Upbeat is a low calorie, low fat fruity dairy drink that’s high in protein. There are currently 3 flavours; strawberry, blueberry & raspberry and mango & passionfruit (my favourite.) Unlike other protein based drinks, this one is more like drinking a smoothie so great if you don’t like the usual drinks available. Currently I’ve found Upbeat at Holland & Barrets, Co-Op and Tescos. You can visit their website for a list of stockists.
Speaking of their website, there’s a protein calculator which is really simple to use and tells you your personal recommended protein intake which to be honest, I had no idea before how much I needed.

You don’t need to be sporty to enjoy Upbeat either. I brought a bottle with me on my journey to the airport as when I’m on the go following time schedules I tend to skip meals which is really bad. Having this with me was great as it kept me feeling full. A healthy sports drink as well as a snack. Great for rushing around with. I hope they expand their range soon and maybe introduce a vegan suitable drink made with soy, pea or brown rice protein. Yummy!
What protein drinks do you drink? Have you tried Upbeat?
