I use fruitein. The biggest issue with nature's plus is that they use soy based, so if you are avoiding soy then you are going to have to find something else. otherwise it tastes the best out of all of the protein supplements and mix it with milk instead of water and it makes it a little thicker and smoother than mixing with water.

Vega is the most well known brand I know when it comes to vegan supplements.
Try blending in a blender instead of just stirring it in water or milk. That does help sometimes. Let it sit for a couple of minutes before drinking to let it 'dissolve' better. I always add frozen fruit and almond milk to help the flavor too.

If anybody wants my 2#'s of NOW Sports Pea Protein (expiration of 10/2013) it is yours for the cost of shipping! (unflavored) It was gritty and NOT to my liking. I could tolerate the rice protein better because it blended better.
I got some hemp protein powder today at the store and boy is it gritty! I don't have a lot of experience with protein shakes but I wanted something with just one ingredient. I added 2 T (the package said 3!) To my glass of chocolate milk and 1/2 of it settled on the bottom despite significant stirring -anyone have any tips with this? Also, I had to add 1 T of chocolate syrup to hide the yucky flavor - any other ideas?
I use MRM Veggie Protien, has a combo of hemp, pea and rice protein, 26 mg per scoop. Comes sweetened with stevia and is either vanilla or chocolate. Love the vanilla, haven't tried the chocolate. It is Vegan and Gluten Free. Runs about $20 per container from super supplements. Edited: I blend veggie powder with blueberries and almond milk in my NutriBullet. Blend it for a while and it doesn't seem gritty at all.
Someone mentioned Arbonne Essentials Protein Shake Mix on my facebook today.

I just finished a couple of containers of Prairie Naturals Organic Rice Protein. It's a bit gritty though....but the vanilla was nicer than the unflavoured one. http://www.prairienaturals.ca/?product_id= 137
A good option for vegan protein is Hemp Hearts. They're way more natural and less processed than any protein powder would be, and they have good fats. You can find them at health food stores. Hope this helps!
