Premier Protein Mixed Berry Smoothie |

Since I’m a before work workout enthusiast I like to have something portable to have after my workouts while driving to work and usually a protein drink is the easiest way to accomplish this. Premier Protein offered me product and compensation for this post, but opinions are all mine.

These individual protein drinks are great because I don’t have to worry about keeping it upright while carrying all my bags out the door in the morning and getting everything situated in the car. Maybe not a big deal to some, but I go down stairs carrying a lunch bag, work bag, gym bag, clothes bag and post-workout meal.

Premier Protein Mixed Berry Smoothie has been a delicious morning option with 15 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and 60% less sugar than the leading refrigerated protein smoothie. With 140 calories, it keeps with my goal of only eating back about half of the calories I burn in my morning workout.

I know some people worry about the beverage will not keep them satisfied throughout the morning as they head into lunch, but with the right mix of protein, carbs and fats this works for me to keep me full and energized. As for the taste, it is good and fruity not odd or weird sweet and if you’ve tried other protein drinks you know what I mean by odd an weird.
