Designer Whey describes Sustained Energy as:
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 was excited about this opportunity because I have enjoyed designer Whey's products in the past and I use a lot of protein powder for training nutrition and recovery.
I tried vanilla bean in my protein recovery shake
The shake kept me full and tasted great! What's in it:
This is a great recovery drink or breakfast. If you have a rushed morning you can pre-make this shake and store it in the freezer.
To try the chocolate flavor I whipped up Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls. There are great for fueling on the bike when you want a little protein and cabs. Also it's cheaper than the pre packed stuff and not full of preservative!
Homemade Protein Balls:
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup honey
- 3/4 cup oatmeal
- 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 chocolate designer whey sustained protein powder
- Pinch of salt optional
- heat the peanut butter in the microwave for 20-30 seconds mix well with honey
- Mix in the oatmeal, flour, salt and protein powder. Stir until well blended
- Mold into balls, bars or whatever shape you want. I like to use a mellon baller to make bite sized balls for easy eating on the bike.
Want to try Sustained Energy out? I have been given the opportunity to give a few tubs out. Leave a comment below with the flavor you would like to try (chocolate or vanilla bean). I will contact you for shipping information by next Monday if you are selected.
I was provided with this opportunity via my affiliation with FitFluential. I was given the products at no cost to myself, but was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are my own!
