Premier Nutrition Protein Shake (Chocolate)

This is another entry that emerges from my drive to get more protein to heal my sore muscles, especially (in today's case) the quads, a.ka., my running guns...

With 30 g protein for only 160 calories (11 oz/serving), I expected another gag-fest as I poked a straw into this high-protein shake. However, I was pleasantly surprised that I did not really gag... this actually tasted like a really thick version of chocolate milk. There were no grainy bits or anything like that. I'm sure it would be a little better if it was thinned out with a little soy milk, or maybe even water. I'm impressed! Note, though, that there are 5g of carbohydrates in this, which really made all the difference in the world, I think.

As with all milk or soy drinks, make sure, as I did, to refrigerate these things before drinking!! I have to worry about the milk content messing with my lactose intolerance, but if it doesn't do much of that sort of damage, I wouldn't mind drinking it again if it wasn't ~$30 for 18 of these guys. Well, I guess that isn't such a bad deal. It has taken me months to finally drink this one that I had laying around (given to me by my sister), so 18 could last a long time.

  1. finally drank this. Yeah I wish I could find the Vanilla one. M loves these but I just don't like the thickness that much. Maybe thinning it out like you said would make it better.
