The Chocolate Whey to Go: Product Reviews

March 23, 2011

You all know my smoothie obsession, however, I’m happy to say I’m moving into toddler stage and getting to more solid foods 🙂 I just love my smoothies though, great replacement for those McDonald milkshakes that weren’t so good in the past too. (Have you noticed they changed them anyway? Poo on that.) Sorry, I digress.

Anyway, my beloved company VEGA sent me a packet of their Shake and Go Choc-a-Lot to try. As you know, I’m a huge fan of VEGA products, you just can’t beat their nutrition profile. Some of their products I haven’t found as tasty as I hoped for, but this one left was AWESOME! I mixed it up with some frozen bananas, almond milk, ice, and it created a very chocolaty shake with almost a hint of vanilla sweetness. This is certainly going down on my “when i win a million dollars list…” It is worth every penny!

 

Some of the benefits:

  • Two servings of veggies
    2500 mg Omega-3-6-9
    1 g complete protein
    Only 100 calories
    1 billion probiotics cultures
  • 40% iron-which is definitely what I need!
  • 12g protein
  • low in sugar and sodium!
  • 5g fiber
  • completely vegan, no gluten, soy, or whey!

 

The other new chocolate protein powder I tried was Spiru-tein’s Whey chocolate flavor. I normally haven’t done Spiru-tein in the past because I recall trying it once and not liking the flavor, and also I now have to stay away from soy. The positive aspect of Spiru-tein

is it has a much smaller price tag with the addition of some extra healthy ingredient benefits that you don’t usually find in whey powders like Jay Robb and such.  I mixed it with a similar combo, almond milk, yogurt, bananas, bit of ice, dash of sugar free chocolate pudding, and the result was the best consistency-it was like eating a huge bowl of of lightly set chocolate pudding, yet it was full of nutrients, protein, and ingredients I could pronounce vs. a Jello snack pack. It was actually a treat!

Benefits of Spiru-Tein Whey spirutein whey

  • 14g protein
  • extra vitamins and minerals most other whey powders don’t have
  • contains bee pollen, spirulina, chlorophyll, and other good stuff
  • kinder to the pocket book and easier to find

 

 

 

Those are my chocolate adventures of the week. It’s the end of the month, budget is tight, and I’m just praying I have enough spinach to make my green monsters to get me through 🙂 I’ve been packing and crafting this week, if I finally create something decent maybe I’ll get it up here!

Do you use protein powders? If so, what are your favorites? Do you use them as meal replacements, snacks, etc?
