    how to make (almost) any whey protein mix taste better.


    For the longest time I've had issues with the protein I buy tasting gross, but it's cheap so I just chug it down. Well I found this out a while ago, and I didn't see a thread about it. Easy way to improve the taste of a whey protein mix is to add 1tbl spoon of Peanut butter to the mix, if you have a blender. It seems to take the strange after taste off and tastes great. My chocolate whey protein mix with milk and peanut butter tasted just like a reese's peanutbutter cup.

    Thought everyone used PB in their shakes ..... it works way better when you used a high quality great tasting protein powder as well, I use TruScience chocolate and by itself it's excellent with PB incredible. I make all my shakes with milk too vs water, throw a half frozen banana in and you have a killer tasting post wo shake.

    guys, try some agave nectar. Only need a little if you are finding a powder w/ a chemical aftertaste. Also, call me odd, but i started using warm/hot water with my shakes. It seems to mix MUCH better and then, after its mixed, i add the ice to cool it down. Works like a charm for me.

    heat generally helps water break things down.. it has to do with heat reducing molecular density
