Breakfasts can be challenging in the morning. We often find ourselves needing something that can be eaten on the run because we’ve hit the snooze button one to many times. “BOOST Vanilla Instant Breakfast Drink Mix” can be prepared quickly and easily for a quick breakfast on the go.
“BOOST Vanilla Instant Breakfast Drink Mix” is a convenient breakfast powder mix that can be added to glass of milk or your favourite smoothie. It mixes in easily with no clumps.
Normally we add a whey protein powder to our smoothies as it doesn’t contain all the extra sugar. This comes in at a whopping 20g of sugar per serving! That’s a bit much for us to feel good about feeding our children first thing in the morning.
While the “BOOST Vanilla Instant Breakfast Drink Mix” may not be the right choice for my kids, it was recommended by my mother’s nutritionist to help her add needed calories to her diet. Protein powders tend to be lumpy and require more effort to blend into your drink, the convenience this mix offers makes it an ideal option for my mother. For her being able to mix it with milk for a quick meal is important.
The advertised 15g of protein and 50% calcium and vitamin D are only true when mixed with milk. The dry mix only contains 7g of protein and 20% of calcium.
The flavour of this mix is what makes it stand out from the whey protein powders we traditionally use. It has a mild vanilla flavour unlike the chalky flavour of most protein powders.
The canister doesn’t come with a scoop, so we use a measuring cup. The opening of the canister is large making it easy to measure out a portion.
“BOOST Vanilla Instant Breakfast Drink Mix” is a good option for the occasional breakfast on the run.
