This vanilla vegan protein powder is very thick, high in calories, and has a grainy texture if you use the recommended portion with the scoop in the bag, but it imparts a good sweet vanilla flavor, and no texture issues if you use just a tablespoon or two, with collagen protein (and I’m sure would work with other plain protein powders too).
