I like the whey protein shakes, too. I use Designer Whey brand (which is incidentally the same brand our Dr. uses). I don't add fruit, although I love fruit, because the sugars really run the carb count up. I used to make the shakes with almond or coconut milk, which still tastes better to me - but again, runs the carbs up. Instead, I add some sugar-free DaVinci syrup to the mix, and it tastes yummy! DaVinci makes an incredible array of flavored syrups. I love the blueberry or pancake syrup, or banana...German chocolate cake... lots of delectables. And no carbs. =D
If I go for fruit, I eat a small portion of it straight up, and let my protein shakes stand alone.

...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
