Hurricane XS is an 'all-in-one' formula designed to help with recovery after an intense bout of exercise by providing a blend of protein, carbohydrates (Dextrose and InstantOats), Creatine Monohydrate (Creapure®) and HMB (Beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate).
Hurricane XS includes a high protein combination of Whey Protein Isolate and Whey Protein Concentrate to contribute to the growth and maintenance of lean muscle mass. There is also 5g of Creatine Monohydrate (Creapure®) in each serving to increase physical performance in successive bouts of short-term, high intensity exercise, and 1.5g of HMB (Beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate) per serving.
Huuricane XS now comes in a range of amazing flavours so you can find your favourite!
This is ideal for anyone taking part in intense physical activity and is looking to increase daily protein and carbohydrate intake. It is recommended to consume Hurricane XS immediately post work-out.
Hurricane XS can be taken with water or milk as a smooth post workout shake, or if you feel like getting creative, you can incorporate Hurricane XS into your favourite yoghurts and desserts.
Add 350ml of water or milk into our shaker (the less liquid the thicker the shake will be). Then add 2 MP large scoops (70g), shake and consume. We recommend 2 servings daily, preferably one in the morning and one post workout. If you workout in the morning take one serving before you workout and one serving 6 hours later.

I am a 58 year old woman who has not trained seriously with weights for a few years and now has quite a bit of fat to shift. My gym trainer gave me intervals to do which I have been finding very hard and seeing little improvement in. Despite my heart rate/CV fitness improving I was not finding the intervals any easier and even seemed to be losing strength. After supplementing with Hurricane XS twice a day for 2-3 weeks I am now starting to see good improvements in the intensity and recovery in my intervals - it has just clicked in and I am sure that it is the Hurricane supplement that is helping here as I was previously just taking a protein shake that seemed to have no or little effect. Last night in the gym I also had more strength and endurance with my weights following on from the intervals - not felt that good for years.
I've tried various protein shakes from a number of the big named brands, but seem to come back to hurricane xs after each one. It mixes well, doesn't leave me feeling bloated and is giving the desired added muscle mass. I'm working towards gaining as much muscle mass as possible whilst maintaining an athletic physique, so don't want to sacrifice abs for big arms - this shake fits the bill perfectly. Although the taste doesn't bother me with protein shakes, these are generally pretty good; although on the sweet side. (I've tried choc-nut, Raspberry, Rum & Raisin And Latte)
Ticks all the boxes. Im 30 now and I've only just got back into the exercise and supplement thing after breaking a few bones and giving it a miss for a few years but after 3 months I have to say that I am very impressed with this stuff. Obviously I dont have a huge amount of experience to compare this to other products but using it alongside a healthier diet and hitting the gym 2-3 times a week I have packed on lean muscle- so much so i need to by new shirts for work!! I have lost around 3% bodyfat and put on a stone. The DOMS (muscle soreness) the next day is almost unnoticeable despite heavy weights or long cardio which is great and it taste pretty dam good too. I highly recommend the strawberry cream as even with water, which is how i normally take it it tastes fantastic, the banana is OK and very drinkable with water but both taste amazing with milk!!! Goes Well With:Water if its strawberry cream!
I'm writing this review because I now see the importance of reading other peoples reviews before buying! I fancied giving pineapple flavour a go because it sounded nice! It was ok for a couple of weeks but gradually struggled with it and now I just can't bear it! It's so chemically which is really disappointing - don't know if it's just due to the flavour!? Even the thought of it makes me feel sick and my stomach churns for hours after drinking it. Usually I can just neck shakes and get over it but not with this! So I've rated effectiveness as only 3 - if you can't drink it, it can't be very effective can it (however it does mix pretty well on the plus side). I love all the other stuff but I just can't handle this :( So I'd recommend staying off pineapple and I've heard similar about the raspberry so maybe go for chocolate and avoid the fruity ones - I'm sure you can't go wrong with chocolate! Hopefully MyProtein will make me a nice dark chocolate flavour :)Goes Well With:Nothing I've found yet :(
Product itself is fine and good value for money, I think there are better products on the market but equally you will pay a much higher price, for me and what I need this item is fine! One mistake though (PINEAPPLE!!!) - Never again as it tastes horrible!!!!Goes Well With:Best with water I find as it tastes worse with Milk!!!
I have consistently used Impact Whey Protein for a number of years now, but occasionally I buy a pouch of Hurricane XS to switch things up a bit. I always ache regardless of what supplements I take however I definitely notice the difference when I switch to Hurricane XS due to the extra HMB and Creapure; it lessens the ache and I recover quicker. Having a sweet tooth I have tried a fair few flavours, all of which I found great in taste, mixed well with both water and milk, and definitely do the job in terms of helping to reach macros. The curbed most of my sweet cravings and if not I just had another shake or made a pudding by mixing a scoop of the shake, an egg, some cocoa powder and sometimes peanut butter in a mug. Choc Smooth is always a safe bet, consistently nice in taste. Choc Mint is nice but seemed to hurt my throat on occasion. Choc Peanut Butter (what I have at the moment) is really nice! It reminds me of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, hopefully it won't get sickly. Cookies and Cream is quite nice, it takes a while to get used to as it's quite sickly at first but I did grow to like it. Vanilla is fine but gets a bit boring and tasteless (but that's after two 5kg bags). White Chocolate is good, quite similar to cookies and cream, only tried samples of this flavour, I would imagine it becomes a bit sickly. I looked at a lot of reviews before trying new flavours, but it is completely subjective, my favourite flavour would have to be either Choc Smooth or Choc Peanut Butter! Even though the majority of the Peanut Butter reviews weren't great. As a whole I would recommend this product to anyone wanting to get more seriously into the gym and make more significant gains as opposed to just getting a bigger chest and biceps. As an all-in-one it is easier to consume the extra supplements without having to scoop out of various pouches which really saves a lot of effort when you are in a rush or lead a busy lifestyle. Worth the extra bit of money but I tend to wait for deals.Goes Well With:Water, Milk & Greek Yoghurt.
The product itself is great, recovery and etc has already been spoken about. I love it, especially with inbuilt oats. But careful of going COOKIES AND CREAM! It sounds good on paper, but in practice it's too much! The taste is fine, dare I say lovely; if it was after a gastro meal and dessert was on the way. But first thing in the morning, or around a workout ugh. Too much! Too sweet and sickly. If you live and die by sweet things then you'll love it. It is literally a dessert in a shaker. But too much for me personally. As a generally strong taste person (black coffee, 85% chocolate) this leaves me feeling genuinely sickly/urgh. (like eating 4 snickers in one go, what?!) The taste lingers like a mother too, blah! Cookies and cream is like my mother in law, makes me sick to my stomach to think about it, and experience it. I'm soldiering through the rest of my bag and sticking with tried and tested vanilla next time.Goes Well With:Milk Water (make sure it's icey cold, straight from tap temperature is deathly with Cookies and cream)
I bought this product and have been using it for a few weeks, can see it is working already which is great. Unfortunately i thought I'd be adventurous and opt for the chocolate orange flavour.. if you want my advice stick with the original chocolate. Tasts awful, i really struggle to get it down as a breakfast replacement, its not to bad in the afternoon though. Goes Well With:Water
This stuff works which is the main thing. Weight lifted went up after a few days, surprised myself. I train early morning & managed to get this down at 0430. Taste is ok maybe a tad sweet, just remember why you're taking it. If you want a real shake then go to McDonald's. I'm now trying chocolate only. Would & have brought again
only use as a recovey drink after running,cycling and a few weights but works very well ,mixes excellent ,got chocolate orange as it was on sale a little sweet but if you like chocolate orange chocolate you will like this
I have been working out at the gym for the last eight months during which time I started using maxi muscle cyclone for recovery etc. This is a great product but very expensive. My mate at the gym directed me towards hurricane xs. At first I thought can this stuff be anywhere near as good for the price. The answer is simply " yes" if not better. Easy to order and always discounted with the codes. Quick delivery and hurricane xs is an excellent product. Tastes good (banana flavour) mixes well, good for the pocket and does exactly what it says. I will only purchase hurricane xs and always buy any other supplies through "my protein" in the future.Goes Well With:Milk on a morning for slow release and water pre and post workout.
As the guy below said, I can't fault the effectiveness as this product as an all-in-one protein product, however I the taste of this is probably the worst thing I have ever tasted. I struggle to keep it down as soon as the aftertaste comes into effect. The below reviewer couldn't have described it more accurately. I do recommend Hurricane XS as a great supplement to aid muscle growth, just don't get this flavour!
Made a huge mistake here! You'll notice I gave the full 5 stars due to the product's effectiveness which is second to none, however if there was a star rating for the flavour I bought, maple & pecan, I would have scored it 0... The initial taste is bearable; I would compare it to very bitter dark chocolate, however the aftertaste leaves my face in a whole world of problems every morning / evening. It tastes similar to what I imagine a car engine might taste if it was possible to melt it down & blend it... As I've said above though - cannot fault Hurricaine XS itself, just steer clear of maple & pecan!!
Having been a long time user of maxi muscle cyclone I was reluctant to change however finances forced my hand. I had read good reviews about hurricane xs so have it a try. I found it mixed well and tastes good (vanilla), performance wise I would say it easily equals if not surpasses what I was lifting with cyclone. Recovery seems better after a heavy session too. I would recommend this.
I decided to try this after using both impact whey protein and micellar casein as well as separate creatine. This out does all three! I have had trouble keeping weight on using the others and hurricane xs seems to be doing the job, I'm also lifting heavier as a result. I'm amazed at how well it mixes too with water or milk, not a trace of powder left in the corners of the shaker after use unlike whey and casein. I got natural strawberry and natural banoffee. The strawberry tastes incredible and the banoffee is nice but getting a bit sick of it already. Definite buy if you're trying to maintain/ increase weight
My son (U18 rugby player) has been looking for the past few months on a shake to use. He has had plenty of advise from coaches, physios & other players. He finally decided on Myprotein, which all I can say was a great choice. He went for the Rocky Roads flavour which he absolutely loves (only problem is that tastes too good & wants to drink more often than he should). He's been using for a couple of weeks & has felt a definite improvement in how his muscles are feeling & has improved not only muscle mass but also the recovery from exercise. The shake is so easily mixed & never has lumps in it, regardless of whether it is mixed with water or milk. Great product & would definitely recommend. Only decision to make now is whether to try another flavour.
I haven't been using H-XS for very long, but overall I'm pretty happy. - Taste: 4 stars. I've got a real thing for chocolate, so it was a no-brainer to go for a choc flavour after using average strawberry-flavoured products. The only thing really is that it's a little on the sweet side for me, and can become quite sickly if drunk very quickly or frequently in a small period of time. However, when mixed with milk (and other ingredients to personal preference) it makes a nice milkshake meal replacement. When mixed with water it's unsurprisingly thinner and the taste suffers somewhat (as with most other powder products), but this isn't a deal breaker at all. Mixability: 4 stars. As mentioned above, it mixes fine with milk and water depending on requirements. Again, just one problem - the powder has lots of noticeable white bits in, some of which are quite large. I assume these to be creatine that weren't ground down fully, but I have had to spit out undissolved 'bits' on more than one occasion. Again, not a deal-breaker but not ideal either. Effectiveness: 3 stars. I only give it 3 stars for effectiveness because I haven't been using it long enough (around 3 weeks) to see 'long-term' effects. However, in these few weeks I have noticed I have been retaining more muscle mass, and am able to more reps etc when in the gym. My body fat seems to be very slightly dropping (I use H-XS for both pre/post training and meal/snack replacement), though I haven't had this tested properly yet so could be wishful thinking! Goes Well With:- Milk and oats
This is my first 'all-in-one' supplement purchase from My Protein, having used others from a number of different companies. I have to say that this is a truly excellent product. It's effective, offers superb value and is ideal for my training. Helps with gains, strength and recovery. Hats off to MP on this one!
Im using the product for 2 week and I find it effective in short term. After i consume i always feel a big amount of energy - the post workout session is much easier. I bought latte - a little too sweet for my taste, but its okay. I have one problem though - it needs much more time to mix then the basic whey protein.Goes Well With:Water. More then recommended ~ 500ml
Bought the Hurricane XS Choc Mint flavour 2 weeks ago. Been drinking 2 shakes a day and gotta say it tastes great (although I do have a sweet tooth). Hadn't seen too many reviews for this flavour but thought I'd give it a try. Worth the money and great taste. I've never used protein supplements before so can't really comment on the performance but I'm happy with the product and have faith that I'll see a difference if I keep it up!
I got the pineapple flavour and I was wrong to! How it was flavour of the month is beyond me. The product itself is good. Myprotein is a great company and I got it delivered super fast. Shame about the taste and the fact it makes my stomach feel like a war zone
Well, It's the first time I've tried hurricane XS. I got the cookies and cream flavour and well, it was alright. It was too sweet for me that is probably because I don't have much of a sweet tooth. I was recommended this product by my older brother who used this and had immense results. I've heard good things. Only downside I would say about this product is that at the bottom of the shake, there is always some powder left over. It's grainy too, and it won't go away no matter how hard I shake it. But other than that, it's good. Would recommend cookies and cream if you've got a sweet tooth :) It goes well with; milk, water and oats.
Banana tastes great. Good all in one supp for rugby players. Goes well with oats.
I jumped on the bandwaggon and saved 15% for the "flavour of the month", it was pineapple. It is super sweet, almost too sweet and leaves me feeling abit sick. Brilliant product, for a brilliant price. Will try different flavour next time.Goes Well With:1% milk 300ml/scoop
I have been using this product on and off for about 6 months, and when using it with the proper training routine (and not careering towards the pub!) I have seen some amazing results. I went with the Strawberry Cream flavour, which is actually fine, but after you have been taking it every day for 6 weeks it can get quite sickly, and it takes a while to get through 5 kg to change flavour, so choose wisely. It also tastes pretty rank with water so I'd recommend either skimmed milk, or almond milk, which it mixes really well with and tastes great. I have approx. one 45 g serving a day (One and a half scoops) with about 300 ml of Almond milk and it mixes really well and digests really quickly. I also take it with Alpha Men Daily and the two work great in unison. I'd recommend it to anyone who asked. Goes Well With:Almond Milk, Alpha Men Suppliment
I've always had good results with the Hurricance XS range. But saying that i recently changed flavour to the Latte. What a mistake that was. It is ridiculously sweet almost sickly. Being health conscious I watch what i eat and drink, and with the high sweetness it just doesnt feel good taking in something that sweet. I have found that the raspberry is the most pleasent tasting in this range
Brilliant product! Used weight gains with protien shakes & got some good results. Nothing like this though, very impressive results & works quick!! Highly recommended. I had Raspberry & Natural Strawberry & enjoy both, Strawberry with milk is just like a McDonald's shake. Best for me is with 500ml of semi skimmed milk (green). Definitely sticking with this now.
I bought this to help with recovery after gym work outs and also to hopefully speed up a recent muscle tear. I'm too lazy to put together all the appropriate supplements, so an all-in-one was ideal for me. It's a little early to rate the effectiveness, but recovery times appear to be quicker and I even quite like the taste (you really do need to like banana milk shakes if you go for the banana flavour). It mixes much better with milk than water and you do need to give it a good long shake in the mixer in order to avoid a powdery aftertaste. Delivery was very prompt as usual. Goes Well With:BCAAs before work out.
Great product far better than a well known brand i had been using. Excellent price aswell. Chocolate smooth is a very tasty shake. One i look forward to pre workout and post
I've moved onto hurricane xs from impact whey and it's worth the transition. Alot more filling and if u train hard u notice the increase in power. Abit gritty compared to impact whey but I can handle that. I'm taking it with BCAA+ tabs. If you train hard then this is for you. If you don't train hard it will make you fat
I just wanted to see whether people were making lean gains or fat gains on this. I love Hurrican XS post work out and feel it is fantastic for recovery. My concern is the past 3 weeks since taking it I've cut out alcohol and carbs, have 1 shake a day and have put on around 8lbs-10lbs. I don't believe this is all lean muscle. As far as the product is concerned tastes great and mixes well.
Hurricane xs is good, I got the natural chocolate flavour which was delicious on the first shake, then gets abit sickly after the first. I've used it for about a month obviously not a huge difference in this period but I can see slight changes, it is quite easy to put abit of a belly on with this shake, so be careful, make sure you work abbs and do cardio more. Ordering again now, perhaps a different flavour now
Great product altho i wouldnt get the toffee flavour again as its a tad on the sweet side.. I knew i should of got mint choc..
"I do a lot of cardio-based work, cross country running, badminton and football as well as going to the gym 3 times a week for weight based training. Other products in the past had slowly got my muscle mass up. After an enforced break due to breaking my fingers, not weight training but running, I lost 2 stone in 2 months and my strength was pathetic. I was informed of this product by an instructor at the gym who had a similair build to the one that I had as i told him I wanted to get bigger again quicker. Within a month of getting the all clear to do weights again by doctors, I've seen a vast and rapid improvement in my build, I'm close to my original 'look' but a bit short off getting my 2 stone back. My mass and all round energy levels in the other activities I take part in have improved as well. The next day aches after league games are almost none existent (except if I've been clattered). I got the choc-mint flavour and mix it in an empty plastic bottle, two scoops an 75% fill with water, shake and then drink. At first I had problems with the creatine being lumpy even after shaking with water, but found that if I give the bottle a good shake with just the powder in before putting water in, there are no problems with lumps at all."
I've had the strawberry cream impact whey previously which was quite sweet but very tasty. Tried a banana impact whey last time and didn't like the after taste. Still getting through it, but thought I'd try a sample of the chocolate smooth hurricane XS. Really great taste so I ordered a 5kg bag. Can be a little gritty but I pop it into a nutri bullet, add some skimmed or soya milk, a small banana, 10 walnuts and blend for 15 seconds and wow, what a great post workout smoothie! Tried it an hour and half before a 10km training run and I seemed to have more energy and able to get further. Also getting more muscle definition following strength exercises. I will be ordering more!Goes Well With:water, but I prefer it with skimmed milk or soya milk for a thicker shake.
You definitely get a lot for your money and scoop was included! I went for the unflavoured option and the taste isn't great but I just get it down me. Muscles are repairing well and it has given me more power, will use again. Goes Well With:Water
I'm sure this is a great product but for me the taste is far too overwhelming to enjoy it. I tried the Banoffee flavour and at first I thought it was quite nice. But after a few shakes I can no longer stomach the taste. It's far too sweet and sickly. The smell when opening the pouch is bad enough alone. I bought a 2.5 kg pouch months ago and there's still more than half left. I just can't drink it. Milk makes it more bare able than water but it's still horrid.Goes Well With:Your nose pinched
Perfect for those wanting to gain weight while at the gym..I have so far gained 2lb in 3weeks although u do need to increase food intake too. Tastes great, real smooth when mixed in blender.
Excellent thank you . Getting through this bag well and looking forward to another favour !
I've started back playing rugby league recently and I found the training to be quite rigorous. I needed something to help with building my muscle up and aid a bit of recovery. I looked at the reviews for HXS and thought I'd give it a try. Been using it for almost a month and I have to say it's been fantastic for me. It's lessened my muscle fatigue and I'm seeing some slight improvements already. Mixes really well in the shaker. Some proteins in the past I've used have been really lumpy unless made in a blender, but this is great. Highly recommend it if you're in a contact sport!Goes Well With:Beta Alanine
This is not the first protein in my life but for the first time works so well. I noticed an increase in strength and muscle growth after just a few workouts. I recommend to all is an excellent product
Always been a fan of all-in-one supplements post workout. Hurricane is a relilable and cheap enough product compared to other branded all in one supplements. Has all vital ingredients, with good carbs/protein ratio. I find that to add more strength and size, hurricane extreme works better. But still an excellent product.Goes Well With:Water
I used to take Hurricane Evo, but My protein recently stopped making that therefore I have moved on to XS. A very similar formula with some small differences. I have tried the mint chocolate (which I highly recommend) and Almond which is nice too. I am never 100% sure how these proteins works. I an constantly getting stronger, fitter and leaner but that could be down to a number of things. In saying that if you are working at high intensity frequently then I can would recommend this, hasn't done me any harm!! Goes Well With:working hard +6 times a week! oh and milk!
thought i would try hurricane xs smooth chocolate after using normal whey impact smooth chocolate the taste is not the same at all too much sugar!!! half way through my first shake and thinking of sending back, don't know if im going to get through this 2.5kg bag :/ Goes Well With:water
This is the second time I have ordered this product as have had such fantastic results. My recovery is significantly improved allowing me to push harder in the gym. Have tried both chocolate mint and chocolate banana both are great with milk and water chocolate banana just pips chocolate mint as my favourite.
Haven't had this long enough to work out its effectiveness but tastes great.
Bargain protein for the money and has carbs for us hard gainers , creatine and hmb are an added bonus . Taste hmmmm I find it ok not brilliant but if we wanted a tasty shake we'd go to macdonalds and not bother with bodybuilding !!!! Not expecting miracles with any natural supplements but definitely feel a bit more bulky - creatine probably 😉 thanks Myprotein good productGoes Well With:Working out hard and a good diet lol
The fact that this is an all in one, containing all the essentials for gains is good, because buying individual products is time consuming and simple a hassle to use. Banana Flavour - mixes well with water when given a good standard shake. I use 2 level scoops with 250ml cold water and unscrew the lid and just down the shake. It tastes a lot better than other flavours I've tried before. The banana smell is fairly strong when you add the water so if you're not keen on bananas stay away! I myself, like bananas though 😊 Goes Well With:Cold water
5th or 6th time ordering. Always works well. Good mix, no lumps. Tastes good with milk, and better than most with water. Goes Well With:Big weights!
Ordered the Natural Banana flavour. Great taste and mixes well. Good value for money.
