Podium Peppermint Bark Whey Protein

Protein: 25g

Calories: 120 kcal

Carbs: 2g

Fat: 1g

Sizes available: 910g

At first, there was a sense of confusion and scepticism when I heard the flavour of Peppermint Bark. Would I be consuming a tree-scented drink after putting myself through physical exertion? I needn’t have worried.

I consumed this protein powder following a six-hour cardio competition, which really took the energy from me; muscles depleted and in need of serious resuscitation, mentally sluggish and the onset of cramps and soreness setting in.

With recovery immediately on my mind, I sank into this minty concoction and was amazed by the smoothness and texture, the flavour eclipsing all preconceptions I may have had. Within hours, I was back on my feet and feeling fresh.

Podium, one of the fastest growing brands currently on the market, is the brainchild of Mat Fraser, five-time CrossFit Games champion, and award-winning documentarians and CrossFit HQ media team alum Heber Cannon and Marston Sawyers (aka the “Buttery Bros”). Expect to see Podium literally on top soon enough.

Calories: 114 kcal

Carbs: 1.8g

Fat: 1.9g

Sizes available: 1kg, 2.5kg, 5kg

If you want tried and trusted, great nutritional benefits and assured premium quality, My Protein is a no-brainer. 

But I’m sure you are probably wondering why we associate cinnamon with Christmas anyway.

Well, although cinnamon is not just for Christmas, it is at this time of year that people seem to enjoy its spicy warmth even more. Along with nutmeg, ginger and cloves, cinnamon is a definitive Christmas scent. There’s not much more to it than that!

Although this protein powder may be too sweet for some, there’s no doubting its wholesome flavour and the festive feeling it evokes. Just maybe stick to one scoop!

One for the vegans out there, this scrumptious festive treat packs a bioavailable and digestible vegan protein blend with protein from the sprouted seeds of different superfoods.

Drawing inspiration from the beloved Austrian Christmas Cookie, this protein blend offers a delightful aroma and taste reminiscent of freshly ground almonds, vanilla, and butter. The remarkable aspect is that it is entirely vegan, providing a plant-based alternative with the same captivating flavours.

The natural flavours really stand out here. It’s the ideal choice for vegan protein lovers looking to get a festive fix.

Sizes available: 900g, 2010g

Top of the mornin’ to ya! Synonymous with Ireland, did you know Irish Creme was actually conceptualised in England? 

Nevertheless, its foundations are now firmly within Irish culture, often associated with Baileys, sparking the familiar flavour of whiskey to brush over the tongue.

Now, imagine that cosy, festive taste, minus the nasty alcohol, packed with a hefty dollop of protein and low in calories. Supplement company Per4m has truly come up with the goods this Christmas with their new addition.

The biggest compliment I can give is that I LOVED the taste, and I’m not a huge fan of Baileys or similar products. Upon finishing a workout, the blend was the perfect antidote to set me on the path to recovery.

If you want to be transported to a dimly lit, character-infused pub nestled within the bustling streets of Dublin – perhaps accompanied by the soundtrack of acoustic chimes – then this Irish Creme offering is the protein powder for you this festive period.

Ghost High Protein Hot Cocoa Milk Chocolate

Nutritional information (per serving):

Protein: 20g

Calories: 130 kcal

Carbs: 7g

Fat: 2g

Sizes available: 533g

Tis the szn! This seasonal High Protein Hot Cocoa Mix Milk Chocolate offering from Ghost is a delightful blend of milk chocolate and Swiss chocolate flavors. The result? A harmonious fusion of strong and bold tastes.

Staying true to its name, the Hot Cocoa flavur is pure and rich, and the addition of mini marshmallows adds a luscious sweetness and unique texture to the whey protein.

It’s truly impressive how Ghost has replicated the beloved Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa mix flavor. I mean, who doesn’t love the thought of marshmallows and gains all in one?!

Nutritional information (per serving):

Protein: 30g

Calories: 468 kcal

Carbs: 81.37g

Winter. It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for bulking! After months of watching what you eat to maintain a sense of leanness throughout the warmer months, it’s fair to say a lot of us decide – knowingly or unknowingly – put on a few pounds over the festive season.

That’s why this protein powder from The Bulk Protein Company is an ideal supplement to take to get the perfect bulk. It’s the most calorific and nutritionally dense option on our list, and packs a festive punch with the scrumptious gingerbread flavour.

Do you want to resemble the buffest gingerbread in town this Christmas? Look no further.
