5 Best Vegan Protein Powders in 2019: Healthy & Natural

Today I’m sharing the best vegan protein powders on the market this year. These protein powders are the healthiest and most natural sources of protein you can find.

Before looking at my recommendations, I want to take a minute to mention the following about protein powders.

The truth of the matter is that although protein can be beneficial to a healthy diet, we don’t need as much protein as most of us have been led to believe we do. Wrap your head around that for a second.

Most of the commercial protein powders have artificial flavors, stabilizers, and thickeners, like guar gum, vegetable oils, and fillers, and a nice long list of other unhealthy ingredients.

Don’t be fooled by the claims of having natural flavoring.  

Adopting a diet with whole foods can supply your body with all the protein you need, without having to use protein powder.

However, plant-based proteins are a better alternative to a supplement of processed proteins.

Even though many people consume way too much protein, that doesn’t mean that protein doesn’t remain an essential part of eating well, especially in the morning.

It balances your blood sugar during the entire day. Protein also anchors your circadian rhythm, also known as the 24-hour sleep/wake cycle that runs in the background of your brain.

They don’t call it “powerful protein” for nothing.

Vegan protein powder is an easy way to supplement along with nonessential and essential amino acids.

At the same time, they make it easy to fit in a healthy and satisfying meal each day, if you are trying to improve your overall health or lose weight.

The invaluable vitamins and nutrients in some protein powders also help to promote better digestion and improve your body’s ability to handle stress better.

I’ve discovered that most people — particularly those who have thyroid problems or other hormone imbalances — do extremely well using a vegan or plant-based protein powder.

They are effective alternatives to whey protein, without the adverse side effects that usually occur with protein powders derived from dairy.

I will review some prime vegan protein powders that are worth considering.

Later on, I’ll share with you how to make homemade protein powders using my minimal ingredient recipe with only plant-based protein sources.

So, now that all that is out of the way, you’re probably eager to read my protein powder picks for 2019.

Without further delay, here are my reviews. By the way, I list the products in a random order; they all have equal quality.

Sunwarrior – Classic Plus, Vegan Protein Powder with Peas & Brown Rice, Raw Organic Plant Based

This raw organic plant-based protein powder builds on Sunwarrior’s authentic whole-grain brown rice protein.

They add amino acid balancing effects by including peas.

The brown rice gives you protein and fiber while being kind on the digestive system.

It’s sprouted and raw to help take your workouts to new heights by providing the amino acids needed for muscle growth.

The yellow peas are a low-calorie superfood with plenty of plant-based protein that meets all your amino acid requirements with a supply of Valine, Arginine, Isoleucine, Leucine, and Glutamine — branched chain amino acids or BCAAs.

Sacha Inchi Protein Powder

You can find Sachi Inchi seeds or Inca Peanuts in Peru’s Amazon rain forest. Native cultures have been using it for centuries.

The Sacha Inchi protein powder is easily digested. It‘s possibly the easiest out of the other powders on the market, if you have an intolerance to dairy or other digestive issues.

Not only does Sachi Inchi have omega-3 but there’s a perfect balance of other fatty acids, omega-6, and omega-9, which reduce inflammation and lower risk of chronic diseases.

It’s an excellent vegan protein powder with a decent amount of vitamin C, calcium, and iron.

Just Hemp Foods Hemp Protein Powder Plus Fiber

With this Just Hemp Foods powder supplement, you get a substantial amount of protein (16 g) and fiber (6 g) compared to contender products.

Its ingredients are free from everyday allergens, which makes it a healthy choice if you have intolerances.

Just Hemp Foods is all non-GMO.

There are only 130 calories in each serving. So, it won’t crack the calorie bank if you’re trying to lose weight.

It’s listed at an affordable price for 14 helpings of plant-based proteins, omega-3 and 6s and fortified with vitamins and minerals.

SANO Organic Plant Based Protein Powder

You can get SANO in either chocolate or vanilla.

They are packaged to be ready for on-the-go, so you can use at home or toss the perfectly portioned packs in your bag to take to the gym for your post workout lift.

There are minimal ingredients. If you look at the shortlist of ingredients for the chocolate-flavored powder, you’d find organic cocoa, organic pea protein, Goji berry, organic hemp protein, and flaxseed.

Not bad, right?

There’s an added benefit to using SANO.

They work to leave a reduced carbon footprint. Its plant-based powders aren’t an elemental cause of global warming like other common whey protein powders taken from cow’s milk.

Naked Nutrition PB Peanut Butter Protein Powder

The peanuts used in the Naked Nutrition powder supplement are grown exclusively on farms found in the United States.

They are non-GMO nuts, with fat and oil removed mechanically.

There’s an independent third-party that tests the protein powder for heavy metals.

There is over 40% protein, with no added salt or sugar.

You won’t find any artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners in the peanut butter protein powder.

You’ll like that it is free of preservatives, dairy, gluten, and soy. It also has almost a gram of BCAAs in each serving.

And if you don’t want to fork out the money to buy a vegan protein powder, why not try making your own?

Seeing as I’m into whole foods, I don’t see the point in buying protein powders when it is healthier and cheaper for me to just make my own.  

Here is my 2 Ingredient Homemade Protein Powder Recipe which you can make yourself in just minutes using a smoothie blender. This is also a raw vegan protein powder. I have a video showing you just how easy it is.

I am also into bodybuilding so I do keep an eye on my protein levels to make sure I’m getting enough.  But quality is always more important to me than quantity.

The right protein powders can help you supplement but nothing compares to getting your nutrition from whole foods. I hope the powders discussed here and my unique recipe help you achieve your weight loss and health goals by making healthy protein shakes.
