We give the new Breakfast Milk Drink from Fuel Your 10k Hours the taste test
Fuel Your 10k Hours Breakfast Milk Drink
This milk drink is designed to be an alternative to a solid breakfast, with less than one per cent fat per helping. Each 330ml carton contains 20g of protein – from skimmed milk and soya protein – and 5g of fibre as well as vitamins A, B1, B6 and C, niacin and folic acid, all of which Fuel Your 10K Hours says helps to support active lifestyles.
We tested the caramel latte flavour (the drink is also available in chocolate and strawberry) and found it to be really tasty, especially when chilled. The coffee content is only one per cent so there’s not really a caffeine kick but there is 36.4g of sugar in each drink, which is comparable to a can of cola and gives a limited buzz and the inevitable crash a while later.
We found the drink less effective at satisfying hunger than solid food, but we were able to start training straight after getting it down and at 297kcal, it’s not a bad way to get some calories in before your morning session.
