There are not many times that I do a review for a product that I have recently fell in love with. For the most part, I have my staples and I rarely fluctuate from certain brands, but every once in a while, I receive a wake up call and I am reminded of how little I know. Such was the case with the Snickerdoodle flavor from the PES Select Protein line. This is just one of the reasons that I love bodybuilding. You never stop learning and re-learning what you already have learned.
PES Select Protein is a mix of whey and casein protein giving you the advantage of the faster-acting whey protein and the longer lasting trickle effect of casein protein. Using PES Select Protein is a way of getting the best of both worlds. You get that quick punch that you like pre and post-workout as well as the advantage of the trickling of protein to last longer.
PES Select Protein Flavor:
Before I go any further, I have to get this out of the way. I normally do not care what a product tastes like if it works. Its effectiveness is what we take a supplement for, but having a nice flavor is just icing on the cake. There is no denying that the Snickerdoodle flavor of PES Select Protein is simply phenomenal. It’s scary good. Whether you mix it with water, milk, almond milk, etc., the taste is unbelievably good. My preferred mixture is my typical post-workout shake which includes 1 cup of almond milk, a few cups of ice and 2 scoops of protein powder (among my typical BCAAs, creatine, beta-alanine, glutamine). Normally, I work out and drink my shake. With PES Select Protein Snickerdoodle, I am eagerly looking forward to my post-workout shake. It felt like I was even pushing harder during the workout to earn my post-workout treat.
PES Select Protein Effectiveness:
As far as PES Select Protein’s effectiveness, I would put it up there with any of my favorites (if not even above them). Since the post-workout shake was more enjoyable, it went down faster, which assisted the recovery period immensely.
PES Select Protein Mixability:
PES Select Protein mixes smooth and easily whether in a blender or a shaker bottle. The shake comes out well balanced and smooth.
PES Select Protein Nutrition Profile:
Each flavor or PES Select Protein contains an amazing profile with 1 gram or less of total carbohydrates and sugars and 1.5 grams of fats. Two of the three flavors also have no saturated fats.
Whey + Casein Protein:
The synergistic blend of whey & casein protein gives you both a quick influx and a long lasting trickle of amino acids.
Leucine is a key determinant in how much protein synthesis your muscle can achieve after a workout.
Delivers a trifecta of muscle-targeted ingredients geared to stimulate and sustain muscle protein synthesis.
Premium Proteins. Leucine Peptides. Amazing Flavoring. No dirty protein tricks, no added creamers, and no cheap fillers. Just pure perfection.
24g of protein, 1g of carbs and 1.5g of fat per serving
I cannot recommend PES Select Protein enough. It has the profile that we are all looking for in a protein powder with the without the extras that we do not want.
