More a Dessert than a Protein Shake
Posted by 5649150956425648240 on Aug 23, 2012
I use mainly ON and AST proteins powders and purchased this after hearing the reviews about the taste (although I don't typically buy protein powders based on taste but I fell for the hype and thought I was missing out on something so bought a few flavors to try). The Nutritional profile is not as good as the aforementioned brands (more calories, carbs & fats) although this is a blend and I use non blends (Whey & casein) in AST & ON so it's not really a fair comparison. The consistency of BSN lean desserts is a creamy thick shake however you can get the same results by adding guar & xantham gums to your standard whey protein. Mix-ability is good and there is no grainy texture or clumping. Taste wise it's a 7 out of 10, Certainly not amazingly gastronomically great, As some reviews on other sites would lead you to believe. I have a host of natural extracts & flavorings that I add to my protein shakes (cinnamon,vanilla, coconut, etc) so I tailor make my shakes to suite my own personal tastes and I do add coconut extract & stevia to my ON chocolate protein powder and get the same taste (with the benefit of the better nutritional profile of the ON product) So this seems to be a good on the go shake to have, If your not on a cut or dieting but if your a bit of a protein shake aficionado like myself and like to mix your own concoctions this will be nothing special.
I Love it

Yummy. I have tried Whipped Vanilla before but out of these 2, I prefer Choco Coconut candy. Use 1 cup of milk for 1 scoop and you get a creamy thick liquid Bounty.

Bf is taking. 2scoops in 10oz mixed with Soya bean drink is too thick! Suggest to reduce to 1.5scoops per 10oz, unless your liquid is not that thick.
all the way from new zealand!!!

This is wonderful! I have never tasted protein powder this good. It really is like dessert. I use it in baking and desserts, not as shake. It's a little bit less protein in this, than in many others. But I like it anyway, because of the taste. Almost dangerously good.
