The Big Z Hot Chocolate Protein Drink Formula

Thousands of studies have been conducted into the area of nocturnal nutrition and the importance of recovery while the body sleeps. For this exact reason, we wanted to create our own nutrient dense formulation for the night time hours. The result, after months of research in the TPW™ Lab, is The Big Z Hot Chocolate Protein Drink. Made from a premium blend of Micellar Casein and Whey Protein Concentrate, it delivers a slow absorbing, high quality protein supply to the muscles whilst you sleep.

Nocturnal Amino Formula of The Big Z

The Big Z Hot Chocolate Protein Drink has been scientifically formulated using premium grade multi-sourced protein to form the perfect nutritional base. However, it's the night-time amino acid blend that really sets The Big Z Hot Chocolate Protein Drink apart. Containing L-Ornithine, L-Glycine, L-Tryptophan, L-Theanine and Leucine these heavily-researched amino acids work in synergy with the Micellar Casein and Whey Protein blend.

Made mine with unsweetened soya milk. It was thick, creamy, chocolatey and absolutely divine. No weird tastes or textures. This is my first introduction to TPW and I can't wait to see what else they have to offer!

This is quite a nice and moreish tasting protein based product, i find it works well to make awesome protein sludge when combined with some greek yogurt, i find when used pre bed this does provide deeper more restful higher quality sleep, i find it has an awesome choc malt flavour to it and something to look forward to consuming on a regular basis as my last meal of the day.

Taste great. Made with almond milk and still really creamy and chocolatey. Good amount of protein. Great drink on cold winter days.

Tpw have to be lying
Now I bought this thinking it’s gonna have a powdery texture or won’t be very chocolately cause well it’s healthy and full of protein.

But nope I was dead wrong and if I didn’t trust these lads and lasses after trying some of their other stuff I would swear this is chocolate Horlicks
