I’ve been trying out some awesome new (to me) protein powders and I’m so excited to tell you about them!
I received some About Time single serve protein powder packets in a multitude of flavors!
First, I made a post-workout shake with the Peaches & Cream flavor. Like Janetha, I grew up eating peaches and ice cream and those flavors totally remind me of happy childhood! For this shake I really wanted to taste the powder, so all I did was add water. Overall, it had a faint taste of peach with a nice creamy aftertaste. I wouldn’t describe it as tasting like cream but the vanilla flavor was still there. I liked this but I think I should have added it to almond milk or a bit of greek yogurt to bring out the taste more. Damn! Well, you live and learn!
Second, I used the Birthday Cake flavor in my usual protein smoothie in a bowl.
To be honest, this flavor always confuses me. What flavor is birthday cake? Mine were never the same – sometimes vanilla, sometimes chocolate, most of the time ice cream filled! (obviously before I learned of my lactose intolerance)
(OMG, side note: Arctic Zero filled birthday cake. HEAVEN)
I would say this birthday cake would be vanilla. Intense vanilla, though, and very nice. I really liked this powder and would probably buy this flavor in their 2lb containers because it seems like it’d be a good flavor base for baking & mixing w/ yogurt/pumpkin/anything.
Third, I used the Cinnamon Swirl flavor in a doughboy smoothie (I’ll wait until Saturday to talk about that one but it was awesome).
Why I love About Time protein powders. They’re tasty and not too sweet. The flavors never overpower or taste “fake” but just add a nice subtlety. Plus, you seriously cannot beat the nutritional stats! You get 25 grams of whey protein for only 103 calories! I can’t think of another protein powder that can claim that!!! Plus, I never get a stomach ache after using it and it doesn’t stay in huge clumps when mixed with water.
Basically, I’m in love with About Time and totally going to buy a 2lb container as soon as I decide on a flavor!
