An Introduction To MyProtein

Thursday, March 26, 2015
Myprotein is a brand that I have been aware of for a while but I have never bought anything from them as I thought it was just protein powders and shakes which doesn't interest me personally. However, they have much more than just protein powders; they have coconut oil, porridge, cookies, cashew nut butter, nuts, green tea extract and so much more. 

I have a few products to try out, firstly the *MyProtein Virtue Bar (£9.99 for 12 bars, Double Chocolate) which only lasted a couple of minutes..oops! It tastes like oats and chocolate, it is really quite yummy and so much nicer than I initially thought it would be. The bar is much healthier than regular breakfast bars or chocolate bars as it contains calcium and it is high in protein. 

Next up is the *Myprotein Fruit and Veg (also called Superfood XS, £14.99) which is a powdered mix of freeze dried fruit and vegetables. I am a vegetarian and I love certain fruit and vegetables although I don't get my five a day so this powder is a great way to increase my intake of fruit and vegetable in a very quick and easy way. I just add half a scoop full (approx. 2.5g) of the powder to the *Myprotein Mini Blender Bottle (£1.99) along with 300ml of fresh orange juice. The bottle has a measuring gauge printed on the side so you can keep track of your fluid intake, it comes with a metal ball which is great for mixing the powder into liquids and it is cute too! The powder is unflavoured but it does make the orange juice taste a little weird, it's not unpleasant but it is different. I love that it is so easy to incorporate into my everyday routine and I love the bottle. I think it would be great for smoothies too (and it's so cheap!). My only negative point about the powder is that the third highest ingredient is 'french red wine extract' which as someone who very rarely drinks, it is an odd inclusion and I would definitely prefer it if the powder didn't contain alcohol. Although I think it is included because of the antioxidants it contains. 

Lastly, the *Myprotein Coconpure Certified Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (£6.99 sale, 460g). I have been using Tescos own coconut oil for oil pulling but I've never tried it within cooking/baking. I made some chocolate and coconut oil cookies a few days ago (if you follow me on Instagram then you would have seen them already, they were massive!). The cookies turned out so well, I am definitely going to make them again and look into more baking recipes that use coconut oil! This Myprotein coconut oil has not been refined, it is cholesterol free, it doesn't contain any GMO ingredients but it does contain healthy fats which can boost metabolism and apparently help support the immune system. The coconut oil and chocolate cookie recipe will be on my vegetarian food blog next month. 

Overall, I am so glad that I had the opportunity to try some products from Myprotein as it is a brand that I never would have tried myself. I would definitely buy the bottle and coconut oil as well as the fruit and veg powder (although I would only buy the smaller size). I would recommend the products I've tried!
