I avoid this problem for myself in two ways: I add yogurt to the smoothie and banana. (though I do cut the amount of protein powder in half when I do this for both calories and protein overloading reasons) and it keeps me full for a good 2-3 hours.

I used to use the 100% whey sweetened with stevia and still do if I just need to up my protein intake but if I want it as a meal I found a double bonded goat whey protein in chocolate and vanilla. I use chocolate and mix it with coffee it is fantastic. It is thicker and very filling. Mix it up a few minutes before drinking it and the protein expands and is like a shake it is yummy, too. Completely naturally sweetened and organic to boot. I order mine through Tropical Traditions online and they have great lip balms, too. If you join their mailing list they send out specials for free shipping periodically and I stock up when they do.

i used to never eat breakfast on workdays before i joined . i bought muscle milk's 100%whey protein powder in the chocolate flavor at costco. 27g of protein-and it's chocolate! also comes in vanilla, though. you could add it to cereal, ice cream, yogurt, etc. but i just shake it up in a bottle and drink on my commute. it keeps me full 'til lunch!
We are not big breakfast eaters at our house so I have started making fruit smoothies in the mornings. I cut up all the ingredients and put in the blender in the frig over night. Then in morning all I have do to is add the ice and the liquid and blend away. The issue? I find that after an hour or so, I am starving! Anyone have any experience with protein powder or maybe even adding some slimfast or ovaltine or something?
