California National Products is a company that has provided supermarkets and national food stores with more than 150 organic and all-natural products for over 30 years.
Their mission statement;
“To improve the health and wellness of consumers by creating the best-tasting, nourishing and convenient foods at a great value, without compromising on quality or the environment”
In 2009, CNP created a new brand called, CalNaturale, in which they introduced their first all-natural protein shake, Svelte.
Svelte is made with “pure and simple ingredients” such as rice syrup solids, soy protein, Stevia and inulin; a fiber, pre-biotic and complex carb that aids in both digestion and the absorption of calcium and magnesium.
The combination of these ingredients makes for a filling drink that is kosher,vegan and low glycemic,as well as dairy, gluten, and cholesterol free.
With 16g of protein, 35-40g of complex carbs and 20-30% of our daily fiber, one whole shake is sure to satisfy your hunger for up to 4-6 hours.
As an on the go snack, the base of a smoothie, or in place of milk in your cereal, these shakes fit perfectly into any healthy and active adult’s lifestyle. Plus, they come in a Tetra Paks re-closable container that is both convenient and eco-friendly, an added bonus.
In honor of CalNaturale’s #BeSvelteBoston campaign, which aims towards bringing new energy into the new year, I was sent some samples try and was blown away at how tasty and creamy these shakes truly were.
They come in four flavors: Spiced Chai, French Vanilla, Cappuccino and Chocolate; my favorite!
I was skeptical about how the Spiced Chai would taste, but it was actually really delicious! All of the flavors were rich, velvety smooth, and the perfect shake consistency.
Because I like to eat real food for my main meals, I sipped half of a shake as a post workout recovery snack, and also added some of the French Vanilla to my coffee in the morning, which tasted great.
CalNaturale even recommends using Svelte in these tasty smoothie recipes:
- Chocolate-Banana Bliss: 1 CalNaturale Svelte Chocolate shake blended with 1 banana and 1 cup of ice
- Cappuccino Crush: 1 CalNaturale Svelte Cappuccino blended with 1 cup of ice
For a price of $2.99 for a 15.9 ounce shake, I’d say Svelte is definitely worth a try!
