    Tastes like a chocolate shake…IF you mix it right, July 12, 2012

    This review is from: Nature’s Bounty Protein Shake Mix, Decadent Chocolate, 16 Ounce (Health and Beauty)

    I use this as a meal replacement when I’m trying to cut calories quickly. It is extremely filling and DE-FREAKING-LICIOUS the way I make it (1 cup plain almond milk, 1 banana, 1 cup ice, 2 scoops chocolate), I have a vitamix and it blends it beautifully. My husband drinks them and loves them though he does it the lazy stir with a spoon in a glass with almond milk, but he likes it. I don’t mind the extra calories the almond milk and banana add since I’m using it as a meal replacement (still only ~280). Seriously, try it. It’s so good. And I like it because normally when I cut calories I sacrifice on vitamins, but this is complete with vitamins and pre/pro-biotics, so it HELPS to cover (I still believe you can truly only derive the benefits of a vitamin-packed diet by ingesting them from the food themselves, i.e. a whole foods diet) some of what I may lose by not eating regular, large meals. But hey, it’s summer, and I’m starting to look good in a bikini, and I’m not hungry during the day :)

    Tastes pretty good, lots of protein and vitamins, low sugar, and it’s filling!, January 8, 2013
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)

    3/3/13 Update: I tried this today with just water, based on a comment made by another reviewer. One word: YUCK!!! I will happily stick to the Lactaid milk.

    2/22/13 UPDATE: I took a break from drinking these shakes because I was bloating afterward. I just started making them again, using Lactaid milk instead of regular 2% milk. Not only did the bloating stop, but wow, did the sweet Lactaid milk improve the taste!! It went from being sufficiently palatable for me to drink it to being really tasty. If you’re not crazy about the taste of this shake, try it with the Lactaid milk! It has much less of a protein shake taste.

    ORIGINAL REVIEW:

    I am hypoglycemic and am not supposed to eat cereal, but of course I cheat, especially in the winter when it’s too cold for my typical protein shake (I use a GNC whey protein powder, glutamine powder, plain yogurt, fruit and ice). Recently I’ve been drinking the Special K protein shakes, which taste great (love the chocolate), but have 18 grams of sugar and only 10 grams of protein. Even if I eat a piece of fruit with it, I’m hungry again within 2 hours. The GNC protein powder doesn’t taste very good, especially if I use the full serving size, so I was happy to try Nature’s Bounty protein shake mix.

    The Nature’s Bounty mix has 15 grams of protein and only 6 grams of sugar! I ordered it in vanilla so I could mix it with fruit, but I wanted to try it plain first. For my first shake, I whisked it into a cup of 2% milk to see how well it would dissolve. Most of it dissolved with some vigorous whisking, but it was still a bit gritty (I am hoping to avoid having to use my blender every day). It tasted a lot better than GNC’s shake but still definitely has the protein shake taste. It has a good enough flavor, whereas the Special K drinks are downright yummy. I would actually drink this plain, something I never do with GNC’s shake. It has a slight vanilla cake batter taste.

    The second time, I blended it, using the two scoops of powder and again, a cup of milk. It mixed much better and had a smoother consistency. Just now, I made it again, adding a handful of ice cubes. While the shake didn’t thicken and was still as thin as flavored milk, it did increase the volume slightly. The taste was watered down a bit, of course, but still palatable. However, if I’m going to use ice going forward, I’ll add fruit to give it some flavor. I’ll also try blending it with plain yogurt when I want a thicker shake.

    With the milk, the shake has about 23 grams of protein! When I had a shake yesterday, I didn’t get hungry again for 6 HOURS! And I am always hungry (seriously). I did have two clementines in that 6-hour period, but that was primarily to keep my blood sugar levels up.

    Another important feature of the Nature’s Bounty protein shake mix: it is LOADED with vitamins! It has 100% of the U.S. RDA for most vitamins found in a standard multi-vitamin pill. The ones it doesn’t: calcium, iron, magnesium, sodium and potassium. I take a multi and take each of those as individual supplements as well (except the iron), so if I were to drink this shake every day, I could probably cut out the multi. It also contains digestive enzymes, probiotics for intestinal health, flaxseed for your omega-3 intake, and stevia instead of sugar. They really mean it when they say “complete”! It’s also gluten-free, ok for vegetarians, and has 5 grams of fiber. I can’t think of a single reason not to use this every day. (I’ve been wanting to lose 20 pounds, so if I do while using this daily, I will report the results!!)

    The 16-ounce container makes about 13 shakes, so it costs about $1 a shake. The less filling Special K shakes cost $1.25-1.50 per shake depending on where you buy them, so Nature’s Bounty is not just better for you, it’s a better value. I will be buying the chocolate as well, and saving the Special K shakes for when I need something on the run and want to avoid fast food.

    So far so good — a first review., September 14, 2012

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    The price of Orgain, my favorite health drink, went through the roof. I looked around for a moderately priced replacement and found Nature’ Bounty Vanilla. I examined the ingredients carefully and it all looked good.(Proprietary Protein Blend: Pea Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate, Rice Protein Concentrate, Fructose, Inulin, Natural Flavors, Maltodextrin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum, Soy Lecithin, Contains milk and soy ingredients.) Additionally, only 6 grams of sugar per serving– some of the health drinks have as much as 22 grams of sugar, too much, in my opinion.

    This drink tastes like what it is — a health food; that is, it won’t be confused with a soda fountain vanilla milkshake. Even so, I found it pleasant when mixed with eight ounces of one per cent milk. I put the two tablespoons of the protein powder in milk and then used a soda fountain style mixer to blend the ingredients. After a couple of minutes I poured the mix into a glass. The powder was completely disolved and the drink did look like a soda fountain shake, but as mentioned, tasted like a light vanilla health food beverage. When I added two tablespoons of Carnation Malted Milk to the mix, the flavor improved dramatically. Even so, it still tastes like what it is — health food.

    I will let the nutrition experts comment on the true value of this product for our health and well being. I’ll come back to this review after I have finished the entire contents of the 16 ounce container and update Amazon readers about any perceived health benefits from this product.

    Update: I continue to use this protein shake and find it filling and satisfying. I now add coffee milk to the mix and the flavor has improved dramatically.

    Update 2: I tried the chocolate flavor and like it better than the vanila. It has a cocoa taste and is not too sweet. I then added a tablespoon of Carnation Malted Milk to the second shake I made and liked the results very much. It seems like this is a nutritious drink, but I am open to comments from people who know more than I do. Thanks.
