I’ve tried a couple of different protein drinks and didn’t really like them because they have a milky taste or texture. So I was curious if I could find a drink that’s high in protein that doesn’t taste of dairy. And I found reference to something called “clear protein”.
The clear protein products use something called hydrolysed clear whey isolate which can be made into a clear fresh-tasting fruit flavoured drink (a bit like fruit squash) rather than a milky protein shake.
There aren’t loads of options about where to find these products, but I did find somes sold by a website called myprotein.ie – although don’t be fooled by the Irish domain name, because this is a UK company. However they do have free shipping to Ireland for orders over 50 euros.
Their product is called Clear Whey Isolate and the drink looks like this:
When you make it up, it looks and tastes just like a fruit juice. There’s not a hint of a milky taste. And best of all, it’s sugar free at around 90 calories a drink, but with 20 grams of protein. It also seems to have hundreds of 5-star reviews from people that have tried it.
I bought myself 2 different flavours from the selection of 11 options. I tried both of them – the Cranberry & Raspberry, and the Bitter Lemon – and I love them both.
The prices aren’t exactly cheap. It’s €27.49 for a tub that makes 20 drinks. So that’s €1.38 per drink.
There’s also a vegan version of the product that’s made from pea protein and only has 10 grams of protein per drink, and it’s more expensive – but this might be a good option for vegans and those that have a bad reaction to dairy.
