Product: Spiru-tein Simply Natural Chocolate Unsweetened Protein Powder

For nutrition info, click on the title above. This product is from Nature's Plus, same as the Keto slim protein powder. I mixed this as I did with the Keto, crushed ice and water to make about 10 oz. in my "bullet" blender. It is unsweetened and after tasting I added about 1/4 tsp of Sweetleaf Stevia. It was still not as sweet as the Keto shake and, unlike the Keto vanilla shake, seemed a bit watered down. Package directions called for 8 oz of liquid, same as Keto, but Keto tasted great and had a rich texture, even with the extra water. Next time I will stick to the 8 oz and see if that makes a difference. If you like it sweet, you will want to add more than the 1/4 tsp stevia. This product also had 5 g of carb so is right on the border of being one of your carbs for the day. This was much lower in protein than the Keto (23 to 14).

Pros: cost, unsweetened so you can add your choice, 1 g fiber
Cons: not as rich and flavorful as Keto vanilla, lower protein, higher carb grams
Cost: $1.19 for single serving envelope
S/C: 0/1
