Hi there, friends – happy Tuesday! Hope everyone’s week is starting off well! It has been a hot minute since I last shared a new product I am obsessing over, so today I am excited to introduce you to my current must-have treat – Bananas & Cream Premier Protein Shakes!

Premier Protein

I was first introduced to the Premier Protein brand when I traveled to Boston in October for the annual Food and Nutrition Conference & Expo or FNCE 2016. You can find my recaps of all the foodie fun in Baaaahston here and here. While I was perusing the massive food and nutrition expo, I found myself being called to the Premier Protein booth. What I immediately liked about the company was that they were offering morning boot-camp workouts before each day of the conference. Out of all the health food companies attending the conference, they were the only group that was really living out their mission of promoting a healthy and active life with this offering. So when they asked me if I wanted to try their back-by-popular-demand Bananas & Cream protein shakes, I was totally one board.

As a wannabe bodybuilder, I consider myself pretty selective about the foods I eat, especially my protein sources. I am currently in the cutting phase of my fitness routine and watching my diet very carefully. I was genuinely surprised to find that the macronutrient composition of these shakes was completely on point. Each shake contains 30g of protein from casein and whey and is only 160 calories, 5g of carbohydrate, and 3g of fat – those stats are straight-up dope! They’re also super convenient to drink post-workout as they are pre-blended and portioned out into cartons. I can easily pop one into my gym bag, head out the door to get my grind on, then refuel with my shake when I am done. 

Bananas & Cream Protein

The best part? The taste is bomb dot com. These shakes are seriously creamy and delicious – not too sweet and with just the right amount of banana. I was so excited about the shakes that I was discussing them with a gym buddy and he reported that he loves them too. He actually pours a little into his coffee each morning instead of creamer. All the yes. 

Since these bananas & cream shakes are available at the suburban equivalent of Mecca (AKA Costco) I see them making their way into my shopping cart and belly again in the near future…#SorryNotSorry
