"Most days I try to avoid packaged foods entirely — I really scrutinize labels and aim to eat whole foods and make my own meals. There are, however, a few products that are so damn good — and clean! — that I'll totally forego making my own smoothie or snack and opt for the convenience instead. Après protein shake is one of those products; not only is it squeaky clean in terms of ingredients, but it's freakin' delicious (particularly the mint cacao flavor, my fave!).
When I think of bottled protein shakes, my mind thinks of my mom's '90s cans of SlimFast and thick, goopy aspartame concoctions — yuck! Après is the absolute opposite. It's fresh, light, smooth, not too thick, but still substantial — and made with natural ingredients like coconut sugar and chia protein. Put in a preorder now ($32 for a case) — you'll be just as obsessed as I am, trust me." — DA
