I recently discovered Olly during my extensive research of plant-based protein shakes. I would go to Whole Foods, Target, and nutrition stores in search of sample packets during my testing period. I was really impressed with the diverse amount of products out there that are actually nutritious, tasty and plant-based. There were products made from pea, hemp, nut, brown rice, pumpkin, soy protein. I wanted to write about Olly because I was most impressed with the taste of this particular product. I normally love chocolate flavored protein shakes but the sample package at Target was only vanilla flavored. Those that know me know that I love the scent of vanilla but when it comes to taste, I am 100% a chocolate girl.
I tried my vanilla flavored sample with my unflavored nut protein milk and the taste amazing. It was smooth and easy to swallow and very enjoyable. I was really excited because a lot of the products I had tried were really good for you but hard to swallow or the reverse. This one was a little bit of both nutritious and delicious. So, I went to Target and purchased myself the full 23.7 oz bottle with chocolate flavoring. This Nourishing Smoothie Balanced Protein Blend contains 170 calories, 18 grams of protein, 25% of our daily recommended vitamin nutrients, 5 grams of fiber and 160 mg of omega-3s. The plant protein blend is made with pea protein, golden chlorella, and flax. The whole food fiber comes from a multi-source blend of apple, cassava root and flax and their vitamins are sourced from 12 organic fruits and vegetables.
I really have to say that this is my current go-to protein shake because for me, it really tastes amazing. I look forward to finishing my workouts and drinking my shake. I can vouch and say that both the vanilla and chocolate flavors won’t disappoint but if you are a strawberry lover…they have one for you too. Let me know your thoughts on this product and if you love it as much as I do. I have a feeling that if you like or are searching for plant-based shakes, you are going to be as addicted as I am to this product.
