Protein Powders I Have Loathed: Vega One Vanilla ChaiĀ 

Potpourri. No. Seriously. That’s what this both tastes and smells like. I like a chai latte once in a while and this is… not that. It does somehow avoid the weird chalky texture of the Vega Protein and Greens, so maybe the straight vanilla version of this will be better? But yeah. This is like blending and guzzling your Christmas Cinnamon Dreams Spice candle and maybe that’s your thing but it sure isn’t mine. It also got weirdly thick in the 40 minutes it took to drive to work. Like milkshake thick. 

I have questions.

Protein Powders I Have Loathed: Sprouts Vegan Vanilla

I take back every complaint I had about Vega Protein and Greens. I am so sorry. This is worse. This is so. much. worse. It is chalky and tastes kind of like Playdoh smells and it is just terrible. Their vanilla whey was by no means perfect but it was very drinkable. This is just bad. I think the aftertaste may be that heavy-duty Stevia that Vega doesn’t completely mask but at least drowns out.

Followed instructions on packet and mixed with 8oz of water in a Blenderbottle.

Protein Powders I Have Loathed: Sprouts Whey Protein

Vanilla flavor again. This was an impulse purchase because they sell single serve packets in the checkout line. Drank it mixed with water in a blender bottle and it is the same as any vanilla flavored whey I’ve ever had. No weird Stevia aftertaste and no chalky texture problem like the Vega had. It mixed up pretty easily. 

90 calories per serving when mixed with 4 oz of water. 

Cost: $2 for a single serve packet, will look into a full container of it

Rating: Would consume again if in checkout line at Sprouts

I bought a vegan version as well so that will be tomorrow’s test. Stay tuned!
