You all know I love me some Designer Whey! So I was sooo excited when this wonderful box of goodies arrived on my doorstep!
Yes Designer Whey has a new protein blend...Designer Whey Sustained Energy!
Designer Whey® Sustained Energy™ is specifically formulated with our proprietary Endurance Blend™. Designed to give you balanced, stimulant-free, sustained energy through fast absorbing whey protein and slower absorbing soy and casein proteins, giving you a steady supply of essential amino acids while helping you control hunger with fiber. Packed with 16 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and 19 Essential Vitamins & Minerals and naturally flavored and sweetened – all for only 100-good-for-you calories!
Designer Whey says some of the key causes of low energy are stress, high sugar diet, dehydration, lack of sleep, and meal skipping. I know as a runner and busy mom I don't have time for low energy! I need all the energy I can get! Designer Whey's Sustained Energy is perfect for giving me the energy I need!
This protein powder is made with Soy...something I'm not used to. I don't do Soy products that often. So I was curious about how it would taste.
The first time I tried the Chocolate Velvet flavor was after a long run. I was tired from not only running but because I hadn't slept well the night before. I mixed the powder with fat free milk. The texture was a little grainy but the taste was great!
I tasted the Vanilla Bean flavor one morning in one of my smoothies. I had some blueberries on hand that I needed to use so I added them in my smoothie with the Vanilla Bean protein powder.
Blue-Vanilla Protein Smoothie
1 cup fat free milk or almond milk
1 cup blueberries
1 scoop Designer Whey Sustained Energy Vanilla Bean Protein Powder
1 handful of ice
Mix all the ingredients in the blender. Pour into a glass and ENJOY!!! So yummy!
So what do I think about Designer Whey Sustained Energy? It blends well (although the texture is a little grainy) and it tastes great! I love that it gave me energy and kept me full!
And yes Designer Whey sent me the SHAPE magazine (Hey Brit!) and bookmarked the pages where they were featured! There was a cute ad and also a recipe using pineapple, cinnamon, bananas, and the Vanilla Bean Sustained Energy powder in a smoothie. I can't wait to try that recipe!
QOTD: Do you have some kind of protein after your runs/workouts? Do you have protein in the middle of the day when you need some energy?
