yep, I agree- you can always find some fruit or something to add to an icky protein powder to make it a reasonably good smoothie. You need the fuel anyway-- most the time on LiveFit, my post-workout smoothies were my highest calorie meal (300-400 cals).

Agree on the banana and peanut butter(the best!) and also suggest strawberries or instant coffee for chocolate flavored ones.

Oh no, sorry, the boyfriend and I bought that awhile ago and ended up not finishing it. Ick is right. May have just been the one we chose but it was tough to consume. Maybe try adding banana and/or peanut butter. They always make things better:)

I *still* have the same bag from Costco from LAST summer. it lasts forever (I do smaller serving sizes than the measuring cup it comes with as I get plenty of protein and other powders are only 21-24g protein per serving).
I don't think mixing in coffee is a no no, I think its allowed on Jamie's diet (guess this means I forgot enough I need to look again).

I have seen that powder at Vitamin Shoppe. I am still pretty much a not-mixing with other stuff kind of gal. Just started back with the powder. I am using stuff from Costco. Can't beat the price:)

I am using Nectar vanilla or chocolate. I either mix it with 4 oz of skim milk/4 oz of water, or make a cup of coffe, let it get cold, and mix it in for quick breakfast-probably bad but is like a latte or mocha. Not sure I'm reading it right but maybe 0 for cholesterol. I haven't done a lot of blending them with other things-may start trying though

I use Cytosport vanilla but I almost ALWAYS add stuff and make it full meal. The only time I drink it with only almond milk or water is when I'm rushed or really need to limit my calories. I almost always add fruit, but often only use water not soy or almond milk. I am really grooving on my protein smoothies....

I used up the Designer Whey I had in my cabinet but it really wasn't what I needed. I went to GNC and thankfully they were having a sale! I ended up with their brand Whey Protein Amp 60 in Vanilla and Chocolate; it came with samples of some other stuff (creatine, energy booster and something else I'm not sure about). The Vanilla is a tad sweet for me but it's doable; I add it to water. I tried the Chocolate last night and added it to plain rice milk, which in my opinion, tastes like watered down fat free milk on it's own. The result was uh-may-zing! It tasted like I had added powdered Nestle Quick to full-fat milk, yum! I have now found my sweet tooth fix.

I'll continue to look around, but it comes down to convenience, price and nutrients. The sugar, carbs and cholesterol are all minimal in the Amp 60. The suggested serving size is 3 scoops BUT I only do one per drink.

I use the EASŪ 100% Whey Protein - Chocolate or Vanilla. I put it in Almond Milk or Lactose free milk and a hand full of strawberries and blend it up. Tastes really good. I think it has 50 mg of cholesterol per scoop!

Have to give that one a try IAMSHE-RA. Actually quite shocked by how much cholesterol is in mine. Bad when I have to throw an extra shake in. BF bought some pure protein this weekend. Trying out Vega to see if I have any reactions. It is so darn expensive though.

I love Isopure Perfect Zero Carb Creamy Vanilla. No carbs, no sugar, low cholesteral. Tastes great.

I use PURE PROTEIN and I take it with almond milk, 1 tsp cinnamon, and .5 tsp pumpkin spice. The taste is great; add ice and even without ice is great tasting.

I use Cytosport 100% Whey. Bought it at Costco. Good price. It is a thinner drink, which I like, but it is sweet. I put less water in it and do it kind of like a shot. I am happy with it and it doesn't cause stomach pain for me, which usually happens with whey powders.

I currently have Designer Whey Protein and am happy with the taste-no chalky after taste! I simply just add it to plain rice milk. BUT the cholesterol is a little high 60mg per scoop.

What does everyone use?
