Whether you’re an athlete, foodie or simply looking to add some extra protein to your diet, a high-quality protein powder can be a delicious and easy way to give your body an extra little boost.
But what if you are vegan? Most proteins currently available are made with whey or other dairy-based products, but that doesn't mean great vegan protein options aren't available.
There are many brands these days that cater to the vegan community, so it’s now quite easy to find an alternative ... but as with everything, not all are a great option!
One of the best vegan protein options I've come across are the 'vegan superfood protein powders' from White Wolf Nutrition. The entire range is 100% natural, GMO-free, vegan, gluten-free, soy-free and dairy-free making them suitable for nearly anyone. Read on below as I take the chocolate flavour for a spin!
WHITE WOLF NUTRITION CHOCOLATE VEGAN SUPERFOOD PROTEIN REVIEW BY DARCY - BIRCHER BAR FOUNDER & OWNER:
What I Like About It:
Super High-Quality: White Wolf Nutrition’s chocolate superfood protein is made with 100% natural ingredients is completely non-GMO with no artificial sweeteners, flavours, or preservatives. Sweetened with Australian-grown organic stevia, it's completely sugar-free, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free and ... yep, you guessed it - vegan!
Complete Plant-Based Protein: Using pea protein as the base, the White Wolf chocolate superfood blend is naturally complete, providing all of the essential amino acids required for muscle growth, repair and recovery. Add to that your BCAAs and superfoods such as chia, sunflower and quinoa to name a few, and you've got a brilliant all-in-one protein that's also a nutritional powerhouse.
Great Taste & Easy To Dissolve: Some protein powders are difficult to dissolve, often leaving you with powdery clumps. This blend mixes easily into water or milk for a smooth and creamy texture. The natural cacao flavour is rich and satisfying, and not overly sweet either.
What You Need To Consider:
Pea protein is reported to be slightly elevated in sodium - so if you have high blood pressure at all, be sure to first consult your doctor or GP before using this protein. It is unlikely to cause problems, but it’s always better to check beforehand just to be safe.
- A naturally complete protein packed full of natural BCAAs and superfoods.
- Easy to dissolve and with a delicious natural chocolate flavour.
- Gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, and vegan! The ultimate allergen friendly protein powder.
- Made with 100% natural and organic ingredients.
- Relatively higher in sodium than some other protein powders

A single serving size is 30g, and if simply mixing with water or milk for a shake - about 250ml of liquid should do the trick!

OUR FAVOURITE ALTERNATIVES & COMPLEMENTS:
If you’ve already tried the chocolate mix and would like to try out a few other flavours, check out the others from the range below:
One of their best-sellers, this blend delivers a sweet and beautifully balanced vanilla flavour. Most people are either team chocolate or vanilla when it comes to protein powders, so if this blend hasn't hit the mark for you - give the vanilla a run!
A coffee lovers dream! Using 100% ground Arabica coffee, this makes for a great shake to throw an espresso shot in with on the way out the door for a busy day!
The most decadent of the bunch, the salted caramel blend is my go-to for desserts and brekky bowls. Mix in with yogurt and fruit, or sprinkle over vegan ice-cream for a tasty and healthy protein hit.
I love the White Wolf range for the super high-quality of their protein, as well as the added nutritional and recovery benefits from the other ingredients.
As an active person, I'm always chasing something to give me the edge, and am noticing better strength and recovery after using this range over the last couple of months.
I love the chocolate flavour as I'm a big fan of raw cacao, but if that's not your flavour, try any of the others above for a completely different taste with all of the same benefits!
