Especially for vegans, protein powder can be a great way of adding protein to your diet, according to EC Synkowski, a Boulder nutrition coach. She says that plant foods tend to be higher in carbs and fats than protein, so powders made from plants can make a great supplement. Below are seven great options, all of which are Stevia-free.
Personalized Protein Powder
Serving Size 72g (2 scoops).
Protein Per Serving: 44 grams
Gainful asks you about your ideal weight, exercise goals, frequency and activity level, as well as any dietary restrictions such gluten, soy and whey allergies, lactose intolerances, veganism and vegetarianism. My personal powder, which is mostly pea, oat and brown rice protein, has 44 grams of protein. It’s perfect for me as a vegan CrossFitter of 5’9″ and 175 pounds.

Vega can be made with between four and eight ingredients, depending on the flavor you choose. This is a great choice if you don’t need a lot of protein. Even though it contains five grams of sugar, it isn’t too sweet or overwhelming, even when you mix it with water.

Sakara is primarily made up of pumpkin seed, sesame and pea protein. It also contains a digestive enzyme mix, which can improve your gut health.

Sakara’s flavor is more earthy and savory than what you might expect from a protein supplement, but it is still delicious.
Your Super Skinny Protein
Serving Size 15g (two tablespoons).
Protein Per Serving: 9 grams
Your Skinny provides nine grams of protein through a combination of five ingredients: spirulina (moringa), alfalfa (alfalfa), pea protein and hemp protein. It tastes more like Sakara than a chocolate cake.
