PlantFusion Protein Powder

After years of clumpy post-workout protein shakes, we started to think protein powder was a necessary evil that couldn’t be improved. We tried adding strong flavors—everything from peanut butter to pumpkin—to them, but still struggled to stomach the inevitably chalky shake. (And don’t even get us started on what happened when we mixed the powder solely with water, sans blender…)

Then we underwent a sort of protein powder renaissance when we found PlantFusion. This dairy-, soy-, and gluten-free protein powder isn’t just drinkable, but it’s also downright delicious—and boasts 21 grams of protein per scoop! Where does its protein power come from, exactly? Places you likely wouldn’t suspect: organic sprouted quinoa and amaranth, yellow peas, and globe artichoke. But all you can taste when gulping it down is the amazing flavor. (Options include chocolate, vanilla bean, chocolate raspberry, and—our personal favorite—cookies ‘n crème.)

With four grams of sugar per scoop, PlantFusion tastes rich but not too sweet. And its powdery texture means it mixes easily with any liquid. In fact, it blends so smoothly you don’t even need a shaker bottle on hand to mix a great shake.
