All of the protein shakes I've ever tried tasted bland and they had a really grainy texture... And that my friend is why they are nasty lol
I guess I could try some other ones. I just hope they aren't all grainy...
Tell us more about that. Why do they taste 'nasty'? Too sweet, not sweet enough, bland or what?
I've tried a lot of different kinds and brands of protein powder over the years and have settled on the ones that I like. I do NOT like any that are 'vanilla' or other 'berry' like flavors. At all. Too sweet and 'nasty'
The flavor/brand I like is Optimum Nutrition ("ON"), specifically 'ON Gold Standard Whey Chocolate'. I put two scoops of that in a blender with some ice, organic whole milk (or almond milk or coconut milk), and a tablespoon of peanut butter. Tastes great (to me). If I'm feeling the need for extra carbs, I'll toss in a whole banana. Tastes sort of like a banana split. Sometimes I'll leave out the peanut butter and put strawberries in it.
I also buy a generic unflavored whey protein in bulk. This is good for making a 'berry' smoothie. Two scoops of powder with ice, some milk or milk substitute, and blueberries and strawberries, maybe a banana. Very refreshing and not too sweet or 'synthetic' tasting.
I also do a bunch of other 'weird' things with protein powder but the above is enough for now. Suffice it to say, just because some of them suck toe jam doesn't mean they all do. Maybe you won't like any of them but you might find you do like some if you try them out. Obviously any one thing done too frequently is gona get 'old' so you have to experiment with different smoothie recipes. Hell, I even toss raw eggs in my smoothies but I understand most people find that kind of disgusting and potentially dangerous. [/quote]
