Spiru-Tein Energy Meal - Chocolate
Works for me...and maybe for you
I'm a morning person and like to get my exercising over with early in the day. The problem is, my body needs "fuel" before I go to the gym, but I can't face fixing/eating "real" food right after I get up. The solution I've come up with is a chocolate shake (aka high energy protein meal). For variety, I flavor it with coconut, peppermint, or almond extract. [It tastes so good that I often have a glass even when I'm NOT going to the gym.]
The brand/size can I use retails for ~ $39 here (high cost of living in Paradise), but I order it online from Swanson (often using a discount code) for ~$33, which INCLUDES shipping to Hawaii. What a deal!

I love Spirutein! It's a great high protein meal for my teenage daughters when they're hungry and need something in a hurry!

Rice milk & a bullet blender is the trick
I love this product!! Choclate or Vanilla mainly.
The trick is rice milk and a blender for the best taste. I like Rice Dream Vanilla, or Chocolate for a richer flavor; soy and other milks seem to be a bit heavy for me.
Makes it a breakfast and/or lunch shake with a multivitamin - Spiru-tein is loaded with the good stuff and you don't have take pills :) Plus it's yummy!

I use this in a shake most mornings and love it. I highly recommend the vanilla and chocolate. My mom loves the Cherries Jubilee, but I think it taste fake, and the Cappuccino was so terrible we dumped it, and we hate tossing food.
My only complaint is that the scoop is buried sometimes, so I've started hanging onto my old one until I've found the new one.

Can't live without it
I have been drinking a spirutein shake every morning for the past 17 years or so. On the rare days i skip it i get tired in the afternoon. Good taste, the chocolate is my favorite. A great supplement especially if you are vegetarian and concerned about getting enough protein.

Spiru-Tein Energy Meal is Great
I used to buy this product at the local health store for more. Swanson's pricing is very competitive. I use this product to supplement my overall health regime. This product provides the protein, vitamins, and minerals I need to keep going!

Very good product!
My son and I love this! Tastes great, but doesn't mix completely with a spoon, although my son does not mind. I use it in shakes in a blender. Has all the vitamins you need as well as extra protein all in one great product. We always have this one in the house, and can't find a better price than at Swanson!

Perfect for Busy People
I use this every morning, and I really notice if I skip it. The only downside is that it is a bit clumpy if you don't use really cold liquid with it (I use milk), and you have to stir it fast and vigorously. I think a shaker would be good, just haven't bothered to try that. It is easy on my stomach, and I feel satisfied after a tall glass for several hours after. It has become an important part of my morning regime. The price is the cheapest I have found, even with Amazon Prime.

Best stuff out there
I have been using this product for voer 8 years now. I have tried multiple flavors and I have to say the chocolate and the vanilla flavors are the best. I drink it plan with almond milk, add it to a smoothie, and even stir it into my oatmeal. Wonderful product.

Quick breakfast or snack
My husband and I drink this for breakfast 5 out of 7 days a week with almond milk. It tastes great! I add a scoop of a green food powder and a tablespoon of liquid chlorophyll. Mixes easily in a shaker bottle that has the removable plastic screen. This is the best price I've seen.

I buy this for my children. They actually ask for it! This is a quick breakfast or snack. The nutritional value is amazing!

Sooo good and effective!
I love this meal replacement powder. It tastes so good and really satisfies my hunger. I love to have it every morning blended with a cup of frozen strawberries and some spinach. Delish! And so excited it's gluten-free!

Tastes great, easy to make. I've been drinking it every day for years. Just mix it in a plastic container and shake it for 20 seconds, you don't even need a blender.

Mixed thoroughly in a shaker or blender, this powder produces THE best tasting shake. High in protein, but not high in sugar. Great (healthy) way to get a chocolate fix!

WONDERFUL chocolate shake!
I read the review submitted below about the product being clumpy and bad, and felt compelled to write a review. The smoothies/shakes of this line are only lumpy if you think you can just stir it with a spoon. I use my magic bullet blender, and that works PERFECTLY! Yes, it will turn out lumpy if you use a spoon because of the types of proteins in the shake. It is not whey. It is soy, pea protein, and rice protein. However, the shake is WONDERFUL and not overpoweringly chocolatey. if you want a more chocolate flavor, add some Swanson's Organic Cocoa Powder. That's what I plan to try next. Right now I mix it with milk, peanut butter, and oats, and it's downright amazing! If you get an all-natural smooth peanut butter, it doesn't come out thick, but really silky and delcious!

DIdn't like product
Good company, bad product. Very clumpy, hard to stir in and very thick, not good tasting. Will not buy this again. It does have three proteins though which is nice and hard to find, maybe that's why it is thick and clumpy. So if you need the proteins, plug your nose and drink away~
