When you think of a protein supplement drink, do you think of 20 vitamins and minerals, 10 servings of fruits and veggies, zero saturated fat, and organic? Chances are, your answer is “no”. Well, over the last year I discovered a protein shake that does, in fact, supply all of the aforementioned benefits. In fact, I drink one every morning and it has replaced my morning coffee because of the energy I get from the fruits and veggies as well as the vitamins. I can tell a big difference in my energy levels between the mornings I do and don’t drink it. It doesn’t have the highest protein content (only 16g), but I love it for after a morning run or swim (I like to use my Collegiate Muscle Milk for lifting sessions). Plus, the RTD packaging makes it easy to throw in a backpack or gym bag, plus it is pretty tasty. Now, don’t expect the super-thick and creamy protein shake you might be used to: it is slightly watery because it doesn’t have all the fat in it. It is, however, pretty tasty for a protein shake, coming in Creamy Chocolate Fudge, Sweet Vanilla Bean, and Iced Cafe Mocha.

I have tried both the chocolate and mocha and I switch between them, but I have not tried the Vanilla Bean because I am just not a fan of vanilla flavored shakes so I can’t review that flavor. But try it for yourself! It can be somewhat expensive buying them individually or at GNC/Vitamin World, so I actually order through Amazon’s Subscribe and Save program. This gets me a 15% discount just for subscribing to get automatic shipments on whatever time scale I want them, and who wouldn’t want to save money while not having to worry about re-ordering supplements?? And in case you’re wondering what happens if you go on vacation or have excess, you can easily cancel your next order because Amazon sends out an email before it actually places the order! So in summary, it’s a great doctor-developed product that’s a protein shake, multivitamin, and energizer all in one ready-to-drink package. Check out the links below!

    Hey Erin, I’m such a huge fan and you’re such an inspiration! With the amount and intensity of training you do, coupled with your awesome clean eating habits obviously equates to your stunning figure – my question is, do you use any other supplements (apart from protein) to maintain and ‘supplement’ your training regimes and diet? If so, what do you use or recommend? Thanks!

    • Anna, I only use protein, a multi vitamin, and a joint care supplement. The other supplements out there are usually only tested by manufacturing standards not for side effects so I don’t mess with those. I try to stay as natural as possible, and nothing is a better supplement than a little extra hard work 🙂
