We have always been a family who has loved protein powders – sort of! You know, we love the convenience of them, the ability to add protein into our day, and hopefully the flavor. But I swear we have spent a small fortune on protein powders that we just did not like. So here are our top selections and you will always find these in our house (or at least the empty containers while we wait for more to arrive)…
#1 Protein Milkshake Bar
#1 goes to MilkShake Bar Protein Powder because it is the one that everyone in the family agrees is delicious. I can’t wait to try all the flavors but so far this is the family favorite and it is very versatile. I highly recommend going to their Protein Milkshake Bar site and signing up for their offers (bottom of the home page). This will allow you to receive some of their special offers in your inbox as well as some recipes. However, unless you are purchasing through a special offer – I strongly suggest purchasing on Amazon instead. They are much less expensive (although still pricey) on Amazon.
Our favorite flavor is the Cupcake Batter. We all differ on our favorite recipe but mine is a scoop of the protein powder, a frozen banana, a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, and unsweetened almond milk. This is seriously awesome and a great treat. My kids prefer it without the banana – they really can’t handle the flavor of frozen banana in any of their protein shakes – so theirs are just thinner or we add frozen berries (whatever we have on hand).
Flavors are awesome such as Cupcake Batter, Cream Puff, Rocky Road, Vanilla Caramel, Strawberry Shortcake, Chocolate, Cinnamon Bun, Vanilla and Banana Cream.
#2 FitMiss Delight
Our second choice – although due to the flavor differences it is often our first choice – whatever goes best with what we are making. This one is a little less expensive – in fact I can get two pounds of this for a little less than one pound of the Milkshake Bar brand. This is designed with women in mind but occasionally my son will drink some of this. It comes in Vanilla Chai, Chocolate Delight, Banana Cream, Cookies and Cream and Strawberry Cream though it seems as though they are only selling Vanilla Chai and Chocolate Delight now. Whenever I see the other flavors pop up I immediately purchase them – they don’t last long. FitMiss actually has a full line of products but I only indulge in the Protein Powders. You can see the full line of products on the FitMiss site but you will find the products less expensively on Amazon, especially if you have Prime.
With this brand (we have all flavors on hand except Banana Cream) – we tend to mix the flavors. For example we use 1/2 scoop of Vanilla Chai and 1/2 scoop of Chocolate Delight or Strawberries and Cream. YUM!
#3 Qivana Metaboliq
Now this is my personal favorite – my #1 – and the one I turn to most. I will not share this with my kids – nope – all mine! Qivana Metaboliq is an entire metabolism boosting, weight loss system. They have Vanilla and Chocolate shakes, Chocolate Peanut Butter Crisp bars, Blue Ice Recharge for boosting metabolism and then there are systems and combo pack combinations based on your specific needs or desires. One of my favorite things with this system is that the protein shakes are good even mixed with water – I don’t need milk or nut milk. I also use the Shoq when I need that extra boost of energy in my day to get everything done.
So that’s the list – Our Family’s favorite protein shakes!
