As some of you may know I am trying my best to be healthy and possibly lose some weight before my sister’s wedding in October. When I was approached by the lovely guys at Upbeat to review their new fruit dairy protein drinks, I jumped at the chance. Not going to lie to you here but when I heard High Protein I was a bit scared and wanted to run a mile (especially with my anxiety of trying new things!) but I thought I would give them a chance and see what I thought of them.
I have been so used to making up smoothies and milkshakes for the past couple of weeks that it was nice to have something which I could just go and buy from Holland & Barrett or Tesco. I have been paying close attention to all the other similar products on the market and they all have really high sugar content which I never really noticed. The good thing about Upbeat is that they only have 2g of sugar in them, straight in the basket from my eyes.
Here’s what they say: “Upbeat is a delicious dairy protein drink that helps set you up for the day – perfect for busy people on the go.”
As far as I am aware there are three flavours to choose from; Strawberry, Mango with Passion Fruit and Blueberry with Raspberry. They are all delicious but I definitely think the Blueberry and Raspberry one is my favourite. I currently have a week’s worth in the fridge. Think of the Activia pouring yogurts, well they are better tasting and more healthier than that. They are perfect for snacking on or for a on the go healthy breakfast. The consistency isn’t too thick or thin which is brilliant for fussy eaters.
Upbeat is available from Tescos, Waitrose, Holland and Barrett and Ocado. Their extremely cute and attractive website will help you find a stockist near you as well. I managed to get a few 50p off coupons so if you’re interested in trying one then let me know in the comments below. I will be picking the first five people who comment first. (You must be following my blog, not just for the competition!)
Have you tried Upbeat before? What’s your opinion?
