In Search of Vegan Protein Powder with No Added Sugar

UPDATED ON March 27th, 2019

Why no added sugar?

I wanted to make a list of vegan protein powder with no added sugar because I couldn’t find one, and added sugar is addictive, increases risk of heart disease and tooth decay, among other things. I’d rather save my daily sugar allowance for a delicious vegan donut than use it up on a boring shake – or better yet, try to make it through the day without any added sugar – a rare feat! (Click here to read my rant about added sugar and tips for eating less of it.)

Most of the powders without added sugar and flavors have lukewarm to bad reviews as far as taste. It’s all about mixing it with the right things. I use Nkd Nutrition pea protein powder, and I don’t think it tastes bad, but it doesn’t taste like my dream come true breakfast either. I mix it with water, a banana, and any berries that might be in the fridge.

But, I’m assuming you’re looking for a vegan protein powder with no added sugar for a reason. I’m pretty psyched that I can get so much nutrition for so little money, without added sugar, and it only takes two minutes to make, two minutes to drink, and two minutes to clean up!
