I like Vega One, too, but it is too pricey. So I have been using Phood, The Everything Shake brand by Plant Fusion. I just re-ordered some from Amazon and it was around $38 (with free shipping if you're a Prime member). They also make a less expensive one which actually has more protein and comes in more flavors. I've tried both and can't really tell a difference as far as getting hungry, etc. So if you want a good one and want to save, I'd recommend that one. You can find it online for $15-17, which is only around $1 per serving. I would think Amazon would ship it to Spain, but I'm not sure. Give it a try! I agree that the Raw products are really chalky and gritty. I tried making JJ's Protein Power Popsicles with it and couldn't even choke it down! If anybody has some good dessert recipes, I'd love to see them! That's probably the thing I miss most on this plan. We're on Week 3 of Cycle 2 now, challenging eggs this week. So far soy was no problem, but I seem to have an issue with gluten (bummer!). Thanks for the pointer about weighing your scoops -- I hadn't thought of that.

The brand About Time has a Vegan chocolate protein powder that isn't too bad. The best one is still the Virgin Diet brand, but it's $20bucks more. Note- make sure you are weighing your scoops for total grams. Otherwise you will be going through it much faster. I made that mistake on two different brands.

I too am searching for a vegan shake that tastes good. I live in Spain, and believe me it´s not easy to find a PP that is not soy. Is there anyway to add in something chocolate to hide the bad taste? Has anyone figured out how to do that?
Wish I could buy VEGA ONE, but doesn´t send to Spain. This is not easy......

I am struggling with buying a $30+ tub of unknown over the internet. I was able to try some single serving packets from my local nfs for $3-$5 a piece
Vega one was delicious but I feel it was lacking as I was left hungry. All of the RAW products tasted like chalk.
I have been using six star nutrition from walmart. Its not ideal...it contains sucralose and one of the other hidden sugars. maltodextrin perhaps....also it is not NONGMO. Please tell me what your favorites are...also are there any you have tried but had to throw out because they were intolerable?. I trying to find one that is under $2 a serving.
