Love this fast breakfast on the go, healthy and light. Feeling good and not hungry until lunch. A little too sweet. Awaiting other tasts?
Really impressed on this occasion. I've been having it with a cup of skimmed milk and blended up. It tastes amazing and with the extra milk it's about 25g protein which is more acceptable for breakfast. Looks kinda gross as it's bright green, or looks like one of those posh spinachy health drinks... But it's actually quality. Love the caffeine too. Wish it was slightly cheaper though as for everyday breakfast it's a bit pricey. Good work MP.
If you're looking for a breakfast shake you can't go wrong with this. I use it to make smoothies with, add extra fruit, oats and ice to it and whizz it in a blender with milk, water or almond milk. Its not overly sweet, totally drinkableand super filling. I've also added it when I juice fruits to give them more fulliness. Havent tried it with green juices but I'm all out! Deffinately recommend it.Goes Well With:Oats, milk, almond milk, fruits, ice, other protein powders, water, juices
I got a 500g pouch of this through one of Myprotein's offers, and I'm really enjoying it. It mixes nicely, and has a good taste, abit of the sweeter side, so works well as a snack between meals. Almost same stats as a whey shake, so helps boost my protein intake a ton.
Been using this a week now one scoop a morning and it has eliminated any mid morning hunger that used to occur easily drinkable. Very sweet as other users have already mentioned but personally I don't mind this.

Love this product! It regularly saves me when I have an early start and just want to throw something down my neck, or toss it in the bag for mid-morning consumption. It blends well with oats & fruit if you fancy mixing it up a bit. The caffeine is a good little 'boost' and the psyllium helps keep things regular. The only downside is that it is really really sweet! Fortunately it's sweetened with Sucralose, so pretty benign (although I find it a little 'chemical' tasting).. but bottom line - I really don't want or need my breakfast health shake to be as sweet as Lucozade. If people need things super sweet, it's much easier for them to add sweeteners than for the rest of us to remove it. Will I buy this again? Yes, probably - but I'll still be wincing a bit at the sweetness when drinking it.
Nice and easy to drink. Great protein boost first thing in the morning and nice flavours. I'm not a big fan of consuming large amounts of protein from solid foods first thing in the morning, having a breakfast smoothie is the perfect compromise.

Needed a little breakfast drink for those days when protein porridge or eggs are just too heavy to stomach in the morning. The review about this being too sweet, did make me think twice about purchasing it but I'm glad I did. For those of us protein shake drinking veterans, the sweetness of this product is no more than any other that you'd buy and consume from MP. For those buying this, fully knowing that it's Banana&Strawberry flavoured, and who openly admit to disliking these flavours and feel the need to express their dislike for the taste in the reviews... well, I have no words. The 'greens' are not detectable. The Banana&Strawberry flavour is in no way overpowering. The caffeine gives a mini boost.. or is it the ginseng? Who knows.. I'm awake now though, without coffee. For those concerned about the sweetness, I did test batch and mixed it with skimmed milk... this does dilute the 'sweetness'. Right, let's go and attack the day!
This does exactly what I wanted it to. I'm too busy in the morning to eat breakfast, so I can make this smoothie and drink it on the way to work. The only problem I have with it is the taste. I find it very sweet. But also I don't like banana or strawberry milkshakes and that is what it reminds me of.

Thought I would give this a try instead of mixing my own version (impact whey, ground oats, greens and a cup of coffee on the side) it mixes well, and doesn't taste too bad which given I normally hate strawberry and banana flavoured anything is praise indeed. Only problem for me is that it is far, far, far, far (i cannot stress this enough) to sweet. I unfortunately don't have a sweet tooth at all and as such have an issue with pretty much all flavoured proteins that they are just to sweet, but this is ridiculous. So if you need a sickly sweet kick in the morning then this is great if not you may want to give it a miss.
