High5’s drink supplies a blend of carbohydrate from maltodextrin and protein from whey protein isolate to provide a 2.3:1 carbs to protein ratio.
Although there are no other added nutrients, this one’s free of all artificial colours, preservatives, flavours and sweeteners.
High5 recommends mixing with water for a rapid release of nutrients, or with milk for a more sustained release (before bedtime, for example).
Either way, it mixed readily to give an authentic banana flavour, not too sweet and with a smooth consistency.
We preferred it with skimmed milk, which gave it more body, making it very moreish. And, while £40+ sounds a lot per tub, 2.6p per gram is quite reasonable.
