Does a Tasty Protein Shake Exist?

jarublajarubla Posts: 2,329 ✭✭✭✭✭
And before any if you miscreants suggest that protein drink I am talking about the health shake/drink.

I tried this one today and it tastes like most of the others--chalk. 

I have only found three I would call tolerable. Sun Warrior, Muscle Milk banana, and Ensure vanilla.

Anyone else have a recommendation or two? My tolerance for banana runts flavored shakes is getting a bit stretched, lol

    How about a steak in a blender?

    The Muscle Milk Cookies and Cream was pretty good, although I haven't taken protein since my Marine days so I don't know what it tastes like now.

    Bob, that would depend on the steak!

    It would break my heart to do that to a grass fed dry aged porterhouse.

    I buy the Twinlab 100% Whey Protein. It's the best tasting one I've found, not that I've tried a lot. I like the vanilla and bought a small package of cookies and cream to try recently. Their chocolate one needs work. Only 25g of protein per serving, though. (I double it)
    I know there's higher protein content out there, but I continue to buy this one because I know I like the flavor.

    Also, this is the powder, in case I didn't make that clear. Not sure if I've had a ready to drink shake that I've liked.

    Along what Charlie said, why not make your own?

    agree with peter and charlie --- you ever try making your own @jarubla ?
    lots more options if you go that route. 

    some good recipe ideas here: http://dailyburn.com/life/recipes/quick-easy-protein-shake-recipes/ 
    that banana oat, blueberry mango and chocolate pb are pretty damn good.
    make a big batch then freeze the extra....can't go wrong.

    Thanks John. I usually add a banana and/or strawberries. Going to try a few of these.

    You're welcome Charlie but I can't take credit for that one. 

    Wife has been on a "health kick" this summer (therefore I've been on 1 too lol).....and she's been finding all sorts of recipes from that site. 

    If it wasn't for her I'd be sticking with strawberry milkshakes and chocolate malts :D

    Muscle pharm combat powder. I put the cinnamon bun in my plain oatmeal. Great morning breakfast
