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.
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."
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...)
