  • its protein
    It is the same protein thats sold retail. Tastes good and was a few bucks cheaper....more info
  • Nature's Plus - Spiru-Tein Cookies & Cream, 2.3 lb powder
    I think I tried this from the variety pack and I absolutely love it. I tried mixing this with water and it tasted terrible but when I mixed a little milk and water, it came out perfect (for me anyway). I can only tell you that I like it. If you are not familiar with the product, I would auggest you try the variety pack to see if it is in there and buy that. ...more info
  • Better than a multi vitamin
    Supplies most of your daily requirements + protein of a meal and it tastes great. I use to take a variety of vitamins and minerals, but it was always a struggle to swallow those tablets--now it don't have to. Hubby and I start EVERY day with a drink--no excuses not to have a liquid breakfast :)

    I've now hooked my parents on this product as well. Ensure (protein drink/meal replacement) for adults/seniors has too many calories and doesn't taste good--this is a great alternative.

    Also great as a end-of-the-day meal if you're attempting to loose weight.

    Other great flavors: Chocolate, strawberry, pina colada, tangerine dream. The others not mentioned are good too, but these are the family favorites....more info
  • healthy fast food option!
    My family enjoys the spirutein shakes. It makes for a fast healthy breakfast or quick snack after school for the adults and children.
    Only thing: best to mix in a blender. Even though I believe the company says "blends instantly", this is only done properly in a blender....more info
  • Nature's Plus - Spiru-Tein Vanilla
    I use a blender to make shakes and this powder is not gritty at all it tastes pretty good and has no artificial sugar in it...more info
  • Spirutein shake
    I have used this product for three years, daily as a breakfast shake. I add fruit or chocolate, yogurt or soy milk, and it makes a very satisfying meal. ...more info
  • Increase Your Energy
    Spiru-Tein contains energizing ingredients and this powder blends into a delicate lime-tinged shake when mixed with milk, soy milk or Rice Dream. I like using double the milk or juice because it makes the shake much more palatable and decreases the taste of Whey. I prefer the taste of soy protein, but this shake has many benefits and the whey taste is hardly noticeable.

    Whey is a highly respected source of branched-chain amino acids. The amino acids found in this product include: Isoleucine, Histidine, Leucine, Arginine, Lysine, Aspartic Acid, Methionine, Serine, Cysteine, Glutamic Acid, Threonine, Proline, Phenylalanine, Glycine, Tryptophan, Alanine, Valine and Tyrosine.

    Amino acids aid in the production of hormones, neurotransmitters and enzymes. There are essential amino acids that cannot be synthesized by the body and when your body is lacking in even one amino acid, it can have a negative effect on your health. This product provides essential and nonessential amino acids.

    This powder not only has a broad profile of essential vitamins and minerals, it is filled with diet-aids (Lecithin, Spirulina, Choline and Inositol) and enzymes (Bromelain and Papaya). You also get the added benefit of cleansing ingredients (Chlorophyll) and Fiber (Bran, Cellulose and Apple Pectin).

    Ingredients: Micro-filtered whey protein concentrate, fructose, di-calcium phosphate, xanthan gum, vanilla flavor, fructooligosaccharides (FOS - supports the growth of probiotics/healthy bacteria), guar gum, psyllium, maltodextrin, potassium citrate, magnesium oxide, microcrystalline cellulose, spirulina, vitamin C, vitamin E acetate, choline bitarate (plays a role in the metabolism of fats), inositol (helps the liver process fats), apple pectin, bee pollen, niacinamide, vitamin A palmitate, zinc oxide, manganese sulfate, ferrous fumarate, calcium pantothenate, lecithin, lemon bioflavonoids (from lemons and an important for collagen formation), papaya (digestive enzyme), bromelain, chlorophyll, pyridoxine HCL, riboflavin, thiamine HCL, vitamin B-12, ergocalciferol (a form of Vitamin D), folic acid, biotin, potassium iodine, chromium chloride, sodium selenite, sodium molybdate...and LOVE. No really, they list Love as an ingredient.

    While you don't need a blender, I'd recommend a shaker. I find this blends well with a variety of ingredients. You may enjoy making your own shake variations in the blender. This powder tastes best when blended with very cold juice or milk.

    You may also want to try the Chocolate and Strawberry varieties. You can drink a shake before or after a workout or drink a shake daily to nourish your body with high-quality nutrients. Nature's Plus is a company that is known for their dedication to quality. They have 21 quality control procedures to ensure the potency of their products. Not only do they use the highest quality raw materials from reputable suppliers, they also take great care to produce products with only all-natural ingredients.

    If you enjoy this product, I have a feeling you will love the All-One Nutritech products. They have an incredible Fruit Antioxidant Dietary Supplement and a rather tasty Totally Fiber Product you can sprinkle on yogurt.

    Also try the "Tangerine Dream" soy protein powder with
    orange juice. That is one of the most delicious protein
    powders to mix with orange juice.

  • My Only Choice For A Supplement
    Why continue tasting all the canisters at the health food store when you find one you really like? That's my question.

    Spiru-Tein is perfect - smooth and tasty. One scoop in a glass, mixed with milk (my preference) and a little hand whisk and voila, instant 'milkshake'. Mix well, though, because if you don't it may be left with some floating lumps of powder at the top.

    I buy the vanilla (although this comes in a multitude of excellent flavors) because I like to add my own flavoring. One day I may put some cherry juice in it, another day perhaps some blueberry or strawberry flavoring. Yummy.

    Spiru-Tein satisfies the hunger and takes the edge off the appetite. A perfect snack or in-between meal or even breakfast or lunch, itself.

    Sometimes when I have company I offer them a 'milkshake' and they always love it. Easy to store - no refrigeration. It contains 100% of the daily value for Vitamins A, C, D, E, B6, B12 and Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, Folic Acid, Biotin, Panothenic Acid, Iodine, Zinc. And, it provides 250% of the daily value for Manganese!

    If you have children, fix them this. Get Healthy! Buy It.

  • pat's choice
    This and all other flavors of spiru-tein,that I have tried are so good tasting you have to taste to belive. I usually do not like this kind of meal replacement, and they usually do not make me feel as if I've had a meal. THESE DO THEY ARE SUPER GREAT...more info
  • Great taste & benefits
    This is a great product for anyone looking for either a meal replacement or for a high protein snack. I mix it with orange juice and a few ice cubes in a blender and it tastes like a smoothie....more info
  • Totally addicted
    My wife and I have been buying and drinking this product for years. We've tried all the flavors but we both like the Vanilla best by far. The secret for making this (or any other flavor) into a delicious healthy shake is this:

    Start with a decent blender that can crush ice cubes, or use the crushed ice option in your ice maker if it does that. Put 3 oz of crushed ice or ice cubes -- 5 cubes from MY refrigerator ice maker, yours may vary -- into the blender. If cubes, crush them first in the blender at high speed. Add 8 oz skim milk to the crushed ice and start blender. IMMEDIATELY add 1 measure of powder by sprinkling it in over several seconds. Blend only a few seconds more after you finish adding the powder, then pour and enjoy. [NB: Dumping the powder in all at once will often cause undissolved clumps to stick to the blender. Overblending will melt the ice and thicken the shake too much.]

    The drink produced by this method will be frosty and delicious, like the best milkshake you've ever had....more info
  • Very good - here is my favorite recipie
    The powder is an aquired taste, because it isn't as sweet as you might think. But, I love it. I always feel really good after I have had a shake. It is low calorie, and makes a good afternoon snack or breakfast. The Chocolate flavor is my favorite. My Shake recipie is: 1 scoop of Chocolate Spiroteen, 2 cups of skim milk or soy milk, one peeled banana, 6 ice cubes, one teaspoon of instant coffee (optional) 1/4 cup of plain yogurt (optional). Mix in a blender until the ice is finely chopped. The instant coffee makes it taste like a mocha. The banana sweetens the drink and makes it as thick as a milk shake from a burger place. The ice makes it nice and cold. ...more info

    Nature's Plus - Spiru-Tein Strawberry Flavor, 2.4 lb powder


    I love this product!!!I bought a small packet first and just love it and bought more!!!!...more info
  • love it
    I drink a large glass of the chocolate powder with milk every morning. I love it. The stirring used to drive me crazy, as I used to try to break up every little clump. Now I think of the little clumps like the marshmallows in hot chocolate, and it doesn't bother me. I've tried similar powdered products from other brands, which mixed together better, but the taste was terrible. Spirutein's taste better than most milkshakes, and it's good for you....more info
  • a vegan's favorite
    (Attn vegans: It does contain bee "pollen"....) I have loved spirutein for a while now. Though, I have narrowed my selection down to : Chocolate, vanilla, and the cookies n' cream. They're amazing. I try to drink one a day to make sure I get enough protein(14 grams per scoop) and vitamins. It's quick and easy. Especially if you have a single-serve-blender. ( I highly recommend the Hamilton Beach version, best $17 I've ever spent) These spirutein powders need a blender, even though they say "just stir in." That's not happening. For best results combine:
    Spirutein powder, Milk or milk-alternative, and a thickener (ice-cream, banana, etc) and a couple cubes of ice is nice. Some flavors need a tbsp of sweetener.
    The choc. powder with a scoop of soy/rice vanilla ice cream and 8 oz. milk-substitute becomes the best Wendy's Frosty you've ever had. The vanilla powder with a banana, milk-subtitute, a tbsp of honey, ice and walnuts sprinkled on top is so delicious. Enjoy. And remember, protein is important if you want to keep your hair!

  • Great Taste and Nutrition
    I love to have Spiru Tein for breakfast. It also makes a great snack and good meal replacement if you're trying to lose weight, lots of nutrients and gives you energy. I've tried a lot of protein shakes and this is my favorite. I make the vanilla flavor with 8 oz. of light vanilla soy milk, 4 oz. of water, two packets of splenda, a little cinnamon, nutmeg, and a touch of vanilla then mix with a hand mixer (shaking does NOT work well!) add some ice and voila! It's really good (it has a green tint, but it's good!).

    I ordered the Strawberry Shortcake flavor and it had that chemical smell and the first time I made it by itself (w/just fat free milk), I couldn't even finish it, it tasted so bad. Then I tried it again with the splenda, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg and it's MUCH better, I can at least finish the can I have.

    Then I got the variety pack...so far I've tried the Double Fudge Crunch and the Cookies n' Creme which had good reviews, but I didn't care for either one. I still have a few more flavors to try from the variety pack, but I think I'll be sticking with the Vanilla! Just wish it wasn't so expensive, but if you think about what you spend a month on fast food meals, it's is a better value it's better for you!...more info
  • Delicious
    The SPIRU-TEIN High Protein Energy Meal Strawberry Protein Powder is as close to perfect as a protein powder could be. One scoop blended with an orange, kiwi, apple and orange juice makes a delicious and nutritious shake. This shake will benefit you in the following ways:

    You get 100% of the Daily Value of all vitamins
    They have made sure you get a Broad Profile of Essential Minerals
    Soy Protein and Bee Pollen are added for energy
    Diet aids like Lecithin, Spirulina, Choline and Inositol are included

    This powder also contains Bromelain, Papaya, Chlorophyll, Bran, Cellulose and Apple Pectin. The Amino Acid Profile per serving is also impressive.

    Add in a scoop of ice cream and it turns dreamy. You then have a pink strawberry shake that is and very healthy and especially delicious. I'm of the opinion that a little ice cream now and then is a good way to encourage you to eat more fruit. It only takes a few minutes to cut up the fruit and this powder blends so fast, making a shake will seem like you are saving time.

  • Strawberry and OJ
    I've tried a number of protein powders and all of them except Nature's Plus Spiru-Tein were too sweet. Using a hand blender, I mix a scoop of Strawberry with 2 oz. of OJ and 6 oz. of water plus a fortifying tablespoon of flaxseed. The OJ rachets up the taste of the Strawberry. I've found that the handmixer really thickens the drink to shake consistency.

    I have tried other flavors, but keep coming back to the Strawberry.

  • Great, neutral taste, nice consistency
    I have been using this powder for a few years now. It blends well and has a taste that is not overwhelming to whatever you are mixing in it. Great with bananas, frozen berries, etc. Not too chalky or thick....more info
  • This makes a great shake
    This makes a great shake once you use a hand mixer. I think the flavor is great. Simply a wonderful product I've recommeded to my family....more info
  • Great stuff - buy it somewhere else!
    Spirutein is a wonderful product. It has helped my husband and I in our weight loss/control program. Tastes good, controls hunger, nutritious.

    BUT DON'T GET IT FROM THE VITAMIN SHOPPE! They advertise "Free Shipping on orders over $[...]" - but when I placed my order I was charged for shipping. When I contacted customer service I was told that the offer did not apply to amazon sales. THEN WHY DO THEY ADVERTISE IT HERE:

    This is an amazing product and it helps with my levels of energy and also hair thickness as well! i would highly recomend it and do to anyone who needs some extra nutrition or a boost for health and fitness....more info
  • great product, terrible vendor
    I have been ordering this product for years, mainly thru Amazon. This was the first time I had a problem. Vitamin Life took 14 days to ship a package and when I complained it hadn't arrived they sent back an automated response. I wrote customer service again to complain with no repsonse. Will never again use this company. too many other great companies offering the same item....more info
  • Spiru-Tein Vanilla Is My Favorite
    I searched far and wide looking for a good meal replacement shake. I tried everything from Slim Fast to MetRX, to MediFast and none of them were very tasty. Spiru-Tein Vanilla, however, is so good that I drink it just for the pleasure of it. The fact that it has all of the vitamins I need and helps me to lose weight is great, but I'd drink it no matter what. I take it with me on trips and it's great for taking care of those between meal times. I suggest that you invest $5.00 in a whip style drink mixer. It's a battery powered stirrer that really does a good job of smoothing out any lumps that form in the mixing process. The only complaint I would have regarding the Spiru-Tein products is that they can be a bit tricky to make so they are all smooth, (no lumps of mix). If you use the battery powered stirrer, it's as easy as pie. Shaker cups work very well also!

    The flavor is just like a good vanilla shake and the texture is nice and thick. If there's anything a bit unusual, it's that the shake is white with a slight GREEN tint. The green is from the sirulina (algae) they put in because it's so good for you. I love giving them to friends because they usually don't notice that it's a little bit green until they've already taken the first sip. That first sip is all it takes to be HOOKED!...more info
  • Love the chocolate one
    I've tried a couple and the chocolate is definitely the best. While sweet, it's not as sweet tasting as all of the others, while still tasting like chocolate with great vitamins! Recommended....more info
  • Delicious!!
    I have tried many brands of soy shakes, and this one is delicious.. I sure recomend it to anyone that wants to start the healthy habit of drinking soy. Cookies & Cream flavor tastes like a real shake!! I really enjoy this drinks!...more info
  • Pleasantly surpised
    Very good product. Does not taste chalky like other shakes. We buy the natural and add our own flavoring. My wife adds strawberry, and I like banana and blueberries. One shake in the morning and I am good until lunch without the urge to snack. ...more info
  • Fantastic!
    I love this drink. It's a bit of an acquired taste--I found it a little bit chalky, but I love it now. It's full of essential nutrients, so it's completely worth the cost. The chocolate flavor is by far the best in my humble opinion. I usually combine a cup (it comes with its own measuring cup) with a cup of skim milk and blend it. Mixing it together without a blender causes it to clump something awful, so a blender is definitely essential. I recommend pouring how much milk you intend to drink in the your designated drinking vessel first before you blend; the shake has a tendency to froth and this way you don't end up with excess sitting in the blender. Generally I've found that on the days that I have time to drink this shake (washing the blender in the morning can prove to be a bit much) I have more energy and just feel...healthier. You really can't go wrong with this drink. I found that drinking this as a meal replacement aid was very helpful in weight loss....more info
  • good stuff
    I really enjoyed the shake, I received it in a timely manner , I was very happy with my purchase. thank you jw...more info
  • best tasting protein shake ever
    i don't know what the above person is saying... spiru-tein doesnt contain whey! this is especially good for women because of the soy content. it could be easily used as a meal replacement. i drink one every night to replace dinners. the cookies and cream one flavor is UNBELIEVABLE. i've tried chocolate as well, but cookies and cream tastes like a real shake you'd order at a restaurant. believe me, it doesn't really get better than this. ...more info
