The Expert's View of WHEY PROTEIN SMOOTHIE
"The International Olympic Committee Consensus on Sports Nutrition states to support a strength or speed based workout routine athletes require 1.7grams of protein per kg of bodyweight per day. Interestingly research conducted at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada later found that endurance athletes require a greater (or equal) intake of protein than strength athletes to prevent protein catabolism during exercise."
Research: Food, Nutrition and Sports Performance II: The International Olympic Committee Consensus on Sports Nutrition (Ron Maughan et al, 2004).
Serving size: 25g (one large 70ml scoop) of Whey Protein Smoothie
We recommend between 3-5 servings per day of Whey Protein Smoothie, depending upon your own individual needs. It is widely recommended that for optimal health benefits you should take 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day.
Add 150-200ml ice cold water or milk into your TPW™ Master Blender. Add one large 70ml scoop (25g of Whey Protein Smoothie), then mix well and consume.
The less liquid you use the thicker your smoothie will be, so adjust to suit your own personal tastes.
Additional Serving ideas:
To add an extra twist to your smoothie, try adding one large 70ml scoop of TPW™ Pure Fine Oats to create the complete breakfast smoothie.
Alternatively, almond milk works really well with our natural fruit smoothie flavours, so why not mix your smoothie with almond milk for a delicious super high protein drink.

I bought both the Blueberry Cush and Totally Bananas flavour.
Blueberry Crush - 4/5
Totally Bananas - 5/5
They both are great in texture and both have added fruit bits.
The banana is phenomenal, it tastes like an old school protein shake, like someone has blended bananas and milk together, it really is that good.
The Blueberry Crush has a great taste to it also but does taste like another blueberry protein shake that I've had before, maybe a little better.
Both are creamy, what I will say is get the consistency right and your on to a winner, if I had to say this is probably the best and most drinkable protein shake out there, I've definitely found my new consistent protein shake!
5* from me.
Mix with natural/Greek yoghurt and freeze for about an hour and WOW!! Like a tub of Ben and Jerry's only without the guilty feeling you get afterwards...
DO IT DO IT!!
There's a slight post-drink whey taste, but that's minor. Essentially, this smoothie is better than you expect it to be.
Since the above, I've committed to the Banana smoothie mix, moving up to a 1Kg bag and this is as good as the Blueberry option.
Had 3 today already.
Well, I ordered it late in the evening on Tuesday and it arrived this morning.
The blueberry flavour I mixed with skimmed milk in one of TPW shakers. Very good and tastes natural and the bits of real fruit is great!
I have just had the banana flavour which tastes better than one of the fruit smoothies you would get from a shop! I have finally found a great tasting product that I look forward to drinking and not cringing at the thought instead. Thanks TPW!!
I will definitely be ordering more and having this part of my every day diet.
So glad I could finally find a protein supplement that tastes great!!
tried red berry twist and also blueberry both amazing . Yet to try banana. Very nice product
This one mixes so well and tastes amazing (blueberry) but way better with milk
A recipe I use is mashed banana, 2 egg whites and half a scoop of this and mix it all up and stick it in the microwave for a couple of minutes. It makes a healthy desert that tasted like blueberry muffin!!
Will buy again
I'm a suffer of Crohns and am now a firm believer that you are what you eat and what you put into your body makes a huge difference. I have 2/3 shakes a day and then a small meal in the evening and manage to keep my condition at bay. Protein Works makes it so much easier and bare able for me - thank you, now looking forward to trying out the new diet range of the smoothies with brand new flavours!!
Yet another fab product from The Protein Works - so much choice and never had a bad product or poor service!
A very high quality product - I actually use this as a whey protein shake cause in my opinion it tastes so much nicer that the concentrate/isolate versions due to the thickness!
both mix really well, and yes obviously with milk [semi-skimmed] taste nicer.
flavours are good, banana for the smoothie and choc/coconut powder.
my main gripe is I really hate artificial sweeteners and have to say both have that aftertaste [for a non liker, its really yuck], smoothie being the worse of the two.
so like some others have said, have some mints around for afterwards.
however, I have also noticed that I have had the mother of all headaches that started not soon after starting using them [3 days ago] and for the first day had a feeling of wanting a really good burp!
burping feeling gone now, but headache loitering - i am assuming it is a kickback to the sweetener as i get used to it.
on a separate topic - ordered over weekend but before free shaker offer was advertised - emailed to see if i could get free shaker and got a prompt reply from warehouse [office closed at weekend] saying they would sort it out. And even better, THEY DID!!
delivery was good and within the time slot advised.
so, i will persevere with the after taste - but please TPW if you are reading this, can you look at a reduced/nil sweetener option in the flavoured mixes?

It tasted great as part of a smoothie I make aswell as on it's own. I add flaxseed and oats to it to make a fuller breakfast shake.
I like the fact it has bee pollen in to. I go through jars of it as full of vitamins.
I wouldn't buy this as your sole protein shake but good to add to the daily mix!
Back to the product - it's another epic tasting product that makes the mixture with milk thick like McDonald's shakes! (Though IMO blueberry crush has a slightly better taste)
Btw, I would recommend taking it with 150ml of milk since I tried 190ml and it was quite close to a whey isolate thin shake!
