When you think of whey protein, you think of a great tool to build muscle and burn off excess body fat when combined with exercise. You probably don’t think of tongue-pleasing refreshment. But after trying DESIGNER WHEY Protein Blitz you will. Protein Blitz delivers 30 grams of premium-quality whey protein isolate along with an unforgettable taste in Orange Mango, Punch, and Grape flavors. What’s more, each 16-oz. serving contains no fat and just 1 gram of sugar and carbs.
Tongue-pleasing refreshment? Maybe, at first. I had the 'grip it good grape' which is an interesting flavor-name choice for tongue-pleasing refreshment. I'll leave it at that.
Designer Whey Protein Blitz is a clear liquid protein supplement that comes in a 20 ounce plastic bottle.
With 120 calories and a whopping 30 grams of protein with only ONE CARB it's quite perfect, actually.
For the post-WLS crowd, that's really super. Nearly two grams of protein per ounce, if you are still in clear liquid phases and only sipping.
I sipped on the grape flavor, sniffing it first, the sniff-test: melted grape popsicle or Dimetapp with a slight aroma of, well, it's protein. You know it is, I know it is, but I can't help but call it cheese. I immediately wondered if it would freeze well into WLS Protein Pops. (MY IDEA! LOL!)
HOWEVER. It ain't bad. It tastes like grape Kool-Aid or popsicles. At first, it's nice and clean and tasty, then there is a slight protein mouth feel. It's not sticky or chunky or chewy, it's just a bit o the dry. But, I haven't had any clear protein product that DOES NOT have this unique quality. I was able to drink the whole bottle, contentedly with no bitching, whining or complaining. I would buy it again, in fact, it would be a perfect choice for my cut-it-back-and-eat-less-before-you-need-another-gastric-bypass diet plan. (Hush.)
