Many say they can live without a lot of things..but they can’t get through a day without their coffee. With new research showing that coffee is actually antioxidant-packed and has physical and mental health benefits, who needs to give up their daily cup of Joe?
I drink at least one skim or soy latte daily and have never thought twice about it. I’m also always looking for high-quality sources of protein for post-exercise muscle recovery and to keep me fuller longer.
When a few samples of CLICK Espresso Protein Drink showed up at my door a few weeks ago, I thought this is brilliant but I wondered how would it taste?
I’m happy to report here that I LOVED these protein-espresso shakes. They taste more like something you’d get at a gourmet (read: pricey) coffee shop than a recovery shake. I like them after a CrossFit workout or trail run when I’m trying to meet my post-exercise recovery nutrition needs. I’ve even had them if I’m craving something in the afternoon and have energy- and brain-drain, I’ll have a quick CLICK to revive me.
[sws_blockquote_transparent align=”center” source=”” quotestyle=”sws_transparent02″] Each shake provides a double shot of espresso coffee, 15 grams protein, 23 vitamins and minerals, 7 grams sugar (1 ¾ tsp) and 120 calories. [/sws_blockquote_transparent]
