When I had initially tried getting my hands on a bag of this protein, the regular one had sold out shortly after launch. I saw that there was another pouch available, but I didn't realize it was the vegan protein. I'm glad that that's what I ended up with, because u do prefer the vegan proteins over the whey. This mixes well with either your favorite plant based milk or water, ans I've found that I'm fine with just the water. It has a nice consistency and goes down smooth, and it doesn't feel chalky at all. It keeps me satisfied without all the empty carbs, and I'm actually a bit upset that I'll be running out very soon. I just purchased some unsweetned aloe jelly bites to add, so I can't wait to see how that turns out.
