OK guys! It’s that time! I promised that I would share my absolute FAVORITE protein with y’all, so, here it is!
ABOUT TIME PROTEIN!
Here’s the thing… A an active female, I’ve always been into incorporating protein in the way of powder into my everyday diet, whether it be a workout day or a day off, I love knowing that I am feeding my muscles with the right protein even during rest days. Up until recently, I had tried many different brands, and found one that I was pretty happy with.
Well, when I was approached by About Time Protein to see if I would be interested in trying out their product, I didn’t hesitate. I did my research on their company and saw a great deal of information that caught my eye, in a great way.
You guys know that I only recommend things that I, myself would love and use!
I’ve tried every brand under the sun. Lots of them, too much sugar. Some, too many carbs. Others, too many cals. I mean, you just can’t win.
Let me give you some background on this fab line:
About Time was developed by exercise and food science experts who were tired of misleading labels and inferior ingredients used in other supplements. They dedicate themselves to providing you with the right products and knowledge to live a healthier, active lifestyle.
They use only natural ingredients. 100% whey Protein Isolate.
About Time is:
Cold-pressed micro filtered whey isolate
No sugar added
No artificial sweeteners
No growth hormones
No chalky aftertaste
Low cals. No Carbs
25 grams of PROTEIN
Available in 11 delish flavors
I was lucky to try out 4 different flavors. The banana, chocolate-peanut butter,vanilla, and chocolate. This is why it took me a while to review this product. I wanted to play around with different ways to incorporate About Time in, not just shakes, but, in foods too. I was VERY pleased with the soft, subtle texture of the powder. Definitely NO chalkyness.
If you are even just considering a new protein for your everyday FIT life, I am telling you, look no further.
Pre-workout: An hour before exercise, helps prevent muscle breakdown and stimulates the use of fat for fueling during exercise.
Post-workout: This is when I always take my protein. I consider it critical, especially when training hard.About Time helps stimulate protein synthesis and reduce protein degradation in your body. I take my protein within 30 minutes of finishing my workout.
Meal replacement:Great way to keep your metabolism in high gear, support muscle repair, and encourages a healthy immune system.
As a snack: Add into drinks or Bake into foods as a great on the go snack!
These are my experiments with About Time. So fun and delicious.
Now, for the first two examples, I used a Vitamix, but it’s not necessary. You can use whatever you’ve got.
For me, There’s nothing better than adding some green into my protein regimen. It aids in digestion, and adds a serving a veggies without feeling or tasting like it.

- 3 swiss chard leaves
- 1 pouch/1 scoop VANILLA About Time Protein

About Time Choco-Nut Shake

- 1 tbsp PB2 ( or you could use 1 tbsp all nutural peanut butter)
- 1 tsp cacao powder
- 2 tbsp low fat cottage cheese
- 1 tsp vanilla bean paste/extract
- taste and add stevia if preferred sweeter.
I consider this my “after night workout treat” it tastes like a naughty dessert, but really, it’s a super healthy and yummy way to get your protein in before your body goes into full rest mode.
Now come the YUMMIES!
Choco-Nut POWER Protein Cookies
- – 1/2 cup peanut butter Or if trying for less cals, try 1/4 cup mixed chocolate PB2 and 1/4 cup all natural peanut butter
- 1 pouch/1 scoop Chocolate/Peanut butter About Time Protein
- 3 egg whites
- 1 tsp baking powder
Make into rounds, and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 7-10 min.
These puppies cook fast, so keep an eye out. Also just have a feel at 7 minutes, they may be done, shouldn’t be too firm.
These are FANTASTIC! The flavors pop. I love having a couple with my morning coffee, before a workout, or as a dessert:)
They are super light , airy, and really, they take no time to prep and bake.
This was my FAVORITE recipe that I put together for the Banana About Time. I couldn’t stop eating these muffins! I became a banana-aholic! Check em’ out. You need to have these little protein muffins in your life, like ASAP!
Banana-Rama Protein Muffins
- 1 pouch/ 1 scoop Banana About Time Protein
- 3/4 Cup Organic Coconut Flour
- 1/2 Cup Erithrytol ( or if using stevia.. use just under 1/4 cup. its way sweeter. and if using liquid stevia…even less)I prefer erithrytol or xylitol for baking
- 1 tsp Baking powder
- 1 tsp Baking soda
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
- 1 Cup Mashed Very Ripe Banana
- 1 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 Cup Liquid Egg Whites
- 1 container 0% Greek Yogurt (fage or chobani)
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract/paste
- crushed walnuts (for topping)
- cacao nibs(for topping)
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. (make sure to really mix this well, the coconut flour tends to lump up)
Mix wet ingredients in separate bowl.
Combine mixtures , consistency should be of a doughy batter.
I used these cute little paper tins, but you could just put them right in the muffin tray, it would probably cook faster.
Pre-heat oven 350 degrees.
Grease 6 muffin tins. ( like to use either smart balance spray or organic coconut spray)
Evenly distribute batter into tins, Top with crushed walnuts and cacao nibs, and place in oven.
Bake for 16-20 mins.
They were RIDICULOUS! Sooooo good!
I took them out when they were still quiet soft and let them sit out and cool. I dipped into one, and fell in love. It was pretty much a healthy single serving of banana bread! Also, lovely with that bit of crunch from the nuts and nibs which are optional, if you’re not into that.
Never do you have to feel guilty now for enjoying a morning muffin!
