Hi everyone. It’s Andrew here from Muscle Supermarket. Today I will be looking at a supplement from Myprotein which is called Protein Smoothie. It’s essentially a standard protein shake as we all know, but with added real fruit pieces. These fruit pieces are the smoothie element of the supplement.

It looks like it is currently only available in one flavour, and that is strawberry and banana. There may be other flavours introduced in the future, but that is no certainty. As you can see, I have the strawberry and banana Protein Smoothie here.
Let’s take a look at the nutritional information and ingredients. Each serving is 25g. In this 25g scoop of Protein Smoothie, you will get 98 calories, 1.7g of fat, 2.5g of carbohydrates, and the most important part, 18.4g of protein. That’s a decent amount of protein, with low carbs and fat.

The ingredients are simple. Whey protein concentrate, natural flavouring, banana and strawberry powder, colourings and sweetener. Nothing to worry about here. Good, natural ingredients.

There are three different pouch sizes available. 500g which is £12.49, 1kg which is £19.99 and 2.5kg which is £38.99. Considering the protein smoothie is just whey protein concentrate with added fruit pieces, this is on the expensive side. However, I will note that I have seen this product in many offers since it is launched which brings the price down considerably. For example, there is currently a 35% discount code available. If you do want to buy it, wait until it is on sale.

I mixed one scoop with 150ml of milk. You can mix with water too. If you want to make it extra tasty, through some ice in their too. Myprotein suggest that you shake the protein smoothie up and leave it to sit in the fridge for 10-15 minutes. I have done so.
Onto the taste. This is spot on. Very tasty indeed. You definitely get the hint of both the strawberry and banana flavours. The real fruit makes a difference. It’s very refreshing and natural tasting. This is a great product to drink at breakfast time because of the taste.

Overall, Protein Smoothie from Myprotein is a good product. It’s taken the immensely popular supplement which is whey protein concentrate and added a unique twist by throwing in real fruit. It is quite a bit more expensive than a standard whey protein concentrate, so if you are going to buy it at full retail price, I’d probably say that it isn’t worth the money. Having said that, this product is regularly on sale so keep an eye out and get it at a big discount. It tastes great; very refreshing and fruity. I would give Protein Smoothie a 4 out of 5 stars. The lack of the final star is simply due to the price.
