    Basically the item by beach body is an overpriced combination of dextrose/malto and whey. I've been doing that same combination with a 2:! ratio on carbs and protein but I just cant seem to figure out how to get it to taste halfway decent without compromising nutrient uptake. Any ideas? Their flavor is orange, but I'd take anything that would make it palatable.

    the r & r drink is 4 to 1 carbs/protein and the cheaper, easier (& tastier) alternative I use is nonfat Chocolate milk.....yummmmmm

    How about regular protein powder + glyco maize. Mix your own protein:carb ratio.

    Can you add your own flavorings? E.g., powdered dried ginger ought to go with orange.

    Yeah, what I meant to say was, use your favorite flavor protein powder and use Glyco Maize (unflavored).

    Personally, I find that fruit flavored protein drinks/powders taste pretty bad. No way to get around it.
