If y'all remember back to Nov. I was blessed to attend the Refresh Summit: South. It not only refreshed my soul and spirit but it refreshed my body as well; I went on to lose 30+ lbs in Nov/Dec.
At the Summit I was introduced to many brands and products that I wasn't familiar with. We appreciated their sponsorship of the Summit, as their partnership made the Summit's success possible! And, who doesn't love the freebies!
I was recently contacted by one of the Sponsors to review their products.
MyProtein's go-to guy offered to send me whatever products I was interested in...unfortunately several of the items high on my list were out of stock ~bummer~.
Protein Powder Dietary Supplement
in Chocolate, of course!
But if you are not in a hurry and can make your shake, let it thicken in the fridge, and then consume it, the taste is so much better!
Honestly, I usually make, shake and drink so having to wait for the flavors to meld and the liquid to thicken was a bit of a downer but to be quite fair the shake was much better when left to sit. I imagine that adding a banana and the shake mix to the blender would greatly improve the taste.
Next up, Instant Oats:
The product in the link is not the item I tried and I cannot find the exact Instant Oats on their website.
While this product did have the oatmeal texture you'd expect in a shake made of oatmeal it did *not* bother me a bit and actually tasted better than the Hurricane Extreme...this, too, was chocolate, of course! (The link is for unflavored).
As a shake this was fine as is...but with a banana and run through the blender this would be spot on!
The benefits of protein after a workout are undeniable to replenish thy body. As a vegetarian, that happens to be carb cycling, I appreciate having an instant protein source made of the quality ingredients found in MyProtein.
What I learned:
Patience is key with MyProtein products
Let 'em meld for a bit for maximum benefit (i.e. taste).
Oatmeal in a smoothie is not a deal breaker
The texture is just different...give it a try!
Trying new protein powders is scary for me....I am so picky about flavor!
