In a ready to drink shake I like the Pure Protein as well. I usually keep a few around here, for just in case.......

My favorite powders are from Syntax -- both the nectars and matrix. 100 Cal. 23g protein and 0-4 carbs depending on the flavor.
My favorite ready to drink are the pure protein 35 and the RTD51. The 100 Cal vanilla muscle milk makes a decent iced latter.

A suggestion for using Jay Robb brand whey protein. It says to mix with 12 oz liquid - but I think it tastes better with just 8 oz of liquid. Good Stuff!

I like Designer Whey brand. I have made it with coconut milk, almond milk, and just water, and all taste fine to me. I sometimes buy the vanilla and add SF DaVinci syrups for variety.

I like Optimum Nutrition's whey protein. I usually buy the vanilla, because I can flavor it with anything... cocoa powder, peanut butter, berries. I generally add in some cream, maybe an egg yolk, some coconut oil, some MCT oil, if I have it. Sometimes I add it to a little diet soda and add some crushed ice, and it tastes a little like an ice cream soda.
I've found that most protein powders really need to be mixed with a blender (I just use a stick blender, and it works fine) with a little ice added, to be really at their best.

If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got.

I use EAS Protein Powder occasionally for breakfast. Very low in carbs and is made with Stevia. I mix it with unsweetened almond milk which has no sugar or carbs. Milk actually has quite a bit of sugar in it so be sure you read the labels. It always amazes me how much sugar lurks in products we have always deemed to be healthy! I have also heard that Jay Robb is a very good brand and I plan to try that one.

I don't like any of the powdered types, not so much because of taste but because of questionable ingredients. I will sometimes make a whey protein shake from the whey that's left over from yogurt making. I'll mix it with some berries or other fruit and it's very refreshing.

I use a brand called Jay Robb - I get it at Vitamin Shoppe.

It's sweetened with Stevia. Jay Robb is in to all natural things. Low in calories and carbs.

I drink a protein shake every morning for breakfast. I use "Precision Engineered Protein Isolate" - I get it at Vitamin World. It's very good. Chocolate is good, I only buy the Vanilla though because I can add cocoa to it to make chocolate if I choose.

It's the best tasting I've ever used..

I use one scoop (130 calories, 2 carbs, 1 fiber, 30 grams protein) And I use 2T HWC and about 1/2 cup either club soda or almond milk (I don't use regular cows milk) and whiz it together in blender. sometimes I'll add 1/2 cup berries (raspberries, strawberries or blueberries) It's very good. And if you want to do it plain, it's very good that way too - I just like to experiment a bit. Still keeps breakfast under about 250-300 calories with 30 grams protein.

How many fellow low-carbers do protein shakes/powders/bars, and can you recommend anything that actually tastes good!? The few I've tried give me flashbacks of slim fast when I was 12! LOL....oh the agony!
