Ditto that. If you blend two scoops with two cups of milk and a little ice it tastes great!

It doesnt really matter to me, they all taste the same. I usually add a couple of scoops of ice cream, and some fruit to the mix, so that takes most of the bad flavor away.

If you add soem high GI fruit to it that would be great for after workout.

since i'm lactose intollerant, it's really hard to make a shake taste good.... no milk.

But I did use one of the vanilla shakes mixed with half sugarfree redbull, and half water. It was orange julius like. not too shabby

The best shake that I have tried yet would have to be CytoSport Muscle Milk, which also happens to have Zero Lactose(for those of you who are lactose intollorant). It tastes great with water(I never use milk), has a lot of flavors(strawbery/banana, peach/mango, orange cream, etc...), and has 32g of protein in water. Here is a breif list of contents:

Calories in water: 348 in milk: 638
Total fat: 18g
Cholesterol: 3mg
Sodium: 200mg
Potassium: 595mg
Total Carbs: 12g
Protein: 32g

My friend that is a trainer turned me on to it, and I will never take another chocolate or vanilla shake again(they do offer them if you happen to be fanatic). Look it up on www.bodybuilding.com for more info and flavors.

that's what I have. I tried the ON strawberry but it was pretty damn nasty, can't complain about the vanilla though.

I like Designer Whey protein and you can get it off of E-bay for Super cheap, around $5.40 a pound. I usually go through about 5 pounds a month.

if you don't want to do the milk thing I have tried it a few other ways. Water is a bit hard to do, but water with gatoraide powder (orange) tastes bad ass but has lots of carbs from sugars , but not as bad as other worse sugars. Add some creatine and you have a great post workout shake that will attempt to pump the goods into your cells quickly.

Another is to mix with water and also mis in a teaspoon or so of Strawberry/bananna Lousianne Smoothie powder. that is good too!

Pro V60 by Labrada. I've spent tons of money on protein, trying all different brands hoping to find one that tasted decent, and to this day have not found one better than the Pro V60. Each serving has 60g of protein and only 12g of carbs. It tastes like a dessert if you put it in the blender with milk and ice or even if you mix it with just water it still tastes damn good.

I use Optimum Nutrition. Try adding peanut butter for flavor or fruit. I like bananas if they are around(cheap).

Matt- alan mixes (above) with water/ice/ and either PB or a banana. he drinks it, i don't know how good it is.

I mix the same thing (strawberry flavor) with skim milk, frozen strawberries and raspberries and a banana. not bad.

taste is determined by what you mix it with most the time. If you mix it with water, its usually not that great, but if you be creative and add it to what you like, youll get pleasant results usually. unless you add it to beer or something stupid like that. I used to add my protein to some soy milk, with cappaccino flavoring(the powder shit) and it tasted kick ass. Or i'd mix it with milk and some sugar.
