By the way I use the GNC 100% whey. I really dont think its the best though.
Best Tasting! Whey Protein
This is one of the best tasting whey protein shakes ive tried..
I like US Sport Power Protein and US Sport Power Burn. It is made with 100% whey, mixes easily, and tastes good.
I use Designer 100% Whey Protein powder, chocolate flavored.
But I find that I can never get it to fully dissolve. Whether I mix it with soymilk or water it just seems to clump instead of dissolve and mix....should I heat up the water or milk in order to get a better result?
When I started looking for a whey protein I found almost all of them had artificial colours, artificial flavours and artificial sweeteners in them. The only one I could find that had all natural ingredients was North Coast Naturals. It's 90% protein from whey. They also make soy protein and a hemp protein powder, both are organic and hemp is next on my list to try when my current batch runs out.
Sugarbaby, I put all my ingredients in a 1litre (2 quart) wide mouth mason jar and mix it with a wand blender. It mixes up smooth as silk that way and the wand blender can grind up almost anything.
I mix ON 100% Whey Tropical Punch in an empty water bottle, then add about half full of water and shake for a few seconds, then fill the rest of the bottle up, it mixes pretty well.
Ok, here is the details for my morning drink.
In a power blender starting with 2cups of water I put in a large handful of raw spinach, gogi berries or blue berries, and any other raw fruits and vegtables around. I add a hand full of oatmeal and any vitamin supplements that I am using (multi, ester-c, B, etc.) I blend this to a smooth drink. Then I add 1 scoop of US Sport Power Protien, and blend for a couple of seconds.
This carries me through the morning with no hunger, feeling great. Anitoxidants galore with vitamins and minerals with a whole grain. I just have not found anything else that makes my body feel so good in the morning.
Hey I use US Sport protein powder also. I really like it. good to see your post.
I use Designer Whey Protein. It doesnt taste that good but its pretty cheap and 1 scoop only has to be mixed with 3-6 oz of water. A lot of the protein shakes ive tried 1 scoop has to be mixed in with like 6-8 oz of water... Meaning its gonna be even harder to drink it all. I hate the stuff but 3oz of the mix is MUCH easier to drink than 8oz... Chug in go...
i hear good things bout the vanilla.. Im told to mix in a blender with milk and fruits and its good but i really duno...
the chocolate has good nutrition stats...
for example: 18 g of protein per scoop...again tho 1 scoop=approx 4 oz ....
100 calories per scoop 20 cals from fat..... 2g of fat... 1 g sat fat... 0g trans fat
60 mg cholesterol
170 mg potassium
3g carbs... .5g dietary fiber and 2g sugar
duno if that helps any...
BSN Lean Desserts are apparently amazing.
I am using Jarrow Whey chocolate powder right now- I bought it in Whole Foods when they were giving out samples of it mixed with almond milk. Tastes just like regular chocolate milk!
Jay Robb is my personal favorite. Amazzzzzing
Theres two you can choose from. Muscle Pharm Combat Powder. Tricle feeds your muscles protein for up to eight hours. very good taste. Good profile.
The other is Super Sport by Cellucor. Clean protein. Very little sodium. no fillers. Few calories. These two are the best
