The Original Mike’s Mix has no flavoring added. It is a testimony to the quality of the functional ingredients that they inherently taste good. A sweet cream is probably the best description of the subtle flavor, which is pleasant but not overpowering. The less water you mix with the original Mike’s Mix, the richer the flavor.
The original flavor is magnificent if used to make fruit smoothies. I add two to three scoops of Mike’s Mix, a cup of frozen fruit (my favorite is blueberries or raspberries) half a cup of ice and about half a cup of water to a blender and mix. I usually add half a lemon or lime to enhance the flavor and add a little extra vitamin C too.
Although the Original flavor tastes excellent if mixed with only water, my personal preference for a water only mix is chocolate Mike’s Mix. The chocolate is really chocolaty and mixed with about a cup of water it makes a rich and delicious beverage that I crave after my workouts. However, preference over chocolate or original is personal taste and judging from sales, customers are about evenly split. I invite existing customers to comment on the Mike’s Mix flavor. New customers will be much better served from you input than mine.
