Healthiest and tastiest is a homemade protein shake.
Here you go:
"Common ingredients in protein shakes include skim milk, almond milk, soy milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, eggs, nut butter, your protein shake.
1 Select a base for the shake. The most common base for any shake is skim milk. You can also use almond or soy milks. An option for a thicker shake is to use 4 oz. (118 ml) of milk and 4 oz. (118 ml) of plain yogurt.
2 Choose a protein-rich ingredient. Cottage cheese is one of the most popular ingredients because it contains the casein protein, which is a long-lasting protein. Another popular ingredient in protein shakes is a raw egg. Raw eggs carry some risk of salmonella, so it is a good idea to wash the egg shells thoroughly before breaking the egg. Another commonly used high-protein ingredient is nut butter.
3 Chop up 1 cup (150 to 250 g) of fruit for consistency and nutritional value. Although it contains between 1 and 2 g of protein, a banana is the most common ingredient because it adds a thick consistency to the shake. Add your favorite fruit, such as apricots, berries or oranges. Most fruits are fairly low in protein, but watermelon contains approximately 1.77 g per large slice. Canned pumpkin also contains about 2.7 g of protein per cup (180 g).
4 Measure 3 tbsp. (15 g) of oatmeal for extra protein. Although this is not an essential step, it will add 3 extra g of protein. You can also add 1 tbsp. of powdered bran for the same effect.
5 Drink the shake immediately. The nutrient content is higher when the ingredients are fresh. Your shake should contain between 30 and 50 g of protein."
