Man up.

Seriously, there's no secret to making a protein shake taste great. They all pretty much taste like crap.

Whiskey.
But in all seriousness, Fedorwins is right, they all taste far from good. You just have to man up and drink 'em. Or just not use the things, up to you.

mixing in a blender helps ALOT. u can add stuff like banana, honey, ice cream, etc............ if u want a good tasting drink go with muscle milk next time

You're not the only one. I can only drink the strawberry flavours.

On a slightly related topic, when I ran a marathon last month I grabbed a vanilla energy gel. Oh God, I thought I was eating pure cake icing. bleh!

I can suggest

a) mixing it with juice. The only con with that is that you are taking in more sugar. Ultimately, water is the best.

b) try another brand. Different brands taste different and you will get used to them as well.

c) drink it fast. I find that it tastes worse if I sip it and let it sit. (note that I drink mine at work after my workout, but mixing it in a coffee mug-- I don't drink coffee so I have to use the mug for something)

sometimes you just get a shit shake. You gotta find the perfect brand for yourself and the perfect flavour.

I got mad when my brand went out of business.
So now im on this other one that wont mix with water at all any good. It made me sick when i try it.
So now when i go to the gym at school i cant bring milk (itll go bad) b/c i spend several hours of the day there and dont workout till the afternoon.
SO i have been resorted to mixing it with Coffee. Its actually not so bad.

I disagree. Go buy the BSN Syntha-Six protein powder in chocolate. It tastes/smells like cake mix, and its amazing, by far the best supplement I've used. Add 2 scoops, cup of milk, good bit of crushed ice, and a banana and blend it. So good.

Well if you want to spend $1,000 on supplements, then yeah I guess you can find one or two not so bad ones.

I don't even stake protein shakes anymore, IMO they don't do too much for me at all and they have so much crap in them like Splenda.

Nope it was a vanilla one i used to get at Cosco. I liked it because you could mix it with water and not die. Was dec with water, and pretty good wiht milk.

Oh, I just thought I would ask because Strawberry (or rather banana berry)Whey more was the one I used to buy (good brand and tasted good with water alone), but they took it off the market due to the fact that it wasn't a popular flavour. You can still get the Chocolate, vanilla and plain flavours still.

EAS, Muscletech, and Xyience In my opion are three of the better tasting proteins on the market. Mixing strawberries and banannas can also add flavor. Hope this helped
