Tastes good, mixes poorly in blender bottles
January 23, 2019
I use this in the morning post-workout. The taste of the Rich Chocolate is quite good, even with water.
I'm using a Blender Bottle with water - 14oz and 2 scoops, as it says. This stuff mixes incredibly poorly. Regardless of my shaking/swirling technique, blender ball on the top, bottom, etc, I cannot get it to mix completely, nor can I prevent dozens of tiny blobs from sticking to the inside of my cup. I've tried shake-weighting this thing to the point where it "rivals" my morning gym routine!
Contrast this with the Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey I'd been using previously, which would mix under the same circumstances perfectly, with my cup needing only a simple rinse to be clean enough for re-use the next day.
I thought that the lack of carbs in most protein products is what made them difficult to mix. Well, this Rivalus product has plenty of carbs but mixes much worse.
If you have a blender or magic bullet, this won't be a problem. But beware if you use a simple shaker cup!
