I have been using unflavored whey before trying this and had absolutely no objections to the lack of flavoring. I expected to be fine with the unflavored pea protein thinking as a vegetarian almost my whole life, "health food" is a taste I am used to. Pea protein so far, plain, is almost gag worthy. The texture isn't gritty, it actually absorbs water so that it forms like a sludge if you don't put a lot of liquid in. I want to cut carbs so i don't want to try mixing it with sugar juice. My sister has used it in a fruit shake and says she didn't taste it at all! My boyfriend mixed it in Fresh carrot juice and was happy with the mix (peas and carrots!) I am going to try two tactics, watering it down so much that the taste is very mild...and if that doesn't work, I'm thinking Tomato juice. I am kind of...determined...to make this low cost, high quality, animal friendly protein Work for me.

***UPDATE***I have been drinking a scoop diluted in about 16 ounces of water, half before and half after working out in the morning. I am now completely used to the pea protein taste when it is watered down. I have also started sprinkling small amounts on vegetable stews at dinner time and taste blends easily. Taking the time to get used to it was worth it.

I am a vegetarian and was excited about the idea of a plant-based non-soy protein powder. I have used many protein powder supplements in my life. I don't like many of them because they have added flavors, sweeteners or stevia. I tried this product in many different foods and drinks, and it ruined the taste of all of them. I was even trying it in amounts of 1/8 of a scoop. It was terrible in juices, smoothies, even oatmeal. I can usually stomach the taste of "healthy" products, but this was inedible. I guess I'm going back to whey.

          I've used this product several times per week for the last couple years, and I love it. It's a Pea protein isolate that's as clean as they come. I mix mine with water, kale, stevia, All-One by Nutratech, raw coconut, chia seeds, and frozen fruit.

                Great value. This is not the best tasting product. But I loved it because there are no additives and doesn't taste bad. I used it in hot chocolate. I am pregnant vegetarian and I was trying to find protein supplement with no additives. It was nearly impossible to find one without lecithin. Thanks for making this product.

                I like this a lot. Its cheaper than whey protein, 25g of protein per scoop and I mix it in with my green shakes in the morning to keep me relatively full till lunch.

                It doesn't taste great and you can immediately tell there's a chalky consistency, but what did you expect? Did I mention its CHEAP?

                I use this for breakfast shakes and post workout shakes. The protein has been effective in my muscle gains and I feel much less bloated, and more regular than when I was using whey proteins.

                Since I have an allergy to anything from a cow this is the perfect protein supplement for me. It's on par price wise with other powders.

                Mixed thoroughly it's fine but occasionally it will clump if you're not careful, and will thicken the mixture if too much is added.

                Other than that it's a great product; I prefer the unflavored variety so I can mix smoothies to my taste preferences.

                I LOVE THIS!!! I have sensitivities/allergiesto gluten, grain, corn, rice, soy, and dairy and I originally bought this for a meal replacement when I don't have time to eat and get protein. I have to prepare my meals from scratch and I don't always have a kitchen around or time to eat so I figured this would work great. I was worried about the taste and consistency but I needed something so I bought it. I have never been so happy with a protein powder! I used to have whey protein shakes years ago and I hated them. They were gross textured and tasted HORRIBLE! This is perfect! I LOVE IT! I did mix it with frozen berries and it wasn't the best. I understand the gritty texture and taste if you do that but I mix with almond milk and bananas and peanut butter and its awesome! I'm on the 21 Day Fix and I substitute the following containers for this shake: 1 red, 1 yellow substitute(3 times a week for a tasty beverage), 1 tsp, 1 red, 1 purple. The shake is 8oz of sweetened almond milk or 16 oz unsweetened(your yellow substitute), 1 half large banana(I do 1 small), 1 tsp peanut butter, 1 tsp of honey(instead of putting it in my tea), 1 orange container filled with ground flaxseeds, and 1 1/2 scoops of pea protein powder. You can either put a few pieces of ice for a cold, dense smoothie or you can put a lot of ice in it for a milkshake. You can also add cinnamon or cocoa powder to make it flavored. I also sometimes take a chai tea bag and make a small amount of tea and ice it down and then pour the cold tea into the smoothie with cinnamon for a chai milkshake. I would eat this all day every day but it doesn't fill me up like meat does. But it's GREAT if you want to do it pre/post workout with the branched chain amino acids and if you're on the go. If you follow my recipe (even if you arent on the 21 day fix) you will love this powder! You don't have to use exact portions. Just do what you like. I would avoid fruit other than bananas with this. Berries don't mix well. It brings out the texture and the flavor is mild but it clashes with the berries. Maybe strawberry banana would be good. Whoever said this tastes horrible is not a good source to rely on. I hope you enjoy this! I bought 4 tubs of it after the first smoothie I made because I love it so much!
