Best Overall: Jocko Mölk 100% Grass-Fed Whey Pumpkin Flavor
From author, podcaster, and retired Navy Seal Jocko Willink, Jocko Mölk is a 100% grass-fed whey protein isolate that contains probiotics and digestive enzymes. Its zero-sugar pumpkin flavoring is sweetened with natural monk fruit, creating a flavorful, keto-friendly protein powder.
Best Cookies and Cream Flavor: Myprotein The WHEY Cookies & Cream

Best Plant-Based: Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Powder, Chocolate Coconut
Orgain has been crushing the plant-based protein game for a minute now—there’s 21 grams of protein and 6 grams of probiotics in every serving. While their vanilla and chocolate flavors are extremely tasteful, we like the change-up of this chocolate-coconut flavor.

Best Non-Traditional Flavor: Quest Nutrition Cinnamon Crunch Protein Powder
Quest has some of the best protein bar flavors out there. They’ve now taken their cinnamon crunch flavor and put it in a protein powder, which is awesome. There’s 20 grams of protein and less than 1 gram of sugar per serving.
Best Chocolate Flavor: KOS Organic Plant Based Protein Powder, Chocolate
The creators of plant protein powders often have to get creative in making a product that tastes good and delivers proper supplements. This chocolate powder from KOS is rich in taste and packs in a clean 20 grams of protein.

Three More Protein Powders We Love
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey
The OG double chocolate whey protein you’ve seen time and time again on the shelves of your nutrition store. You can always count on Gold Standard to give you the nutrients you need while not sacrificing taste.
Premier Protein 100% Whey Protein Powder Cafe Latte
Another pick for coffee lovers. This one is a little sweeter and creamier compared to the Vital Performance powder above.
Muscle Milk Pro Series Protein Powder
Muscle Milk Knockout Chocolate is a best-selling protein flavor for a reason. It’s soy and gluten-free and offers a whopping 50 grams of protein per serving. Remember as you increase the amount of protein, it can get harder to keep up with the taste, but Muscle Milk makes it work.
