I have an extra special post for y’all today. I feel like I haven’t sponsored a giveaway in a REALLY long while, true story. So I was super stoked when this came upon me.
I was recently given the opportunity to try Designer Whey Sustained Energy Protein and I want to share my thoughts with you now that I’ve had it in a few forms – I like to play with my protein. I make ice cream, shakes, pancakes, etc. I’ve found this stuff works awesome as a flavor & protein base for a super thick shake. Before bed I like to have a substantial amount of protein & fat, as well as when I wake up (not necessarily post-workout, I tend to stick to carbs + protein and avoid fats post-workout.) My favorite way to use this stuff? In the morning when I need a little energy boost…I also love that it’s got fiber in it too.
From their website:
“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!”
I find it beneficial for me to have casein before bedtime too. Although I’m not a huge fan of soy products, I felt comfortable adding this to a few of my protein shakes/pancakes/etc per week, just not every single day, as I try to limit my soy (unless it’s fermented.)
My favorite flavor? I’m definitely a vanilla girl…chocolate is great, sure, but I’m going to rebel against most of the female population at the moment.
My favorite way to use it? Protein ice cream! It’s also AWESOME mixed with coffee, coconut milk & poured over ice.
For the protein ice cream, I usually just blend 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup coconut milk, frozen fruit (usually bananas work best) a scoop of Designer Whey and a handful of ice. For extra -creamy ice cream, freeze for a few hours and blend again.
Want to try some Designer Whey for yourself?
