Can someone help me with this - I always make smoothies with fruit, spinach, almond milk, etc. and I wanted to add some protein powder that does not contain any sugar or sugar sustitutes.  I checked on Amazon and there are a zillion different kinds. Does anyone know of a good one without the sugar or substitutes?

140-267 at HSN.  They are protein capsules by Andrew Lessman.  I drink his protein shakes also but I add some of those capsules throughout the day.

Re: Question re: Protein Powder

@lovesallanimals You'd be best to purchase an organic powder.  I've tried many from whole foods and they do carry brands without added sugar.  One I have had before is Orgain. (on Amazon)  It has pea protein, brown rice protein and chia seeds.   Pea protein is one of the best plant proteins to consume.   Also I use Andrew Lessman's Ultimate Whey protein isolate shake powder.  No sugar or sweetener.  There's a lot out there.....  Good luckSmiley Happy

@lovesallanimals I let my daughter do all of the research & she recommended the Orgain to me.

Another vote for Orgain too. It comes in many flavors--with sugar--or plain-- without. I can't taste it at all and it blends in, without any lumps or grit. I put it in my hot chocolate in the a.m.--my beverage of choice and in smoothies. I also use that brand collegen too. Get from AMZ.

Re: Question re: Protein Powder

Thanks everybody!  I just went to Amazon and ordered the organic unflavored one as it has no sugar.  I always add a drop of organic honey to my shakes so this sounds perfect. I use  quite a few of Andrew Lessman's products but this sounded more of what I was looking for.

Re: Question re: Protein Powder

@lovesallanimals   Probably a stupid question, but what is the purpose of drinking protien shakes...are they a weight loss shake, a meal replacement?

Adding protein to your diet to build or maintain muscle mass when you don't eat enough protein in your daily intake.
