Best / Worst Tasting protein shakes?
I would love to hear everyones opinions on the best and worst tasting protein shakes?
I'm trying to increase my protein and although I LOVE my meat I just cant eat enough yet to get all 80- 100 g that i need in that way yet.
So far I cant say that I love any of them but I can tolerate Champion Banana scream.. and although I do love chocolate.. I didnt care for the champion chocolate.. tasted bitter to me.
I tried a peach shake and it was pretty nasty.. I tried champion tropical sunrise and it was tolerable.
I tried some of the nectar ones and took one sip and threw them away.. ahhhh. I need help.
It makes it more difficult that since surgery I have more discerning taste and If its not REALLY good I just cant eat it without vomitting.
What shakes do yall like or dislike?

The ones I tolerate in cans are Atkins dark chocolate royale (something like that) and anything in a banana flavor.
Muscle Milk Lite (I've tried vanilla and chocolate) are putrid to me, as are Slimfast. I thought Isopure was pretty gross as well.
i've done a few of the protein shots. they have 45 grams of protein each. they don't taste great-kinda tart, but if you need to get your protein in they will work in a pinch.
i've also begun to add unflavored protein powder to my soups and i can't even tell a difference.
Since you asked..
Ones I like
Nectar Latte Cappuccino (Vitamin Shoppe)
Nectar Sweet Chocolate Truffle (Vitamin Shoppe)
Body Fortress Chocoalte, Strawberry or Cookies & Cream (From Walmart)
Zero Carb Isopure Banana/Pineapple/Orange powder (Vitamin Shoppe)
Matrix Vanilla (I rarely use plain vanilla but this one is ok)

True Protein Orange Creamsicle, Chocolate Coconut, Banana Bash
Dymatize Elite Cafe Mocha
Unjury Chicken Soup
HealthSmart Hot Drink mixes from NashuaNutrition.com
