I opted to go with vanilla to sample and ProSource sent me a 2.2 lb container. Why vanilla? I stick to the plain flavors as I sometimes add my protein powders to pancakes or oatmeal. It arrived very quickly after they notified me it was sent and this is amazing, especially since I live in Hawaii. I eagerly opened the container to prep me a sample to use the following morning after my run. I immediately noticed how light and fluffy the mix looked and was intrigued. But before I go further I must add that this fit my protein powder criteria...and I verified this before agreeing to sample and review the product: it is only 150 calories per serving (I won't use powders with 200+ calories) and it contains no artificial sugars. Please note: a serving size is 1 scoop for 4 ounces of water or milk. I always use water.
How does it taste? The vanilla is delightful and easy to mix with my blender bottle. The more you shake, the creamier the drink. In all reality, I usually shake very briefly and it ends up with a couple small clumps and that is okay with me. They are very small and I prefer that over extra creamy. But hey, I may just be a bit odd.
To go one step further I decided to find out if others besides me were equally impressed. My stepson often drinks protein drinks so I made him test it. He loved it. Dear hubby never drinks protein drinks. I made him try it. He loved it too. In fact, the next day I caught him going in for more!
And before I could really tell you what I thought I had to make some pancakes with it. I added 1/2 a scoop to my mix like I usually do, whipped it up well, and made vanilla cinnamon pancakes. And you know what? I believe this is the first time I made pancakes with a protein powder and actually tasted the hint of vanilla. I loved them and so did darling daughter.
So now you know I love it and that it is only 150 calories but you still aren't sure if this is worth trying. One scoop has 4 grams of fat, 23 grams of protein, <1 gram sugar, 128 mg calcium, and 210 mg potassium to start with.
Is this a product I will keep using? Absolutely for $27.95 but for $55.90 I'm not so sure. After all, I am a running mom on a tight budget.
