With so many to choose from though, it can be hard to figure out exactly what you want.

Fear not -because we’ve rounded up some of the most popular vegan chocolate protein powders available, so you can choose the perfect one for you.

1. Ora Organic Superfood Chocolate Protein Powder

Our Favorite on the list

Available on Amazon


According to Ora, mama knows best – Mother Nature, that is. By taking inspiration from nature, they combine raw, organic and sustainable whole-food ingredients to make clean, low-fat protein powders.

Each serving contains 21g of plant-based protein, 2.5g of fat and only 6g of carbohydrates, making it popular with those whose aim is to lose weight. With the addition of digestive enzymes, as well as superfood ingredients like kale, acai, blueberries, rice, pea, hemp, amaranth, flax, quinoa, and spirulina, it’s easy to see how this vegan protein powder has emerged as a favorite among vegans and non-vegans alike.

Each tub weighs 650g and contains approximately 20 servings.

What We Liked

This chocolate powder receives overwhelmingly positive reviews for its superior flavor. Unlike the majority of chocolate vegan powders, this one doesn’t have a gritty or chalky texture either.

Despite the addition of stevia, this product seems to have hit the balance and doesn’t have much of an aftertaste. Additionally, it’s not as sweet as other similar brands, meaning you can sweeten it yourself to a level that suits you best.

What We Didn't Like

Admittedly, there aren’t any downsides to this powder. However it is a little more expensive than some of its competitor’s products.

2. Vega One All-In-One Chocolate Protein Powder

Available on Amazon


Vega is one of the most well-known vegan protein brands. Their products can be a little more expensive than others on the market, but they boast impressive nutritional profiles and premium quality ingredients.

Each scoop of this nutrient-dense protein powder provides 20g of protein from pea, hemp, SaviSeed, and flax, as well as 50% of your daily intake of vitamins and minerals from sources like spirulina, kale, broccoli, and strawberries.

If this wasn’t enough, each serving also contains 25% of your daily fiber intake, 1.5g of omega-3s, probiotics to aid digestion, and is sweetened with stevia extracts rather than refined sugars.

It comes in two sizes – a large 876g tub with 19 servings, or a small 461g tub with 10 servings. They also offer sachet packs, which are great on the go.

What We Liked

As well as being nutrient-rich, this powder also tastes great too. It mixes well without much effort, and adds a delicious chocolatey twist to smoothies and vegan milkshakes.

What We Didn't Like

While it tastes great in vegan milkshakes and smoothies, this particular powder doesn’t taste so good with water alone. It can leave a bit of an aftertaste (I’m pointing the finger at you, Stevia), which is a deal-breaker for some.

3. Sunwarrior Chocolate Classic Protein Powder

Available on Amazon


If you’re looking for a chocolate protein powder that fits in better with a raw vegan lifestyle, then Sunwarrior’s classic protein powder is the one for you.

Instead of heating, they use an age-old enzymatic process to produce their powder.

Made with raw wholegrain brown rice, it contains all the essential amino acids and 16g of protein per serving. Their products are non-GMO certified, and they even offer a free smoothie e-book with 52 different recipes to help you make the most out of your protein powder.

It comes in 3 sizes – an extra-large 1kg tub with 47 servings, a large 750g tub with 35 servings, and a smaller 500g tub with 23 servings.

What We Liked

As well as being more suitable for those who follow a raw diet, this protein powder is a great alternative for those who dislike the taste of hemp or pea protein, which is common ingredients in vegan protein powders.

What We Didn't Like

While it fares well in a blender, this powder doesn’t mix too well on its own. Additionally, the gritty texture of this powder can be a problem for some, especially if you plan to mix it with vegan milk alone. Like Vega, Sunwarrior also adds stevia extracts to their protein powders to sweeten them, which can leave a slight aftertaste.

Available on Amazon

4. Aloha Organic Plant-Based Chocolate Protein Powder

Available on Amazon


Aloha believes in real, natural ingredients, and their protein supplement is no exception to this. It's 13 whole-food ingredients provide 18g of protein from pea, pumpkin seed, and hemp seed sources, as well as an excellent source of omega 3 and vital minerals like calcium, iron, and magnesium.

Because of its organic and non-GMO certifications, it’s great for those looking to ensure their supplements are grown naturally and don’t contain any pesticides.

What We Liked

Forget about stevia, because this powder doesn’t contain even a little bit. You know what that means – no unpleasant aftertaste. Instead, they sweeten their protein powder with coconut sugar, a far more nutritious alternative to standard refined sugars.

What We Didn't Like

Despite its lack of aftertaste, this product gets very mixed reviews for its overall flavor and taste. It tends to separate easily too, so unless you received one of those novelty self-stirring mugs for your last birthday, it could be an issue you encounter with this product.

Available on Amazon

5. Garden of Life Organic Chocolate Protein Powder

Available on Amazon


As one of the biggest names in the natural product industry, Garden of Life is proud of their organic and non-GMO certifications, product traceability and superior quality natural ingredients.

Their chocolate protein powder provides 15g of organic protein from pea seed, chia seed, flaxseed, cranberry seed and pumpkin seed, and is completely grain-free.

It also has the added bonus of containing 19 naturally occurring vitamins and minerals like calcium, iron, zinc and B vitamins, as well as probiotics to aid with digestion.

It comes in small 276g pouches with approximately 10 scoops, or sachet packs which are great on the go.

What We Liked

As well as being grain-free, it’s also gluten-free, kosher and soy-free, making it suitable for those who may have these additional dietary requirements. It’s also perfect for those who struggle to reach their daily intake of minerals like iron, which it contains 4.1mg of per scoop!

What We Didn't Like

Like Sunwarrior’s chocolate powder, it’s a little gritty in texture, and it can be hard to mix without the help of a good blender. It also has the addition of Stevia, which can leave an unpleasant aftertaste. Another notable negative is the price – the small pouch costs almost as much as some large tubs from other brands, therefore pricing itself out of some people’s price range.

6. Naturade Vegan Smart All-In-One Nutritional Chocolate Shake

Available on Amazon


Naturade has been creating natural products for eight decades and were the pioneers of soy protein powders back in the 50s.

In line with their established reputation, the Vegan Smart All-In-One Nutritional Chocolate Shake has incredible nutritional values per serving.

In addition to the 20g of non-GMO protein, it provides from pea, hemp, chia, potato and Chlorella sources; it also offers an array of vitamins and minerals from fruits and vegetables like apricot, mango, broccoli, pineapple, cabbage, and spinach.

But that’s not all – it also contains prebiotic aloe vera and an enzyme blend to help with digestion, and is a great source of fiber and omegas.

Each tub is 690g and contains approximately 15 servings.

What We Liked

For those who struggle to get enough fiber, Naturade is your answer. Each serving of their all-in-one nutritional chocolate shake provides 6g of dietary fiber, which is double the amount offered by some of their close competitors. This powder provides, even more, iron per serving than Garden of Life’s powder does with a huge 9mg per serving, making it a clear winner for those who are keeping an eye on their iron intake.

What We Didn't Like

This product gets quite mixed reviews for taste, and has a definite stevia aftertaste. Some may also find that the high fiber blend added to this powder is not suitable for their diet, and could lead to some digestive disruption like stomach ache and bloat.

7. Biochem 100% Vegan Chocolate Protein Powder

Available on Amazon


Biochem has been on the protein scene for over 15 years, offering no-nonsense protein powders with no additives and no artificial ingredients.

Their 100% vegan chocolate protein powder is no different, containing only hemp, pea and cranberry proteins, medium-chain triglycerides from coconut oil, cocoa, natural flavors and nothing else. Each scoop provides 20g of protein, as well as omega 3-6-9 from hemp and antioxidants from cranberries.

Each large 737.8g tub contains 24 servings.

What We Liked

The simplicity of this powder gives it a delicious natural cocoa taste, without being bitter. It’s also more affordable than many of the other brands available, meaning you get more protein for your money with every tub!

What We Didn't Like

There aren’t many downsides to this powder. However, some may find that the earthy undertones of the hemp and cocoa are not to their liking.

Available on Amazon

8. ProMix Complete Vegan Chocolate Protein Powder

Available on Amazon


Promix believes in science-based nutrition that sets the industry standard for clean nutritional supplements. They source organic, non-GMO and all-natural ingredients to craft their protein powder, and take a no-nonsense approach to additives.

When you discover that this protein powder contains only four ingredients, it’s clear to see that they’re serious about their ethos. The 25g of protein that this product provides per serving comes from pea protein, rice protein, raw cocoa and pure monk fruit – and nothing else.

It also offers 5.3g of branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s) per serving, as well as being an excellent source of iron, calcium, magnesium, selenium, and zinc. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty impressed that they got all that from just four ingredients.

Each massive 2.7kg tub contains approximately 73 servings.

What We Liked

Thanks to the super fine consistency of this protein powder, it blends well and doesn’t have an unwanted gritty or chalky texture. The flavor of this product stands out too, and it still tastes good when mixed with water alone – a real testament to its quality.

What We Didn't Like

ProMix appears to be in the process of changing their recipes up a bit, meaning that there’s a definite threat of stevia on the horizon. Cue the infamous aftertaste, with a subtle hint of betrayal.

Available on Amazon

Gain More Than Just Muscle

With such a variety of blends, ingredients and processing techniques, it’s easy to see that one brand doesn’t suit all – but with the help of this article, you can match your personal tastes, desires, and requirements to the right product.

Although, if there’s one chocolate vegan protein powder that stood out the most to me, it would have to be Ora’s Organic Powder (Amazon). While, admittedly, it is one of the more expensive vegan protein powders available, its incredible superfood ingredients, high protein ratio, and immensely positive reviews make it worth those extra dollars.

Most importantly, choosing a vegan-friendly protein powder undoubtedly comes with more benefits than just the lean muscle you could gain, the weight you could lose or the extra nutrients you could get.

You’re also helping to prevent animals from going through unnecessary cruelty and suffering, avoiding potentially health-harming animal products, as well as picking an undeniably more Earth-friendly item.

So, no matter which product you choose, you’re making an awesome choice.
