Many protein shakes/powders give promises of no after taste, no chalkiness, or easy to dissolve. Optimum has never disappointed me. I decided to try a new flavor "birthday cake" and it did not disappoint. Delicious flavor of birthday cake without all the badness. Give it a try!
Great taste, high protein supplement and reasonably priced for the size. I especially like Chocolate Malt blended with unsweetened almond milk for added calcium, more vitamins and only 30 more calories. For a larger serving I use two scoops of powder and add plain yogurt. Mix with a hand-blender in a tall beverage container.
I typically stick to the natural chocolate mixed with water but decided to try somethin new. The chocolate mint whey is so smooth. I always mix with water. It tastes like milk chocolate (pretty close to the natural whey chocolate) with a hint of mint. The mint is light and refreshing. Not overly strong. If you're into chocolate mint flavors this is a mus have.
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?) I have a real love/hate relationship with protein powders. Whey protein powders tend to give me intense GI symptoms that are not suitable to describe here. Plus they're generally so chalky in flavor and texture. Optimum's plant-based protein powder is a welcome alternative.It's nice to have a protein powder where one can understand the ingredient list, rather than a bunch of multisyllabic scientific gobb..
I've always been a big fan of protein bars, but wanted to get some powder since it's cheaper and I went through a phase of doing more lifting (but my main activity is running). I also don't eat much meat so I like to get in extra protein when I can.Anyway, decided to go for the optimum nutrition stuff even though it was a little more expensive than some other brands because of the good reviews. I am happy with my choice. The first thing that struck me (and maybe..
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?) I like the flavor, or the mildness of the flavors of this. For me, flavor is everything. If I like it, I will use it up. I put vanilla greek yogurt and fruit in as a base to my after workout smoothie, so the plant base is nice but kind of unnecessary but I have always found Optimum Nutrition products to be reliable. I find that it evens out all of the edges and jitters that can come from overdoing it. ..
I'm not very experienced with protein supplements, I bought this on a recommendation from a friend.It tastes like strawberry, mixes pretty well in milk/water. It works particularly well in yogurt, just dump it on top of your yogurt/smoothie, stir 4-5 times and it's in there. I'd prefer to eat whole food to get my protein but I'm on a tight budget - see below mathYou get 29 grams of protein per serving X 26 or so servings = ~750g of protein for $28 = $.03 per gram..
Delicious, absolutely delicious. I just started working out and take this directly after workout. I'll update if it helps in the future. But anyways I was skeptical about buying this because a lot of people I talked to say protein tastes terrible. They're buying the wrong kinds and not putting research into it. This tastes more like hot chocolate rather than milk chocolate, but I can see how the two tastes are interchangeable.I've tried 2 kinds of protein, and I wa..
This protein is high quality- low on calories, carbs, sugar, etc. However, this is my first time the buying double chocolate flavor in about a year, and I am pretty disappointed. I'm not sure if they changed the ingredients or if I just happen to remember it more fondly, but it could be better. For full transparency, I mix it with unsweetened almond milk, and while it is drinkable, I don't look forward to it like I did in the past. The price is also average. I've s..
I love this protein!I am a mom of one and I currently do Insanity workout daily, every morning. I have previously used rice proteins and hemp proteins but I found I was hungry within two hours which defeats the purpose of eating protein for breakfast. I spoke to my local GNC and they suggested I try a whey protein. I decided to give this product a try after researching and reading reviews for weight loss and as a meal replacement. This product tastes delicious! I m..
