The Best Tasting Protein Powder With Water

The Best Tasting Protein Powder With Water

Drink Wholesome is the best tasting protein powder with water. 

Mixing protein powder with water is a great way to take your protein shake without changing its nutrition profile. Mixing it with milk, on the other hand, adds calories, fat, protein, etc. Although this is by no means a bad thing, it is not for everyone. If you are someone who mixes protein powder with water, and is looking for the best tasting protein powder with water, you have come to the right place.

Most protein powders are palatable when mixed with milk, including dairy free milk. Milk adds a creamy mouthfeel, rich flavor, and helps to balance the overbearing sweetness of artificial sweeteners – which are ubiquitous these days. On the contrary, most protein powders are not very appetizing when mixed with water. In fact, a good number of them are outright revolting. Having tried over one hundred protein powders, I can safely say that very few of them ACTUALLY taste good with water. To clarify, something that “ACTUALLY tastes good” is something that I look forward to eating/drinking. At the end of the day, protein powder is just food, and food should taste good. If you find yourself choking down protein shakes, I encourage you to find a new protein powder. This is because a sustainable diet has to taste good. If it does not, it is unlikely to support your long term health goals. Remember, a diet is not a six week “phase,” it is what you eat/drink every single day, for the rest of your life. 

Drink Wholesome is the best tasting protein powder with water because it is made with real food ingredients. Our vanilla protein powder, for example, is made with egg whites, coconut, chickpeas, vanilla, monk fruit, and sea salt. (We have vegan options too!)

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

For the sake of your taste buds, choose a protein powder made with real foods, not protein isolates. A balanced nutrition profile usually means better tasting, whether you mix it with water, milk, or anything else. Order samples here on our website to taste the difference real foods make. 


You are reading an article written by Drink Wholesome, a small, local company from New Hampshire. Drink Wholesome has taken a fundamentally different approach to protein powder. We use 100% real food ingredients. Research suggests that these ingredients are better for you than the highly processed additives and protein isolates found in most protein powders. They are also far better tasting as they contain the complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and other nutrients that make food taste good. Order samples to see for yourself.
