Designer Whey Sustained Energy Review & Giveaway

DWheyA couple of months ago, I had the chance to review a number of products from Designer Whey – they were all a win with me so I was very happy to get another chance through FitFluential to try Designer Whey’s newest product Sustained Energy™.

Key features of the Sustained Energy™ line include:

  • Formulated with Endurance Blend™ : Designed to give you balanced, stimulant-free, sustained energy through a premium protein blend of fast-absorbing whey protein and slower absorbing soy & casein proteins.
  • 16g of Protein: 32% Daily Value per serving.
  • 5g of Fiber: To help control hunger.
  • Packed with 19 Vitamins and Minerals: Including B-vitamins to help convert protein, carbohydrates, and fats into energy; vitamins A, C, & E for fast workout recovery; and, calcium and vitamin D to maintain strong bones.
  • 100 calories per serving: Naturally flavored and just 1g of sugar.

Sustained Energy™ comes in two great flavors – Vanilla Bean and Chocolate Velvet. And while I enjoyed them both, Chocolate Velvet was definitely my favorite.

Choco VelvetThis concoction I call Chocolate Heaven is a yummy combination of:

  • 1 scoop Designer Whey Chocolate Velvet
  • 1 cup chocolate almond milk
  • 5- 6 frozen whole strawberries
  • 3-4 frozen cherries (an extra boost of antioxidants for muscle recovery)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed

While I usually love drinking chocolate milk post-run, this shake has been a great alternative and has given me a little added staying power when lunch doesn’t happen until late in the day (which has happened on more than one occasion lately with all the various end-of-year school activities!)

The great folks at Designer Whey are offering 6yes six! — Running with Attitude readers a chance to try the new Sustained Energy protein powder in the flavor of their choice!

  1. (not entering) i’ve been LOVING my vanilla bean!!!!

  2. I am definitely trying that concoction! Sounds delicious. (not entering)

  3. I’d love to try the vanilla bean flavor. It would probably taste really good after a hard workout and also mix well with vanilla almond milk or any fruits I wanted to add in.

  4. I want to try the Vanilla Bean!

  5. I would love to try the chocolate. I use Designer Whey products but I haven’t tried the sustained energy line. Hope I win.

  6. Looks so good – whey protein isolate is definitely the best for muscle building!

  7. Jordan D says:

    Vanilla bean is usually really versatile. Sounds awesome, thanks for the giveaway!

  8. Suegene Wagner says:

    Chocolate for me – your recipe sounds awesome! I already use Designer Whey but have not tried this product!

    Vanilla Bean sounds tasty!

    I would love the chocolate!

  12. I’d like to try the chocolate velvet!
    I’ve heard about Designer Whey before but have not really wavered much from my GNC Amplified protein powder- protein powder is really too expensive to be just going around and trying everything. Thanks!

  13. I’d love to try the Vanilla flavor. I love chocolate protein powder, but I’m really interested in using vanilla powder in things like pancake, oatmeal, and even cookie recipes.

    Also, I tweeted!

  14. Vanilla Bean sounds yummy! Thank you!

  15. I would first try the chocolate velvet.

  16. I’d love chocolate

  17. i follow you both on twitter and tweeted

  18. I would like to try the chocolate velvet!

  19. I now follow you both and I tweeted!

  20. Valuable information. Fortunate me I discovered your site accidentally, and I’m stunned why this coincidence did not took place earlier!
    I bookmarked it.
