    Thumbs up Chocolate Covered Banana Whey Smooth - Blue Star Nutraceuticals

    BIG Shout out to Gym God and Blue Star for sending me this protein to review.



    ^1 scoop mixed with 1 cup of skim milk,5 shakes up and down
    1st impression: great packaging! Really flashy, yet clean and attractive (to me anyways), Not only that, but even After shipping, the scoop was on the top; and we all know that means its going to be great!

    * I separate fast and flavour because some people may not particularly like the taste, despite it being quite accurate.
    *


    Ingredients/Quality: 9/10
    150cals/ 36g scoop: 27P, 4C (1fiber, 1 sugar), 2F

    Ingredients: Cold Processed Protein Blend (Whey Protein Concentrate, Whey Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Hydrolysate, Micellar Casseinate, Egg White Protein Powder), Cocoa Powder, Inulin, Amino Acid Blend [L-Glutamine, BCAA (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine)], Natural and Artificial Flavors, Acesulfame Potassium, Sucrolose, Enzyme Blend (Protease, Lactase), Salt.

    I weighed out 1 scoop and it was exact! Not that a few grams matters to myself, it is just nice to see consistency.


    Flavour: 9/10
    Flavour: Chocolate Covered Banana. Upon opening the tub a strong aroma of banana hit me. To me, it tasted like one of those banana marshmallow candy (if you know those)/banana medicine flavour covered in chocolate. Neither flavour (chocolate or banana) in general seem to over power the other, a nice balance. With such a unique flavour, it is crucial to justify.

    Taste: 9/10
    As someone who does not particularly enjoy fruit flavoured protein powders (mainly because I don't enjoy the tub after ~10 scoops, and it is not something I want as a stand alone flavour) I rather enjoy this every time I drink it!

    Mixability: 9/10

    With just a few shakes of a shaker there is no clumping with water, and minimal when mixed with milk (but that is due to the milk, as we all know it sticks to the cup sides by itself). I personally enjoy a bit of a thicker shake (blends) so this is the one of the few downsides for myself. It mixes so well, it is like flavoured water (when mixed with water that is).

    Price: 6/10
    Here is the main kicker for me, Price is fairly expensive for protein powder, but that is going to be expected when you get a quality product. I do believe that the benefits out way that cost if you can afford it. Especially for such a unique flavour!

    Overall: 8/10

    Overall great product, flavour is true to its label; no clumping with water, minimal with milk (due to the milk); down side is the price. Great company from my experience (I mean, who gives away 4lb tubs just for a simple review?, not to mention I got my product on the 2nd business day (sent domestic priority) and offered full tracking all for a company promotion! If you can afford it, I say give it a go!

    Appreciate you posting a full review. Understand the consideration with cost, but quality comes at a price... and you only cry once.

    And then get to drink 4 pounds of delicious CCB.

    And I appreciate the opportunity to try it. I'm a university student putting myself through, so I probably wouldnt have forked out the cash to try it. I mean now that I have tried one flavour of the Whey-smooth line, I can honestly recommend it, as well as seeing myself actually paying for it. I do agree that quality isn't cheap, but either is university haha

    Not to mention I love helping out a Canadian Company (From Peterborough, School in Ottawa currently)

    Nice work dude and we appreciate the support. Whey Smooth is certainly expensive for a Canadian purchasing through Bodybuilding.com. I would certainly suggest to take a look at your domestic options.

    Chocolate Covered Banana Pancakes - topped with Banana, Greek yogurt and Melted chocolate
    Batter
    - 60g Cake and Pastry Flour (all I had)
    - 30g All Purpose Flour
    - 68g Complete Buttermilk Pancake Mix
    - 2tsp baking powder
    - 3g Splenda
    - 1 scoop (36g) Chocolate Covered Banana Protein powder
    - 11g Chocolate Fudge SF/FF Jello pudding mix
    - 1 egg (separated)
    - 1 egg white
    - 1 cup + 2TBSP Skim Milk
    Topping
    - 1 banana sliced (~112g)
    - 70g FF Greek yogurt
    - 3tsp (14g) melted chocolate "Banana Pop"

    1. combine all dry ingredients together
    2. Combine milk and separated egg yolk, whisk thoroughly (I like it bubbly and lighter)
    3. beat the 2 egg whites in a separate bowl until stiffened
    4. combine milk mixture with dry ingredients (lightly fold, DON'T over mix) - will be very thick from pudding mix
    5. GENTLY fold in the stiffened egg whites
    6. pour batter on lightly greased skillet
    7. flip when bubbles start to appear. --> I only cook them ~2/3, then finish in the oven @300F because I can only fit 6 on skillet
    8. repeat steps 6+7 until all batter is gone
    9. Plate it, add toppings as pleased

    Total Macros: ~1170 cals; 70p/185c/20f
    ** simple substitutions to cut down cals = almond/cashew milk, SF/FF chocolate sauce, use less banana... or just not have as big of an appetite as me
    - needs Glycodrive for these haha
    - unfortunately I overcooked them a little due to waiting for the chocolate to melt... next time!

    Thanks, I don't tend to make too many low cal options, mainly because I find they typically taste inferior, and frankly I am bulking with a higher metabolism lol...

    These would have been better if I had used a premium dark chocolate drizzle, but I found this cheap chocolate sauce (supposed to be for making frozen chocolate banana pops) so I thought I would use it up!
