I hated opti with sugar free syrups. it just made the shakes more sweet. I used baking extracts and i felt it added great flavour and covered up the protein taste and smell..

I am on opti now and have found adding cocoa powder very good. Also have chilled decaf coffee and added that to the chocolate, it really enhances the chocolate flavor.  Tried strawberry jello powder in the vanilla but found it too sweet. Also have peppermint extract. Added vanilla extract to the vanilla, it was good.
