I love using the MissFits nutrition pea protein powder sachets but it got even better when I combined their chocolate flavour with some avocado and peppermint extract because the result was a creamy, sugar free, high protein smoothie that tasted like the After eight chocolates!
A great choice for breakfast before a workout or as a recovery snack between the gym and your dinner later on that day.
Why I like this protein
This brand of protein is naturally sweetened with stevia meaning you don’t need to add any fruit or sugar so it’s a great option for anyone looking for a low sugar smoothie and also a good option for when there’s no fresh fruit in your kitchen or you have a ripe avocado begging to be used up.
Also, it contains added green tea extract for an energy boost which is great in the morning but it also acts as an antioxidant that can help protect the body from any exercise induced stress, great for those who workout hard or regularly. Their added vitamin B12 is the natural and more bio available form (methlycobalamin) compared to most varieties that are not (cyanocobalamin). Another added bonus is the digestive enzymes which help you digest the protein and other compounds in your meal.
Where to buy
These single serving sachets are really easy to get in Holland & Barrett and allow you to try each flavour out for yourself which I really recommend, so give this one a go and see what you think. They’re only 1.99 each and usually some kind of deal on them at the same time making them quite affordable to try before buying anything bigger. You can also get them online or at certain Tesco stores.
