Click Protein Drink Review

I have another company I thought everyone would be interested in and that company is Click Expresso Protein Drink.

This is a protein drink made with expresso and comes in two flavors, mocha and vanilla, which I got to sample both flavors.

Here is what is in each drink that you make:

1. Double Shot Express Coffee
2. 15 grams of lasting Protein
3. 23 Vitamins & Minerals
4. Low in Sugar & Calories

We tried the Mocha Flavor first and I really loved this one the best as I am more of a chocolate fan when it comes to what I add in my coffee drinks whether I am making them at home or buying from a coffee vendor. I tend to gravitate towards mocha most of the time. This is real easy to make. They can provide you with the shaker for $7.95 also when you order.

It is normally 2 scoops of Click and you fill the shaker with water up to the line that is on the shaker. Then shake for 30-60 seconds or you can even make this a hot beverage by microwaving for 60 seconds (make sure you shake it up before putting in the microwave)! Then remove from microwave and stir then put back in and heat another 45 seconds or to whatever temp you best like your coffee drink to be.

For your information if you get the sample packet that is one whole serving. At first I thought it said to take 2 scoops or spoons and it was too watery so then I added the whole sample packet and it turned out fine! Another thing I did (on my own) was put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes to make it like a slushy type of drink! It came out really good!

The other flavor we tried was the Vanilla Latte and that was hubby's favorite. He pretty much sticks to that flavor or hazelnut. He does love chocolate, just not in his coffee. I like Vanilla too, but, only on occasion. I will do mocha over vanilla any day. Whichever flavor you opt for, both are good and if you are into Protein Drinks for dieting reasons or healthy reasons this is another way to get your daily requirements.

I found out when I was looking around their website that they have the Original Click and the All Natural Click and here is the difference and I am quoting from their website:

All CLICK products are naturally flavored, colored, gluten-free and CLICK’s high quality protein is made from cows that are NOT treated with the rBST. The difference between CLICK original and CLICK all-natural is the zero-calorie sweetener. CLICK original is sweetened with fructose (about 4 grams) and a very small amount of sucralose (e.g. Splenda). For people who are sensitive to sucralose, CLICK all-natural uses a stevia, lo han blend. All other nutrition facts remain the same.

“From the 15 grams of casein protein to the 23 vitamins and minerals packed into each serving, we have always been proud of what goes into making CLICK,” according to company co-founder Greg Smith. “New, All-Natural CLICK, featuring a unique blend of natural sweeteners, allows us to reach individuals who only buy natural products. That means we will be helping even more people stay energized, get their vitamins, burn fat and enjoy a delicious treat. It is hard not to be proud of that.”

Much like the classic CLICK formulations, All-Natural CLICK fuels body for fat burning with 15 grams of protein per serving. Recent studies suggest that, when combined with an active lifestyle, a diet high in protein promotes natural weight loss by curbing the appetite and reducing calorie intake. Diets high in protein may also help reduce blood fat levels and maintain lean tissue. Now a healthy, natural weight loss solution is just a CLICK away.

You can buy their flavors in Canisters that are 16 oz., Single serve packets of 12 or like the ones I got which is one serving in the sample packet. You can also get their shakers if you don't have anything at home to shake it with or just want their shaker because it has a steel ball in it that helps distribute the powder while shaking and it has a top with a pop up lid so you can drink right out of the shaker so you can take it with you or pour it into your own glass at home.

They are also offering everyone a buy one get one free offer on their BOGO page. I hope you take the opportunity to try these wonderful shakes, especially if you are already drinking protein shakes and love coffee, you get both all in one!

I also found out that Vitamin Shoppe is offering samplings all over the country so go check out this site and see if one near you is offering to let you sample them before you buy.

They also have their own clothing gear you can order! Then I found the recipe section on their site with all kinds of great sounding recipes to try to add some variety to just drinking it out of the cup right after making it.

Check them out on Facebook and "Like" them.

They are in the midst of trying to get more fans out there to spread the word about Click!

Now, for my favorite part, the history section! I know, I know, but don't you want to know who they are and what possessed them to start up a company called Click? I am so I make it my mission to educate others so that they get inspired with their own ideas. Shoot, I might be grooming the next millionaire!

Here is what I found:

We first owned a small chain of women’s fitness centers in California. We were seeking a delicious, healthy beverage for our members in response to the growing wall of sugar based energy and coffee-house drinks on the market. Our simple solution – a delicious, all-in-one, espresso coffee, protein drink – that makes you feel that you are doing something good for yourself one cup at a time.

“The innovative idea of combining espresso and protein into a gourmet tasting healthy energy drink just CLICKed one day,” says Greg Smith, Founder of CLICKco LLC. “At our fitness center, we were educating our members on the weight managment and health value of protein but what they were still craving was their gourmet coffee or energy drink. The idea behind CLICK was to provide the indulgence and energy consumers crave in a beverage that not only tastes good but is good for you.”

CLICKco LLC located in Clovis, CA strives to be an ethical company providing premium all-in-one beverages to enhance those seeking healthier lifestyles.

As a small entreprenurial company with big plans, we encourage you to contact us and to let us know what you think. Also, please be sure to “Like” us on Facebook to help spread the word about CLICK ~ the Coffee Lovers Protein Drink!

May Your Day CLICK!

I am not a breakfast eater--but am a coffee drinker!! This sounds like I might even be able to drink this in the morning and get what I actually need to begin my day!
