My family and I have been long-time customers of Premier Protein Shakes. We buy them by the case and drink them throughout the day. I love them especially for on the go in the morning after I got everyone ready and off to school and me being the last to get ready with no time to sit down and eat. There are a variety of flavors to choose from such as Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberries & Cream, Bananas & Cream, and Caramel.

The best part of the Premier Protein Shakes is that that is no preparation involved. Just shake and drink. I love coming up with new recipes adding the protein shakes in the mix. One of our weekend favorite recipes is chocolate chip protein pancakes. It’s a great time to gather with family enjoying a healthy, delicious breakfast.
