Coffee is my friend, so when I was given the opportunity through Sweat Pink to try CLICK Active, a protein mix that has coffee in it, I was was excited. Although I received the product for review, all opinions are my own.
Coffee and Protein—was it too good to be true? I start most mornings with a protein shake. Sometimes I add cold coffee to my shakes to give myself a little boost. So how much coffee are we talking about? According to their website, CLICK has “150 mg of caffeine from pure, premium espresso coffee to boost alertness, improve performance and decrease recovery time. Natural caffeine from real coffee, not synthetic caffeine or added coffee flavor.”
When I received the canister of CLICK, it also came with a shaker bottle. Although I have a few of these, I was excited for the purple color of the shaker bottle. (Purple is my jam!). The canister lists three different ways to prepare the powder and I decided to try all three.
Using the shaker bottle, I added some water, ice and my measured out the CLICK using the scoop in the canister. I was pleasantly surprised at how fine the powder is—it dissolved nicely and didn’t clump to the bottom as I drank it. The taste was good, not overly coffee nor overly mocha. Some protein mixes have a chalky taste and this did not. I typically don’t like protein mixes in the shaken form but have had it three times this week served this way. So easy and so good- perfect for those mornings when you're in a hurry!
Because there is coffee in the mix, it makes sense that you could drink this hot. In order to fairly give my opinion, I decided to try it this way too. After heating up some water and adding the CLICK, it was a go. It was okay, but in all honesty, this was my least favorite way to drink the CLICK. That being said, I am not a huge fan of hot coffee and very seldom drink it.
The final way that you can prepare the CLICK is to blend it. The first time I blended it, I just used some ice and water—it reminded me of a blending drink from a local coffee shop. Yum! The next couple of times I switched it up, adding frozen fruit and such. My favorite way was with a frozen banana and a little bit of peanut butter. So delicious!
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with CLICK Active. It doesn’t have that power/chalky taste that many protein mixes do. I’ve been drinking it everyday for almost two weeks and I’ve noticed that I haven’t been having my daily coffee. The CLICK is giving me the right amount of boost that I need.
Are you a coffee drinker? If not, how do you get that extra boost?
Until next time, happy running.
