Lifetime Life's Basics® Plant Protein Mix Unsweetened -- 16.24 oz
Great price and taste. No weird additives too
I've been using Lifetime Basics for 5plus years. I typically opted for their Greens version but decided to look deeper into my subliments/RX and otherwise. I love that I can still get all the plant and vegan protein from this without any supplemental sweeteners. The flavor is mild and blendable.. Although it does take more water than suggested for a smoother mouthfeel. I mix it with 2.5 cups of water, a couple cups of spinach, a carrot, a cup of fruit, ice and a frozen banana for a delicious post workout smoothie. Out of all the products out there this is the most natural and pleasant tasting. It also bakes well- for those who like protein wherever they can cram it.

Excellent doctor recommended product
I use this Lifetime Life's Basics protein mix everyday for breakfast. I mix it with almond milk, fruit, vegetables, nuts or whatever for a very satisfying drink. It's great! And Vitacost is the best site.

My favorite plant based protein
Mixes well in a blender. Add a frozen ripe banana with honey and it tastes great.

Excellent tasting in soups.
This brand is one of my favorite protein powders. I really like the unsweetened and to add to soups or meals for added protein.

Life's Basics Plant Protein
What I like: Complete protein, filling ,vegan, no fructose or stevia and Vitacost sells it for substantially less than the local health food store.
Dislike: I did an analysis on four different unsweetened protein powders. Life's Basics was the lowest percent protein (you need to consume 5.45 calories to get one gram of protein. The other 3 brands were 5 calories). It was the most expensive per gram of protein and the 2nd highest in sodium. The sodium reall didn't effect me the way ketchup or mayonnaise does. So if Vitacost were out of my fave (Vitacost Unsweetened Whey) I wouldn't hesitate to but this again at the same price.
