Post Looking for a way to make a protein shake taste good.


Currently I am on a low carbohydrate diet, and I have just started taking protein shakes. I ran over to muscle mag and purchased a Designer Whey Strawberry flavoured protein supplement powder jug. However, because I am on a low carb diet, I must refrain from milk, and this is where it tastes horrible! It's too thin when i mix it with water (also hard to mix properly).

Can someone recommend something i can mix this strawberry supplment with that will make it taste good with water (or any liquid that is low in carbs, ie coffee with splenda). If not, lemme know if theres any low carb recipes for the choclate make, cus then i can just exchange this with choclate. Thanks!

Usually when you are mixing a power with a liquid if you use a hot (almost/or boiling works best) the powder will mix up better.

You could make it up a head of time and then chill it in the frige and drink it later when it is cold.

Good luck on your diet. I used to make Myoplex protein drinks for an old boss. I'd put a fresh banana, apple juice and ice in a blender. It made the drink thick, quite tasty and very filling. I wasn't watching my diet, but I'd drink a glass too. I hope you try it and like it.

Apple juice and fruit? Ouch. Serious sugar rush!

This guy's trying to watch his carb intake and those ingredients are incredibly fattening.

Hey, I'm no diet guru...just tried to offer a suggestion based on my experience. I know personally I'd rather natural sugar than chemical sugar additives that the body doesn't know how to get rid of. I know many people who diet and drink and eat foods with saccrian (sp?) and other unnatural things so when I used fresh fruit and natural apple juice I didn't see the harm. I guess I can see your point though. Anyway, I'm sorry if the suggestion was not a good did make the shake tasty :/ I tried...
