Drink Wholesome has taken a fundamentally better approach to protein powder. We use 100% real food ingredients, not food additives or isolates stripped of everything but the protein. Our vanilla protein powder is made with just 5 real foods: egg whites, coconut, maple sugar, vanilla, and monk fruit. Ingredients like these are better tasting and better for you. Order samples to see for yourself. 14 servings, 20 g protein per serving.

What are real foods? Real foods are single ingredient, minimally processed foods. Research shows that they are good for you. 

Most protein powders are not made with real foods. Instead, they are made with protein isolates. Protein isolates are ingredients stripped of everything but the protein. Eating protein in an isolated form is like taking a multivitamin instead of eating vegetables. It is missing the healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, and other nutrients that make food taste good. This is why most protein powders taste like chalk. Protein isolates are easy to identify on the ingredients list. They are listed as “whey protein,” “pea protein,” and “soy protein,” as opposed to “milk,” “peas,” and “soybeans.” 

Unlike Drink Wholesome, most protein powders are also loaded food additives. Thickeners like xanthan gum and sunflower lecithin and artificial sweeteners like acesulfame potassium and sucralose are some of the most common offenders. Highly processed ingredients add little to no nutritional value to your protein powder. Moreover, although food additives are not necessarily bad for you in small quantities, they can add up quickly, especially if you eat a lot of processed foods or a protein shake every day. At higher quantities, food additives can cause nasty side effects.  

One of the most common side effects caused by food additives is stomach pain. Because food additives look nothing like real foods, we have trouble digesting them. As a result, the trillions of bacteria in our guts have more time to eat and more time to release gas. This gas can cause bloating and stomach pain. As a rule of thumb, if you cannot pronounce it, it is a food additive.

Boosting your protein intake should not be a chore. At the end of the day, protein powder is just food and food should taste good. If you are tired of choking down your protein shake, reach for Drink Wholesome. Our happy customers include athletes of all ages, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, bariatric patients, and people suffering from conditions like diabetes, IBS, PCOS.

Egg whites, as a source of protein, have a lot going for them. First of all, the bioavailability of eggs is second only to that of whey and casein. Bioavailability is a measurement of how efficiently your body uses a specific type of dietary protein. In essence, the higher its bioavailability, the more efficiently a protein source is used by the body and the more bang you get for your nutritional buck! Eggs are also a complete source of essential branched-chain amino acids, which means that they contain all of the amino acids that the body needs, but cannot produce on its own. This, paired with the fact that they are easily digested, make eggs one of the best ways to boost your protein intake.

Looking for the best vanilla protein powder? Look no further. Drink Wholesome makes the best vanilla protein powder with 100% real foods. We list these ingredients on the front of the package so you know exactly what you are putting into your body.

Drink Wholesome is a small, local company from New Hampshire. We manufacture by hand and would love to help you boost your protein intake with real foods.

  1. 4 out of 5

    good, not much vanilla flavor I don't get too much vanilla flavor (although I can see little specs of vanilla bean). Perfect amount of sweetness though. Makes my stomach happy too.

    Great product! I can’t have most protein powders and this is the cleanest out there. Tastes great too

  3. 5 out of 5

    Love It! So far great! Personally I have always been ok with eggs and I am tolerating the product without issue. I have a really sensitive stomach and have been bouncing between mostly vegan varieties of post workout protein supplements. A couple issues: 1) Please fix the sample, way too confusing, it’s a partial serving meant for tasting but it’s not clear at all. 2) The full size bag of vanilla has all the nutritional information per serving, but no where is the serving amount listed.

    easy to digest, subtle flavor If you are looking for a protein powder that is easy on the stomach, this is the one! It doesn't have a lot of flavor, which isn't a bad thing depending on how you use it. Definitely no aftertaste. Honestly really pleasant!

    happy customer You can't go wrong with Drink Wholesome. The vanilla flavor is subtle and is perfect for my morning smoothie. You can't understand how great the ingredients are. My stomach appreciates the quality.

    Outstanding protein It takes like smooth vanilla milk! No after taste; no chalkiness; just pure milk. It mixes easily without clumping. I use it in smoothies and, my new favorite snack: I put a serving of the power into Greek yogurt, add a little milk or water, and mix it up for a flavorful and super high protein treat.

    Fantastic The best vanilla protein powder I have ever had. Tastes like a vanilla milkshake. Love it and the ingredients! I wish it came in a bigger bag!

    Really Easy To Digest Every other protein powder I've tried has upset my stomach. Drink Wholesome does not!!! I drink a protein shake about an hour before I workout in the mornings, and I've had zero problems. I also like that you can really taste ingredients. Other protein powders just taste like artificial sweeteners.

    perfect for baking It's winter and I have not been feeling my smoothie, so I have been adding this to baking. The results are amazing!!! I can't even tell the protein powder is there. This flavor rocks.

  10. 4 out of 5

    Best protein powder Wish there was a bigger bag. Other than that really good stuff. Certainly the best vanilla protein powder I've had. No aftertaste, not too sweet, ingredients are simple.

  11. 5 out of 5

    love it! Subtle flavor. Great for fruit smoothies. Does not upset my stomach whatsoever, which is a huge plus! Best ingredients I've seen in a protein powder.

    Great way to start my day Delicious, easy to prepare, sometimes add in banana, molasses or peanut butter and I am ready for the day!!

  13. 5 out of 5

    The best protein shake I've ever used! Finally, a protein shake that actually tastes good! It mixes well & all the ingredients are good for you. I'm using vanilla & often add other ingredients for variety: banana, peanut butter, cocoa, fruit jam, etc. You guys are doing a great job - thank you!!!

  14. 5 out of 5

    Perfect for baking! Tastes great in a shake. Great for baking too. I made banana bread with a generous scoop and it was delicious. I was skeptical when I saw the ingredients, but I was pleasantly surprised! Five stars!

  15. 5 out of 5

    Exactly what I was looking for! This is the first protein powder I've tried that does not have an aftertaste. It tastes so natural, and is the perfect addition to my morning smoothie. Love it!

  16. 5 out of 5

    This is amazing! So glad I found you guys. Excited to try the matcha flavor next.

    good, bit expensive Tastes really good. It's a bit expensive though. I'm in college and on a budget. This is probably something I will come back to.

  18. 5 out of 5

    perfect for smoothies! This blends so well. It as a hint of vanilla and sweetness to my morning smoothie. I love knowing exactly what the ingredients are too. No funny business here!

  19. 5 out of 5

    clean, tasty way to boost protein This is doing wonders for me. I was having a hard time getting enough protein as a vegetarian, and this makes it so easy. I throw a scoop into my smoothies in the mornings. The vanilla complements other flavors really well, and I love knowing exactly what the ingredients are.

  20. 4 out of 5

    Bigger bag pls I can't get enough of this. It's wicked good. 4 stars because I would like a bigger bag. I go through 14 servings way too quickly.

  21. 5 out of 5

    BEST flavor My new favorite NH company. The vanilla flavor is the best flavor in my opinion. No added junk it still tastes/mixes great. Well done.

  22. 5 out of 5

    The vanilla flavor is excellent. Not overpowering, nor overly sweet. Mixes well too (no clumps). The ingredients still blow me away. So simple.

  23. 5 out of 5

    Finally vanilla My new favorite flavor! It is delightful and not too sweet (most vanilla protein powders are way too sweet). Definitely going to order more. The egg white/chickpea blend also mixes really well.
