Because protein is an essential nutrient when you’re working out, many people rely on protein-filled shakes to help them get the amount they need. The one problem with this is that many are loaded with sugar, the one substance that can not only increase your waistline, but also harm your health.
Before you swear off protein shakes for good due though, there are some sugar free protein shake options. Here are five that you may want to consider:
Isopure Zero or Low Carb – These two types of protein powder have absolutely no sugar, but they do contain an amazing 50 grams of protein per serving. And they come in a bunch of flavors ranging from toasted coconut to Dutch chocolate. Yum!
- Nova Dairy Free Protein Shake – Not only does Nova powder have no added sugar, but it also has no dairy, gluten, or wheat. That makes it a great option if you’re watching your intake of these other food sources.
- Puritan – Consume Puritan brand protein shakes and you’ll get tons of flavor without the addition of sugar as they use Stevia to sweeten it. Their mouthwatering flavors include pistachio, strawberry, and almond.
- Pulsin Pea Protein Powder – As the name suggests, Pulsin’s protein powder is derived from peas and they don’t add sugar to it. Plus, it’s a great choice if you don’t want a huge amount of protein as it supplies just over 8 grams per serving.
- Seeking Health Optimal Protein – At 17 grams of protein per serving, Seeking Health brand protein powder also has no gluten or soy and it is non-GMO. Like Pulsin, its protein source is also pea, with a little bit of rice too.
