Recently, I was sent a box of Ambronite to review. It’s a drinkable meal made with organic, whole food ingredients that is advertised to curb hunger and keep you energized and satisfied for 4-5 hours. Just to be clear, this is intended as a meal replacement and geared towards individuals that want a healthy, filling and nutrient-dense meal on-the-go. Cooking is not always convenient on busy days and sometimes we just ain’t got time for that! Enter the whole food meal in a glass….
This shake contains 18 organic ingredients, including: oats, coconut, lucuma, chlorella, wild bilberry, wild sea buckthorn, brown rice protein, stinging nettle, rice bran, nutritional yeast, spinach, spirulina, almonds, flaxseed, apple, mineral salt, brazil nut and black current. Ambronite is Vegan, created with clean ingredients and nutritionally balanced for the best metabolic response. I’ve got a hell of a metabolism (thankfully), so if this shake kept me full I was going to be impressed. Here’s the breakdown of the nutrients in the shake:
I like the macronutrient split, it comes close to a 40/30/30, which is a good ratio for me. I shoot for 25-30 grams of protein per meal and eat about 5 times a day, on average. This shake gives me 30 grams of protein, 18 g fat and 54 g carbs, with 13 g of those carbs coming from fiber. I like that I’m getting 500 nutrient-dense calories in this shake, so it’s definitely not a “skinny” shake targeted towards weight loss.
About the taste…it’s honestly not bad, a little thick so you need to gum it a little before you swallow it. I think the best way to describe it would be a nutty, oatmeal flavor with a mild hint of green powder mixed in (and I would like to emphasize MILD hint of green powder, because I have to choke down most supergreen powdered supplements, this one’s pretty darn good). I just used water with it, since I didn’t want to jack up the calories, but you can definitely add half a banana, some low-sugar orange juice or unsweetened vanilla or chocolate almond milk. The taste definitely grew on me and I actually kinda like it. I love knowing that I’m putting quality nutrition into my body, when I’m in a rush.
So what’s my opinion of the energy and satiating benefits of this shake? It kept me full for a good three hours and I was not at all ravenous at my next meal, which often happens with me if I go too long…..this girl can get hangry!
