CLICK Espresso Protein Drink - Review & Giveaway

I was blessed with the twins. Not for the obvious reasons, but as far as sleep went. They were not bad sleepers, only woke to eat and get a diaper change and usually went right back to sleep. Merasia had some sleep problems around 18-20 months old, and I was very pregnant with Mason. So pregnant in fact, that end of pregnancy exhaustion was setting in and being up all night her screaming or trying to get room in my own bed for a few hours of sleep with her hogging all the space left me overly exhausted during the day. Fast forward to the birth of Mason. Our first night home, he never went to sleep until 7 a.m. the next morning. The second night home, he nursed for 6 hours straight. I was a zombie! My regular coffee just was not doing it for me. Where was CLICK Espresso Protein Drink then, when I needed it more then ever?? I wish I would have found this company sooner!

From their website:

"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 CLICK line of espresso protein drinks, featuring mocha and vanilla latte, are designed to help curb food cravings, give a boost of energy, and support the body before and after workouts.

With two shots of espresso and plenty of protein in every glass, CLICK provides an energy lift that comes on quickly and lasts all day without the jitters and empty calories associated with sugary, canned energy drinks."

For my review, I was sent two CLICK espresso protein drink mixes, a blender ball, and shaker cup.

I tried the Mocha flavor first. I think I tried it on the morning after a very very rough night with Mason, so I was definitely in need of that extra lift, and figured this would definitely show me the full effect of these drinks if I tried it when I was utterly exhausted....too exhausted to even see or think straight at times! ;-)

These drinks are so very easy to mix and make! I was very skeptical about the taste at first. I always am with powdered shake type drinks. You can enjoy these drinks hot or cold, and I chose to go with hot since that's how I am used to having my regular coffee. To mix, you simply add 12-14 oz. of water and 2 scoops of CLICK, whichever flavor you may choose. You then shake the drink for 30-60 seconds, and microwave for 60 seconds, remove, and stir. If it's still not hot enough for you, microwave for another 45 seconds or until you reach the temperature you desire. 

It took me less then 10 minutes to mix my first drink, so very easy! The taste was a little different at first, but I got used to it quickly, and the after taste is very good! I definitely noticed a surge of energy not too long after finishing my drink as well. 

Not only are these drinks delicious, but they have many health benefits. They contain 15 grams of protein and 23 vitamins and minerals! With only 6 grams of sugar and 120 calories, these drinks are the perfect choice for everyone! How could you go wrong?

My review package also came with some recipe cards, with ideas to flavor your CLICK drinks differently. 

I haven't tried these recipes yet, but the Pumpkin Mocha Spice definitely sounds yummy! Out of the two flavors I was sent for review, I think the Vanilla Latte one was my fave. I am a big vanilla fan! ;-)

All in all, I was completely happy with these products, and will definitely highly recommend them to my friends and family, especially busy, tired mamas like myself. :-)
