Puredge Complete Vegan Protein Natural Chocolat
I loved this!. Best Vegan Chocolate I could find. Now you do not make it anymore and I have to use a different product. I am rating you low because you no longer offer this and it was very good.

Okay Taste/Texture, Great Nutrition
I was looking for a soy-free, plant based protein so this was a perfect choice. It tastes very similar to the vega protein. Although not my favorite, I do like how it tastes (I got chocolate), it is not too sweet and it does have a earthy taste but that is not a deal breaker for me. You could always add fruit to sweeten it up. The texture is a little gritty, even when you blend it but at the end of the day, you are buying a protein powder. I think nutritionally it is amazing, so that is what matters most. I do prefer whey isolate protein powder, but this is an okay sub for days when I want to cut back on dairy. Would buy again.

I am really satisfied with Puredge vegan protein, Ii was consuming Sunwarriorr Ilumin8, it is a wonderful product but I prefered Puredge. The gay in the GNC store explained everything about the product, he is a really expert! I have a month drinking it after workout, i am waiting for great results. Love cruelty free products ??

Best Dairy Free Protein Powder
This review is for the Natural Chocolate flavor. (Sorry Natural Vanilla)
After trying several other dairy free protein powders, I've found GNC's Natural Chocolate to be the one I enjoy the most. It's not full of sugar or other fillers, and one serving can be a snack. I only mix mine with unsweetened vanilla almond milk as I don't enjoy it with water. It's good with just the almond milk, but my favorite add-ins to make it a "meal" are, powdered peanut butter, 1 banana, ground flaxseed and/or hemp seed, and 1c of frozen blueberries. Sometimes as an evening treat, I'll mix 1 scoop with the powered peanut butter, some chia seeds, and a smaller amount of milk so it can be eaten like pudding.

Earthy taste
Has a more earthy rich taste. Thick too when you mix it.

Great replacement for whey protein
I'm not vegan or lactose intolerant, but wanted to reduce inflammation caused by dairy. Proof that this works; I would take off my socks at the end of the day and would have indentations where my socks were. After a couple weeks I have noticed the inflammation and indentions are gone.

Awesome product!
We love GNC's Complete Vegan Protein powder. We use it daily in a breakfast smoothie to help supplement our diet as we are vegetarian and my husband has Celiac Disease. We have tried a lot of different protein products and this one, by leaps and bounds is our absolute favorite. We highly recommend this product.

The vanilla flavor is definitely not my favorite. I'd really like to try the chocolate though, as I do think this protein blends well in smoothies! It's got a lower amount of carbs compared to some competitors and the perfect amount of protein!

Jennifer on Mar 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It doesn't say it "doesn't contain any nuts" but it is not listed in the ingredients. It's all shown in the pictures when you zoom in. May need to contact manufacturer.
