5 Vegan Proteins That Might Pass for a Milkshake

OK, milkshake might be a stretch. Perhaps, instead of a milkshake, we go with, something that doesn't taste like how you think a vegan protein will taste. We know! It is so hard. Health consciousness, environmental awareness, weight loss/gain/maintenance, social responsibility. You just want to be fit and do your bit for the earth. However, you don't need another gigantic tub of gritty, grainy, awful tasting protein powder collecting dust in the back of your pantry. No more fear. We have five pretty good options that you can mix up quick and easy in the Tornado Shaker.
