This is a great protein powder. I was looking for an alternative to sweetened coffee creamers and now use just one tablespoon of the chocolate or chocolate peanut butter and it is great. Also good in smoothies. - Judy B.
If you've been looking for a new protein powder to speed up your recovery, this is it.
This protein powder sets itself apart because it uses high quality milk, few ingredients, and natural sweeteners to provide an optimal blend of amino acids for muscle building and recovery. They create the whey isolate with milk purchased from trusted dairy farmers in their own facilities without using artificial flavors, colors, or additives.
This is a good option for elite athletes because Ascent products are third party tested and Informed Sport Certified, meaning each batch is tested to ensure it is free from banned substances.
Another unique aspect of Ascent’s whey protein powder is that –along with 25g of protein– one scoop contains 5.7 grams of leucine, an amino acid that is essential for muscle synthesis. Research has shown that consuming at least 3 grams of leucine post-workout can improve muscle building and optimize recovery. We highly recommend adding this product to your recovery regimen!
What're my options?
This protein comes in nifty to-go packages for when traveling, on the road, or going to your workout. It also comes in a standard 2lb bag. They have two classic flavors: Chocolate and Vanilla Bean.

How to use it?
We like to add one scoop to 10-12 oz. of water or our favorite smoothie for a grab-and-go post-workout recovery option. Because 1 scoop is packed with 25 grams of protein, this protein powder is great to add to baking mixes, oatmeal, or even coffee to a pack an extra protein punch into your favorite foods.
