I love adding frozen berries to mine. I typically do: protein, frozen berries, greek yogurt, a splash of almond milk, and instead of water, I use cooled flavor tea. It gives it a nice additional taste. If I want a chocolate mint protein, I'd use the choc whey and add mint tea! Strawberry and chocolate, frozen strawberries and strawberry tea. It's an awesome no calorie way to add taste!
Every day is *the day.* Dream it. Live it. Love it.....with all your heart & soul.

A personal favorite is a scoop of chocolate whey protein (hemp protein also works well), half a frozen banana (MUST be frozen), a handful of frozen berries, and just enough water to blend. It'll make a very milkshake like concoction.
It's very much still in the "smoothie" line, I guess, but I find that when it is made with frozen fruit and just enough water to make sure the blender blade spins, it's a much more ice cream like texture and taste.

You can add your protein powder to just about anything you like! A friend adds a scoop of chocolate protein powder to 2 tbs of peanut butter and eats that with an apple (or she'll just lick the spoon). It's a bit of a calorie bomb, but if you're working out hard, it's a great recovery nibbler! :) (just make sure the peanut butter is natural with no additives. Even better? make your own!) :)
you can also add it to yogurt, cottage cheese, smoothies (chocolate banana smoothie!), oatmeal, sprinkle it on your cereal, mix it with fat free cream cheese and spread on a natural whole grain bagel half. You name it! I'm sure there's TONS more you can do too. :)

Yes you can definitely use it more than just with milk. You can get as creative as you want or willing to try. You could add it to oatmeal, egg whites, a little water and then a Tbsp of peanut butter, etc. . .
I'm in week 2 of eating clean and a die hard CHOCOHOLIC. I purchased some Whey Protein (chocolate) the other day. I've been doing the shakes for post workout "chocolate goodie"... and I'm wondering.. can I add this anything else besides ff milk???
