All protein powders are not the same so you must read labels. Some have as little as 6 or 7 grams of protein and others a lot more. Some are sweetened with artificial sweeteners and others have none. My local health food store always has someone to help you when you have questions so yours might, too. I have 2 different kinds I buy - one is sweetened which I add to my fruit smoothies even though I hide some veggies in there as well. The other one is unsweetened which I had to vegetable smoothies but to all other kinds of things as well such as spaghetti sauce, cereals, oatmeal, etc.

I make my own with the protein I buy at the fitness/nutrition store. I use water sometimes, soy milk sometimes and have put it in my morning coffee. U have a wide selection to choose from at gnc stores. Its all good, but my favorite is cookies and cream. 0 fat 0 sugar, 26 grams protein per scoop and a 110 calories. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Muscle Milk is a good protien shake and you can add frozen fruit to it. This is the one my doctor prescribed for me to use. It is low in sugar and high in protien. You can get it Walmart.
