Arbonne Protein REVIEWED





“Do the daily shake with delicious, nutritious perfectly balanced chocolate or vanilla shake mix. Provides 20 grams of vegan protein, plus more than 20 essential vitamins and minerals per serving, delivering a 100% amino acid score. Clinically tested and certified to have a low glycemic index, which has little effect on blood sugar levels and does not cause a spike in blood sugar.





Allot of people seem to be selling Arbonne products at the minute, seems like the new Avon. But what is the protein powder like? From a number of Arbonne reps, I keep being told this product is being tested via informed sport and is being pushed to be used in football. That is not the case!   


However if you’re like me, I like to try you shake and products. So let’s give it ago!

Arbonne – Mix ability
270mls of water and two scoops of protein powder and shake. I was actual surprised at how effortlessly this mixed together. Just a couple of shakes and done. The shake is very thick, so I opted to add more water – 300mls – 320mls.

Arbonne – Taste
I have tried both the Vanilla and Chocolate flavours. I didn’t like the Vanilla flavour at all! This was from the premixed cartons and not sure if the powdered protein will taste different.
The Chocolate flavour was really nice, I have a sweet tooth and this was perfect! The first time you try this product, it leaves a funny taste but second and third and so one are fab!

Arbonne – Effectiveness
Taking once a day for breakfast. I do feel like I have more energy and ready to attack the day.

My thoughts:
I love the ingredients / vitamin included within this product. However depending on what you’re doing in the gym, this may not be the product for you!  I would prefer a protein powder with a higher concentration of protein and a little lower carbs. Very high in sugar so not the best if you’re shedding. If you are looking to buy this product, mix it with Milk to increase the protein you intake! Mixing with approx 300ml of skimmed Milk will add an extra 10g of protein.
