Another great protein drink from Mix1!
I ordered the Vanilla shake as soon as I saw that it was available on Amazon. I really enjoy it!
It has a very natural vanilla flavour and does not taste artificial like most vanilla-flavoured protein drinks. It tastes like a delicious vanilla milkshake but without the heaviness of a real milkshake. The consistency of this shake is a little bit thinner than the regular Mix 1 protein drinks that I am used to, but it is definitely not watery. I really like it for breakfast, because in the morning I don’t usually feel like downing a whole one of the regular Mix 1 protein drinks with the slightly thicker consistency…I prefer those in the afternoon.
1 Of The Best.
Love Mix1 for post-recovery after a long run or bike ride!
nutrition value, taste worth the calories
Pros: *Easily digestible with a good mouth feel (not sour or slimy)
*The nutritional value (vitamins and minerals) makes it worth the calorie expenditure
*Unlike some rival products, tastes like vanilla, not overly sweet or fake.
*Haven’t tried it but would probably make a good smoothie w/fresh or frozen fruit
Cons: *Can be pricey and hard to find
*Not a vegan product because it contains milk solids–can’t recommend to vegan friends
*Unlike the recyclable plastic bottles the fruit Mix1 flavors come in, the tetrapaks used for the chocolate and vanilla flavors are hard to drink without a straw.
But overall, I recommend Vanilla Mix1, especially since recently my favorite Mix1 flavor, blueberry vanilla has disappeared from the shelves.
