Actually, the purpose of the powder is for the protein. Protein is what makes you feel satisfied. I have found, myself, the more protein in my diet, the fuller I feel and the less likely i am to over eat.
Unless you have an alternative for protein, I would suggest finding a good powder to use. They all taste a little "bad" and take some getting use to. But once you add the coconut milk and fruit, the better they taste. I have been using the Sunwarrior brand, Warrior Blend Raw Protein (plant based) Vanilla. It's actually pretty good. It mixes well (with a blender) and is not gritty or chalky. I found it at Vitacost.com and for the size and money, it's not a bad deal....47 servings for $39.11.
Just my 2 cents worth...
