The Green Girl struggles to keep her calorie count high but her carbohydrates low.
I know there is some controversy surrounding the usage of protein powders but I find protein shakes really help keep me full when I’m hungry but my carbohydrate count is too high for the day. For instance, if you look at my food log for today, you will see I have already consumed 124 grams of carbohydrates. Granted, I could have saved myself 26 grams had I used water instead of non-fat milk to make my protein shake but I really prefer the taste when it’s made with milk.
I’m going to review each of the flavors. I always mix 16 ounces of non-fat milk with 30.4 grams of the protein powder. I use my favorite BlenderBottle to mix it up.
|Flavor||Like or Dislike?||Review|
|Caramel Toffee Fudge|
|Cookies and Cream|
|Double Rich Chocolate||Like||This was the first flavor I ever tried after a recommendation from a coworker. It’s thicker than chocolate milk so it has the consistency of a cold hot chocolate.|
|Extreme Milk Chocolate|
|French Vanilla Crème||Like||This one tastes like a vanilla smoothie.|
|Mocha Cappuccino||Like||I couldn’t taste the mocha so it just tasted like a less rich Double Rich Chocolate.|
|Orange Cream||Like||Tasted like a really bland Orange Julius.|
|Rocky Road||So-So||Tastes like watered-down chocolate milk with marshmallows.|
|Root Beer Float||So-So||Tasted vaguely like the root beer after all the ice cream has melted.|
|Vanilla Ice Cream|
