WARP 9 Weight Loss Shakes
Recently, on an unusually warm October day, we had the opportunity to try the new WARP 9 Weight Loss Shakes with Green Tea and Hoodia from DynaPure Nutrition...

As a fan of the old (and now discontinued) Keto Shakes, we were looking forward to this new shake mix developed by the former Keto formulator, and we all agreed that he did an amazing job on this formulation. These shakes taste really good... very ice cream-like.

There are many differences between this shake and the original Keto Shakes. Most notably, these are the first shakes to contain Green Tea and Hoodia Extracts that help boost metabolism and reduce your appetite. They also contain glutamine, taurine and high fiber, which, along with the Hoodia, help reduce cravings for carbs and support healthy blood sugar.

It certainly worked for us... Most of us noticed the extra appetite reduction after drinking the Dynapure shakes and we didn't feel hungry for hours. They're caffeine free, so you can use them anytime... even as a late night snack.
WARP 9 Weight Loss Shakes
The WARP 9 Shakes also contain a lower fat content than the Keto Shakes, which add more flexibility when making different recipes, yet they still contain the thick and rich frothy-ness we have all come to like with the higher fat shakes.

Thankfully, they contain no sugar alcohols, nor polydextrose and they're perfect for those with sensitive stomachs. It contains no soy, and no trans-fats. They're Splenda-sweetened and even come fortified with 23 Vitamins and Minerals.

Initially, DynaPure Nutrition is offering Vanilla and Chocolate, but we understand the company is poised to offer several new flavors (in line with the old Keto flavors) soon.

The package directions call for 1 scoop of shake mix blended with 8 ounces of cold water. This is a pretty common direction for nearly all shake mixes — and makes for the highest protein, least carb shakes you can achieve. The WARP 9 Shakes come in at just 2 grams of carbs in both Vanilla and Chocolate ice cream flavors and indeed they do taste like melted ice cream.

If you can handle a few extra carbs, then you'll definitely want to "play" with these shake mixes as "bases" for many creative possibilities.

By starting with crushed ice, then adding 5-6 ounces of water (I use a good spring water) and 3 ounces of light cream or half and half, you get an even creamier shake for only a couple of extra carb grams. We did that here, and got an even greater refreshing, frothy and tasty shake. But were we done? Oh, you know us... we experiment.

WARP 9 Weight Loss Shakes We made a batch of shakes by adding a capful of mint extract to the Chocolate flavor, and got a very "York Peppermint Patty" kind of taste. We made a Vanilla Mint as well, by making the shake with the new mint-flavored Metromint bottled water. It tasted like those creamy little After Dinner Mints.

With the Holidays approaching, we also decided to use the Warp 9 Vanilla base with DaVinci's Sugar Free Egg Nog Syrup (add a little nutmeg!) and with their Gingerbread Syrup for a really decadent taste. But don't stop with holiday flavors... get creative. Add strawberries to the blender! Or blueberries. Add Pineapple syrup, or Cherry. Have fun with these.

All in all, excellent mixes we highly recommend. Each can contains 11 servings of mix and each serving contains 21 grams of protein, 2 grams of carbs, 5 grams of fiber and just 4 grams of fat. You can get them online at DynaPure Nutrition.   Go on... you know you want them!  :)
