I really was looking for something that had a probiotic for dh since he doesn't want to eat yogurt. In the local store, there weren't any smoothies with probiotics, so I thought a protein smoothie might be something to try since he's probably not getting enough of that either. I gave it a swallow to see what it tasted like. I like the banana, orange, pineapple, coconut flavor, but I do not like the gritty texture.
I don't know--is soy protein supposed to be good for you? Some people are eschewing soy because it's a mostly genetically modified crop here in the US, some because of the way it is subsidized by the government, and some because soy supposedly acts as an estrogen in the body.
Hopefully this isn't the only "new food" I try this year.
When I bought this smoothie, I saw a young athlete (grocery shopping with his mother--oh, the nostalgia) perusing the smoothies. I pointed out the coupon dispenser ($1 off the Naked brand!) and I asked if there was any chance these smoothies might make me taller. "I don't know. It might work!" Oh for the idealism of youth!
