We were recently invited to try out some new Blueberry and Raspberry Upbeat Protein drinks.
What is it?
The new addition, which was voted for by Upbeat’s Facebook fans, is not only flavoursome, it also contains high quality protein which keeps skin and hair looking healthy, perfect for those looking for that summer glow. Protein, as the most filling of foods, is especially important in the morning as it helps set on-the-go people up for the day. And don’t worry..Upbeat won’t make you look like a body builder, though it will help you to resist that mid-morning doughnut!
Low in fat, containing just 150 calories and with half the sugar found in most fruit juices and smoothies, Upbeat is a great option for the health conscious at a time when unhealthy snacking remains high on people’s agenda as they look to get in shape
We really enjoyed sampling them. My other half is always looking for ways to increase his protein intake and I don’t take anywhere near as much interest in my own so it’s really handy to be able to get such a large portion (20g) all in one go. My 3year old also loves them which is great as I find if she has more protein throughout the day that it really helps with her sleep at night.
If you see them whilst on your supermarket shop I highly recommend you give them a whirl. We have also tried out the strawberry which is pretty tasty too.
Blueberry & Raspberry Upbeat is available from Tesco and Holland and Barrett from mid July. Existing flavours of Upbeat are also available from Waitrose, WHSmiths Travel, Ocado and selected petrol stations, RRP £1.79 for a 250ml bottle.
