Until a couple months ago I hadn’t heard of Fitmixer – I think I was missing out. Once I checked out their site I knew they would be a perfect addition to the July smoothie challenge (they are giving one of the winners the product of their choice and a Fitmixer bottle!).
I also got the opportunity to try out their vanilla protein and their chocolate supplement drinks and I have so been loving them. There have been a few times lately where I’m just rushing out the door and I’ll just grab some Fitmixer, shake it up, and drink it on-the-go. I’ve also been using it in some delicious smoothies. Just the other day I made this delicious coffee pick-me-up…
Coffee Protein Pick-Me-Up
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 cup brewed coffee
- 1 scoop vanilla Fitmixer protein
- 6-10 cubes ice
- Truvia (optional – for those who like things extra sweet!)
Blend everything up in your high-speed blender and enjoy! I’ve also even just blended the protein with ice and some nutmilk/water for an extra boost of protein – it’s like a creamy vanilla slushie!
We don’t need all those expensive coffee drinks – just make this! Plus, this has protein in it which will keep your blood sugar stable, make it creamy without extra calories, and keep you fuller. Sometime I’ll have this in the middle of the day to beat that “afternoon slump”.
I love the chocolate Slim Fitmixer as well. The Slim line doesn’t have as much protein, but it has a LOT of fiber and less calories. It’s only 90 calories for one serving! To me, it’s a glorified chocolate milk and satisfies my chocolate cravings. I’m trying to get 25-30 grams of fiber in my diet daily, so this is awesome! It’s also supposed to up your metabolism, supply essential vitamins and minerals, and makes you feel full! I made my Mocha Manipulation Smoothie with this and it was amaaazing.
The vanilla Protein Fitmixer is crazy delicious. When you mix it with milk, it literally tastes like melted ice-cream. It has a great taste, but it’s also a wonderful balance of protein, amino acids, vitamins & minerals, carbs, and fiber. It’s supposed to decrease your appetite, build lean muscle, and increase your metabolism. Since I seem to be toning up a bit more lately, my guess is that Fitmixer protein is playing a part in that!
Cool Stuff about Fitmixer Products – What Makes it Different
One thing I really like about both Fitmixer products is the slow digesting sweetener they use. It’s called isomaltulose, a natural low-glycemic sugar found in honey and sugar cane, and it actually encourages the use of body fat as energy. I didn’t know a natural sugar had that potential!
It also contains a special blend of ingredients, called Tri-Flow, which is proven to increase nitric oxide in our bodies. For those of you who don’t know what that is (like me, before I looked it up!), nitric oxide can help give you the energy needed to build muscle while reducing fatigue.
I’ve been trying to add more protein to my diet, so thank you Fitmixer for these awesome supplements! Remember, if you participate in the smoothie challenge you might have a chance to win some Fitmixer products!
Have you tried Fitmixer? What are some ways that you incorporate more protein into your diet?
