Soya is out of the question, been looking at hemp and rice protein powder, including those on sunwarrior... I want to know which is the most filling and the most beneficial, as I would be hoping to make shakes and ice cream with it so it needs to have a reasonable taste and come in flavours.

Well I really like the Sun Warrior Blend of Pea Protein, Hemp, and Cranberry protein (I know!). It also has medium-chain triglycerides from coconut oil. Great for metabolic function. The vanilla tastes great and it is only 84 calories a serving. You can find it at any Vitamin Shoppe. Plant Fusion is also great. It has a little sugar but it is all from fructose, a low glycemic fruit sugar (I'm sure you already know this). It is a mixture of pea protein, sprouted quinoa protein, sprouted amaranth protein, and artichoke protein. I hope that helps. I use the blends simply because they have a more optimal amino acid profile.

Yeah already looked at the pea and hemp protein mix and was interested.
Though chocolate would be my ideal flavour to curb chocolate cravings.

I use Prarie Naturals Rice Protein in Cafe Caramel flavour. It's the only one I've found that I can stomach. The chocolate types I've found have a weird aftertaste that I just can't stomach.

I like pea protein but not for the flavor--I have to blend it with fruit, rarely with just coffee. I want to try a blend they make on It seems cheaper. I haven't used that site myself but some on here recommend it. You can custom make your protein powder and flavor.

Out of the non-dairy protein powders I've tried, I like SunWarrior Warrior Blend (vanilla) the best. I would love to be able to use Vega, but the cost is too much for me. I've been able to get SunWarrior on special at the Vitamin Shoppe, and since I'm the only one who uses it, it can last me awhile.

Before SunWarrior, I liked (and still like) LifeTime Life's Basics Plan Protein (vanilla) (pea, hemp, rice protein w/ chia seed). When I was using it before, I don't THINK it had the chia seed in it, but I can't be 100% sure I'm remembering correctly. To me LifeTime had the best taste in terms of taste and texture.

Egg is the best non-dairy from a protein quality standpoint.

Nutiva Hemp Protein powder. It is about $15 for 30oz, which is a lot more reasonable than other non-dairy powders. I buy mine (the one with fiber) on Amazon through their subscribe and save program.

I am using Nutiva Hemp powder in vanilla. I really like it in smoothies :) I have tried Vega, but prefer Nutiva so far.
