Click Espresso Protein Drink Review and Giveaway

Click Protein DrinkProtein is one of the body's main building blocks for muscle, bone, skin, and other tissues. I have tried several varieties of whey protein drinks as well as soy protein drinks. The reason I have tried a variety of brands is because I can never find one that actually tastes good. Sure, it may be packed full of protein, and essential vitamins and minerals, but if I need to hold my nose to gulp it down, I would rather pass.

I recently had the opportunity to try CLICK Espresso Protein Drink. CLICK is like no other protein drink mix on the market. It combines protein with double shot espresso to create a satisfying all-in-one energy drink. 

About Click

Every serving of CLICK includes 23 vitamins and minerals, a double shot espresso, 15 grams of protein and just 120 calories!

My Initial Thoughts

Based on the nutritional information, CLICK certainly appeared to be promising. With it’s high protein level, low calorie, low sugar and low carb content, CLICK definitely has everything a good protein drink should have.

I received my CLICK Espresso Protein drink during the time that my brother was home on leave before his next assignment. He servers in the military and is extremely fit and muscular. He consumes protein drinks on a daily basis so I asked him to tell me what he thought about CLICK. As he read over the label, he told me CLICK sounds like a great product and would be highly beneficial to me.


My Review

I received a 16 ounce canister of the Mocha blend and was very impressed by the sleek (Pink/black) packaging design. I also received the CLICK Shaker, which has a 20 ounce capacity and includes a whisk ball.

The instructions suggest CLICK can be enjoyed as a hot or cold beverage. Since it’s 100° in Texas, I opted for the cold version. I have been enjoying CLICK on a daily basis and have discovered when adding ice, it is best to mix water with your protein powder. Once the protein powder is blended well, you may add ice. The first time I prepared my protein drink, I added ice to water, then my protein powder. The protein powder adhered to the ice and did not mix well. CLICK tastes great without ice, but when ice is added it reminds me of my favorite Starbucks iced beverage. CLICK is smooth and chocolaty. Best of all – it tastes like a gourmet drink rather than a protein drink and there is no bad aftertaste.

When preparing my CLICK protein drink, I used the Shaker with the included whisk ball. My drink blended well each and every time. It was so nice to be able to enjoy my protein drink with out globs of powder. The shaker is clear and includes a pink and black CLICK logo. The lid is black with a white stopper. I love the design and feel comfortable taking my shaker cup with me. I was impressed by the non-leak design. I even dropped my shaker cup when it was full, and it didn’t leak a drop. The shaker cup, lid, and whisk ball are all dishwasher safe, which makes for easy cleanup. I enjoy mine quite often though, so I just rinse with soapy water and place on the drying rack.

Each serving of CLICK contains as much caffeine as a single cup of coffee. CLICK is a great alternative to sugary sodas and energy drinks. I absolutely love the taste! Finally, a delicious protein drink, I actually want to drink. I drink two glasses of CLICK a day, and would drink more, if I could without elevating my protein intake.

I was even surprised to find out my husband enjoys CLICK too. He doesn’t normally drink coffee, but he loved CLICK so much, he stole my shaker from me. When mixing CLICK without the shaker, the majority of the powder dissolves, but there is still a small amount that may surface to the top of the liquid. I would highly recommend the shaker cup, or two if you don’t want yours disappearing.

Besides tasting absolutely delicious, and delivering protein and essential vitamins and nutrients, CLICK gave me the energy boost I was looking for. It tastes better than coffee, has less sugar and kept me going throughout the day, without feeling jittery or crashing mid-morning. Purchase information is available below.
