Orgain Organic Protein Plant-based Powder Review
Touted as the "milkshake" among plant-based protein powders (by a friend and brand-loyal), Orgain Organic Protein is a great tasting product that contains clean and quality sources protein like hemp, pea, and chia.
An unlike some products I have reviewed, Orgain Organic Protein is an affordable option, especially given its quality and quantity. It's also unique in that it uses of both monkfruit extract and stevia as sweeteners.
All in all, my Orgain Organic Protein powder review was a positive one. Get the details below.

Nutritional Facts of Orgain Organic Protein Powder
Branded as the organic plant-based protein powder for many different lifestyles, Orgain Organic Protein does taste delicious. While it's pretty clean protein blend, it does have trademarked "Organic Creamer Base" that might raise the eyebrows of some vegans.
The creamer base is plant-based of course, but it does contain high oleic sunflower oil (which has the highest monounsaturated oleic acid content and is not very shelf stable in powder form). Although the fat content per serving is only 3.5 grams, the "Organic Creamer Base" is probably what makes it Orgain protein powder taste so good.
Unlike some vegan protein powders I've reviewed, Orgain Organic Protein does not make its amino acid profile known on the labeling.

Aside from the latter details, Organic Protein Powder is still a decent product that offers a solid composition of proteins. It offers a premium organic blend of hemp, chia, pea, and brown rice; it tastes great; and doesn't break the bank. That's a compelling selling point if you're not too meticulous.
Flavor Review of Orgain Organic Protein PowderThere are two flavors of Orgain Organic Protein powder: Vanilla Bean and Creamy Chocolate Fudge.
Vanilla Bean (Sweetness Scale 6/10)
Like I hinted at above - the touting holds true. It's hard not to believe that there isn't dairy in this protein powder because it does taste like a vanilla milkshake. I almost gave it a 7 on the sweetness scale, so consider this a high 6.
Texturally, Orgain Organic Protein has minimally traces of chalkiness, but still ranks in the top 50% for smooth and easy-to-blend vegan protein powders. It's surely the closest thing to tasting like real cream, and might make for a good transition for whey protein user.
Creamy Chocolate Fudge (Sweetness Scale NA/10)
I haven't gotten to this flavor yet... but it's probably damn delicious.
