I’d always dreamt of being able to get a weight gainer in fruity flavours associated with BCAAs and pre-workout supplements so that I could have a refreshing mass-gain shake.

But I reckoned that the often gritty texture of milk-based proteins like whey and casein made this feat impossible. Well, it turns out that with the release of Myprotein Clear Whey Mass Gainer, I’ve been proven wrong, and my weight gainer dreams have come true!

So how does the combination of whey protein, MCTs, and carbohydrates work? I decided to do a full Myprotein Clear Whey Gainer review to find out. So if you want to learn more about the taste, mixing, and effectiveness of this unique weight gainer (or should I say Whey Gainer?), read on!

Myprotein Clear Whey Gainer Nutrition Information

When I saw that Myprotein was offering Clear Whey Gainer in fruity flavours like Apple, Pineapple, and Raspberry lemonade, I thought that the calorie content would be much lower than usual for a mass gainer so that they could achieve a smooth and refreshing shake.

As you’ll find out in this Myprotein Mass Gainer review, I was quite surprised to learn that each 132g serving (about 2.5 heaped scoops) has 483 calories!

If you’re the kind of person who isn’t overly keen on thick, milky protein shakes and mass gainers, then you’re going to love this Clear Weight Gainer because the shakes are light and refreshing, making it really easy to consume those extra calories.

Per serving, Myprotein Clear Whey Weight Gainer contains the following nutrition:

  • 483 calories
  • 37g of protein

Myprotein Clear Whey Mass Gainer Ingredient Quality

Clear Whey Gainer from Myprotein is a bit different to your average weight gainer, not just in taste and flavours, but in its ingredients and formulation as well. You’ll see what I mean in a sec.

Carbohydrate Blend

While some gainers make use of oats for carbohydrates, this is never going to work for a fruity-flavoured mass gainer like Clear Whey Gainer.

So instead, Myprotein uses a combination of potato starch and maltodextrin, both of which are easy to digest and mix with the other ingredients, such as whey hydrolysate and MCTs.

These carbs provide easy-to-drink calories that will help you to achieve the energy surplus that you need to bulk up and gain weight.

Plus, if you drink Clear Whey Gainer after a workout, the carbohydrates will provide efficient glycogen resynthesis so that your muscles can start recovery ASAP.

Whey Protein Hydrolysate

The Myprotein Clear Whey Gainer scoop

As it has barely any fat or carbs, whey protein hydrolysate is the leanest form of whey protein, making it ideal for a shake like Clear Whey Gainer, which provides convenient liquid calories with excellent mixability.

Compared to whey concentrate, which can often have a thicker texture as well, whey protein hydrolysate digests much more quickly, meaning that the amino acids can reach your bloodstream faster and get your muscles growing sooner.

In this sense, Myprotein Clear Whey Mass Gainer is definitely a premium product because it contains an extremely pure protein in whey hydrolysate, which wastes no time in getting to work. 

It’s the same story with Myprotein Advanced Weight Gainer, except that it has more traditional flavours like chocolate and vanilla.

Fat From MCTs

Medium-chain triglycerides digest quicker than regular fats, meaning that they provide your body with a rapid and easy-digested source of energy for both workouts and weight gain.

You can see a theme developing here.

The protein, carbs, and fats contained within the Clear Whey Gainer formula all digest easily and quickly, which enables the mixture to be smooth and fruity rather than gritty and milky.

Creatine Monohydrate

If there’s one supplement that will reliably increase your strength and muscle mass, it’s creatine monohydrate.

With decades of research backing its benefits, creatine will enable you to push yourself harder in the gym and set new PRs.

A 3-gram dose is pretty good, although some people might do better with 5 grams per day. If this is you, you could double up on your Clear Whey Gainer shakes or simply take a couple of grams of extra creatine with your mass gainer.

Digestive Enzyme Blend

So many mass gainers flood their formulas with carbs and protein and completely forget about how those calories are actually going to be digested and utilised for weight gain.

Myprotein has been in the supplement business for a long time, and they understand the importance of creating a well-rounded formula.

So the inclusion of a digestive enzyme blend is a welcome addition to Clear Whey Gainer and— along with the smooth texture and fruit flavour—is probably one reason why Clear Whey Weight Gainer doesn’t sit as heavy on your stomach as your average mass gainer.

Vitamins & Minerals

By themselves, vitamins and minerals aren’t going to do much for your muscle-building goals and athletic ambitions.

Yet, no gym-goer should overlook the importance of good micronutrition because consuming enough vitamins and minerals creates a healthy foundation from which your body can effectively increase its physical performance and levels of muscle mass.

For example, magnesium contributes to proper muscle functioning and recovery, which is important for anyone who exercises regularly.

Zinc has similar benefits, helping your muscles to repair after a workout while contributing to healthy testosterone levels.

Then you have vitamin C, which helps to strengthen your immune system and ensure that you can recover from your workouts and other physical stressors.

Myprotein Clear Whey Weight Gainer Taste & Mixability

Personally, I quite like a milky protein shake and mass gainer, but I know this isn’t the case for everyone.

So if you don’t like gulping thick, gritty weight gainers, then you’re (most likely) going to love Myprotein Clear Whey Mass Gainer because it’s so easy to mix and drink.

Clear Whey Gainer has much better mixability than a typical mass gainer, and the texture is really smooth as well. So if you want a clump-free weight-gaining shake, then Clear Whey Gainer is a great choice.

I’d say that the flavour (I got apple) is a fair bit sweeter than usual, but it’s not sweet in the sense of being artificial. Rather, the drinks taste really refreshing and will be some of the easiest liquid calories that you consume in your life.

While there are loads of positive Myprotein Clear Whey Gainer reviews, not everyone is going to like the flavours because the taste is subjective. But this goes for any weight gainer. 

So all you can do is give it a try for yourself, something that’s made much easier and more affordable with the Clear Whey Gainer samples that you can buy.

Myprotein Clear Whey Weight Gainer Price

Myprotein is known for its low prices, and while Clear Whey Gainer—I suppose because of its uniqueness—isn’t the cheapest of Myprotein's supplements, it's still good value for money if you’re seeking a shake that’s refreshing and sweet rather than bland and heavy on the stomach.

There’s always some kind of discount at Myprotein, so I doubt you’ll have to pay full price for Clear Whey Gainer. This is especially true if you subscribe (at your chosen delivery frequency) to the supplement.

One bag contains 15 servings, so around two weeks' supply if you have one shake per day. You could always order two bags in two different flavours if you want to keep your shakes exciting throughout the month, which is what I like to do when I’m bulking and consuming a lot of calories.

Considering all of the benefits discussed in this Clear Whey Gainer review, I think that this unique mass gainer is definitely worth the price, which really isn’t that steep for a supplement of this quality.

Who Is Myprotein Clear Whey Gainer For?

I’d say that Myprotein Clear Whey Gainer is best suited for someone who wants a change from the thick, often gritty mass gainers that they may have consumed in the past.

Also, if you want a mass gainer that’s really easy to consume and quite refreshing, then Clear Whey Gainer from Myprotein is also a good choice.

Additionally, if you want a gainer with premium quality protein (whey hydrolysate) and other muscle-building ingredients like creatine, I definitely recommend giving Clear Whey Gainer a try, especially at the current low price.

Who Is Myprotein Clear Whey Gainer Not For?

If you find the idea of drinking an apple or raspberry lemonade flavoured mass gainer really weird and off-putting, then Clear Whey Gainer probably isn’t for you.

As refreshing as I personally found the weight gainer, some people prefer to stick with tried and tested protein shake flavours like chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla.

Also, if you insist on taking your creatine separately, don’t get Myprotein Clear Whey Mass Gainer because each serving has 3g of creatine monohydrate.

Finally, if you’re looking for a mega-calorie gainer, Clear Whey Gainer probably isn’t for you either because it “only” has 483 calories per serving. 

Obviously, if you have a really high calorie requirement, you could just double up on Clear Whey Gainer servings to get additional calories. Still, The Gainer From Myprotein, while definitely not a mega-calorie gainer, does have more calories than Clear Whey Mass Gainer.

Is Myprotein Clear Whey Mass Gainer Worth Trying?

As I said throughout this Myprotein Clear Whey Gainer review, this mass gainer is very different to the rest because of its fruity flavours and refreshing taste.

So if you’re fed up with gulping down thick and creamy mass gainers and fancy an exciting change, then I definitely recommend getting a bag of Myprotein Clear Whey Mass Gainer so that you can try it for yourself.

I never thought that it would be possible to combine whey protein and carbs with such fruity flavours, but Myprotein has proved that it’s possible, and I have to say, they’ve done a great job with Clear Whey Gainer.
