The Best Plant-Based Protein Powders

May 8 2014 - 2:45pm

If dairy is not your thing, you can still find protein powders that don't contain whey, that protein-rich dairy product that is found in many powders. Check out this comparison to see which one is right for you — many stores sell individual serving packets so you can give them a try without investing in an entire tub. Most have a gritty or chalky texture when enjoyed in water or your favorite nondairy milk, so add them to your morning smoothie [1] or try this chocolate almond protein bar recipe [2], and your taste buds won't know the difference.
