Rated 3 out of 5 by OntheNorthCoast Me gag reflux refused it.
I tried this plant based protein powder strictly from the favorable reviews here in addition to the impressive ingredient list of amino acids. I tried both the vanilla and the chocolate. I tried each in my berry/green smoothies as well as by themselves. They taste AWFUL. I couldn't differentiate a vanilla or chocolate flavor...just YUCK. And the chia seeds thicken it and stick in your teeth like bugs. I eat lots of weird stuff and have used other protein powders but this is the worse tasting stuff. My gag reflux was working overtime. I had to picture relaxing by the seashore in order to not spit this out....sip by sip... over the sink. I was determined to like it but my gag reflux won out. I'm returning both flavors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by keepitsimple My first experience with protein powder
New to protein powders, so I don't know if they are all like this, but it has a weird grainy/chalky taste and texture. The odd taste is new to me. Great chocolate flavor with just the right sweetness, though. I mix it with 1 cup of milk in a covered jar and it mixes up pretty well. Pretty thick and filling. I typically drink this for an early breakfast/snack to get me up and going early in the morning. I find I don't get hungry again for about 3 hours, which is pretty good considering the number of calories in the drink. Overall good; taste/texture just takes a little getting used to.

I have tried all the Life's Basic powders, but this one by far is the best. I have young kids who also love to have smoothies for breakfast. It has a great chocolate flavor, that tastes great with raw milk our coconut milk.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KGarcia ok for a smoothie only
This is hard to dissolve in milk to make chocolate" milk so I don't recommend that. I tired in coconut milk and couldn't get a desirable end product. It is fine however for use in the blender for smoothies if you want extra protein and I believe plant protein to be a more healthful alternative to milk protein like whey powder.

I am gluten free, dairy free and egg free and this protein mix is all plant based and has 22 gr. of protein in each scoop. I put a scoop in chilled water with a some organic powdered wheat grass and then in the high speed mixer. It's how I start my morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ellazine love the chocolate flavor
I bought a couple of different brands of protein powder and this is the best! I love the rich chocolaty flavor -- no gritty taste just tastes like a rich chocolate malt!
I will be back to order more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jbkoki Amazing!
You get tons of vegan protein for low caloric count and the price is ridiculously cheap compared to other protein powders! I love that it has fiber as well! It tastes good, you just can't let it sit in the fluid as the chia seeds will become gellatenous. I have a few different flavors of this but the chocolate is my favorite! I like to do almond milk and a little mint extract in my snacktime shake. Yummy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by gorgeguy Not my favorite veg. protein
I try to be open-minded but this chocolate just doesn't do it for me.
Like most veg. proteins, it is quite powdery. Unlike my favorite (Arizona Naturals), the taste is just too funky. Sort of the typical stevia taste, but seems more astringent than others.
Overall, the ingredient list speaks to quality, but I'd rather stick with the other brand I mentioned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsH Plant Based Protein is Delicious!
This product tastes great is low sodium and a complete meal in a powder. We love it! Great for active vegans. It is the best chocolate taste of any protein power I have had. I make vegan protein bars with it as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JeffH Great Protein Shake
I really enjoy this shake. My doctor recommended the proteins in this shake but most of the alternatives taste terrible. This tastes like a rick dark chocolate and has great ingredients with low sugar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RenewYourStrength Good Plant Protein!
I like this plant protein a lot. The chocolate is really good and has the slight nutty flavor from the hemp and chia protein. The only reason that I would not give it 5 stars on every level is because it is not organic. I have tasted the vanilla yet, but I just ordered some so I'm looking forward to seeing if I like that.
