There are a plethora of drinks out there, and plenty of them claim to be healthy. But Bolthouse Farms actually backs it up with their all-natural beverages, my favorite being their Perfectly Protein Mocha Cappuccino (despite the weird adverb usage). From their site:

Our Perfectly Protein Mocha Cappuccino is a smooth blend of 100% Arabica coffee, premium cocoa and pure Madagascar vanilla extract. We carefully selected Arabica coffee beans for their distinctive, full-bodied character and delicate caramel aftertaste. For a rich and creamy consistency, low-fat milk and whey protein are gently combined to complete this delicious blend. Perfectly Protein Mocha Cappuccino is truly an experience any coffee connoisseur will appreciate. Only the best ingredients go into our beverages, and the same should go for your body.

Damn straight! (Who writes this shit?) Anyway, it has caffeine in it, as any self respecting coffee product should. But while most protein shakes taste like chalky mucus, this stuff is akin to a Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino. However, the difference is in the nutritional information (yeah, some of us read that stuff).

Bolthouse (16 oz.):360 calories, 19 g of protein, 2.5 g fat, plus vitamin C, B6, B12
Starbucks (16 oz.): 320 calories, 10 g of protein, 5 g fat, no vitamins

Yes, they both have high amounts of sugar, but at least you're getting something in return (vitamins, and twice the calcium) when you drink the Bolthouse Farms product. Highly recommended. If only I knew what the hell a Bolthouse is.
