I was recently sent some Mixed Berry Smoothie’s to try from Premier Protein. I was excited to receive this product as I’m always looking for fast, quick and affordable protein options. There are many mornings and afternoons where this would be a perfect energy boost, especially with a very active baby running around the house and being limited in time or on-the-go. These smoothies have a great balance of carbs, fats and proteins that provide a long-lasting source of energy.
Let me just say, I was shocked by how great these smoothies tasted. I rarely, if ever, find protein drinks that I like and I was pleasantly surprised at the flavor and that they didn’t taste chalky at all. They tasted awesome and definitely a product that I’ll be purchasing!
Another thing that I really liked about this product is that it has 60% less sugar than the leading refrigerated protein smoothies. I find that most contained WAY too much sugar for my liking. Each serving has 5 grams of fiber, 15 grams of protein and 140 calories, which makes it a healthy, delicious choice for a morning boost. midday snack or post-workout fuel.
Since I’m still breastfeeding and continuously training for various running races (10k trail run this weekend!), I’m constantly trying to add additional protein to my diet to help keep my supply up and keep my body fueled. Nursing women need 20 grams more protein a day than they did before pregnancy to support milk production so having just one smoothie daily helps me to nearly reach that goal. Plus, it’s also loaded with many other essential vitamins and minerals.
