raspberry" flavor = Taste is GREAT! Also love that it's vegan and the blend of proteins is very good. I am also a person with sensitive digestive system and this is the only vegetarian protein powder that does not make me feel sick or nauseous.
Do not take it with juice, I think it would taste terrible just like any other protein powder would. It's just ok with water. Overall great product and also must mention that it blends well without clumping up like other protein powders I've tried.
Don't expect it to taste like "double chocolate" at all. Plant and chocolate do not mix. Maybe a mint, or ginger or apple flavor would taste better.
Also, the labeling on the package is incomplete. Where are the lists of amino acids and vitamins? Consumers shouldn't have to visit the website to find them.
The good part is this product is 100% and it has plenty of protein and it's easy to digest.
Finally, a GREAT tasting VEGAN protein powder that doesn't contain soy! I've recently started to develop a lactose intolerance so had to kiss my beloved whey protein shakes goodbye and find an alternative and I can't have soy due to health reasons.
I've tried the other 'top notch' vegan shake (you know the one which features a triathlon athlete) but couldn't stomach the taste or the gritty texture that came with it.
If you don't like this shakes' taste, you wont like ANY VEGAN shake. You cannot compare this taste to a whey protein drink because it is COMPLETELY different.(Whey is a dairy by product, so ya, its gonna taste like a milk product, whereas this one is made from legumes and cereal, DUH!)
Genuine Health, PLEASE do NOT change a good thing!
Due to several food sensitivities/allergies, I was told to try this protein powder. I've tried many other vegan proteins and this was by far the BEST! I don't know why other people are complaining about the taste..... maybe they're comparing it to whey protein? But you really can't because they are very different. Almost like comparing apples to oranges. If you're going to compare this powder to others, I challenge you all to try rice protein powder!! BLEH!! The texture of this protein is quite nice and isn't at all as grainy as other vegan protein powders. I mix mine with unsweetened vanilla almond milk and it's delicious!! I actually mix in my greens+ detox as well and this mix keeps me full for HOURS!! Love this product and will definately continue to purchase it. Thank you GH!!
I really wanted to like this but this product is disgusting. I really want my money back, i am not happy at all.

Wow! I started to workout and needed more protein but was skeptical about this since I have purchased top of the line product before from a different company and could not even swallow it. This is different. Tastes so good especially Double Chocolate if mixed with almond milk and maybe a banana, so so good and digests easy. Also, surprisingly not bad just mixed with water.
Taste a little hard to stomach
Even if the product does as it claims, and I'm sure it does, trying to drink this awful tasting stuff morning feels more like punishment than anything else. Can't do it.
On the plus side, Vegan proteins+ was easy to digest, no bloating or gas. It provided long-lasting satiety. However, the funky taste is a turn off.
In my opinion, it has a strong "raw beany" taste, somewhat reminiscent of plain soy. This makes sense, considering that pea (a legume) makes up 80% of the protein blend. On the other hand, brown rice protein has a mild delicate taste, but makes up less than 12% of the protein blend in this product.
Just a suggestion, but perhaps reformulating this product to contain less pea and more rice protein could result in a significant improvement in the taste.
I would be willing to try a reformulated Vegan proteins+ in future, but as it is now I won't be buying again.
Great product, but the taste is ewww
I used and loved the regular proteins + but decided to try this one because of dairy sensitivities. In comparison this one is very chalky, and even mixed with juice I found it hard to stomach. I appreciate the intent in creating this product though. I might try others' suggestions of using it for baking.
Perfect Product....finally !!
I'm a lactose, gluten intolerant vegetarian who has IBS and is hypoglycemic.. finding a protein powder that meets all my "challenges" has always been..challenging! I finally was made aware of Genuine Health by my local GNC and have never looked back. I follow a whole regiment of supplements from Genuine Health. These products are of superior ingredients that have never caused me any issues. This vanilla powder is smooth and is mixed easily using a shaker. Thank you Genuine Health !!
The double chocolate is absolutely disgusting.
First of all I must thank you so much for the free samples you sent to me recently. I was already enjoying the New Vegan Proteins(double chocolate)it is delicious and what I do is stir it in a cup of hot milk and it is like having a cup of hot chocolate, it is sweet enough so... doesn`t need any sweetener. That is my mid morning pick me up and incidently I have Greens+ every morning before breakfast before I go for my early morning walk and have been doing that for several years from when it first came out in Canada. At the present time I am trying out the Greens + bone builder and enjoy that too. Thanks again for the freebies and have a great day.
What about natural flavour?
the vanilla and chocolate ones are loaded with sweetness, even though it's stevia doesn't mean you have to over do it.
Please make the natural flavoured one.
Re: Great product, but too much packaging
Thank you for your comment. All our powders are sold by weight as opposed to volume. The powders can settle during shipping and storage and this explains why the containers may appear to be less than full. When the containers are filled at our warehouse, they are virtually full. Every container is weighed to ensure the correct number of grams are present in the container.
Great product, but too much packaging
I've been trying this product for the past several weeks, and am quite satisfied with everything about it... the taste does take some getting used to, but I've found mixing it with rice milk or soy milk is a definite help. The only complaint I have is in regards to the containers they ship it in... they're only filled up halfway to the top! In this day and age where environmental issues are so prominent, it's surprising to see that companies still resort to wasteful packaging practices just to create an illusion of better value. Anyone who buys the product quickly realizes this, so why not give up the charade and cut down on plastic consumption?
Finally a Protein Powder for those with Food Intolerances
I am Non-Celiac Gluten, Casein, and Soy Intolerant. Obviously, because of this, I've had to modify my diet drastically!! I have been looking for a protein powder that was free of these ingredients, and have tried several different brands. This is by far the best tasting powder I've tried. And the consistency when blended is smooth - especially considering that Hemp protein powder I've used in the past has had a sandpaper grit texture to it.
The only reason I couldn't give this protein powder a 5 star was because of the vanilla flavor. I have never been a fan of vanilla flavored things, as I'm a proud Chocoholic. I agree with a few of the other reviewers on other flavor choices: flavor free and chocolate.
Best Vegan Protein I've Ever Tried
This protein powder mixed really well in the blender and added a wonderful flavour to my normal protein shake. You should try it with a teaspoon of Nutella and a banana; the taste and texture are phenomenal.
RE: needs improvement review
I am sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the texture of vegans proteins+ product. Because the pea, rice & alfalfa proteins are isolated without resorting to chemical means, (rather, through grounding, milling and sieving) the texture is slightly coarser than that of other protein powders.

Vegan proteins+ natural vanilla does smell like vanilla...it also smells chalky...something I can forgive. However tasting it is another story--mixed with 8oz water--the initial taste is good, but it has a slightly bitter aftertaste. The bitterness coupled with the fact that there is also quite a bit of gritty particulate in it..esp. toward the bottom--even when very well shaken means that I will be returning the rest to the location I purchased the product at--I do not think I could drink another one.
Thank you very much for having taken the time to try and review our product. As part of our Total Quality Obligation we guarantee your satisfaction.

Is it just me or is the taste of the vegan protein + horrible? I usually drink my protein powder with soy milk,berries,flaxseed oil, and a banana...but I can't get myself to drink any of this vegan protein, I feel like gagging.
I liked the regular protein + chocolate..but this one is just horrible to me.
I am an avid exerciser and teach bootcamps and body sculpting. It took days for my body to heal after workouts, leaving me lethargic and moody.
Literally after two days of Vegan Proteins...I have more energy. I am not in pain, my body has healed incredibly and I have energy so I don't tucker out towards the end of the week.
Far Better Than I Anticipated.
I have been searching for a healthy alternative to soy, whey and other additives, flavoring and artificial everything.... this is the product for me. I wanted to make it even more flavorful, so I add 1/2 teaspoon of organic cocoa powder. Wow, it really trumps up the taste. This product was recommended by my Naturopath.
Great product to bake with.
I have a dancer daughter who is very hard to keep weight on when she is competing. She's lactose and dye intolerant so a number of weight gain options are immediately eliminated.
We didn't want to use soy products beacuse she is so young and whey based proteins give her trouble.
I use the Vegan proteins plus in baked goods like muffins, bread, cookies and loaves to help her keep her energy and weight up. The only thing that would be better is a flavour free option of this product.
I felt great in less than 21 days, I would highly recommend this product for energy and weight loss as I have lost a couple of pounds on it over a 2 week period and my energy levels have increased. I can assure you will not be disappointed with Vegan protein+.
tastes great and mixes really well!
I've tried different vegan proteins in the past and all either taste bad or don't mix well.
I'm not vegetarian but I like to rotate my protein sources and Vegan Proteins + is excellent!
I LOVE IT!
Excellent Vegan Alternative
Light flavour and a great alternative to my usual whey protein. Great breakfast alternative!!
