Help with protein shakes!!!

can anyone help me make my chocolate whey protein shakes taste better? They aren't too bad taste like watered down chocolate milk. But just would like them to taste a little better.

I used less milk or water (about half) and had to shake it in a thermos to mix well. Hope that helps!

Here's some recipes for protein shakes.  I think they all use protein powder but they could give you an idea about some different flavor profiles. vorite-protein-shake-recipes.html

Also, Torani and DaVince make about 25 flavors of SF syrups. Try those or some sf pudding (might be a little thick).  Lots of options once you find a shake that you can tolerate.

I make mine with milk, but some people don't want all those carbs.  Whether you do milk or water, try blending with ice and PB2.  Yummmmm!  I have that every night and eat it with a spoon.  :)

If you like a mocha flavor add a teaspoon of instant coffee and blend with ice.  I find this tastes like the Dairy Queen Moolate.  I usually add some splenda too.

With my Pure Protein 100% Whey Frosty Chocolate shake, I like to add skim milk (fat free), strawberries, cherries & green seedless grapes. It makes my protein drink taste good. I love it.

 Someone said they put unsweetened cocoa powder in their shakes.  I tried that and it's excellent.  Cuts the sweetness a bit and makes it richer.  I put a big spoonful in.  I suppose there is some fat in that.

Hello. I never had luck with the protein shakes that come in powdered form. I purchase the ones sold at GNC. No matter how much I blend the powered drinks, the consistency is never right so I stop trying. I usually drink my shake (they come in vanilla bean, strawberry and chocolate) in the morning to get it out of the way. The shakes are 25g protein per bottle.
