CalNaturale Svelte Organic Protein Shakes are vegan and gluten-free and will provide you with the energy you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle in a delicious, filling, ready-to-drink shake. This is a review of the French Vanilla flavor.
The colors are eye catching and I’m down with the choice to put a phrase on the front (looking good) instead of an image of the product. The protein shake is just simply an off-white liquid, so it’s hard to make it look sexy on packaging! The top is also easy to twist and open. One of the things I like to look for is – does the product look like the packaging or like I expect – and it does.
✼ Taste & Texture
CalNaturale Svelte French Vanilla is thick, smooth going down and has just the right amount of vanilla flavoring. It borders on just a wee bit on too sweet for me, but nothing adding a little water won’t fix – so no real complaints here. I tend to drink this by itself, after workouts or add some to a green smoothie to thicken it up. It’s also pretty satisfying as a breakfast replacement. Sometimes It’s also the perfect afternoon snack replacement too.
✼ Serving Size and Nutritionals
One 11 ounce box of CalNaturale Svelte French Vanilla Organic Protein Shake is a serving, which provides 180 calories, 7 grams of total fat (11% of the daily value), 6 grams of sugars, 5 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein. That’s an excellent source of protein and fiber as well as low in sugar. There ingredients list is [available here]. The fiber comes from the added inulin, and there’s no artificial sweeteners in it.
✼ Price / Worth It?
I purchased a 4-pack of CalNaturale Svelte French Vanilla Organic Protein Shake from Walmart for $2.69. It was absolutely worth it!
