My Protein Review: Total Nutri-Greens and High Protein Cookies

There’s no denying that I am a superfoods advocate! In the last 18 months especially I have grown to love and appreciate nourishing my body inside out with superfood supplements such as Spirulina, Maca, and Barley Grass to name a few. So when an email popped into my inbox from the lovely people at MyProtein, asking if I would like to try any of their products, Total Nutri-Greens l was product that instantly grabbed my attention when browsing through their site.

MyProtein Nutri-Greens Tropical Flavour 330g

This 330 g pouch is absolutely jam packed full of 22 (no typo) different highly nutritious, antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables. I was glad to learn that Spirulina, Apple Fibre, Wheatgrass and Alfalfa made up part the extensive list of ingredients used. My only real gripe and let down with this blend is the use of sucralose, an artificial sweetener!

Hand on heart, this blend would have easily been a regular staple in my household had it not contained sucralose and think I will opt to try and purchase the  plain version next time around as it doesn’t contain sucralose or citric acid (I will add Xylitol for natural sweetness if it needs any), as I would  hate to miss out on all of that nutritional micro-nutrient goodness this lovely blend provided my body with when consuming it with just plain water just over a two week period.

I instantly noticed my energy levels were up, I felt more alert, my stools were daily (fibre helps clear the gut) and generally felt great both on the inside out whilst having this blend on a daily basis.


MyProtein Nutri-Greens Tropical is by far the best tasting superfood supplement I have tasted to date. Usually I would mix such powders into my morning home-made juices and smoothies as some can be quite pungent and fowl tasting but such is the pleasant combination of 22 antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables coupled with a hint of tropical flavours, my taste buds were not complaining.


Soy Lecithin, Spirulina, Flavouring, Apple Fibre Powder, Barley Grass Powder, Wheat Grass Powder, Oat Fibre Powder, Pomegranite Seed, Alfalfa Grass powder, Chlorella Broken Cell Wall, Citric Acid, Soy Sprout Powder, Acerola Berry, Red Beet Root Powder, Siberian Ginseng, Carrot Powder, Tomato Juice, Astragalus Root Powder, Spinach Leaf, Brocolli Powder, Gingko Biloba, Green Tea Leaf, Grape Seed, Elderberry Whole Fruit Powder, Blueberry Whole Fruit Powder, Beta Carotene, Sweetener (Sucralose).


MyProtein Nutri-Greens 330 g is currently priced at £14.99 when purchased directly from the My Protein website and is also available in 660 g pouch priced at £24.99.

If you are looking to boost your daily micro-nutrient intake to truly be healthy on the inside out, this blend comes highly recommended but would suggest purchasing the plain flavour if you like I, want to stay clear of consuming artificial sweeteners as part of your diet.

MyProtein High Protein Cookies


To my surprise I was also sent a few different flavours of their protein cookies including Double Chocolate, Chocolate Orange and White Chocolate Almond. Whilst nice to taste and had a great, chewy like texture, I found them a little too sweet for me as they contained refined sugar!

Now these protein cookies aren’t bad tasting at all, the Orange Chocolate one reminded my of Terry’s Chocolate Orange and the White Chocolate and Almond flavour seriously resembles the infamous taste and sweet aroma of marzipan! Unfortunately due to the refined sugar content with the addition of using artificial sweetener Sucralose, I won’t be making another purchase of these simply because they don’t meet my nutritional preferences.

On the plus side these generously sized cookies make a great post workout snack as each 75 g cookie contains a whopping 37.5 g of protein!!

If you don’t mind consuming refined sugar and artificial sweeteners, then you might want to try these yourself but for me, I prefer to avoid consuming such ingredients. That’s just me though! You personally might not mind consuming these ingredients so don’t let my personal nutritional preference sway your decision as I couldn’t fault the taste in any cookies that were sent.

If only these were made with a natural sweetener such as Xylitol other natural sweeteners, I would have purchased a few more protein cookies to include when experimenting with dessert creations but the experience has inspired me to make own plant based protein cookies with the My Protein Vegan Blend also kindly sent for my to try (watch this space on).


These MyProtein Protein Cookie Sample are priced at £1.59 when purchased directly from their website.

I was also kindly sent a pouch of plant based protein powder Vegan Blend Chocolate which I will be sharing my thoughts (and recipes) with you in a separate upcoming article next week so do keep posted!


Personal nutrition preferences aside, overall, I am  happy with the products kindly sent by the MyProtein Team (thank you Si!). They are not overly priced like other sports nutrition and manufacture brands and really LOVE the earthy texture and taste of MyProtein Vegan Blend! (upcoming review)

I will most likely purchase the Unflavoured Nutri Greens powder and add my preferred natural sweetener to it as well as experiment with natural flavourings to mimic the tropical flavour sent.
