Ok, I’m going to tell you what has been my lifesaver lately. I’m a smoothie freak, but I burn through blenders like mad! I’m on the lookout for a blender that can match my smoothie wrath. So far…the blender always loses.
So, here I am blenderless and trying so, so hard not to get a Starbucks or a Bahama Bucks.
I need a dang smoothie!
Being an on the go mom it can be hard to get in a good meal. I’m really trying to be healthier and going to the gym. I need something fast that I can take with me. I recently got a chance to try out Mix1 and that totally filled my smoothie void!
Mix1 has two products. The original product is an enhanced protein shake. It has 15 grams of whey protein isolate, 23 vitamins and minerals and the antioxidant equivalent of 3 servings of fruits and vegetables! The newest product is a hi-antioxidant fiber drink. It has the antioxidant equivalent of 9 servings of fruits and vegetables, 9 grams of whey protein isolate, and 8 grams of soluble fiber.
Why are antioxidants important?
Antioxidants absorb free radicals in the human body. Free radicals can break down healthy cells and potentially lead to a variety of health problems, sickness and disease. It is important to get antioxidants in order to neutralize cell-damaging free radicals.
The enhanced protein shake is a great workout shake. It provides up to 4 hours of balanced energy! The hi-antioxidant shake is best consumed with a meal or as a snack.
The taste and flavor variety are unbelievable!
Enhanced Protein shake
- Lime (My favorite)
Hi-antioxidant fiber drink
These drinks are thick! It is truly like drinking a smoothie! They really make you feel like you are having some sweet treat, not something good for you. But, they are good for you! Perfect for someone like me that just needs a little bad goodness, without really being bad! I am not ever hungry in the mornings but I know I need to have something to make my metabolism work right. These are perfect for me to drink and give me a good burst of energy that I need to get going in the morning.
I also do not consume enough protein in my diet which is very important for my health and weight loss. By drinking Mix1 I am getting a very good source of protein.
The Benefits of protein:
- builds & repairs muscle and encourages bone growth
- supports healthy metabolism & fat loss
- provides a source of energy
- supports healthy & stable blood sugar levels
I had the kids taste test these too and they were a huge hit! I love them, the kids love them. I would say we will definitely add these to the shopping list!
The MSRP is $2.29 for the enhanced protein shake and $2.69 for the hi-antioxidant fiber drink. So much cheaper than getting a smoothie at Bahama Bucks and the Mix1 drink is good for me!
Mix1 is sold nationally at Kroger and Whole Foods Market; regionally at King Soopers, Albertsons, Fred Meyer, Costco, Jewel-osco, Ralphs, HEB, City Market and QFC; as well as at independent grocery retailers across the United States.
