    Overall Opinion:

    Overall, I give Nestle Boost High Protein Complete Nutritional Drink 1 out of 5 stars because I really don’t like this protein drink.

    It fell short in almost every single area for me and I wouldn’t buy it again.

    It’s oddly expensive for a product that’s low quality, in my opinion.

    I don’t like the ingredients that they use in this nutritional drink.

    The first three ingredients are water, corn syrup, and sugar.

    Those aren’t what I’m looking for in a protein drink, especially one that says it’s intended for lean muscle maintenance.

    It’s basically sugar water with some protein and vitamins thrown in.

    The main protein source is Milk Protein Concentrate and that’s not the best quality protein compared to others.

    It doesn’t taste good and gave me some belly pain and bloating after I drank it.

    It has milk and soy ingredients, so be mindful if you’re allergic or sensitive.

    I couldn’t find a guarantee for this product, which was also a bummer.

    Compared to other protein powders that focus on lean muscle, this one has higher amounts of calories, fat, carbs, and sugar.

    The few things I like are that it has 26 vitamins and minerals, it’s gluten free, and it’s super convenient.

    Also, be sure to refrigerate it after you open it and also drink it within 24 hours of opening.

    I just wasn’t impressed with this product and don’t think it’s a good option for maintaining muscle, especially lean muscle.

    Detailed Opinion:

    Ease of Use

    One of the only things I really like about Nestle Boost High Protein Complete Nutritional Drink is that it’s super easy to use.

    I’m a sucker for convenience and this drink is premade and prepackaged.

    You don’t have to stir, shake, or blend anything.

    You just grab the drink and go!

    They recommend chilling (not freezing) the drink first and to refrigerate after opening and also consume within 24 hours of opening it.

    Taste

    I tried this drink in the Chocolate Sensation flavor.

    I wouldn’t say there’s any sensation about it.

    It reminded me of the chocolate SlimFast shakes from however many years ago.

    It’s a very artificial taste and just wasn’t that good.

    Macro Analysis

    Every bottle has 15 grams of protein, 6 grams of fat, and 33 grams of carbohydrates.

    The bottle is 8 fl oz and represents 1 serving.

    There are 240 calories per bottle.

    I don’t like these macros, especially if you’re trying to maintain lean muscle (as it suggests).

    I would like to see some more grams of protein per bottle and also much fewer grams of carbohydrates.

    It also has a higher amount of fat and calories compared to other protein powders.

    If you’re looking to maintain lean muscle, we usually suggest using a low carb and calorie protein powder so you can focus on clean protein.

    Ingredient Drilldown

    I’m not a fan of the ingredients used in this drink.

    The first 3 ingredients are water, corn syrup, and sugar.

    It’s basically sugar water with some protein thrown in.

    It even suggests that it’s intended for maintaining lean muscle.

    Sugar and corn syrup aren’t exactly the staples of clean eating for lean muscle maintenance.

    It also has vegetable oil, which I really don’t like either.

    The main protein source is from Milk Protein Concentrate and a little further down the ingredient list is Soy Protein Isolate and Calcium Caseinate.

    Milk Protein Concentrate isn’t the highest quality protein and there are much better options out there.

    It does have 26 vitamins and minerals, which can be a plus for many looking for some additional essential nutrients.

    Some of the vitamins and minerals include: Vitamin A, K, B12, C, D, B6, E, Copper, Iron, Zinc, Calcium, Folic Acid, Magnesium, and Niacin.

    These drinks are gluten free but they do contain milk and soy ingredients.

    Side Effects

    I noticed some side effects when taking this drink.

    I had some bloating and belly pain and discomfort.

    It wasn’t fun at all.

    This drink contains milk and soy, so be careful if you’re allergic or sensitive to either of those.

    Best Uses

    This protein drink is intended to help with maintaining muscle.

    It even suggests supporting lean muscle in particular, however I don’t think this product is best suited for lean muscle maintenance.

    It has 15 grams of protein, which is decent as far as protein goes but it also has higher calories, fat, carbohydrates, and sugar compared to other protein powders.

    When focusing on lean muscle maintenance, we usually like to see those numbers much lower and focus more on clean protein.

    Price/Value

    The price of 6 bottles (each 8 fl oz) is $9.99.

    Each bottle has 15 grams of protein, so it works out to be 11.1 cents per gram of protein for the entire case of 6.

    This is definitely above average and really expensive.

    I don’t think it’s a good value for the price at all and I wouldn’t personally buy this product again.

    Guarantee

    I couldn’t find any sort of guarantee on Nestle’s website.

    This is a bummer.

    I also couldn’t find a guarantee on Walgreen’s website (which is where I purchased this product from).

    Be sure to check in with your specific retailer because they may have other options available to you such as at Amazon or Walmart.
