My dear friend Jen had jaw surgery recently and her mouth is currently wired shut. I wanted to support her in her recovery, so I put together a care package for her with particle free beverages that were in appealing flavors for her to try.
I was at Whole Foods and didn’t know which protein shakes I wanted to purchase, so I started with the flavors that sounded the most delicious and of foods my friend may miss eating. Well, Jen is from the South and loves Southern Banana Pudding, and actually makes a wonderful one herself! So when I saw there was a banana creme flavored protein shake I knew that was the one I wanted to get her.
The brand is Svelte and it is an organic, plant based protein shake. This appealed to me because often times pre made protein shakes can taste a little like chemicals or really fake flavor wise. I picked up one for myself too because I am always on the hunt for a great snack or breakfast on the go. This shake is gluten-free and packed with 11 grams of protein and 20 percent of your daily recommended fiber and only 180 calories!
I chilled mine in the fridge because I prefer my shakes cold. I tried it today and OH-MY-GOODNESS (and I do mean goodness) this shake is amazing. The banana flavor is mild and oh so very creamy. The shake is the perfect consistency and really was so satisfying. I felt like I was indulging in a healthy version of Southern Banana Pudding! I am obsessed and know Jen will be too. It is so gratifying to finally find a pre made shake that honestly tastes like the description!
I purchased mine at Whole Foods for $2.79 per shake, but they do come in 4 packs which will save a bit of money. They come in other flavors, Chocolate, French Vanilla, Cappuccino, and Spiced Chai.
