Earth Chimp Vegan Protein Powder Review


Plant-Based Protein Powders like Earth Chimp have been growing like crazy in popularity over the last few years.

I started drinking protein powders as a lanky 15 year old trying to put on muscle to play football. Back then, all protein powders tasted so bad you almost had to hold your nose while you chugged them down.

Protein Powders (and especially plant-based protein powders which didn’t even exist yet) have come a long way since then and Earth Chimp plant-based protein powders are proof of that.

I recently tested out all three flavors of Earth Chimp’s vegan protein powder, chocolate, vanilla and unflavored.

In this review, I’ll share with you Earth Chimp’s nutritional info along with what I liked (and what I didn’t) when it comes to the taste, mixability and price.

My Review

Now that we’ve gone over all the nutritional details of Earth Chimp’s protein powder, let’s get into what I actually thought about it.

What I Liked

Before I even opened the bag, the first and most obvious thing I noticed was just that – the powder comes in a bag. It almost reminds me of an upgraded brown paper bag that you would take you lunch in to middle school.

Obviously, it’s more durable and the inside of the bag is lined, but what it’s definitely not is a big hard plastic tub.

I’m not going to pretend to be an expert on what kind of materials are more eco-friendly – but this bag definitely feels pretty eco-friendly.

For what it’s worth, according to the back of my bag, they also “donate 10% of their packaging costs towards removing discarded plastics from our oceans.” Pretty cool.

Finally, Earth Chimp uses No GMOs. That’s pretty standard for vegan protein powders, but I did want to mention it.

Taste

Earth Chimp Protein Shake
My favorite Earth Chimp Shake: Chocolate Peanut Butter Strawberry using Earth Chimp Chocolate and Oat Milk. Amazing!

Let’s start with taste, because let’s be honest, if a protein powder tastes awful, then nothing else matters, right?

There are so many quality, great tasting vegan protein powders on the market now that if it doesn’t taste great, then there are plenty of other options to choose from.

Good news, Earth Chimp’s protein tastes amazing. It’s honestly one of the best vegan protein powders I’ve tried.

Many vegan protein powders with a pea protein base have a distinguishable taste from the pea protein that isn’t the most pleasant. I can’t detect any of that with Earth Chimp.

The Unflavored you’ll want to mix with a little something, peanut butter, strawberries, etc to get the best results, but the Chocolate and Vanilla are great on their own with nothing more than water and a little ice.

Or, use oat milk with any of them and you’re good to go.

One last note on the taste. Earth Chimp doesn’t use any added erythritol, which has become a very popular low-calorie sweetener. I mention this, because if you’re like me erythritol can really mess with my stomach.

Score on taste? 10 out of 10.

Mixability

Sure, if you throw any powder in a blender it’s going to mix up with no issues. What I’m talking about is if you throw powder in with water or non-dairy milk in a Blender Bottle – does it mix up easy or is it a pain?

I give Earth Chimp an 8/10 here. If it gets stuck at the top of your bottle, it may take a little scraping to get it all mixed, but other than that I have very little issues.

Price

At the time of this writing, Earth Chimp was on sale for 37.99 (regular price 45.99) for a 2lb bag. You can check out their current price on Amazon here.

I did a full review on 9 of the best vegan protein powders, and when compared to the other proteins I tested Earth Chimp’s price came in second out of the 9 at $1.46 per serving.

The only powder that came in cheaper was Naked Pea Protein, which is basically almost raw pea protein and doesn’t taste anywhere close to as good as Earth Chimp.

Considering how it compares to other plant-based proteins on the market, I have to give Earth Chimp a 9 out of 10 on price.

Final Thoughts

Earth Chimp is a relatively new player on the plant-based protein scene, but they are definitely worth checking out.

The taste is great, it mixes well and the price is really good. What’s not to like.

In addition, they seem to be taking steps towards helping the environment by re-thinking the packaging of our protein powders and giving back to help get plastic out of our oceans.

If you want to give them a try, they’re currently sold exclusively on Amazon.

Enjoy!
