For the burny pouched kids out there.
My appliances are trying to tell me something.

Building Blocks Protein Powder in Cupcake Batter

 Picture 31 

I'm having a grouchy pouch day.  (Have I mentioned how much I hate the use of that term?  I have a grouchy pouchy, wah wah.)  But, I am.  With that in mind, a creamy protein drink sounded quite appetizing this afternoon.

I tried Building Blocks new line of protein powder that they just sent me - Building Blocks Protein Powder [Cupcake Batter].

103 calories, zero sugar,1 carb, 25 grams of protein -- that's a super choice for any part of your WLS post op diet. 

 Protein Isolate Cupcake

The label suggests adding one scoop to 8 ounces of water or milk.  I went crazy and had two scoops in 16 ounces of cold water, in a Blender Bottle.  As usual, I like to try new protein powders in ONLY water, to get the real taste, no adding anything in the first taste test.

I shook the cup for a while, and took a sip.  I got a clump up my straw.  Normally, this would have sent me to the blender to whip the crap out of it, or to the sink to dump it out.  I didn't.  It was so sweet, I kind of enjoyed that little clump.  I know, eww, right?  

The flavor is "Cupcake Batter," so I guess I was "It's supposed to be batter. It's batter.  Batter is like this."

 Then I shook the living daylights out of the bottle and?  It was perfectly smooth.  

The protein smelled like a sweet buttery vanilla.  It tastes just the same, and...

IT IS DELICIOUS IN WATER.  Alone.  NO DOCTORING IT UP.  In fact I drank the entire thing in minutes. That's some good protein powder, and considering it has very few ingredients, I am impressed that it tastes that good.  (Some of the proteins that I have adored have a laundry list of ingredients and non-hydrogenated creamers and this and that...)

More, please.
