There are so many protein shakes on the market nowadays, and deciding which one to choose can really shake you up. Should you select a shake by its flavor, how many grams of protein it contains, how much it costs, what the ingredients are, or something else? If you're anything like me, you'll want to choose a protein shake that's already made and ready-to-drink, tastes great, and is full of good-for-you ingredients that fill you up and help build muscle.
CalNaturale's Svelte is all that and more. Not only do their shakes come in 5 mouthwatering flavors – chocolate, French vanilla, cappuccino, spiced chai, and banana crème, but each serving is packed with 11 grams of plant-based protein, more than 20% of the day's recommended daily fiber, and they are 100% organic. Not to mention, these shakes are gluten- and dairy-free (they are soymilk-based), and only have 6 grams of sugar. I couldn't ask for more, and neither will you.
I first came across Svelte at a health food store near my apartment and the cappuccino flavor caught my eye. "Enjoy Your Self" was splashed across the packaging, and with the promise of a creamy cappuccino plus protein, I was indeed ready to enjoy.
At just 180 calories per 11 fl. oz. container, this vegan and non-GMO shake was even tastier than I imagined it would be and was remarkably rich and sweet, as it is naturally sweetened with stevia. While I drank the whole thing down in one sitting, the re-closable cap is a nice feature for those who have the willpower to save some for later.
Not only are Svelte shakes great for getting much-needed protein, but my cappuccino shake contained 50% of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin B12, 25% of Vitamin E, 35% of my daily calcium recommendation, and was low in sodium and had no trans fat.
A pack of 8 containers of Svelte is only about $15 on Amazon if you don't see them at a store near you. Every one of their 5 flavors is decadently delicious and organically outrageous. Know you are drinking something that is natural and ready-to-go. Pre- or post-workout, as a snack or to-go breakfast, or anytime you're looking for something healthy to satisfy your sweet tooth, Svelte is the perfect drink that always delivers.
