I recently wrote about a goat milk protein that a reader had asked me about called Mt. Capra Double-Bonded Protein.
Well, based on that little piece that I wrote the clinical nutrition scientist, Joe, from Mt. Capra Wholefoods Nutritionals contacted me. Joe sent me a bottle to try and give a real review of the product.
It took me a while to get around to it, but I have finally tried the protein in a few ways to give it a test.
First off I will say a few things that I like about the production of the product. It is an excellent blend of whey and casein (since it is casein from non-cow’s milk it is less problematic). It also does not contain sucralose (Splenda) or any other artificial sweeteners, as it uses stevia.
The first time I tried the protein was simply by itself in some unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I shook it up and gave it a shot. I am not going to lie, I didn’t love it. It did not mix that well, and was a little clumpy, which really decreased its palatability.
So I put it back on the shelf and didn’t give it a second shot until a week or so later. This time I tried it in my Chocolate Cherry Bliss smoothie recipe, and I must say, I was absolutely floored by how amazing it tasted. In all honesty, I think it was my best version of that smoothie ever, and I drink that nearly every day!
Blending that protein made it nice and smooth, and it really thickened the smoothie and made it extra delicious. So while I can’t say I loved it as a stand-alone protein, in my smoothie recipes, I would say it can’t be beat!
For those of you looking for something different, trying to avoid artificial sweeteners, or intolerant to cow’s milk, give it a shot!
On a final note, for those of you looking for the RSS feeder, I did not set it up on my new site. Instead in the very near future I am going to set up a FREE weekly newsletter, which once you sign up for will update you on all of my blog posts, news and interesting tidbits. Rather than be redundant, I figured that would work best for everybody.
Have a great weekend!
