What is it and what’s in it?
The Protein Works Vegan Protein is developed from a blend of 5 different plant-based protein sources:
- Soy Protein

- And Brown rice protein
Containing more than 25g of protein per serving all from natural sources, it’s fair to say, The Protein Works know there shiz when it comes to vegan proteins.
You won’t find any nasty thickeners or fillers, and you won’t find much sugar either, just high protein natural ingredients and some stevia sweetness
We’ve tried and tested 3 of The Protein Works top plant-based flavours to review for you, so you know what to pop in your basket next time!
Strawberries and Cream Vegan Protein
Wimbledon Favourite and perfect for Summer the strawberries and cream flavour has been highly reviewed by customers on their page. Having previously been a fan of whey Strawberries and cream, I figured it was time to try a more compassionate, environmentally friendly approach, and delve in to the strawberries and cream whey-free!
Just as expected, this protein powder is sweet. If you like your protein shake just like your nesquik, then this is for you!
With a thicker texture than expected, it really feels quite creamy and almost unlike any vegan protein I’ve tried before – maybe that’s the soy influence?
There is a slight aftertaste, that I can’t quite figure out – although it wouldn’t put me off purchasing, it is quite intriguing – possibly bubblegum like?
You can get this protein and the others below in:
- 4kg pouch.

Rating out of 10:
A solid effort from The Protein Works Team, tastes good, great blend, however I do wish it was a touch less sweet and made without Soy – for that reason, it’s a 7/10
Chocolate Silk Vegan Protein
This vegan protein has a slightly earthy taste. Not soily, but just quite…well, I guess…natural? It still tastes chocolaty, but not as sweet as I was expecting, which isn’t such a bad thing. It’s easily drinkable, blends well with no grainy textures and tastes pretty good. Perfect if you want something a little less sweet than the usual.
You can mix your protein with either water, a nut milk or if you’re really that kind of person, I suppose you could mix dairy milk with it too – although, I think that kinda misses the point. I mix mine with half water, half almond milk. It’s a great way to do it if you find the taste of nut milks too strong.
Other suggestions, if you’re not into drinking your protein shakes is to mix a scoop with your porridge, mix it in with some dairy-free yogurt or even bake with it!
I’m going to give this an 8/10 – Easily drinkable, tastes good, not too sweet. I think I would like it a little sweeter (just a pinch – but that’s personal preference)
Vanilla Creme Vegan Protein
This is possibly my favourite of the 3 is the Vanilla Creme Vegan Protein. Not too sweet, but not too bland. It genuinely tastes creamy, smooth and actually of vanilla. The only thing I have found, is that It’s slightly harder to blend than the other two I’ve tried (chocolate silk and strawberry creme). After a good two handed shake up with the blender ball, though, it was great!
I’m giving this a 9/10! It’s almost perfect and I’d definitely recommend you to give this flavour a try today!
