Ghost Banana Pancake Batter Vegan Protein Review

Ghost Vegan Banana Pancake Batter Protein

Taste

Banana Pancake Batter - Upon the very first sip of a shake or mixed as protein pudding there is a very smooth texture, which is a huge bonus for a vegan protein. There is a noticeable maple vibe in the aftertaste with a dominant ripe banana flavor. What I really appreciate is the density of the banana included in this pancake batter spin-off. It is not artificial or over the top sweet. The flavoring provides a dense and bold banana flavor that goes perfectly with the maple compliment. When you deal with a vegan option it is almost inevitable there will be a slight chalky aspect to the aftertaste, but Ghost did a great job on masking it.

Mixability

Shake

** 8-10oz Per Scoop **

The texture is smooth when mixed as a shake, but again I would not compare it to any dairy-based products. It still does have a sort of grainy-ness that tells you for sure ‘yes, this is definitely vegan, but that is to be expected. I suggest a bit more water or liquid when mixing with a vegan protein due to the thickness it provides.

Sludge

One of my favorite ways to mix protein is with greek yogurt or just enough water to make “Protein Pudding” or “Sludge”. Vegan options tend to be on the thicker side and that holds true with Ghost Vegan. No issues when mixing with either option as long as you find a proper powder to water/yogurt ratio.

Personally, I’d still give a slight edge to the standard Pancake Batter – the banana takes away from what I’m really here for :stuck_out_tongue:.

That said, Ghost executed this to perfection – so anyone looking for a mix of the two flavors won’t be disappointed. (And I’d kind of like to see them try pure Banana, given how well some other companies are doing with fruit-flavored vegan proteins.)
