Quest Peanut Butter Protein Powder

2015/02/img_8228.jpg

I am so impressed by Quest recently, and everything that they are creating. This powder is amazing. I always try to avoid artificial sweeteners and look for products with only all natural ingredients. Well, Quest did just that. Their new line of powders has no sugar added (less than 1g of sugar per serving, are gluten free, and they bake well! The peanut butter protein has a fantastic, vibrant flavor that your tastes buds will love (especially if you are a peanut butter lover like me). The first time using the powder, I used it in my “Fluffy Protein Pancake” recipe and it worked very well. The flavor of the powder added a great taste to the pancakes; I even enjoyed eating the pancakes plain. The powder has a really smooth texture and is all around a great product. The macros are amazing, with 110 calories, 1g of fat, 2 g carbs, and 23 g protein. I most definitely recommend this product!

Krush Protein Bar Reviews

IMG_2604.JPG

Mint Chocolate Chip Krush Bar:
Mint and chocolate is one of my favorite combinations, so I was so excited to try this bar. The mint base of the bar has a very good level of mint flavoring. The base has a lovely smooth and tender texture that is easy to chew and delightful. The bar has an added texture and flavor of the chocolate chips. The chocolate chips add a great finishing touch to the bar with a great texture and flavor. My only criticism is that i wish there were more chocolate chips in the bar. The macros are fantastic (240 Calories, 9 g Fat, 24 g Carb, 20 g Protein). This bar is pretty large and is so satisfying. The bar is all natural, with no artificial sweeteners and very limited ingredients!

Baked Apple Pie Krush Bar:
I am a very big fan of Apple pie, especially when it comes to thanksgiving, and this bar came just in time! The bar as a great base that is tender, smooth, and easy to chew. The flavor of the base tastes like the spiced crust of the apple pie. The bar has a great added texture of the apple chunks, that finished off the bar’s flavor. With the combination of the spiced crust base with the apple chunks this bar really does taste like a baked apple pie, especially when the bar is baked in the oven at 400 degrees F for about 4 minutes! The macros are wonderful (245 Calories, 8 g Fat, 24 g Carbohydrates, 20 g Protein). This bar is pretty large and is so satisfying. The bar is all natural, with no artificial sweeteners and very limited ingredients!
