Recently, I ordered some Quest Bars directly from the Quest website. They were running a promotion where I got free samples for their protein powders to go with my Quest Bar purchase. SWEET! I was given several different flavors to try. Here is some information (as well as my thoughts) on the Quest Protein Shakes.
Before I get into the review itself, I’m not going to really compare this to Shakeology. This is a protein powder, which is different (check out my article explaining the difference between protein shakes and meal replacement shakes). This powder is not intended to replace a full meal. However, if you add some nutrients to is (such as fruit or kale), you could make it to replace a meal.
In this picture you will find the nutrition label for the Peanut Butter Protein Powder:
My biggest complaint with the nutrition of this shake is the inclusion of Sucralose as it is an artificial sweetener. I do appreciate that it is the lowest ingredient on the list, but it would be nice to see the Quest company remove this in the future and continue towards putting more natural ingredients into their shakes.
Type of Protein: Whey protein is used in their products. Quest does NOT carry vegan flavors.
Is it Gluten-Free? YES!!!!! All of Quest’s products are made in a gluten-free facility.
I have to tell you, this is one of the more delicious shakes I’ve had in a long time. My husband, who is not a fan of shakes in general, loves these shakes. (Maybe it’s because he misses ice cream? He’s staying strong!). The texture of the shake itself is very smooth. I have been making my shakes with unsweetened almond milk and ice, and skipping the banana. It is still sweet enough to taste like a frothy milkshake!
Their current list of flavors:
- Cookies and Cream
- Salted Caramel
- Banana Cream
- Chocolate Milkshake
- Vanilla Milkshake
- Peanut Butter
- Strawberries and Cream
- Multi-purpose (plain flavored, would be great for baking!)
Can I use this with the 21 Day Fix?
Of course you can! I would do 1 1/2 scoops to equal one red container.
Where to buy:
You could buy these on Amazon, however the prices really vary between flavors. If you order directly from the Quest website, you can also pick options of buying single packets, so you can try whatever flavors you’d like before committing to an entire canister.
