Some work-out enthusiasts prefer an unflavored whey protein supplement so that they can choose to mix it with any fruit or flavor they want. However for those who want minimal fuss and take their whey as straightforward as possible, there is the flavored whey option – much like WheyLabs 100% Whey Protein Banana Split, and here’s our quicky review!

Taste and Mixability
The creamy taste of WheyLabs concentrate makes it great to mix in unsweetened milk as a morning milkshake. You can drink it on its own or mix a little chocolate powder to turn it into a banana chocolate milk shake you can chug down before or after training. You can also mix it with plain water and other milk substitutes like almond, soy, hazelnut or macadamia milk. The good thing about WheyLabs Banana Split is its diversity of use in the kitchen. Aside from making shakes, you can also use WheyLabs concentrate as a pancake mix and cook it for a healthy breakfast or pre/post work-out snack. You may even add fruits and nuts to the mix to further modify your pancake according to your taste.

Overall Rating: 4/5
I can understand the hesitancy of some of you to try a new whey protein product in the market. However, if you want a new whey protein that can give your taste buds an exciting new flavor, then go and try WheyLabs 100% Banana Split. It is a creamy milkshake you will look forward to drinking every day. However, if you’re not really fond of banana flavor, and you have no time to experiment with adding ingredients in your pancake or shake to try to change the flavor either, then you have to think twice about purchasing this specific variant as the flavor is very specific and distinct. The simplicity of the ingredients is another good reason for getting this product. Less is truly more, and the fewer ingredients, the better. Straightforward products with straightforward ingredients really win points with me. Finally, the price is pretty average compared to other whey supplements.
Would I recommend this?
Yes, go and try it, especially for the banana flavor lovers out there! In the Philippines, you can get your stack of WheyLabs supplements through Nutrition Depot for only P2,200.00.
