Isopure Smoothie – Orange Peach

On February 12, 2010, in Protein, Reviews, by Andrea

First off — my apologies.  My computer is on the fritz and I can’t give you “Andrea” pictures.  I have to go with stock photos because I’m running in safe mode.  I need to flatten the computer, reload the operating system, and just start over from scratch.  But I’ve been too stubborn to do it and it’s cramping my productivity.  Seriously.  I just need to do it.  So sorry for the stock photos rather than the ones that I take to prove that I actually, you know, drank this and tasted it.

Peach Orange

Isopure Smoothie is made with 100% Pure Whey Protein Isolate. It comes in delicious yogurt like flavors and is lactose and aspartame free. Isopure Smoothie is a rich source of ALA Omega 3 (260mg)and contains more than 7400mg of BCAA’s.

I ordered a case from a company.  I ordered a case because, at the time, I didn’t have a choice.  If I wanted to taste these, I could order a case, or order none.  Well, I could order a single from another company and pay something like $7 for S&H making the drink cost me $13 so it seemed somewhat silly to do that for a single protein drink.  So since I was buying some things from this company anyway, I bought a case of 12 to try.

I mention this because the very next day – and I mean the absolute very next day?  They came out with a single serving option that I would have appreciated.

When I first opened it, it smells good.  A gentle whiff of peach.  Not overbearing whatsoever.  Nice.

First taste is great.  The second taste is great, too.

But then it hit –

The texture.

This is a BEAUTIFULLY, WONDERFULLY, GREAT flavored bottle of liquid chalk.

I mean it.  I love the flavor.  Completely lurve the flavor.  But the texture — it is *just* like liquid chalk.  It’s not gritty.  It’s just dry and … leaves you saying .. wow that’s chalky.

I mean it.  If it weren’t chalky I’d love it.  I LOVE the flavor.  Completely.  Absolutely.  I just don’t like the texture.

Ingredients: Filtered water, whey (milk) protein isolate, strawberry puree concentrate, pomegranate juice concentrate, raspberry puree concentrate, non dairy creamer (sunflower oil, maltodextrin, sodium caseinate, mono- and diglycerides, dipotassium phosphate, soy lecithin), phosphoric acid, milled flaxseed, pectin, citric acid, cellulose gel, sucrose, cellulose gum, natural and artificial flavors, fish oil, sucralose, FD&C Red 40.

Directions: Shake well. Refrigerate after opening. Aspartame free.

If you can get past the texture, this is a wonderful protein.  It’s a large quantity for a newly post-op patient, but for those of a more mature patient it’s pretty good.  The sugars that are in it are from fruit sugars, so if you are sensitive to those you should be cautious.  But many of us have no issues with those types of sugars.

Seriously — this is worth a try if you get an opportunity to try one without buying an entire case at a time.  It does come in different flavors — I’m not sure if the others are the same way -0- I’d be interested in tasting them to find out.  I LOVE the flavor, but the texture is what gets me.

Price: about $3.50-$5.00 each depending where you get them and how many at a time you get

Where: all over the net

Rating: WONDERFUL flavor, where’s a chalkboard?

    It certainly isn’t my favorite. But I bought a case (no singles), and it’s ready-to-drink (I can’t be bothered to mix something right now..) so trying to drink them up. At least it’s GOOD flavored chalk. Right? (Says the girl who is decent at finding sunlight in the clouds. Or something.)

    Well – GOOD flavored orange peach chalk – is better than TERRIBLE flavored orange peach chalk. I never really ‘get’ a chalky feel from most any product – BUT – my mouth gets very very very dry… Oh well – just drink lotsa water… Have a good day Andrea!!
