True Vitality Plant Protein Shake with DHA Vanilla
Everything I was looking For
When it came to finding the right protein powder, my list was almost impossible. I wanted an all plant protein, soy free, dairy free, vegetarian or vegan if possible, and gluten free would be a plus. I also wanted something that was versatile enough to be used as a meal replacement if possible. And I didn't want anything too expensive either because I just can't see myself paying more than $25-$30 for one container of protein powder. Well this has everything that I mentioned and the price is outstanding. This does have a bit of an earthy taste which i blend mine with bananas vanilla almond milk and vanilla extract so it covers most of it up. The blend did turn slightly green, but considering all the plant I would expect it to. Not a big deal. i think I have found my dream come true and at this price I will be reordering.

I love the True Vitality powder! It is satisfying and the nutritional value can't be beat. Swanson sells it for the best price too!

From Herbalife to this
It was hard to go from Herbalife to this product since this is not as sweet and has more of an "earthy" taste to it but after a few shakes and finding what I like to mix it with I LOVE it. The product ingredients was what drove me to try it and the way I feel is what is keeping me buying it. Thank you!!!

Delicious & Nutritious
I already knew that I liked the Chocolate, but I only just recently decided to give the Vanilla a try! I like that it was a very smooth and mellow flavor. There's definitely nothing artificial in here, and you can tell by the flavor! It may not be sweet enough for some, but it was the perfect amount for me when mixed with some original flavor almond milk! I really enjoy this brand because they have the Omegas and probiotics in addition to having my daily dosages of most vitamins and minerals. This is a winner!

Great Vegan Protein
I am using this product as a supplement to my diet to add a protein stack. I am a firefighter and use two scoops in the morning with almond milk. It mixes very well, no chalky taste, and keeps me feeling full until noon or later for lunch. I would recommend this product for sure!

Great Vegan Meal
I love this product, and you will too! Compare the label on this product to brands costing much more, and then be amazed by the value! The flavor is good too. This is how I start the day, every day! Chocolate or Vanilla, they both rock!

great shake base
I use this to make my green shakes.
Versatile product, loaded with vitamins, probiotics and non-allergenic protein.

This protein powder is similar in taste to others I've used, but without all the added sweetness. It contains tons of nutrients, including DHA to support a healthy brain. It mixes well in a smoothie and I have also tried it whisked in juice--not my favorite way to drink it, but it'll do in a pinch. The vanilla flavor blends well with fruit & green smoothies. It makes the resulting beverage creamier without being chalky.

Great Protein Shakes
Green Foods True Vitality Plant Protein Shake with DHA Vanilla is a great way to start the day. I add 1 cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk, 2 tablespoons golden flaxseed meal, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, and 1 cup of fruit; usually frozen blueberries. I mix it up with my stick blender and in less than 5 minutes I have a nutritious breakfast free of any inflammatory foods. Sometimes I have a shake for lunch, too. I feel so much better since I started this routine.

gets the job done
This was my first protein powder, so I'm not sure what I expected in terms of taste. I drink green smoothies regularly, so I didn't think the green taste would bother me. Overall this powder isn't HORRIBLE tasting, but it is pretty distinct and hard to mask. I usually blend it with some vanilla almond milk an chia seeds, sometimes a banana. The texture can also be gritty/chalky sometimes, no matter how much I blend or what I add to it. However I did notice, from my first drink that I had energy, and I wasn't hungry for quite some time, and I only use one scoop (instead of the recommended 3). I recently cut out meats and poultry from my diet, and also try to limit dairy, and I wanted a way to get more protein that wasn't animal based. I liked the vitamins and minerals, and also the probiotics since I don't eat yogurt anymore. I'm unsure if I'll repurchase though.

What an easy way to get those probiotics and vitamins into your body. Just scoop them into your morning smoothie and off you go! I simply love this product. It has a great flavor and doesn't detract from the fruits I use in the mornings with a little coconut milk to blend. If not for this, I'd never have those great probiotics and vitamins me. I'm not a breakfast eater and always forget to take my daily vitamin and I really don't like to sit down and just eat fruit. This takes care of three problems for me all at the same time. I recommend it anyone who likes those morning smoothies and wants to put something more into themselves that's a good-for-you product.

It's not that sweet, so I added banana to it in a bullet type blender. I found it reduced my sugar cravings. i was hungry 2-3 hours later so as long as you are prepared to eat again that soon after drinking the shake, it makes for a great breakfast, as I bought this to have for breakfast, not being a breakfast eater. But if I did not eat 2-3 hours later, I was STARVING and prone to binging. I bought more in the chocolate flavor too.

If you're avoiding soy, gluten, etc and want something more than the plain protein powder, this is an excellent value for the price. On my second tub, will buy again.

the first that I've tried
I think this product does wonders. It helps gives me energy and keeps me full. My husband drinks it all the time as well. You have to get used to the taste though. I personally like the chocolate flavor better. I mix mine with unsweetened almond milk and only use two scoops. My husband takes the full 3 scoops with water. You have to find the right mix for your lifestyle. I like the extra calcium I get when I mix it with the almond milk. To each his/her own.

Takes good for a plant protein
The Plant Protein shake is good tasting in the vanilla. The chocolate doesn't taste so great. I don't notice anything about it physically but I know it is loaded with plant food so I know it is good for me.

This is a great option for a protein drink, probably the best out there. It doesn't have a bunch of artificial junk in it. Hey, if it's for your health, why put aspartame, saccharin, or other such things in there? This one doesn't, and it actually tastes great. What a bonus! In addition, it has a nice selection of vitamins, minerals, and other helpful supplements. I often use it as a substitute for my daily multi-vitamin. God bless you!

Use this daily
I use this every day. I like that I can order and my purchases arrive within days. Great price and don't have to rely on a store to have it in stock for me.

Love this protein shake
I have tried many other protein shakes and always felt like they had a bad taste and were filled with ingredients I didn't know of. This is all natural and has tons of protein AND fiber and gives me a big dose of a lot of my vitamins for the day. I mix it with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, half a banana, and a big handful of spinach and top it off with some crushed ice. It turns out green but tasted like a banana vanilla shake and there is no bad aftertaste or anything

Lots of great stuff but....
There is a lot of quality ingredients in this, but it is just not palatable on its own. I'm used to the protein you can just mix up with some milk and drink, and this is not one of those. It's green. A pale green, but green nonetheless. And it doesn't taste like vanilla or much of anything. Guess I'll have to start making smoothies so I can use this up.

I use it in my fruit smootie's for lunch!!!

I started buying True Vitality from Swanson because they have the lowest price of anyone. I have used many protein powders over the years and True Vitality is my favorite. I make my own almond milk sweetened with dates. I add my True Vitality and different frozen fruits for a great smoothie. I also will start with the almond milk and add raw powdered cocoa , cinnamon, and True Vitality, blend and put in the freezer for awhile to get a thick shake. I can go hours without eating after having my True Vitality.
