Protein MilkShake Bar {Review}

When Protein MilkShake Bar reached out to me to try their new premium blend whey protein, I jumped at the chance. Protein powders can be expensive and they always seem to come in massive containers so I am always hesitant to try something new. No one wants to spend money on a product they don’t like.

Protein MilkShake Bar

I did a little research on the Protein MilkShake Bar sight and found that this Canadian company was founded by a woman (yay!!) and they believe in a healthy lifestyle upgrade incorporating natural foods, high quality supplements, weight training and HIIT. This is what I strive for on a daily basis as well.

I also learned that their products are gluten-free and come in the most amazing sounding flavors! Cake batter, Cream Puff, Rocky Road and Chocolate Carmel all stood out to me. I decided to go with the cake batter flavor because all the other protein powders I’ve tried have been chocolate so I wanted to switch it up. And because it’s cake batter and who doesn’t love cake batter?

Protein MilkShake Bar

My first thought…SO SWEET! I am usually more of a savor breakfast person so the (natural) sweetness jolt surprised me but upon second sip, I loved it. Protein shakes make the perfect breakfast for me because they are easy to make and bring with me in the car and on the train.

Overall Impression

I really enjoyed this protein powder. It was not chalking and didn’t have a weird texture like some other powders. I can’t say that it’s the best ever but it is delicious and I would absolute try the other flavors – chocolate carmel is calling my name!

Jumping on the Shakeology Bandwagon

A huge shout out to my cousin-in-law (is that a real term?) for getting me on the bandwagon! I kept referring to her as my sister-in-law to SL when I was telling him how she sent me a Shakeology sample that I was dying to try. After calling her my SIL more than a couple times I realized I would never actually have a SIL. SL is an only child and my sister is totally into dudes so the best I can hope for is a BIL.

But seriously, Lori, and all of my CILs are are amazing and are all like SILs and BILs to me!

I digress…on to Shakeology.

Shakeology package

I opted to try the chocolate flavor because it gives me an excuse to have chocolate for breakfast (I choose right). My sample, one serving packet came with a 30-day recipe guide as well as a great info book on Shakeology. All of these recipes look amazing but I opted for my own version.

My Morning Shake

I blended it all up and its was AMAZING!! (I should have added a handful of spinach…oops)

Shakeology

I’ve tried a few other protein powders in smoothies and shakes but this one topped them all. It wasn’t chalky or flavorless at all. I actually enjoyed drinking every last drop of my shake. Good thing SL had this beer stein to fit the whole shake in! Totally normal to drink protein shakes out of a beer stein, right?!

The only down side to this, and many other protein powers, is the price. A 30-serving bag is $130 which breaks down to just over $4 a serving. This is a little high in terms of my personal breakfasts but it might be worth it 🙂

Is anyone else on the Shakeology bandwagon?
