As you might have read in my previous article ‘Finding the needle in the haystack when it comes to protein shakes’, I’ve accepted the challenge to explore the benefits of plant-based protein shakes. If you haven’t read the article yet, it is probably useful for you when you’re searching for alternative protein shakes. For those who are familiar with protein shakes, you probably already have developed your own habits in taking protein shakes. Personally I like to drink the shakes an hour before a workout. That way my body has enough ‘amino acids’ ingested to restore the muscles during and after a workout.
It has been nearly three weeks ago since I began taking the protein shakes of Enjoy Natural. Fully equipped with three different flavors, Baobab, Cacao and Moringa, I was more than ready to say ‘goodbye’ to a bloated belly and a welcoming ‘hello’ to the benefits! I was very curious about the smell and taste of the blends and I couldn’t wait to open them all.
As a true and unbeatable ‘choco-holic’ I tried the Cacao flavour first, it smelled kind of bitter as pure chocolate would too. The instructions on the packaging says that you should take one scoop of the plant-based protein and blend it together with 300ml of water. Personally, I’ve never been a real fan of blending my shakes with water since it will lose its structure and taste when you do. And since I am also lactose intolerant I decided to blend it with almond milk or coconut milk. The taste of the Cacao protein shake was a small disappointment because I was actually hoping to taste the inimitable taste of a bar Tony Chocolonely. But then again, the shakes of Enjoy Natural are pure and 100% natural without any additives and basically that is what our body needs. Because you really need to get used to the taste, I decided to process the powder into a tasteful party of an oatmeal breakfast. Enjoy Natural has a lot recipes on their website where you can get inspired to vary with the plant-based protein shakes.
