Wow, I appreciate everyone's comments on this thread. It is so hard to buy those big tubs before trying them. I am a trueprotein fan and I use 100% gemma pea. the chocolate banana mixed with a half banana is amazing. I am surprised that so many don't like it. It also has great numbers. I might try the rice/gemma combo based on the comments

Not sure if this is what Saulo is referring to, but I know NitroFusion has a mocha java flavor, I have yet to try it but have wanted to.

Do you like the other NitroFusion flavors? Chocolate is my favorite, I'm too scared to try the tropical flavor. fake fruit flavors are usually blech!

Based on some of the earlier posts, I picked up a bag of Sunwarrior unsweetened/natural powder today. I really like that it's totally "raw whole grain sprouted".

I've also been using Peaceful Planet vanilla rice protein powder, and it's pretty good.

Hi All

Does anyone know if there are any ready to drink / ready mixed vegan protein drinks out there?

I use Nature's Plus SPIRU-TEIN. It's made out of rice, pea and soy with spirulina. Has tons of amino acids. The protein content isn't as high as I would like. It has 14 gram per serving. They also make tons of flavors. I have the chocolate peanut butter swirl. I wish I could say I love it, but I really don't even like it. Just using it because I bought it.

Most or all of the spiru-tein flavors contain bee pollen, which many vegans avoid.

Just pointing that out--not trying to judge. I avoid it but I think it's borderline.
