Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent source of Plant Protein Life's Basics Plant Protein Mix Powder is an item I've been using for several years. It's a great source of Plant based protein, it tastes great and it's Vegan. I highly recommend it. Swanson's has it at a great price. I use it everyday! September 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Smoothies! Excellent product for meal replacements or midday snack. I add milk or coconut water and frozen bananas or berries Delicious! And quite satisfying. August 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Satisfying, Filling Very satisfying, filling. Knowing Product is an excellent Plant Based Mix is great right from the start. I use it for health, meal replacement, and experience the added delight of unintentional weight loss...always a welcome result! Many Thanks for making excellent Product. June 29, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Horrible Taste. I purchased this item in both vanilla and chocolate based upon it's excellent Amino Acid Panel as well as the positive taste reviews posted here. I personally found both flavors to be offensive whether in a smoothie or in just plain water. It may have something to do with the 3 different sweeteners added to it. Thanks to Swanson's easy return policy, I will be returning it for a refund. April 24, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by What were they tasting??? 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. April 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by PERFECT VEGAN PROTEIN I use this vegan protein powder just about every day. I mix it with some coconut yogurt, a tablespoon of hemp protein, cinnamon, and water for a very filling and healthy lunch. It contains no artificial flavorings or sweeteners which is even better. As for the taste, I love the vanilla. December 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT The consistency of this product is on the thick side, however when mixed in a blender, it tastes delicious. I bought the vanilla flavor and it satisfies me. I mix it with a banana, coconut oil and maybe strawberries and I'm all set. The flavor is a true vanilla that I haven't tasted better. My comments which are minor are why do they need to use 3 sweeteners: Fructose, Xylitol and Stevia? Also the container holds only 15 servings, why not make a bigger product that holds a full months supply? This product gives a good protein serving of 22gms using plants and no soy or milk, and a very good amino acid profile which is good for me as I lift weights. They do use rice as one of the proteins which has been in the news lately regarding the Arsenic content. I'm concerned about this and am no longer buying rice milk, so I wish that they would replace it, but then again it may not taste as good. Anyway, It's delicious and will keep you content for a while. September 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by really like this! I've been using this in my green smoothies - it has a very pleasant earthy taste, like a nutty almost chocolatey taste. Great protein sources/product, I love the ingredients. I haven't tried it plain, but I would recommend to anyone for smoothies for the nutrition, flavor, etc. August 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Flavor I've tried several different plant based protein powders, and this is my favorite. June 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life's Basics Plant Protein Mix Powder I really loved the taste of this one compared to others I've tried. The handy measuring scoop helps out too! June 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life Basics Plant Protein Allergen Free and packed with BCAA's. Has a slight sweetness, like pudding. May 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT This is so easy, delicious AND healthy May 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tastes great! A good tasting protein mix, a good variety of ingredients, low in total calories and convenient to use. May 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by plant-based protien this is a fantastic product for this who are vegan, vegetarian, or are just looking for a great plant-based, whey-free protien product. April 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by my favourite protein powder This is my favourite protein powder - and for a while I tried a lot of different ones. This one isn't too sweet and tastes yummie, even after I stopped using soya milk . I now mix it with water, as suggested on the label (milk makes it taste a bit richer, I think)...sometimes I add a banana and often some psylium husks for a bit more bulk. I've been using it for years and the price is right, too. April 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Would highly recommend! Life's Basics vanilla plant protein is great tasting and is high in protein, which makes it convenient to help rebuild muscle after an intense workout. I would recommend Life's Basics to anyone looking for a natural alternative to other whey's. April 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Vegetarian Protein Powder We have tried many different protein powders and this is one of the best tasting one. It is also 100% vegetarian. February 26, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by great taste it is the best tasting protien shake that I have tried. February 8, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by disappointed I ordered this based on other reviews and I wanted to try a vetetarian version of protein powder to try and get better numbers. I have been using swanson whey protein powder that is absolutely delicious. This protein powder is just way too sweet, doesn't need stevia and that ruined it for me. December 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by golden years have been using this line of protein powder for several months ,priced well and am well satisfied with it September 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yummy plant-based protein It's hard to find plant-based protein at an affordable price. Swanson has the best price on Life's Basics Vanilla. It is tasty in fruit/ veggie smoothies, and just as good as a simple protein shake. September 7, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Vegetarian Protein Powder The good: non dairy, good source of protein, omega 3's and non sweetened. The bad: the unsweetened tastes horrible, and does not mix very well. I can't detect any vanilla flavor. If I dont' like the taste, I won't use. May 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Delicious and Nutritious Excellent powder that mixes well with fruit, nut butters, really anything you want! Definitely curbs my protein cravings, and as a vegan, that's hard to come by! March 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by plant protein .....great taste.......easy mixability with a spoon. i add it to bran cereal in the early morning. A++ December 29, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not bad I've never found a protein powder that I'm THRILLED with and think tastes great... but as far as that goes, this one is pretty good. October 25, 2011
