Max’s Protein Bars
With a new protein bar company appearing on the wellness scene every week, what makes Max’s protein bars different? Well, for a start, they actually taste good (sorry Quest, but there’s a new bar in town and they are DELICIOUS!) What started out as two brothers experimenting with flavours and protein, has turned into a yummy product that tastes as good as it looks. What’s more, the ingredients list is actually understandable: no complicated E numbers or emulsifiers here, just pure, natural ingredients. We’re particular fans of the white chocolate and raspberry bar – so delicious on-the-go. Sadly not suitable for vegans, but all bars are gluten-free.

Cold Brew Coffee by Califia
What’s better than coffee? A coffee that loves you back. Dairy-free, cold brewed, low calorie and made with almond milk, this is the new age coffee we’ve all been waiting for. Offering a variety of flavours, from mocha to espresso and salted caramel (yes please!), these guys sure know their stuff and never compromise on taste. We also love their beautiful bottles: the packaging is just the cutest and the coffee speaks for itself!

Gut-loving, refreshing and delicious, we predict that this tea will be big on the London health scene this summer.
