The Vegan Protein Shake I make Daily
It’s the shake I make every morning. It’s vegan, and you can find the ingredients anywhere.
- Any grocery store.
- Any country.
- At home or on-the-road.
The old NOYOKE shake* was similar. But this one fits my lifestyle and probably yours a bit better.
Protein powder, but not chalky
The draw with the old NOYOKE shake was the drink’s consistency. Compared to powder-based alternatives, liquid pasteurized egg whites as the protein supplement made for smoother smoothies. Less chalky.
Then something changed.
I wouldn’t say I’m 100% vegan. But these days, I seek out good vegan options whenever possible.
So I tried to make my breakfast shake with vegan protein powder. As with most criticism of shakes made with protein powder, they were chalky.
But shakes with protein powder:
- Travel better.
- Are more readily available for international NOYOKE folks.
- Are generally less expensive.
- Have a longer shelf life.
- Are (or can be) vegan!
So, there a few general tricks to making shakes made with protein powder not chalky. Most of them are in the video below.

But what’s important is this:
This protein shake made with protein powder is not chalky at all. It’s wonderful.
I make it every morning and you should, too.
