Blends well for smoothies
I got this protein powder because my daughter is vegan. Much to my surprise I prefer the taste and consistency of this powder over the whey version. We get the vanilla flavored since we both like to mix with fruit or juices. I still mix it with milk sometimes but my daughter's still tastes great with milk substitutes.

Please don't ever discontinue! Love it.
I have probably tried every vegan protein powder and find this to be the best. It is hard to find in stores and was unavailable for a while online. I do only prepare it in the blender with coconut milk, 1/2 banana, sometimes strawberries, 1/2 tbsp of nut butter and some extra water and ice. This makes it more of a thick milkshake consistency. My husband had it in the shaker and said it was too gritty for him.

what's in it counts with me
To get it out of the way, the taste is... ehh. I use it for a recovery shake, and I just drink it as fast as I can (water and powder - no dress up). As alluded to in another review, hopefully they will [continue to] work on improving the taste.

So why 4 stars? I am so glad they have expanded into gluten free and now vegan options which I had not seen before. I am not a vegan per se, but am finding that I am leaning toward products that are more vegan in nature. This is forcing me to be a label reader, and leads to my second reason: One of the things I appreciate about GNC's products in general is their breakdown in their labels so that - for what it's worth - you know what's in the item and how much of an ingredient/vitamin/mineral/complex is in it. The nutritional information beyond the required is somewhat vague in a few other protein powders I've wanted to consider. Finally, it seems to be working as advertised; no digestive issues, helps with appetite, and provides the added nutrition I am looking for.

Great Results no Tummy Ache!
I switched away from Whey because I'm lactose intolerant and I see a huge difference in my strength, endurance, and muscle growth in only one week! Plus I no longer have tummy aches, cramps, or ... You know what belongs in the blank. The big culture shock for me was that you CANNOT blend this with milk to make a milk shake. I used to do banana, peanut butter, ice, lactaid milk and blend.. NO you cannot do that with this. You have to mix this with an BCAA supplement, a glass of water, and a few table spoons of a NON sweetened tart juice such as cranberry. simply shake with ice, do not blend. I take one scoop of this and the BCAA before and after each workout. Good Luck!

Chocolate Lover, Not a fan of Vanilla but was amazed and won over by this product, GR8 flavor. If you're expecting super sweet taste you won't find it here. Super Clean; GR8 4 lactose intolerants, blends very well.I use a shaker. I'm not a "smoothie" person just looking for effective clean pre/post workout and meal replacement protein. 100% satisfaction delivered with PUREDGE! If you've got to have the sweet tase I reccomend adding a little honey. PS beware of the "use by" dates. I've found that the Vegan protein turnover is not as quick as the whey in GNC stores. I purchased the chocolate Puredge in a store in late December 2016 & was disturbed by the moldy taste. I checked the "use by" date and it was Feb 2017.I thought it might just be me but after a week I threw it out. & went back to the Vanilla. I'm going to give it one more chance with the chocolate but next time online.

I like it
No soy, non GMO, Gluten free, it's everything I want in a protein supplement. I'm happy I came across with this product! It kind of smelled like bananas at first. I would recommend to blend it with berries. I love it.

Get what you pay for!
When looking for a protein supplement, I wanted the most natural plant-based protein possible, and I wanted it to taste good. First I tried Jarrow's Optimal Plant Proteins, but that brand has a warning label on it -- it has a chemical known to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. OMG!!! I threw it out. This is when I first entered a GNC store to find a safe product. Naturally I found what I was looking for in GNC's Puredge Complete Vegan Protein powder. The natural vanilla flavor tastes good and also offers antioxidant support. There is no soy, dairy, or gluten in this protein powder. Read the Supplement Facts & Ingredients. It is non-GMO, no lactose, no wheat, yeast, fish, eggs, or any banned substances. Plus, it has one full serving of veggies and it tastes good. It doesn't make your smoothies look muddy or murky like some other protein powders do. I absolutely love it! Thank you, GNC!

This Vegan protein is so good! I have tried so many other brands, RAW, Sun Warrior and more and this is by far my favorite. I really like Vega Protein but the prices are outrageous so this is the next best thing. It's vegan so it will never taste like a regular protein. It doesn't make me feel bloated like other brands either - it's easy on the digestive system. I love the taste of Stevia in there also, but I am used to that taste so it doesn't bother me. Thanks GNC for finally making a "clean" brand and one for vegans !
