I have been very pleased with Vega Protein. It tastes great, especially when blended with almond milk and fruit. It's a little expensive, but it is far better than a brown rice based protein that I used previously.

Does protein powder have much of a taste? Do different kinds taste different?</div>
Yeah, different kinds of protein powder have their distinguished taste.<br><br>
They can also be flavored with other things.
I don't use protein powder daily, but I'm a big fan of hemp powder. I feel like I process it more efficiently than other powders. It could all just be in my mind <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="">
I'm enjoying a pea protein powder right now... I keep trying different vegan proteins. They're all expensive, but some are outrageously expensive. A lot of them have lots of added sugar, too. Read your labels.
I cannot stand most protein powders; I just really, really hate the taste. Recently, though, I got 'Life Time, Life's Basics Plant Protein Powder, with Greens' (it has pea, rice, and hemp with chia seeds, plus a lot of things like barely and wheat grass) and it's the only thing I've been able to get down. I still don't <i>love</i> the taste, but I'm getting used to it and when blended with tart fruits (like pineapple), I even almost enjoy it. The powder by itself has a sort of sweet flavor, and I bet people who didn't mind protein powders in general would think it tasted great.
I was using a soy protein I was getting at Walmart until I looked at the ingredient and there was MILK in my soy protein! I was so mad (at myself for not reading the label AND at them for putting milk in a soy product); Now I'm using Revival Soy plain unsweetened, every afternoon I have a shake with Silk soy milk, 1 scoop of protein powder, a frozen banana and 1/2 c of frozen fruit, it's rich and creamy and my "treat" I look forward to every day!
