Svelte Protein Drinks Giveaway

I am so excited to tell you about this next giveaway, because these drinks are over the top delicious! We are giving away a case (12 bottles) to one lucky winner, and a sample pack (4 bottles) to 2 runners up!!

The wonderful people at CalNaturale contacted me to see if I was interested in trying their organic soy protein drinks. Can I tell you just how happy I was that they contacted me? I am addicted to the chocolate, and cappuccino flavors now and can't wait for the stores up here to start carrying them.

A 15.9 oz container is not only cute, but it's loaded with 16g of good for you organic soy protein. It is also packed with 8g of fiber, and only 9g of sugar! So many bottled protein drinks out there are loaded with 2-4 times that in sugar per serving (no thank you!) The container is 260 calories and 10g of fat, 1.5g saturated. I was kinda wishing the fat wasn't so high, but the taste was so amazing I stopped thinking about it after the second sip.

These drinks have a nice thickness to them, it's not like you are drinking flavored water with a little something mixed in. Cappuccino is a hard flavor to get right, a lot of drinks end up tasting like fake coffee or leave you with a medicinal aftertaste. Not at all the case with svelte, it was perfect. Same goes for the chocolate flavor, no fake, syrupy sticky sweet, just real, good, chocolate. The french vanilla didn't seem as thick as the other flavors, not sure why but I kinda wish it was a little thicker. As for the chai... I've never been a fan of the flavor... in anything, so I had a friend who does like chai try it and she thought the flavor was great!

Other uses I discovered: Add some into your coffee instead of creamer, it's delicious!

UPDATE FYI: A commenter who's opinion I highly value mentioned that she didn't like how sweet these were due to the stevia used, and also felt they were bitter due to the stevia. I would have to personally disagree though, I've tried stevia sweetened sodas and hated the stevia bitterness, but I didn't taste anything like that in these. It really is up to your taste buds and for me I love these things :) and still highly recommend you trying them!

I'm always a chocolate person first. But spiced chai would come second in the line of "yum, let me try all these drinks today."

MKTRAT said...

I had never heard of these until you posted. Thank You So Much!! They all look really tasty.....I'll have to try them all!

Valerie said...

mmmmm can't decide between chocolate and french vanilla. let's say...vanil - no, cho - no, ok, vanilla it is!

Mercedes said...

Mmmm the Chai would probably be first choice, followed closely by the french vanilla. I'll have to see if these are sold anywhere around me!

Kara Hadley said...

I don't like chai either and I already have chocolate protein powder, so french vanilla it is.
I've seen these but never investigated further so I didn't even realize that they were soy-based. Hip hip hooray!

Neena said...

I would love to try the Chai, although the Vanilla sounds delicious too!

katie said...

Cassidy said...

Yum. I was just looking for something that had soy instead of whey. I think that Chocolate would be first choice, but I want to try them all!

Hannah said...

I have tried these, and unfortunately, I really, seriously disliked them. All I could taste was the stevia, which is very unusual to me. They just struck me as both entirely bitter and sickeningly sweet. And I wanted so badly to like them! I sure wish the stevia thing didn't bother me so much.

Megan said...

Chocolate would be my fave : )

Anna said...

mmm...definitely chocolate with the cappuccino as a close second. I love packaging that comes with compliments :D

Tracy said...

When recovering from an illness, your body needs more protein to build muscle lost during his illness. The reason is when you are sick is not able to digest and absorb food proteins in the same way you do when you are healthy. Although not absorb sufficient amounts of protein that the body will not stop functions. These are the features you need to sustain life. The fabrics are used for this process are constructed and are getting lower. The benefits of protein drinks for one person in this state are immense. He will be able to absorb protein faster and rebuild body tissues used.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Svelte, especially the cappuccino flavor. I had gastric bypass surgery three years ago, so need extra protein. Soy usually doesn't like me much, but these sit just fine and taste wonderful!!! I can't praise them high enough.
