What Does LADDER Plant-Based Nutrition Shake Taste Like?Jul 28, 2021
Protein shakes can be an easy way to hit your protein goals for the day. And LADDER Plant-Based Nutrition Shake nailed it — each scoop has 20 grams of pea protein, along with 26 essential vitamins and minerals. But we all know the flavor of protein shakes can be hit or miss, so how does LADDER Plant-Based Protein Shake taste?
Short answer: delicious! It’s not easy to find a shake that tastes good without having to add bananas or other fruit to sweeten it up — but this chocolate flavor is so good that it tastes incredible on its own. I just mix it with some nut milk and ice when I need a quick and healthy snack, and I’m out the door.
I typically have a smoothie every morning to start my day, and another in the afternoon as a pick-me-up. It tastes like a chocolate milkshake, but without the added sugar that most smoothies have. It’s my go-to snack when I get those sweet-tooth cravings — it’s not too heavy, but it keeps me feeling full.
I’m always trying to get more fiber in my diet, so I love that this shake offers 7 grams of fiber per serving. I also love what this shake doesn’t have: There’s no added sugar and no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives. Instead it’s sweetened with two plant-derived, non-nutritive sweeteners — stevia and monk fruit — so it’s just sweet enough without having that “artificial” aftertaste. And because I’m dairy-free, the plant-based protein is the perfect solution for me.
The texture of LADDER Plant-Based Nutrition Shake is smooth — it doesn’t have that gritty consistency that many other shakes and protein powders have. That makes it easy to whip it into a smoothie, or add it to yummy recipes like a Chocolate Blueberry Protein Shake or a Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Ice Cream. It’s such a simple way to get in some healthy protein and fiber while curbing my sweet tooth.
