What is Premier Protein
Premier Protein is a popular brand of protein shake available in various flavors. It is a dietary supplement or meal substitute designed for mainly weight loss program. But make sure not to heavily depend on them as they are not as good as whole foods.
Premier protein shakes are the elixir of healthy drinks. You get a large serving of all the right nutrients & minerals that will aid you in reinforcing the muscles after you workout. All these health benefits, without stacking up on calories. The few limited calories that come with the Premier Protein Powders and shakes are of low fat content.
Personally, I found the taste of most Premier Protein Shakes to be just as good as any other milkshake, while some being so good that I caved in and ordered a whole bunch, so I could have them as post-meal & post- workout dessert. Plus, they have a wide variety of flavors to pick from.
Premier Protein received “American Master of Taste Gold Medal” for ‘SUPERIOR TASTING’ by Chefs In America in 2015, 2016 and 2017 for its lack of prep time, multiple flavors and the great taste.
Premier Protein Shake is extracted from milk during cheese making process. Its dairy source makes it a high quality protein source.
This brand of milk protein comes with low sugar & fat content, so most of the calories of Premier Protein Shake comes from milk protein mostly.
What Are The Available Options
Protein shakes mainly come in two forms, powder & ready to drink shakes. Both have their demand based on the need, taste, and convenience of the user. Choosing to buy the powder and mix it yourself gives you control over the texture and flavor of the drink. On the other hand, ready to drink shakes are for those who are looking for something to eat on the go especially if you are running late for work in the morning or after a run. However, they contain relatively more sugar than the powder mix. Additionally, Premier Protein bars are available in the market as well.
Variants of Premier Protein Shake
I always had a tough time drinking protein shakes for its bland taste and the scary price tag. Besides, the thing that bothered me most was how protein shakes come calorie-packed and the fat content is relatively high as well. However, Premier Protein Shake is none of those things. In my personal opinion, consuming below 300 calories from a drink is acceptable if the overall positive effects outweigh the negative. If the ‘said’ drink comes with great health benefits, along with better taste, then don’t wait around. Get yourself the deal you deserve.
Why I recommend Premier Protein Shake
The protein shake can be used for fast and slow absorbing proteins to help with muscle recovery, muscle building, and overall satiety. Also, it has 24 vitamins and minerals and could be an awesome source of calcium. Furthermore, this shake can be used as a meal substitution or as a solid nibble. Not to mention, I just love the taste of this shake and that’s an enormous reason why I prefer it more than any normal protein shake. Another plus is that everything is done for you and you need not mess with blenders or shakers or muddled powder flying all over or doing dishes. Remember, it doesn’t ought to be refrigerated when you’re putting it away but once you open it, it does have to be refrigerated. Additionally, make sure to refrigerate or chill it ahead of drinking as it tastes much when chilled. Still not convinced? Here is a quick pros & cons list at a glance,

Rated Premier Protein Reviews
Overall, premier protein shake received positive reviews all over the world. It is specially a hit in online giants like amazon, Walmart and costco. Only about 3% of the customers were not fully satisfied with the Premier Protein Shake products for having a mild taste. It is probably because of the low fat content, but every drink that I had felt and tasted great, especially after a sweaty, heart-pounding workout. You can read about core powder protein review.
Before You Buy
If you regularly take protein supplements, then probably you should avoid protein shakes and focus more on natural sources of protein. Take protein supplements or drinking protein shakes is not a bad idea at all, but consuming both on a regular basis might be an overkill.
